A-hazy orange amber color with a nice off-white head and good lacing

S-lemon, grains, strong bandaid, belgian yeast, light fruit and spices

T-grain, floral, honey, yeast, slight tartness, little nutmeg and apple, straw

F-medium body with moderate carbonation, crisp and a little dry

O-decent saison, but I prefer the regular to this offering, easy drinking if you get past the bandaid nose

750ml into snifter.

A: Pours a deep honey color with a fluffy, huge, whipped egg-white head that very slowly faded into a fuzzy and thick collar.
S: Meaty, savory, smoke fills my nose. I get notes of band aids and maybe a hint of mild lemon and caramel beneath.
T: Dirty dish water, peat, sour old grains, boiled meat, and faint citrus. The finish has a terrible sourness, and the aftertaste is peppery and full of grain.
M: Medium-full body, fluffy carbonation, muddy, sour, greasy mouthfeel.
O: Bad bottles are bad. I've heard of these smoke bombs but haven't encountered one yet. Very disappointing. I will have to revisit this again with hopefully a good bottle as I am not getting any of the flavors other reviewers are describing.

Poured from a capped & corked 750 mL bottle into a Brewer's Art goblet. Moderately gentle hand. No date visible, but presumably from this past winter.

A: Hazy, orange-brown body with 2 fingers of off-white head. Ok retention. Nice lacing.

S: Belgian yeast with musty, fruity notes. Apple and apricot. Hay. Bread.

T: Spicy, earthy yeast opens and introduces a slightly nutty, rustic maltiness. Light hop bitterness on a fairly dry finish. Alcohol is consistent with 8% or just slightly more present than expected. Pretty clean finish with light floral elements in the aftertaste.

M: Moderate carbonation with moderate body. Fuller than your typical saison, but fits well with the flavor profile.

O: A tasty, malt-forward saison. Reminded me a bit of a biere de garde without losing it's fundamental saison qualities. Probably would have enjoyed this more a few months ago, but on a temperate May day it still drank pretty damn nicely.

Prost!
