3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Bottle) Pours hazy orange with an off-white head. The aroma holds spicy cedar wood up front with hints of bread, citrus and spices. The flavour is light sweet, medium bitter and light acidic with notes of cedar, citrus, spices, bread and light phenols. The mouthfeel is a bit round and a bit numbing from the wood with a light carbonation. Woodsy finish. Medium bodied.

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.

Wow this is well another huge cedar bomb. Reminds me of sniffing bug spray with extra deet. Super huge cedar notes dominate all other nuanced flavor here.

The aroma is very complex and spicy with cedar, citrus fruit, ginger, and malt. The appearance is hazy gold with a small head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is average. Overall another interesting beer that I like but not one I want regularly.

Bottle shared by MrPickles...thanks Andy! - Pours clear yellow with a thin with head. The cedar is...wow...spicy and pungent. It overshadows everything else, but there’s a little fruitiness peeking through there. Taste is spicy cedar, with more of the fruitiness peeking through, but man--it’s just cedary as hell. Touch of fruit and a bit of yeast, but the spice and wood is king here. Pretty aggressive carbonation. Too much wood in this one.

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).

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.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Hazy off orange pour whispy white head. Peppery earthy bready lemon zest and alcohol on the aroma I’m thinking saison. Nice palate lightly creamy well coated. Odd flavor clearly Belgian yeasts then some dry lemon zests a hint of soapyness some hops that don’t balance the beer well. Not very good.
