On tap at 2014 Most Arrogant Bar Bash (Barleys in Greenvillle, SC).

Pours with a good white head over a medium amber body. Excellent clarity.

Aroma:herbal; too musty/ wet wood.

Flavor: mildly bitter and slightly sour. Aftertaste is a bit unpleasant. Hint of bad wine.

Feel: Good medium-low carbonation. Smooth.

O: weakest of about 12 beers sampled at this Stone event.

22oz (bottled 12/20/2013) into a tulip. Pours a slightly hazy, glowing orange color w/ a soft frothy white head and nice sticky lacing. Looks really nice.

Aroma is a healthy dose of Belgian funk along with a nice floral hop presence. I don't detect much, if any, applewood smoke aroma.

Taste is citrusy and funky, some sweet bubblegum. Still not picking up the smoke, but there's a vague tea-like quality that might be the smoked malt.

Mouthfeel is nicely balanced and soft, with a gentle bitterness on the finish.

Overall a pretty average saison, but it has a nice orange citrus quality that makes it hard to put down.

1 PINT 6 FLUID OUNCE bottle
Served in a Stone tulip glass

A - This beer is amber in color with golden highlights. It is topped with an inch of off-white head.

S - The aroma is floral and fruity. There is a grassy smell as well as some subtle smoke.

T - It starts out with the floral and fruity taste. I get some bitterness in the middle which segues to a smoky finish.

M - Moderate

O - This beer grew on me as I drank it. It is different and took a little getting used to. I really liked the fruitiness and fruit flavors up front. I think if the smoke was removed it would be a better beer. It is a unique tasting experience, and I am glad I got to try it.

A- Light amber color. Poured a creamy 1 finger head. Awesome trailing and lacing.

S- Big bready intro. Apple, pear, some lemon, banana, caramel, mango, and just a touch of smoke. It also seems like there's a fresh earthy hop presence. A few times I could've sworn I smelled raspberry in there.

T- Apple, pear, biscuity yeast, banana, sweet orange, caramel, pink grapefruit, and burnt wood leads things off. Ever so slightly souring. Earthy hop and big bitter grapefruit make a big showing mid way. Huge bitterness with a nice dash of smoke on the finish. Aftertaste is like grapefruit rind meets burnt bread and charred wood. Very drying.

M- Medium body. crisp carbonation. Semi oily. Intensely drying.

O- I enjoyed this beer. This was one of those that I couldn't drink very often, but I knew damn well how well it was put together. Wide range of flavors and sensations.

Poured a nice, rich, cloudy orange with a thin white head. It looks good, like a tripel, but not incredibly saison-like. Scents of fruit, apricot, some citrus, clove, some banana, and slight Belgian yeast and smokiness. A very complex, well done aroma that is quite pleasing. Flavor begins with apricot and fruit, some medicinal hop bitterness in the background and bitter citrus peel hints. The middle of the sip continues this way along with some slight sourness appearing while the finish is smoky and bitter with a bitter aftertaste. A good, strong, sweet, fruity, bitter and smoky flavor profile. Not to saison style at all but good nonetheless. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with moderate carbonation and a slightly sticky, semi-drying feel. A good sipping beer. Overall this was an interesting beer with an excellent aroma and mouthfeel and a good flavor. Not to style, but that's fine.
