3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Stone does a lot of stuff as of late. It’s always hit and miss with them for me. A smoke saison? Well, it had a copper hue. Thin head. A bit malty, more than I like in a saison. Boozy. I think the maltiness hinders the taste. It needs to be more smoother. It has a cloying taste. And the finish is way too bitter. Its alright but not great. Stone puts out overrated and overhyped beers consistently.
