This is the most original beer Iíve ever tasted. I didnít read the background until I had tasted it, and had a difficult time placing the odd flavors. It has a pronounced smoked wood flavor with a unique sweet hop finish. I loved the totally unique imaginativeness of this beer. Cheers to Matt! zebra (2097) - Illinois, USA - APR 16, 2014
bomber from binnys Lincoln Park. sipping this all evening and liking it more and more. smoke is so hard to get right. with the bit of funk, this is perfect. AmericanHobo (70) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 13, 2014
As near a perfect beer as one can get. Initial Smokey aroma of roasted malt taste is sweet cherry finish no smoked peat taste lingers. Nice crisp finish. Hard to believe the ABV would think itís 1/2 of that judging by fullness of taste and lack of hotness ph03nix42 (20) - MCKINNEY, Texas, USA - JUL 21, 2014
The smoke is very subtle, gentle and not overpowering at all. Aroma is sour, fruity, smoky, flavorful.
Taste is bitter, sour, funk with a hint of smoke.

Amazing beer, amazingly classy move by a great brewery. Pours amber with a thick sourpy look, thin white head ring. Aroma is sweet, cherry and bark. Flavor is tart and sweet, alcohol and smoky malt.

Pours is a nice clear bronze with a white head. Aroma is soft and subtle with hints of cherry wood and herbs. Taste is a little boozy with a nice smoke flavor. After taste is a little herbal. SPDickerman (1239) - Texas, USA - MAR 31, 2014
Pours hazy orange with a small white head. Smells both smokey and funky. Taste is sweet, smokey, a little dry funk. Medium-bodied with a smooth texture and mild mouth-carbonation, Stone Mattís Burning Rosids Imperial Cherry Wood Smoked Saison finishes with a subtle lingering funky kiss. jahouse (14) - Reno, Nevada, USA - APR 24, 2014
Floral and tropical notes. Golden color. Sweet fruity taste, strawberry-like. the bitterness is very subtle, but still a nice touch. good upfront mouthfeel but it doesnt stick around. overall a very good saison. Surprisingly good. rajendra82 (1078) - Alpharetta, Georgia, USA - JAN 24, 2014
The color of the beer was golden amber, and the body looked extremely clear. The carbonation was medium, and the head was quite small, measuring at less than one finger. The aroma of the beer was full of farmhouse funk, with dandelions, juniper, hay, horse blanket, and cherry smells. I did not get much of a smoked malt smell. The taste was similar the smell, with the brett enhanced funk being detected right away, followed by some cherry, smoke, and finally tangerine, and a chipotle pepper finish. The alcohol was quite evident, as there was a warm sensation immediately upon starting the drinking. The mouthfeel was very light, and the beer left a smoky aftertaste. Not sure why the ratings of this beer are a little low here, as I thought it was quite nice. Not as smooth as the great Saisons, but pretty much true to style, except the alcoholic strength, which probably exceeded the typical one.

Fresh aromas of cinnamon, tart cherries, apple juice, malt syrup and pear. Very nice on the nose. Translucent copper appearance with nice lacing and alcohol legs. Huge mouthfeel on this. Itís very syrupy and slick bringing flavors of tart cherries, cinnamon, herbs, spicy resinous fruit juice, very bitter hops, super hop forward but extremely malty as well. More subtle notes of molasses, biscuit, sugared caramel, toffee and sweet apple juice. Finish is very boozy and oily slick syrup malts linger on the palate. Overall, this seems to me so disjointed yet so perfectly balanced at the same time. There is so much going on in this beer, itís actually really impressive. The cherry is definitely there but it blends well with the rest of the beer. Good stuff stone. R.I.P Matt. A+ rating.
