Poured from a bomber into a Brewer's Art goblet. Moderate hand. Brewed on 12/20/13 according to the label.

A: Light copper with good clarity. 1 finger of slightly off-white head. Ok retention. Moderate lacing.

S: Belgian-type yeast with floral notes, light honey, spice, lemon, citric acid. Indistinct fruit. Pretty nice, although no smoke to speak of.

T: Round spice with light tartness initially. Yields to a moderate, slightly herbal, hop bitterness. Semi-dry to dry finish. There is a mild, lingering sourness throughout that is nice. Light alcohol for the ABV (10.5%). Light wood notes, but minimal smoke presence.

M: Moderate carbonation with moderate body. A touch light on the fizz for a saison, I'd say.

O: I enjoyed this beer. I was a bit let down with regards to the smoke; however, it had a nice saison nose and I definitely enjoyed the tartness. Drank easily for a 10.5%er. I'm curious how a bit of age might treat this one.

Prost! (954 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)

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)
