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 you’ll love this. Otherwise, the cedar may be a bit much. I’m 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.

750ml bottle at Paradiso Dupont. Pours a hazy burnt orange with some thin, white head. Nose is muted, some wood, some spice, lightly floral. Flavor is malty, sweet, grainy, light wood, a little unappealing dust, some fruit. Medium, dry finish. Not my style.

deyholla (8884) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 11, 2012
Sampled from the tap at the brewery. Pours a clear gold with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has notes of light tart fruit with backing notes of Belgian yeast, sweet grains and flora. Flavor has more sourness up front with a bit of acid and finishes with a bit of Belgian yeast and a note of grass/cedar. Odd.

beernbourbon (1426) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - OCT 10, 2012
Bottle shared by Cory, thanks! Pour is hazy gold with a small white head. Aroma is initially a bit fruity but then overwhelmed by cedar. It’s hard to notice much else. Flavor also lightly fuity but then the cedar takes over and it’s all i taste. I do not have a great track record with cedar beers. I like them, but they usually hurt me. Also smoke in the finish. Not much that identifies this is as a saison. I was still intrigued by this and happy to try it.

VsXsV (3116) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 8, 2012
Bottle at Stockholm Beer and Whiskey Festival 2012. Hazy golden liquid with medium white head. Aroma of white pepper, coriander, wood, cedar, wheat and bubble gum. Taste is dry/light sweet and light bitter with notes of wood, cedar and white pepper. Light to medium bodied with medium carbonation. My least favourite of the three versions I tried. Still great though.

yngwie (15759) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 1, 2012
On tap at Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2012. Looking more or less clear in the glass, golden in color and with a dense, finger-thick white head on top. There’s quite a lot of cedar in the aroma, with pine cones, grapefruit peel and a generic fruityness. Not much maltyness. The flavor is less influenced by the cedar, but it’s still there, along with grapefruit peel, fruityness, a little touch of pale malts and an appropriate level of bitterness. Full-bodied, creamy and soft on the palate, quite dry. Bitter, citrusy finish. A really nice one, tasteful and quenching even though it’s quite high on the ABV level. 120511
