Brown colored ale, thin light brown ring of head to it, not much lacing. Herbal spiciness and a dallop of roasty smoke to it.

Pepper, cocoa, chocolate. Mild spice from the pepper and 'vintage' hops. Substantial bitterness in a style I was not expecting to find such from. This is actually pretty complex, a saison sipper if you will. Wasn't really my cup of tea though. Didn't have any sourness, the chocolate was underplayed for my tastes. Seemed more like a dressed up brown ale. Would recommend for big saison fans, otherwise, probably not.

On draught at Bailey's, served in an imperial pint, Saison Minuit is a dark, cola brown with a tan head leaving foamy lace.

Smell is sweet, tropical fruits. Good, identifiable saison esters, a touch of grape as well, nice.

Taste is really quite complex. It's got some of the quinine like minerality that I look for in a saison, some dry, herbal hops...but then there is a smoked malt character, not dominating, pleasantly integrated even, but surprising. A dusting of chocolate.

Mouthfeel is very dry, moderately carbonated, and medium light bodied.

Drinkability pretty high. This is an interesting, and well executed twist on a classically styled base saison. I'm impressed with their restraint, just a kiss of smoke provides texture without dominance. Worth seeking out.
