Poured from a 22 oz. bottle into a Duvel tulip glass.
Appearance: Pours a bright and fairly clear golden orange with a moderate amount of bubbles. About one finger of off white head that quickly fades. Leaves a decent amount of lacing.
Smell: A yeasty and fruity Belgian style aroma with good hints of fruit and smoked malt. Upfront Belgian yeast with hints of farmhouse funk, clove, and black pepper. Big scent of the cherrywood smoked malt. Fruit hints of apple, pear, and banana along with a little orange and lemon zest. Sweet scent of candied sugar. Pale malt with hints of biscuit, grains, straw, and cracker. Hop presence is pretty mild. A pretty nice aroma.
Taste: Like the aroma hints at, a yeasty, fruity, and fairly sweet Belgian style taste with good notes of fruit and smoked malt. Belgian yeast with some good notes of clove, black pepper, and farmhouse funk. Good taste of the cherrywood smoked malt that is quite noticeable but not overwhelming. Fruit notes of green apple, pear, banana, lemon, and slight orange peel. Sweet notes of candied sugar. Malt notes of grains, straw, biscuit, and cracker. Subtle background hops. A really nice and unique taste. The smoke blends in well.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a medium to high level of carbonation. Juicy and fairly slick. Somewhat hot from the alcohol and smoke but its still pretty smooth considering.
Overall: A pretty good and interesting twist on the Saison style. The smoke is noticeable but blends in well with the yeast and fruit flavors.
Cheers to Matt.

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.
