I love the Ceder woodwork and Cigar city are the ceder masters. The cocktail with one of the best breweries using spices and farm kind of yeasts... Here it is, the perfect Beer.

Tasted on tap @Pivni, on 01/11/2012.
Pours of amazing peachy/orange colour, with a proper, snowy head.
Aroma beats you from the first smell! Fruits, tons of fruits, and not usual mango/citrus/etc, but rather the most exotic tropical fruits one can imagine.
Taste is just... wow. Soo sexy, I gonna buy a keg of this.
Aftertaste is amazingly tart anf long-lasting.
Not much to add, just an ideal beer, to my personal taste.

750ml bottle. Pours a burnt orange with a fizzy white head that sticks around. Nose is smoke, wood, funk and citrus. Taste is all over the place with citrus, heavy vanilla wood, cedar wood, spicy hops and a creamy finish. Truly a masterful beer. Wow.

Courtesy of Sebletitje. Thx! 75 cl. bottle sampled @ RBBSG II. Very murky orange with little head. Nose is very sweet fresh wood with big lemon, very sweet spices and some cinnamon. Taste is bitter lemon, bit wood, quite bitter spices, sugar, light herbs, sticky sweet caramel, thick malts. Lightly fizzy body. Less extreme and fascinatingly bizarre than the Spanish cedar version but works better as a beer for me. Quite sweet, interesting a nice. Another great beer from this wonderful brewery.

A - Pours a hazy golden-orange with a finger of frothy white head. The head fades down at a normal pace leaving behind some nice lacing.
S - Aroma is a mix of sweet grainy and bready malts with lemon, orange peel, ginger, coriander, Belgian yeast, honey, and some other spices.
T - Starts off with a mix of grainy and bready malts with some tart lemon, orange peel, and coriander. Through the middle, some more Belgian yeast flavors and some ginger and other spices come through with some honey and light floral hops. The finish is a mix of sweet bread malts with tart lemon, orange peel, Belgian yeast, coriander, ginger and some other spices.
M - Medium-plus bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with a sweet, dry, and eatery finish.
D - Very drinkable. Feels smooth with great overall balance and nice flavors from the lemonwood.

Bottle poured into glass. Has a terrific aroma of lemon mixed with a Christmas tree woody feel. It’s a tie between the lemon and wood, both are equally prevalent in this beer and it just works out great.

Bottle at Stockholm Beer and Whiskey Festival 2012. Hazy light amber liquid with medium white head. Aroma of lemons, grapefruit, tropical fruit, wood, bubble gum, some white pepper. Taste is dry and light to medium bitter with notes of grapefruit and bubble gum. Light bodied with low carbonation. Awesome.

Tasting three beers of the Dos Costas Oriente series, Cedar, Gapefruit and Lemon, courtesy of Sammy. Another gusher, but we were more prepared. More nuanced aromas. Flavours of citrus, lemon and spices. Some funk, with lemony aftertaste.
