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

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. 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.

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; Pour is murky gold with a very modest white head that disappears pretty quick. The nose is heavy on the coriander and the cedar, really. Some citrus, I suppose, as well. The flavor profile is bitter initial, semi sweet, more cedar, earth, oranges, cereal grains, and pepper... Interesting brew - not bad.

One more from Cigar City :-). The scent was an amazing mix of wood, yeast, citrus and herbs. The taste reminded me of a saison, but had more earthy and honey flavors in the mix. Finished dry and fruity with a hint of vanilla and warm alcohol. Truly unique, but as good as I’d expect from Cigar City.

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.

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!

pentaz (1240) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 13, 2013
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.

patrickfannon (1240) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 6, 2012
Sample from Vinnie. Pours clear orange with minimal white head. Aroma of cedar, orange, lemon, corriander, and some odd spices. Tastes exactly like orange slice candy, with a lot of spice in the back. Soft, clean palate with some more of the corriander spicy sweetness in the finish. Good beer.

jjuf1853 (1238) - Land O Lakes, Florida, USA - MAR 17, 2012
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.
