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

daknole (9042) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAY 13, 2012
Gold pour, big white head. Yeasty aroma, lots of cedar, some sweet honeyed notes, spice. Flavor is cedar heavy, some spice, yeast, a bit sweet with some tart notes in the back. Interesting to say the least.

hopscotch (9042) - 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.

Bottle @ Scott’s Summer Saison tasting. Thanks so much Scott! Hazy golden appearance with a cream colored head. Very spicy cedar, tobacco, woody aroma with lighter citrusy notes. Spicy cedar, woody, lemon citrusy, a bit smoky, mainly cedar flavor.

Sammy (8526) - 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.

Bottle shared by jcwattsrugger. Pours cloudy gold with white head. Nose/taste of cedar/cigar box, sweet orange peel, ginger, coriander and grapefruit. Taste is heavy cedar - a saison in a cigar box. Medium body.

Benzai (8101) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - AUG 30, 2012
75cl bottle shared by Joes. Clear yellow - light orange color, small white head. Smell malts, sweetness, apple, fruits, some herbs and -I guess- cedar wood. Taste malts, sweet, again probably the cedar wood, but a lot of herbs or spices again. A bit fizzy carbonation, medium body.

Rune (7951) - 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).

DocLock (7824) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 25, 2012
Bomber from Railroad Street Tavern. Pours turbid vivid gold with 3-finger well-retained creamy head. Nose is that awesome fresh ground black pepper right out of the mill, piney hops, cedar, mango, and florals. Nose reminds me a great deal of Humidor Cedar Jai Alai. Tastes very fruity, somewhat sweet, with orange marmalade and mango flavors, intense cedary black pepper, hops, and some finishing florals. Flavor is complex, with a lot of fruit, tons of cedary peppery notes, and a juicy deliciousness that makes you want to drink it with a funnel.

Bottle shared @ Timo’s/tkrjukoff’s CCB Day tasting on July 7, 2012.
Hazy golden color, white head. Wood, perfume, alcohol, fruity scent. Wood, bitter, dry, very bitter, loads of white skin of inside of grapefruit peel (pith) taste, damn nasty! Medium mouthfeel, wierd bitterness. No thank you!
The taste for me was just plain utterly horrible! I would imagine this is how it taste if you peel a few grapefruits, then pick the white stuff (pith) away from it, soaks it in alcohol and then drinks it, worst stuff i’ve drank in years, and the only beer at this tasting I had to drain pour from my glass. Vile.
Scent was OK though, as was looks and mouthfeel, just that damned taste that ruined the whole thing.
6/3/1/3/2=1.5

Rerate
Bottled at Haket, Göteborg, on August 16, 2014. During "big bottle share Saturday".
Hazy golden color, small yellow head. Very bizarre scent. Alcohol, sweet, wood, strange, solvent taste. Medium mouthfeel, low bitterness.
Had to quickly fins another beer to drink right after only a few sips of this, not at all for me this time around either.
4/3/2/3/2=1.4
