Pours a slightly brownish yellow, light oak. Glowy in the sun. Small white head. Little to no lacing and the bubbles fade pretty quickly. The aroma is a mix of light smoke and earthy saison flavors. It's all smoked mushrooms and fresh pale malt. I'm always a little nervous about smoked saisons, and while this beer didn't wow me from the first sip, it's quickly growing on me. It's like drinking a rustic saison in front of a campfire. It's relatively sweet with an umami kicker. The finish is refreshing and dry despite that meaty middle. Feel is full and relatively heavy for a saison, though light for a smoked beer, of course. Very interesting stuff. I'd sorta like to try a twist on it, maybe fruit or barrel.

Pours a deep orange with a filmy white head. Intriguing smell of apricots, meat and salt. Actually a really nice combo of sweet and savory. Flavor is dry and complex, layers of smokey notes, cured pork and salty cheese. Ultra-fresh grains color the bone-dry finish. This beer contains multitudes, melded gracefully. Sublime balance between the smoke and the saison.
