I had tried this beer once before during a tasting, and I remember loving the blend between cherrywood-smoke and funky saison yeast. Unfortunately, it didn’t mesh so well with this bottle. The beer poured a surprisingly clean and clear orange-yellow with a small head of white bubbles that had mediocre retention. The aroma was slightly smoky, but with a fierce spicy yeast-funk. In taste, the beer was harshly spicy, just a touch of acidity, and a bitterness that came from both the yeast and the hops and dried out the finish. The booze of this beer also came through rather oddly, and helped to add to the harsh spicy character of the yeast. The balance was a bit off. Flavors danced from very light smoke (I wanted more!) to Band-Aid and bubblegum flavors, all wrapped up in the harsh, spicy pepper from the yeast and a touch of booze. The phenols are a bit too strong… In the mouth, the beer felt medium bodied with a medium carbonation that did provide a nice scrub. The beer felt a bit oily, yet rough in mouthfeel, and the mouth was left dry and slightly scraped. Overall, I was a little disappointed with this beer. I remember liking it so much with my first bottle, and you always want a tribute beer to taste great. Unfortunately, this beer didn’t quite deliver. It needs more smoke and balance.

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.

Bottled 1/3/14.
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 -1.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

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.
