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.

Strangely captivating melange of smoke , cherry, saison yeast, and fruity esters.

Sweetish and fascinating. Well done. It does age well, and I'm on fourth bottle in 2 years. I reckon the palate is close to JW Lees English Barleywine.

RIP Matt Courtright.

Bomber split between me and Scott. Got this as a birthday gift from Melissa. Thanks!

A - Pours to a tulip glass a nice hazy orange color with a white head.

S - Huuuge smoked ham and wood, salty peppery woody smoky ham. Some dirty citrus, banana, funky straw, bread. Kinda rubbery and boozy.

T - Smoke feels less intense here, but also a little more generic smoke rather than a salty meat thing, which probably works better here actually. Variety of tart fruit, spice, grapes and earthiness. Bread and farmy yeasts.

M - Kind of wild with the alcohol presence but a decent feel otherwise. Lightish and somewhat crisp body with medium-high carbonation.

O - Glad this beer exists and that it supports a good cause, can't say I'm a huge fan of it though. The smoke+saison never really harmonize, both sides seem alright by themselves but just clash, the 10.5% alcohol seems like overkill for this as well.
