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

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.

Had on tap at Blind Tiger with Jredmond and Brendan. Insane smell from the wood that lends to the amazing aroma. The taste is also amplified by the Cedar wood. This blows the other two Dos Costas I had out of the water.

UPDATED: FEB 2, 2012 I never knew I was a lover, until this beer stole the things I hide. Cause I focused while we danced, because I offered it a ride.

On tap at Blind Tiger for CCB event. Pours golden with pretty big white head and leaves a thick but quickly-fading lacing on the glass (snifter). Aroma is sweet and funky yeast with some wood coming through already. Tastes of lemon/citrus, some vegetable, and a little hop. Definite wood in there as well, which comes through later than the other flavors. I wouldnít have guessed cedar without knowing the name of the beer, but this is (at least) the second cedar-aged beer Iíve tried and they seem to let a lot more of the wood come through compared to other types of wood barrel-aged beers. Stands out because itís a little funky, a little zesty, and moderately tart, almost to the point of sour but stopping just short. Something I could definitely drink an entire bottle of.

A Mes rate. Tap at Blind Tiger.
My god. Iíve tried pretty much all the cedar stuff from Cigar City and none of them are holding back on the wood character but this one is way more than the others. Itís like itís been double cedared or something. Thoroughly intense wood and lemon and epic spice. Drinks like 4%. Nothing like the 9 plus quoted. Spicy grapefruit wood finish. Quite a shocking experience but thoroughly enjoyable all the way through.

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.

From tap at Three Penny Taproom. Pours cloudy to hazy orange with a small white head. Aroma is mild ginger like spiced. Peppery and slight yeasty. Dry, herbal and light fruity hoppy. Bitter, spiced and peppery finish. Light phenolic.

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.
