Poured from a bottle into a tulip glass.
A - Pours a cloudy yellow/gold with a meringue-like two-finger white head. Nice ringlets of lacing.
S - Strong aroma of banana, clove, lemon, Belgian yeasts, damp wood, and a hint of barnyard funk.
T - Nice, sweet, woody smoke flavor which combines seamlessly with the beers other elements: pink grapefruit, golden apple, hay, honey, clove, and fine ground white pepper. Smoke comes back yet again in the finish, (more and more as it warms) but it's not that artificial "liquid smoke" taste, more of the woodiness imparted to salmon when cooking it on a cedar plank. Booze slightly warming on the tongue but not distracting.
M - Medium bodied, with medium (but soft) carbonation. Oddly creamy and somewhat slick at the same time. Wet clean finish, but then the flavors linger into a bit of a puckering effect. Honestly, I have never had a mouth feel quite like this one.
O - I really enjoyed this. Bold, complex, and non-traditional. I don't usually like saisons, especially when they lean toward sourness, but this one was more sweet and thus, a winner for me.
