one finger of very white foam, lots of carbonation (as expected for a saison), decent lacing but of course this is amped up so that makes sense in that context, slight golden to tinge orange hue, a nice looking offering
the cherrywood floats atop the usual bready/doughy saison odor, a dash of lemon, pretty straight forward but nice, you also get some of that effervescent seltzer like quality
pretty substantial in the mouth, much heavier than most saisons and also the carbonation is not as bright, the cherrywood almost turns this into something else... finding this hard to describe and usually I am one verbose mofo, this drinks like an amped up ale with some really interesting tart notes on the edges but yet a doughy/sugary thing happening in the main stanza, there is nary a hint of the ABV awaiting to kick your rump (aside from a mild warming in the ole gullet), very smooth drinking beer, not a hair out of place on this thing, really unique flavor combinations here.
saison ? I suppose so, but it really does not matter this is really damn tasty and kicked up in a big way.
Grab a bottle.

A cool story on the bottle,pours into a large tulip glass a clear medium golden with a amber tinge,man I love the color and the thick creamy shite head.After a few good swirls I pick up some overipe juicy citrus fruits along with some medicinal and spiced yeast notes.Yeasty and mildly phenolic with some clove spice standing out upfront on the palate,the some comes thru providing some meatiness and rich fruitiness,viney hops linger in the finish.This is a pretty complex and damn fine beer,RIP Matt.

In a snifter the beer was a perfectly clear gold color with just a tiny white head.
Aroma was smoky, fruity, and spicy. A little alcohol was noticeable.
Cherries in the taste. Smoke. A little peppery. A little funky. Still some alcohol.
Things combined well in this beer. Very pleasant.
A nice tribute.

Bomber bottle, bottled 12-20-13.
Pours pretty clear, orangy amber, off white moderate cap, leaves a tiny bubble sheen, thin collar and fine scattered lacing.
On the nose I'm getting some citrus, lite smoke, and some alcohol burn.
Full flavor, robust, complex,brash n bold. Not for newbies or the faint hearted. More lime and pineapple all over the palate. I get most of the smoke in the finish, buts its pretty faint. Mostly its more and more heavy citric fruit, phenols and a sort of burnt band aids under note.
A lot going on and I like it

3.69/5 rDev -1.9%
Appearance: low carbonation, minimal head, clear, caramel in color
Smell: cedar, hay, and pepper
Taste: apple, lemon, tangerine, hay, light cedar and smoke towards the end
Mouthfeel: sweet and funky, light body, moderate carbonation
Overall: Very clean, complex, and fruity tasting. A nice sipper. I wish the cherry wood smoke was a bit more prominent, but this is still very tasty. I would get this again.
