batch was mid '16

After hearing mixed reviews about it fresh, I held onto mine for an extended period of time. Additional tartness, pleasant smokiness finishing with the trademark SARA funk. If it tasted this way in the beginning I could see why the harsh reviews but thankfully I had patience with it.

Nose light ash, tartness, citrus, faint pepper, oak, faint peat. Taste faint smoke, vanilla, light spice, woody, lemon, faint meat with the finish, oaky.

Thanks Brian.

A spectacular amalgamation of delicate smoke and gentle funk, this beer perfectly marries a delicate but firm smoke character with a soft wine barrel funk character. Even the funk seems a little delicate for a SARA beer, and the tartness is reserved. Delicate vinous notes along with wet earth. Medium-light in body and softly carbonated, this beer is exquisite. Almost Upright-like.

Don't rate this beer unless you like smoked beers. Because guess what, ITS SMOKED. Layers upon layers of mouth quenching tartness with bright acidity. Perfect amount of (smoked) funk. Just crisp flavors all around. This beer is art.

On tap it was a tasty, Sante style saison with a touch of smoke, out of the bottle it tasted like someone stirred it with a flaming stick, worth a try.
