COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
It’s not a smoke beer. It’s not a tart Berliner Weisse. It’s maybe a weird saison. BerlinerRauchSaison. Yes! Low gravity beer with good presence of wheat. A small layer of smoke malt disappears after a few sips. And light tartness and spice from the Saison yeast. Refreshing and flavourful at the same time.

À l’oeil : Elle est jaune pâle, trouble et sans aucune mousse, même si elle est fraîche... Visuel pauvre. Au nez : On a la levure en pleine face ! Poivre citronné et blé en note de fond. C’est déjà plus invitant ! Au goût : Une note boucanée se pointe subtilement à la première gorgée, pour disparaître ensuite ! Les épices de levure reviennent à la charge, accompagnées d’une bonne dose de sucre. C’est du jus alcoolique ;)

16 ounce can at home. Big, fluffy head. Little bit of yeasty aromas. Hazy, straw like in color. Taste smooth and somewhat smoked or burnt. No real after taste. Pretty interesting brew which I would drink again. Cheers!

UPDATED: NOV 18, 2017 Can. It poured a pale gold with a quickly dissipating white head. The aroma is smoky with some light fruit and spice notes. Light bodied. It is ok but I am not a big fan of rauch beers.

16 ounce Ca. Light gold pour with a small creamy white head. Interesting nose has hints of smoke, yeast, wheat and lemon. Flavor follows nose with notes of tart citrus, bread and grassy hops. Light dry finish. Quite unique.

Golden orange. Smell is anice balance of sweetish malt, farmhouse yeast and smoke. Light campfire flavor with a little fruit. Not great, but pretty cool.

16 oz can poured at Matt’s. A cloudy pale yellow pour with no head. Smokey ham aroma. Flavor is a soft smokey meat with soft saison typical hidden behind. Weird! All I can really say about this one.

Can in Seattle. Thanks Andrew. Cloudy yellow, dissipated head. Huge porky smoke nose, with some lemony undertones. Lighter, hazy sip. Lots of smokiness, but also some ester and yeast. Strange, but balances out well. Interesting.
