Picked up a bomber from Total Wine in early March for $6.49.

Beer poured a cloudy orange with very little head.

Nose is classic Belgian saison yeast strain, some citrus, with a hint of smokiness.

Taste is classic saison and then the smoked malts kick in. There is some citrus and the finish is somewhat dry.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied and smooth. Normally i would expect a lighter field given this is a belgian style brew this is essentially an imperial saison.

Overall this is a pretty interesting brew. It definitely blurs the style lines but that is what makes things fun in the tasting game.

This one comes off the tap with a nice, creamy almost-white head about a finger tall that shows resilience and falls slowly during the session. The brew itself is a clear and brightly shining orange-gold. Lacing is dropped in solid patching.
Smoke is gentle but there, at a very nice level as it makes itself known without charging. A bit of leaf, almost herbal, rests beneath that, and then some earth comes out. There's a bit of spiciness, both kitchen and pepper.
The flavor lets the smoke build on the tongue, and the surprise to me is how much fruit is in the taste. It's got lots of brightness, and the way it works with the smoke is very nice. It has a slight tartness, some citrus flavors making some headway in the middle to finish with the smoke and a light lingering leaf. The way the smoke builds without ever overpowering, adding more tang, or getting acrid displays a mastery. Earthy and spicy play a supporting role, always noticeable without vying for attention.
The body is about medium, and it may have a bit of heft for a Saison. It is bright and the crispness makes it very refreshing. Smoothness isn't lacking, either.
