Poured into a tulip out of a 22oz bottle. A smoked Saison, two of my favorite styles paired together. Can't wait!
Pours a crystal clear dark gold with a fizzy one finger white head. Head retention and lacing are not all that great but that can almost be expected of a beer of this strength.
There is a pleasant smokiness on the aroma married with spicy pear and apple along with just the slightest bit of funk. I really like that the smoke is not overdone here.
A good deal of smoke with the flavor but not enough to mask the definite Saison character underneath. Lots of fruity spice along with just the slightest bit of barnyard funk. Dry finish with just some extra bit of dryness on the back of the throat.
Overall, Stone did a very good job with this brew. A love the marriage of styles here and it works so well. I will probably pick up another bottle of this.

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.
