COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dos Costas Oeste is the result of a collaborative brewing effort between Cigar City Brewing of Florida’s Gulf (West) Coast and The Bruery of Placentia, CA. Like the breweries involved with its creation this ale cheerfully meanders off the beaten path. Join us in celebrating this West Coast to West Coast collaboration. Aged on Spanish Cedar Spirals

Complex taste and definitely runs off the beaten path. Pours a hazy orange yellow, nose is spicey and peppery. Taste is complex and disturbing, peppery and rather bitter. Finish is rather astringent and nauseating, two of my favorite microbreweries and the first time I could not finish a glass of beer. Quaff Score 2 / 10 ..... maybe just not my style !

Pour is clear orange with off white ring. Nose is heavy citrus and grapefruit with a faint note of cedar and barely any Saison. Taste has more farmhouse to it with a strong grapefruit and citrus backbone. Fairly sour dry finish on a fuller syrupy body.

Bottle. Pours a clear golden yellow color with minimal head. Tons of cedar on the nose. Flavor is simply awesome. Boozy without being overwhelming considering the 9%. Excellent collaboration.

RoyceH (1196) - Hesperange, LUXEMBOURG - MAY 22, 2012
Tap at Rattle & Hum. Opaque blonde, bit of a white head. Nose is fresh spicy greenery, touch of cinnamon, grass, thistle, nettle, shedload of young heather. Lemony gueuzeness. Mouth is lemon, massive lemon, wood, cedar obviously, bit of gueuzeness. Bit like if someone stuck an antique sideboard in a pint of gueuze. Weird, do I like this beer? I don't know, i really don't know. ---via BeerBuddy

Pours orange with a dissapearing white head and aroma of spices. Taste is unique, lots of spices, fruits, and hops that create a complex flavor with a tart, astringent finish. Unique and different brew.

OmegaX (1157) - Florida, USA - FEB 19, 2012
Bottle share with Chipalsa. Pour is a clear amber color with small bubbles and a white head. The aroma is pretty interesting. Bits of black pepper, lots of cedar, some lemon and orange peel, a bit of yeast, and a touch of alcohol make this one up. Taste wise, this is heavy on the cedar. Up front there is a good amount of citrus (lemon peel and orange zest), slight caramel, a bit of yeast and even some yeast in the front. Smooth and light with a dry finish. This type of beer isn’t my usual style but was enjoyable and drinkable at the 9% abv. Cheers!

Gedronken met joes, benzai en dutchdrebus, goudkleurig, sigaren kistje geur, houtsnipper, zo rook onze oude kast. Hij smaakt ook naar hout en een beetje verbrand. Veel koolzuur.

Bottle. Pours unclear amber with a minimal white head. Aroma is dominated by cedar wood, grapefruit, lemon, orange, perfume and pepper. Taste is medium sweet, light+ bitter, and light sour. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is lively. Finish is dry and woody astringent.

jbeatty (948) - New York, USA - FEB 23, 2012
Bottle, 02/21/2012. Pours hazy apricot, soapy white head that fades within a couple minutes, residual surface foam. Aroma carries a big kick of cedar and white pepper, undertones of ginger, a floral character with lightest sweetness on the finish. Taste is dominated by peppery cedar, medicinal herbs and orange ginger in the background, bitter wood aftertaste. Palate is medium, adequate carbonation, with a dry finish. I like a nice cedar character from time to time, but this is perhaps overkill in that department, to the detriment of other flavors and complexities. This went well with food, but by itself maybe hard to stomach more than a glass.
