Imperial Cherrywood-Smoked Saison Rather than regarding Burning Rosids as a somber memento, please think of it as a celebration of Matt, just as we do. When you drink this very special beer, please join us in raising your glass, both in Matt's memory and in tribute to everything he so passionately stood for: caring for others, passion and skill for his art, and laughter... lots of laughter. Among the long list of things he held dear were GoDesignInc.org, a charity committed to fulfilling the architectural needs of developing communities around the world; and TKF, a nonprofit working to stop youth violence by educating, mentoring and making positive impacts on high-risk communities. We are proudly contributing funds earned through the sale of this beer to these worthy organizations in Matt's honor. Enjoy, and please remember that life and those we hold dear are precious gifts to be cherished every day. Consider sharing this beer, conversation on life's passions and, again, lots of laughter, with good friends as we remember ours.

    This poured a very cloudy yellowish orange color with a white. Looks almost like a glass of fruit juice. If you didn’t know the style or description of the beer the aroma would take you off guard. Quite a bit of smoke like meat cooking over some burning wood on a campground. A hint of citrus in there. The flavor is very smokey with a bit of smoked bacon and ham showing up. I think this leaves grill marks on your tongue. There is also a also a yeasty belgian citrus aspect going on in the background. Overall a very interesting and big beer.

    I had this aged a year, so perhaps the flavor developed a bit. A complex strong Belgian ale. Aroma & flavor is smokey and light tart cherry, with some wheat and yeast in there. Also getting some sweet citrus in there. Not overly carbonated and bubbly like a lot of other saisons. Has a medium orange appearance. Alcohol bite well hidden for 10.5%. I’d like to find this again and try aging around 3 years.

    Comes out of the bottle clear amber with a.fairly thick ivory head. Aroma has notes of yeast fruit, citrus, and yes, smoky malt. Flavor ramps up the aroma notes a bit and tosses a hint of hops into the mix. Texture is smooth, just not too firm and barely fizzy. Still, a wonderful tribute to a brewer. Matt, I hope that when you went to heaven, a bomber of Westvleteren XII awaited you.

    Golden amber pour, translucent, lively and carbonated, little lacing. Floral and fruity aroma and flavor, nice yeast presence, some citrus but very little of advertised smokiness. Still a very flavorful brew.

    More Belgian ale or Belgian strong than Saison at 10%. Just a hint of tart. Comte sweet and yeasty than anything else. Aroma sweet Belgian with a little cherry. Smoke only comes out at room temp. Smoke more peeve land in the flavor. Less cherry. A pretty good beer, but pretty ho hum for Stone. Mighta been better at 6-7%.

    An orange colored beer with a big sudsy textured white-beige colored head rising above. There's some hang time on the head. A thin ringlet is left. Yeasty-sour nose. Add cloves to that sourness. Crisp, dry on the palate. It is typical Stone, In Your Face Beer.

    Pours a light orange amber with a one finger white head that lofts a bit. Aroma is more light a Belgian strong ale or quad rather than a saison. A little boozy on the nose. Big bubbles come from the bottom of the glass but is tame. Taste is palates worst nightmare. Taste is is a cloves and spice and is very bitter. A little boozy. Very dry as well. Finishes off pretty much non-existent. Well made. Whoever this Matt was he had interesting tastes.
