4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Josh. He’ll join one of these days. Pours a hazy sort of blood orange color with a good, stiff finely bubbled off-white head. Lots of citrus, lowkey caramel, and fruit for aromas, along with something herby/woody. Medium body with frothy creamy carbonation. Flavor is mixed hop, mild caramel, and it moves to something woody. Never "ate" cedar before. Turns the ale astringent. Very. Very different from oak. Finishes toward floral, so the bitter isn’t what it started as. But with the wood, hop and astringency this is one tasty brew. Note: gave palate a 5 cause this is so new and pleasingly different to my mouth.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a murky orange color with a white head. Cedar aroma is definitely there, but nowhere near as over the top as some cedar beers. Citrus and floral hops with a light pine. Spicy wood, vanilla, and sweet caramel malts. The flavor is relatively the same as the aroma. Cedar is prominent, but not overpowering. Citrus peel, pine bitterness, wood, hints of vanilla, and fairly sweet caramel and toffee malts.

Cloudy dark orange with a lasting off-white head. Aroma is sweet, caramel, cedar wood and rather hoppy - citrus. Flavor is quite sweet and rather bitter. Dry and rather bitter finish. I’ve never had a beer aged on cedar before. It was great and very different from oak aged beers. 290611
