COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

Bottle at Mikkeller Bar Viktoriagade, july 24th 2014. Hazy golden body with a big lively white head. Aroma of cedar, grapefruit, funk, taste is funky with heavy cedar and notes of grapefruit, red apples, orange zest and wood. Delicious! Dry fruity finish, lasting fruit aftertaste. A nice one!

Pours dark deep gold with off white head. The aroma offers up apricot, peach, pear and apple mixing with salty malts, a mild pepper note and hints of yeastiness. Hmm. The taste is full of pears, apples and apricots blended with notes of grainy malts and funky yeast. It gets both salty and a bit peppery to midway with growing yet mild levels of spicy cedar. Interesting.

markwise (4467) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - DEC 21, 2011
I could drink this beer by the gallon. Pours a hazy yellow with a small white head. Nose is cedar, lemon, sweet malt, yeast, spices, and wood. Flavor is similar- cedar up front followed by lemon, citrus, and sweet malt. Medium in body, and a delightful biere de garde overall. Complex in its simplicity.

rbrazell (1655) - Charleston, South Carolina, USA - FEB 9, 2012
Pours a unclear dark gold with a bubbly white head that dissipates quick. Bursting aroma of fresh pine, cedar, spice and yeast. Sweet entry that subdues into light vanilla and wood then quickly into strong cedar wood spice, lemon rind and yeast. Finishes very spicy and dry with a quick note of alcohol.

From the 750 ml bottle. Light amber pour with a thin white head. Grapefruit hops barely cuts through the huge cedar wood nose. Clean malt with a big grapefruit hop bite and cedar woodiness. The best of the series.

there is an exuberant amount of herbs and spices that I cant ever begin to describe.still the flavor is amazing with a very strong maltiness. while there is a lot of spice the hops are not very strong, still its quite a feat.

Bottle sample at CBC. Taste of riesling wine, wood, citrus, some stable. Nice dryness.

Ultra sweet and overwhelming cigar and grapefruit. So insane and intense.

Backlogged rating (Joe Peesie Beer Porn gathering), thanks Zach: Golden hued with a good lasting head. The aroma has notes of oak, lemongrass, mango, white pepper, ginger, resiny hops and bready malts. The taste has a lovely balance of spice, booze, fruit and bitterness. I like the touch of cedar tannins and overall spicy notes. The mouth feel is lively yet smooth, a tad sticky. Overall a successful brew that i would gladly try again.
