Poured into a tulip out of a 22oz bottle. A smoked Saison, two of my favorite styles paired together. Can't wait!

Pours a crystal clear dark gold with a fizzy one finger white head. Head retention and lacing are not all that great but that can almost be expected of a beer of this strength.

There is a pleasant smokiness on the aroma married with spicy pear and apple along with just the slightest bit of funk. I really like that the smoke is not overdone here.

A good deal of smoke with the flavor but not enough to mask the definite Saison character underneath. Lots of fruity spice along with just the slightest bit of barnyard funk. Dry finish with just some extra bit of dryness on the back of the throat.

Overall, Stone did a very good job with this brew. A love the marriage of styles here and it works so well. I will probably pick up another bottle of this.

On tap at the Stone Company Store in Pasadena, CA.

Pours a clear orange with a foamy off-white head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Foamy swaths of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is slightly sour with malt, grain, smoke, fruit, and yeast aromas. Taste is much the same with slightly sour malt, smoke, and fruit flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of smoke bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and acidic mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with a fairly subdued smoke presence in my opinion.

Bottle split with my Girlie poured into Belgian Imperial glasses.

Very clean Orange color after pouring into the glasses with about an even inch of head on each. White color which lingered nicely along the edges of the glass for the entire time.

Very earthy malty scent with subtle hints of smoke and a light amount of the cherry from the cherrywood smoked barrels.

The initial taste has a light amount of smokeyness with a hint of cherry. The Belgian malt is subtle up front which lingers with the smoke in the aftertaste.

Light feel, taste does not linger too long on the tongue, but does linger slightly after each sip.

Delicious, I hope they do another take on this in the future as it could be a winner!

Had this on 2014-01-28 in Columbia, PA

A - Clear orange/tea with a short tan head that fades quickly with little lacing.

S - Orange candy, mild-moderate smoke, mildly sweet roasted malt. Nice. Not real strong. Certainly doesn't overdo the smoky aroma.

T - Smoky up-front; much more than the smell. Cherries, clove, pepper and decent orange zest bitterness. Brown bread and caramel provide a substantial malt backbone. Reasonable bitterness for balance. Alcohol is noticeable but well-integrated. Dries pretty nicely. Aftertaste is of lingering smoke, malt and cherry.

M - Medium-full body and light carbonation. Substantial. Syrupy.

O - An unusual but enjoyable tasting beer. Not something I'd seek out again and again; but it's always nice to try something unique that works. This does.

I bought this after picking it up at my local beer wholesaler, realizing it was was still cold I decided to buy it. Not normally one for saisons, I decided to give this a chance.
By the time I poured this, I had forgotten this was a 10.5% beer, and did not remember until I looked it up here. In short, the alcohol is hidden well. The taste is hard to pinpoint but It is definitely a beer I am glad I tried. I would drink this again, it was much different from the trappist ales and imperial IPA's I tend to stick with.
