THX! To Sebletitje. 75 cl. bottle sampled. Aged on Spanish cedar wood (apparently they stuff they use for cigar boxes to age the stuff – fitting) saison with coriander and ginger. Pours bright orange with a touch amber, oakish, white head. Nose is very unique, I suppose that this is Spanish cedar, its huge, sweet fruity wood, soft, juicy wood, fruity, berries, light sour tang pure wood, ginger, tad sharp,… wow this is new. Picking up lots of ginger in the taste, I assume what is the cedar, stringy, juicy wood, very sharp, hard to describe, sour fruits & more-so sour berries, wild berries, orange peel, fresh grapefruit juice, hint of pear, sour pine, peel,… This is a bit much to take in, I am not even too certain whether I like it or not, bit hard to tell, it is more interesting. Clean, sharp body. Interesting stuff.

Hazy gold with a fluffy white head. Not the gusher that the previous one was. Funky yeast and lemon aroma. The flavor starts with a tart bite then mellows out as the sweet fruitiness comes on. The finish is dry and fruity.

Pouring at the Saturday afternoon session of EBF. Pours a hazed gold with a medium sized white head. Big cedar right away on the nose. A touch sweet, smooth and spicy. Light alcohol peeks through, a touch of spicy wood. Caramel, long warm cedar on the finish.

Sampled from 750ml bottle. Poured a golden orange color with a fluffy white head. Aroma is orange-lemon citrus, with notes of woody lemon. What is this sorcery? This was pretty darn tasty. Sour notes, cedar, with tropical fruits, and white pepper.

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, it’s slightly offset by the orange peel, but the flavor is predominately peppery cedar. It’s very good and another gem from two of my favorite breweries.
