Pours almost crystal clear, golden in color with an off white to pale tan 2 finger head that leaves a bit of sticky lacing. A few carbonation bubbles rise through the center of the glass.
Sweet and spicy aroma. Cinnamon. Earthy/smokey Belgian funk. Potpourri. Tropical fruit--mango?
Dry at first, but after the swallow, sweet malts become more assertive. Smoked cherrywood is dominant and unique in my experience. A little boozy. The bitterness of the smoked malt in the follow through.
Medium to full in body. It might be considered creamy except for the bite of the carbonation and the alcohol. Slightly drying and warming as well.
A very complex brew with plenty of character to maintain one's interest. While the alcohol is not all that obtrusive, it soon becomes obvious that this is a sipping beer, and one that's quite appropriate for this snowy winter's night.

Served in an accidental half-litre glass (lol).
A: Hazy gold.
S: Sour and smoky. Lemons?
T/M: I don't really care for it. Way too weird. It's initially overpowering -- wood, smoke, meat, sweet-strong booze, artificial maraschino -- before quickly fading into a kinda sour-sticky bitterness than lingers. I hate to make the comparison, but...bile.
O: Not to my taste. After about a dozen sips, I pawned it off on a friend. NOT recommended.
Serving type: on-tap

A - A bit more than a finger's worth of slightly late to develop crisp densely packed froth that is modestly off white in color... Average retention segues to a nice lopsided veil of lacing a slight but rich and creamy collar... The color is a vibrant orangish amber... Largely still with a limited few carbonation bubbles rising sporadically and randomly throughout...
S - The nose is vibrant and attention getting... A mix of orange and lemon candy to start... Next come some additional sweet candied sugars... There is a very subtle smokiness present that compliments the aforementioned sweetness tremendously... There is also a strong Belgian yeast component... Very unique... Very pleasing...
T - A kiss of sweetness to start... Candied sugars... Light sweet citrus notes... The Belgian yeast components are next... The cherry wood smoke starts to build slowly... The smokiness reminds me of Easter ham... There are some very subtle red wine tannin notes buried way beneath the surface... A very light medicinal presence on the very deep finish... Again very unique and very pleasing...
M - Medium bodied... Light to medium carbonation... A bit sticky... Even and well balanced... Finishes with a touch of dryness and turns slightly chalky on the distant finish...
D - A very well crafted brew that is unlike anything else that I have ever experienced... I did not Matt Courtright, but this beer lends the drinker to see the unique nature of the human being... It is as advertised - a Smoked Saison... A bit of a sipper, but quite enjoyable...
