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.

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.

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.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

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!

3.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.
