This is my first review, so I'm going to do my best as far as explanation of what I experienced, as well as terminology.

Serving type-I poured this beer from a bottle into my Maui Brewing Company snifter.

Appearance-Right away I noticed the cloudiness of the beer. It had an almost orange-like tint to it. Looked like different juices mixed together. Golden brown orange.

Smell-Had a very strong smoke to it, I actually liked that. Not too overpowering, but was the focal point of the first whiff. Briefly smelled a smoked cherry, woody smell.

Taste-Taste was a lot like the smell. Could definitely taste the high alcohol content on this one. A lot like Stone's Saison they put out, just a lot more smoke.

Mouthfeel-Was surprised at first, almost a champagne like feel in the mouth and back of the throat. This didn't take away from the beer, if anything it added to the taste. Was a major aspect of the first taste of the beer.

Overall- I would definitely drink again if given the opportunity, however it is a once only release. Would recommend to a lover of smoky brews. Good, not great.

Before I do my review I know everyone else had prob said it but after reading the back spiel Matt sounded like a top bloke so cheers to him and it pours a hazed golden hue with a fluffy three finger head and leggy boozy lacing all over the place looks the part,the smell is very unique you definately get the cherrywood along with coriander,barnhouse funk,almonds and peaches,the mouthfeel is full,moderately carbonated and a tad slick with tastes of lemon sherbet,smoked wood,sticky Redgum honey and finished with a mix of boozy heat and candy malts and overall not a bad drop that I had to try no matter what RIP Matt cheers.
