Bomber poured into a snifter. The brew appears a hazed golden copper color with an offwhite cap 2+ fingers strong that fades back to a thin film. Stringy lace sticks to the glass.
The aroma opens strangely fruity and tropical to herbal with a firm smokiness. Under the fruited quality is a touch of clove and yeastiness. The fruit plus sweetness coupled with smoke makes for a unique combo that is very atypical of a saison.
The taste is fruity with almost a woody quality before the smokiness sets in. Herbal to fruity bitterness is there with a bold alcohol aspect. The flavors are not terrible, they just dont mingle well together. The phenolics are mild compared to what I was expecting.
This is quite a mishmosh clashing brew. Very boozy and strangely sweet/tropical with a lot of smokiness. As it warms, some phenolic plastic notes come out taking this in an even stranger bad direction. I really wanted to like this but the "imperialized" aspect of it was sadly focused too much on characteristics I dont like (plastic, sweetness, etc.)

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.
