12.7oz bottle: Thanks Kaggie! This one pours a slightly hazy, straw yellow color. There was a HUGE frothy, fizzy white head on it that took awhile to go down. It has a nice nose to it. Pretty standard fare for a saison: grassy, a bit earthy, spices, some faint fruits, woody, lots going on there. The taste is also good. Some spiciness, faint fruits, wheat, yeastiness. A very nice beer.

Tasted at the brewery in Oct 2013 as a 1 year aged bottle.

A - Deep golden color. Low white head. Good lacing. Just slightly cloudy appearance.

S - Grainy (probably pilsner) malt. Spicy black pepper note. Light smoky, woody note.

T - Grainy pilsner malt provides the backbone. There is a strong smoke note that is almost peat-like, but I'm assuming it is from mesquite smoke, as some of their other beers feature that. Spice notes are there but overpowered by the smoke. Some alcohol sweetness and residual malt sweetness in the finish.

M - Medium to full body. Moderate hops bitterness. Moderate prickly carbonation. Slight alcohol burn.

O - I find this hoppier and not as dry as a traditional saison. The smoke really stands out as non-traditional, but is not unpleasant. This is a complex, enjoyable beer.
