750 ml bottle to taster (shared by brew3crew). Looks solid; a murky apricot with a bit if sediment, lively carbonation, and off-white head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells solid; semi-sweet, woody, and peppery. Tastes like it smells with a nice, fruity mouthfeel with a touch of tartness. Enjoyable.

DoublEE (784) - South Euclid, Ohio, USA - AUG 28, 2013
Medium sweet malt flavors kick things off and are joined quickly by grassy and slightly medicinal flavors. Midway through the sip the flavors dry out a bit and somewhat tart green apple and pear flavors join into things. Near the end of the sip the flavors dry out even further with hints of woody and herbal notes that carry through to a mildly bitter ending.

3/02/2011: Cigar City Gruit Humidor Series Ale... Aroma: Honey, Late Harvest Riesling, virgin strawberry daiquiri mixed with a virgin margarita. Appearance: Cloudy orange color; minimal off-white crown. Flavor: Dry with cedar notes; fruity mouthful; Chianti-Riesling blend; sour twang (like fresh blackberry) in the finish; the aftertaste includes tobacco/smoke. Palate: Medium to medium-full body; calm mouthfeel; smooth. Overall: This is a really nice beer, but I don’t have a lot to say about it since it’s difficult to describe in meaningful detail; the cedar aging definitely shines through!

alexsdad06 (5362) - Ohio, USA - JAN 12, 2013
750 ml bottle. Pours a clear to slightly hazy orange amber color with a small white head. The aroma has cedar, some fruity notes, green peppercorn, herbal notes with some sweetness. The flavor is drier and a bit less fruity than the nose indicates, cedar, herbal, tart berries, earthy with some general malts as a base. Interesting, but not something I would do very often.

Pours a copper gold with no head. Aroma of cedar and that's all I'm getting. Taste is tart, citrusy and cedar. Very interesting, not bad ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Batch 2010-02. Pours a hazy golden orange from the bottle with thin, lacy white head. Aroma of sour fruit and yeast. Taste is like an aged belgian sour, tart and ballsy. Great beer.

ekoerper (588) - Iowa, USA - APR 30, 2012
Aroma: sour apple, spices, big cedar note, earthy. Hazy amber, white head with decent lacing. Flavor: more sour apple, lemon, fairly tart, spices, plenty of cedar but not overwhelming, some toasty malt. Medium body, medium-high carbonation. Interesting brew, the cedar masks the other flavors and aromas somewhat, but this is pretty tasty.
