Smells of yeast and cigarette butts, with vanilla and lemon undertones - not real desirable but interesting none the less. In the mouth it's yeast and smoke with a nice creamy mouth-feel. Definitely different, but it works well for me.

Difficult to review
It certainly is a Big Saison.
It's also very smokey and really quite alcoholic - so any zest of saison gets overtaken by alcohol warmth and booze. Too much booze really in the mix and whilst it is complex, it just ends up alcoholic warm.
Ends up a being more of a gimmick than beer, really,

I bet it's a real nice Saison without the smoke. Smoke overpowers it for me, makes no sense for a saison to be dominated by smoke.

A bit sweet, and not so smokey as "cherrywood" might suggest.

Served from a 22oz bottle in a Teku glass

A: Deep, darker orange with a nice finger of head. Slightly hazy.
S: Smoke, belgian yeast, smoked ham, pepper, tiny bit of funky smell.
T: Upfront a nice clean belgian yeastiness, little bit of cherry sweetness, smokiness takes over mid mouth and lingers in the aftertaste.
M: Full mouthfeel with medium to low carbonation
O: Nice saison if you're in the mood to change it up from a more traditional interpretation of the style. Tastes good if you dig smoked beers that aren't overly smokey.

Big cherry taste with carbonation to break up the sweetness. Meaty smoke on the back-end helps hide the alcohol. Great beer.
