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 ;)

Purchased in Washington DC in May 2017. Slightly opaque yellow with no head. Low carbonation. Very mixed taste on the palette. Slightly tart, smoked, hopped and malty with a hint of saison. Personally not a fan of this balance. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft at Hopfenstark Station Ho.st, Montreal. Clear pale gold, white head. Aroma of smoke and sour fruit. Taste is mild smoke, hay, tart fruit. Interesting, but this combination doesn’t really work for me. It does seem like a smoked Berliner Weisse rather than a smoked saison.

ABUSEDGOAT (2729) - California, USA - JUN 1, 2017
Cloudy golden color with a white head. Aroma is strongly smoky with notes of pale malt, wheat, yeast. Lighter bodied, lesser smoky flavor with a very light sourness. Different to say the least.

Luvystypotables (1917) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - MAY 26, 2017
An earthy aroma of Belgian yeast with a hint of banana. Pours a hazy pale gold not much head despite a lot of carbonation. Taste of banana, spice and a bit of earthy Belgian yeast. Medium body and a spicy finish.

Something about this caught my eye. I don’t remember if it was the label, the teaser, or the idea of a smoked saison. Whatever the reason it jumped into my cart at Party Source without a second thought. The results defy easy categorization. Maybe you need to try it three times in different situations before you can truly grasp everything that is going on.

Aroma / Appearance - A carbonated golden base dances under soft ivory head. The smooth presence belies smoky wheat, earth, and hay. The mixture is part saison and part rauchbier. Being so light it also manages to almost simulate aspects of a golden ale.

Flavor / Palate - Smoked wheat, lemon custard, and sweetness permeate the air. Suddenly the tastes of a barn fire flood the mouth with a mashup of hay, earth, and ash. The outcome delivers more than just a clever name - this beer deserves a sample if you’ve got an adventurous friend or two.

Michael27 (1876) - Berlin, GERMANY - APR 10, 2017
Fresh from the tap at Muted Horn in Berlin. Light cloudy yellow without a remarkable foam layer. At begin light yeast spicyness. Later comes a touch of smoke. Very light.
