look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Poured from a bottle into a tulip glass.

A - Pours a cloudy yellow/gold with a meringue-like two-finger white head. Nice ringlets of lacing.

S - Strong aroma of banana, clove, lemon, Belgian yeasts, damp wood, and a hint of barnyard funk.

T - Nice, sweet, woody smoke flavor which combines seamlessly with the beers other elements: pink grapefruit, golden apple, hay, honey, clove, and fine ground white pepper. Smoke comes back yet again in the finish, (more and more as it warms) but it's not that artificial "liquid smoke" taste, more of the woodiness imparted to salmon when cooking it on a cedar plank. Booze slightly warming on the tongue but not distracting.

M - Medium bodied, with medium (but soft) carbonation. Oddly creamy and somewhat slick at the same time. Wet clean finish, but then the flavors linger into a bit of a puckering effect. Honestly, I have never had a mouth feel quite like this one.

O - I really enjoyed this. Bold, complex, and non-traditional. I don't usually like saisons, especially when they lean toward sourness, but this one was more sweet and thus, a winner for me. (1,109 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)
