Bottle. Slightly murky caramel colored pour with no head. Nice aroma of spanish cedar with spices. Taste is cedar up front before a fairly generic and sweet malt backbone with some spices. Coating mouthfeel. The cedar is nice; otherwise did not care for the beer.

Deep golden color with a nice white head. Spicy coriander nose with some citrus notes. Grapefruit, bitter orange, coriander, and honey sweetness. I donít get cedar...

This was a terrible beer. Granted it was old but you can tell it was never good. Thereís a reason that this beer was never very popular. Poured into a snifter. The smell is bad and the taste is worse. I wouldnít recommend this to anyone. Thatís all I have to say about this. Donít waste your time.

750 ml bottle shared by Keir- thanks again, Keir! Pours a hazed gold with a medium white head. Thatís after gushing like crazy, of course. Thanks again, Keir, for splashing my back as you ran to the sink with it! This has a massive cedar aroma, which gives it that woody, dry, spicy nose- leaves, herbs, celery salt, maybe a dash of ginger, with pale malts and a bit of fruity funk. The flavor is a somewhat toned down version of the same, with some late florals and citrus. Some sugary sweetness, too. Medium-bodied, with medium carbonation and a dry, spicy mouthfeel. Pretty unique saison. I like the cedar stuff CCB does.

Bottle:   Thanks Cory for this one!   Dusty pale orange, minor haze, thin sudsy white head, spotty lacing.   Huge cedar nose, HUGE.   Minor citrusy spices.   Hard to pull those out because of the cedar.   Not as strong with the cedar on the tongue, more of the coriander, ginger, and citrus peel.   Very bright candied citrus peel and pith, in conjuction with the cedar.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Warming, but canít taste the 9% ABV.   Resiny finish, citrus oriented, with cedar lingering well beyond.   Interesting...

kappldav123 (4596) - Nordhausen, GERMANY - JUN 25, 2013
Tried this at CBC2012. Deep golden in the glass, small head. Extrem spicy aroma with notes of pepper. Starts extrem spicy-woody, quite unbalanced. Not my favourite.

ekoerper (587) - Iowa, USA - JUN 7, 2013
Bottle courtesy of Adam. Aroma: strong notes of cedar, quite like sticking oneís head in a humidor, grapefruit, some pepper, floral, faint malt notes. Appearance: slightly murky light amber pour, fluffy white head with average retention, leaves a bit of lacing. Taste: cedar again sort of takes over, some spice and citrus as well, distinct farmhouse yeast dough/pepper notes, slight sweetness in the finish. Palate: medium body, medium-high carbonation. Overall: interesting brew, complex.
