I've had a bomber of this sitting in my cellar for quite some time now. Poured into my snifter glass, this beer pours a clear, medium copper color with a nice white head that's about an inch thick when first poured that settles pretty quickly to a big cluster swirl film layer of foam on the beer's surface along with a thick ring lining the inside of the glass and spotty lacing. Aromas of somewhat toasted and smoked, bready malts with some caramel and a hint of molasses followed by some fruit notes, certainly including the cherry. Has a slightly toasted, smoked, bready malt flavor upfront with hints of caramel and molasses that gives way to the cherry wood along with other fruits such as apple, dates, figs and just maybe even a hint of banana. Also a nice touch of yeasty funk notes that's rounded out with some spice. Not really any discernible hop presence at this point. I wonder if there was any a few years ago when this beer was first released. A good balance of flavors and an interesting take on this style here. This Matt Courtright guy that this beer is brewed in memory of and who came up with this recipe certainly created a unique beer here. Has a fairly crisp, yet smooth, medium to full bodied mouthfeel with moderate carbonation. Quite an enjoyable and interesting beer.

Sampled at THT June tasting. Amber with a thin white head. Smoked bacon, soft saison notes, caranel and honey. Bitter and syrupy, with a nice sweetness underneath.

Clear orange colored ale with a medium sized white colored head.

Scents smoke and peach with some tangerine mixed in. Has a sweet and sour scent to it. Unexpected scent of cloves. Coriander is about medium in intensity for the style. Distinctly smells of candied fruit.

Starts out smoky and savory with a sweet and sour undertone. Alcohol is warming to the chest but not tasted. Smoke flavor is prominent. Sweeter than average for the style. But after you drink it for a bit mostly it is smoke flavored.

Mouthfeel is good.

Overall a great Rauchbier but a weird Saison.

From XXXII. In Temu glasd. Shared with Carlos at delivery of Fishbones. Odd brew but much better and drinkable than expected. The smoky part is very hidden, as well as its high ABV. Would repeat if cheaper.

Beautiful head after aged for 3 years bright beautiful pour. Taste almost reminds me of orange and liquid smoke the smoke from it is so strong it almost seems artificial towards the end. Not a bad beer but I would not buy again.

On tap at front door. Tart and pungent, in your face bitterness and acidity. But it’s from Stone, so it has to be drinkable. Lots of citrus, but not puckering. I wouldn’t order too many of these, but the 4 oz sampler was a beaut.

Thoroughly enjoyed this fine ale in a snifter from the 22 oz bottle. This saison pours a cloudy yet luminous orange with a nice head of white foam that settles to a thick ring, nice pool, and subtle lacing. Nose of candy sugars, subtle smoke, tropical fruit notes, and strong booze. Flavors exceed the nose with sweet candy malts and subtle funky yeast on the front and middle that vie for dominance over tropical fruit notes of orange zest and lightly smoked notes that fade into the background with a smoky herbal hops bitterness that is perfect for this fine sipper. Very nice mouth feel with medium to low carbonation and a warming, moderately hoppy, sweet finish touched with smoke. An excellent example of taking a style to it's limits and making something more of it. Very nice. A new favorite from Stone which I hope they brew again.

Cheers
