Bottle with James, Andrew, and Maggi. Pours a hazy amber with little to no head. Amazing nose. Cigar smells with fresh lemons and other citrus fruits. Flavor is peppery with deep wood flavors mixing with some light citrus. Amazing.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
clear mellow orange, and beautiful, thick creamy white head. Belgiany grain aroma, complimented by some orange notes, and hints of cedar. Nice bubbly carbonation. The cedar gives the beer quote an interesting flavor, itís slightly offset by the orange peel, but the flavor is predominately peppery cedar. Itís very good and another gem from two of my favorite breweries.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle courtesy of Adam. Aroma: strong notes of cedar, quite like sticking oneís head in a humidor, grapefruit, some pepper, floral, faint malt notes.
Appearance: slightly murky light amber pour, fluffy white head with average retention, leaves a bit of lacing. Taste: cedar again sort of takes over, some spice and citrus as well, distinct farmhouse yeast dough/pepper notes, slight sweetness in the finish. Palate: medium body, medium-high carbonation. Overall: interesting brew, complex.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle, pours golden orange with decent soapy white head. Whoa...nose is like fresh lemon and orange inside a cigar box. Tons of spicy cedar here, citrus taking a backseat. Taste is more balanced, you can certainly tell now itís a saison. Still lots of wood character, but the spiciness complements the style. I get why people arenít too keen on this one, but I dig it.

Bottle received from burg326, thanks Adam. This one was ALL cedar. In the past I like how it worked with other brews, but this one just didnít work for me.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured a hazy orange color with seven head, good carbonation. Aroma of cedar, predominantly, and citrus, spices. Taste is sweet, but with a bite. Again, the cedar is dominant. Not as good as the others in this series.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: FEB 18, 2012 Pours a golden amber with a small head. Aroma is smoke and freshly cut cedar. The coriander taste is prevalent along with the cedar up front and there is a black pepper-like bite in the finish that alludes to carbonation. Different and interesting.
