thewolf (12023) - Kolding, DENMARK - MAY 23, 2012
Tap @ CBC, 2012.
Pours clear yellow with a small, creamy, white film head. Aroma has lots of pepper - really accentuated by the wood. Doughy malts, grassy. Very fresh. Medium carbonation, lovely dry and light creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is initially malty, doughy, then turns to wonderfully sharp white pepper. Pine bitterness and crisp finish. Lovely, and amazing what that cedar does to enhance flavours and aromas.

Sammy (11069) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 8, 2013
Lateral tasting with bottles from Lueken Liquors. Funky aroma, the funk stays in the taste and is moderated by some grapefruit and lemon and the wood. Very good very spicy flavour, but you have to tolerate the barnyard. Good drinkability.Full mouthfeel, carbonation significant.

Rune (11050) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUN 1, 2012
Bottle sample, thanks to Henrik Soegaard for sharing. Unclear golden body. Spotty lacing. Dry lemony hops to the nose, slightly spiced. Bittersweet taste profile of tangy fruits, mild pepper and yeasty fruitiness towards the ending. Fresh and dry bitter endnotes. Good, but far from being a favourite (Copenhagen, 12.05.2012).

hopscotch (10563) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - SEP 22, 2011
Bottle… Mostly clear, straw-colored ale with a small, fizzy, white head. The aromatic highlights are spicy cedar, citrus peel an both spice-rack lemon pepper and spice-rack coriander. Medium to full-bodied with a skim-milk mouthfeel and tingly carbonation. The flavor is nearly tart, moderately bitter and lemon peppery. Finishes tangy, bitter and a touch citrusy.
