jmgreenuk (4600) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 4, 2012
Bottle at a Ratebeer "sticky floor" tasting, Den Haag. Poured a cloudy orange with a round white head and broken lace. The aroma is of grapefruit. The flavour is bitter pepper and spicy. A tasty and flavourful beer. Not sure I could drink a whole bottle though.

erickok (3693) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - DEC 4, 2012
Hazy orange, off white lace. Bit too much spicy, but also a decent sweaty, fermented fruit and sweaty. Sweet and sharp notes, herbal bitterness. Itís okay. (At Deansoís tasting)

StefanSD (2150) - Lakeside, California, USA - NOV 28, 2012
750ml bottle. Bottle is a gusher. Pours a murky orange color with a large white head that has fair retention. The aroma is spicy with cardamon, coriander and some yeast. The flavor is rather weird with what I presume to be cedar taking the forefront, also present are spices, sour fruits (papaya, persimmon) and something medicinal. The palate is full and smooth with soft carbonation. Finishes medium in duration, dry and with bitter oranges lingering. Overall: This has a unique sourness, sort of a cross between RR Temptation and Orval, but not as good as either. Iím wondering if this might be infected.

Leighton (11315) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 26, 2012
Tap at Copenhagen Beer Celebration Day Two. Pours clear gold with a fine, white foam head. Massive spicy cedar nose. Big sweet flavor, lightly boozy with some honey and plenty of cedar wood. Medium to full bodied with fine carbonation. Warm finish with some alcohol sting, mild pine bitterness, and just loads of cedar wood character. Light dryness, medium sweetness. Lasting woody bitterness. If cedar is your favorite youíll love this. Otherwise, the cedar may be a bit much. Iím somewhere in between.

Draft to taster at Cigar City. Looks solid; a transparent orange with white lacing. Smells of cedar and spice. Taste is okay, but the cedar is overpowering. Average on the palate. A little too intense for me.
