Smoked Saison

27 Jan

I went to Austin, TX for the first time in 2013 and had a couple smoked saison beers at Jester King Brewery while I was there. I brewed this beer before ever trying a smoked beer, and was surprised to find that I got the flavor profile down pretty close. Only issue? I learned that I’m not a huge fan of this beer variety after a few tastes. This taught me a simple lesson about home brewing: don’t brew a beer style you’re not into drinking! This may seem obvious, but I was sure a smoked beer would’ve been a unique and interesting drink. Didn’t pan out that way. If you like beer with smoked malts, this beer would score around 82% but I can’t objectively rate it myself.
