A rare miss from the folks at least for me...

Love the idea of this but the execution didn't hit the mark... the smokiness works in the aromas but it shifts this seriously in the taste dept and I didn't get it... the smoke battles with the funkiness of the base beer and muddles everything together...

I wanted to like this beer as its everywhere around here right now... but I wont be getting this one again.... I don't see how age will affect this to the positive at all...

look: 3 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Pours a very bright and transparent orange, very thin white lacing lingers. Smell is very typical, cloves, banana, yeast, with a touch of smoke. Taste follows pretty close with the wood and smoke being a little more apparent on the aftertaste. Grate range of flavor all the way from start to finish. Fruits and florals up front, some grass and bread in the middle. Feel is medium bodied, smooth with low carbonation.

Overall, a great saison, fairly true to form with a great flavor profile and the added bonus of some smoked uniqueness.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Appearance - Pours a bright, clear sunset orange with a white, near 2 finger head. Fair retention leads to a thin, broken layer of suds across the surface. Spotty lacing with little stick.

Smell - Funk and citrus notes hit first. Green banana. Light smokiness that increases as the beer warms. Also, a bit of Vick's Chloraseptic throat spray.

Taste - Highly phenolic, giving the brew a very 'chloraseptic throat spray' character to go along with a moderate smoked wood flavor. Hints of banana. Mild spice. Citrus hops come through in the finish ,though the 'chloraseptic spray' quality lingers well into the aftertaste, and is even slightly numbing. An odd, but original and, dare I say, likeable flavor.

Mouthfeel - Medium to full in body with lightly tingly carbonation. Very smooth for the size; I'd never guess this as a 10.5% beer.

Overall - Maybe I've just got odd or sensitive tastebuds, but this screams Chloraseptic spray to me. Hard to believe this is a 10.5% beer; drinks closer to 7 or 8%. In all, I'd say I like it, in small doses, but 22 ounces are just too much for a beer this strong and strange. I will say it's cool what Stone did here in producing this man's own beer recipe and dedicating it to his memory and letting us all get a chance to try it.

This is quite a sweet “saison” with very minimal smoked tones to it. Please note that I wrote it as “saison” because it really isn’t. This is much more a Belgian ale. If it were noted as such, I’d be rating a bit higher. As it is, the smoked tones are really accents at best, and barely that. Thick sweet character overall. A decent drinker, but not blowing me away. Good as a one and done.
