Pours clear light amber in color with a decent off white head. The aroma is light, a bit of an old cedar closet with the saison yeast sweet base. The flavor starts off soft with farmhouse yeast and maltiness, then the cedar hits in a big way overtaking the palate to the end.

Draft courtesy of the CCB crew, thanks! My father used to smoke cigars, and the aroma of this beer was like sticking my face in one of his humidors, without the tobacco I guess. Taste was dominated by that aroma. Overall an interesting experience.
