4.13/5 rDev +10.1%
A: Hazy pale amber with a moderate half-inch of foam.
S: interesting! Spicy phenols from yeast, with more phenols from the actual smoke, with some grassy hop notes.
T: Thankfully smoke is not overstated in the flavor--it blends rather nicely with the ripe yeasty grape-fruitiness. Bitterness is only moderate, but there's some pleasant grassy, floral hops. All this blends much better than I expected, and this is a big yet subtle beer.
M: Quite light for such a strong beer--that takes craftsmanship.
While I don't think I'll buy it again, this was a good drinking experience, very interesting and tasty.

A 22oz bomber picked up at Green's on Buford Hwy
A - Cloudy copper, with lots of sediment and 1 full finger of head. No sticky lace. But looks delicious
S - Sweet malts and a hint of smoke.
T - Sweet up front, belgian candy sugar dominates. Some funky-ness going on in the background and in the aftertaste. Cherries are noticeable too. Slightly smoky.
M - Medium bodied and well carbonated
O - An excellent smoked saison with a hint of cherries. Definitely a tasty brew. Try it if you can find it!

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.

4.05/5 rDev +8%
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...
