Didn't know this was a tribute before I bought it, just sounded intriguing. I don't always have the patience to read Stone bottles at the shop :-p. 6.49 for the bomber.

Modest head atop the clear copper body that looks like apple juice. Smells Belgian yeasty and fruity before the smoked malt chimes in. The flavor is dry over the tongue;and finishes with some alcohol burn. Some apple and pear notes, as well as some savory herbs and spice. 10.5 seems a bit much for this one. The smoke isn't overpowering, and as it warms, it feels more balanced. Still, I think I'd like the needle tuned to the saison side just a touch more.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Type: 22-oz. bottle
Glass: Firestone restaurant pint glass
From: Trader Joe’s in La Mesa (San Diego), Calif.
Price: $6.99
Purchased: Jan. 29, 2014
Consumed: Feb. 1, 2014
Misc.: N/A

Poured a honey orange clear color with 2-to-3 fingers of frothy off-white head. Minimal lacing on the sides of the glass. Average retention.

Smelled cloves, Circus Peanuts, banana, honey, sour fruit, sour cherries, Belgian spices and floral hops.

Tasted pretty close to the smell. Got cloves, banana, honey, sour cherries, sour grapes, kiwi, Belgian spices, floral notes with an outputting buttery boozy awkward aftertaste.

Light body. Thin texture. Average-to-lively carbonation. Abrupt finish with alcohol strong on the tongue after.

A decent beer, but not great. I’ll probably not have it again after today.
