Poured into a snifter.

Stone did a good job with the presentation on this beer. The color on the beer is orange and copper, and it's mostly clear and transparent with consistent carbonation. The head is a finger thick and chewy-looking and persists well.

I get more goodness on the nose, which is very citrusy. There's a lot of orange peel there, sweet malt, mild hoppiness and some honey. I don't get any smoke on the nose.

Then the beer hits my tongue and the smoke is thick. It's a big surprise, really. Very much reminiscent of the Schlenkerla I had a week earlier. There's the same smoked ham aroma, but this is complemented by citrus, particularly grapefruit, as well as some earthy, yeasty and woody notes. There's certainly a lot going on.

I mostly like how this beer drinks, with a good medium body, slight effervescence and a bitter and dry finish. However, the yeasty saison-like quality to the beer is a bit overbearing and somewhat commandeers the beer.

In the end, it's a unique, tasty complex and enjoyable beer. Considering the body on this, I wouldn't quite consider it an easy-sipper for the summer months, although it does have the traits of a saison which to me suggests summer. (1,204 characters)

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. (502 characters)

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. (322 characters)

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 (546 characters)

3.69/5  rDev -3.7%
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. (410 characters)
