COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
El Cedro, an 8.0% ABV farmhouse ale dry-hopped with Citra hops, aged with Spanish Cedar spirals and bottle conditioned with Brettanomyces yeast. It combines tropical, fruity hop flavor and aroma with funky, barnyard yeast character and the unique flavor and aromatics of Spanish Cedar. El Cedro is brewed with Texas Hill Country well water, 100% organic malt (Two Row, Carapils and Wheat), Millenium, Cascade, Columbus and Citra hops, farmhouse and Brettanomyces yeasts, and Spanish Cedar spirals. After primary fermentation with farmhouse yeast, El Cedro is dry hopped with Citra hops and aged for weeks with Spanish Cedar spirals. It is unfiltered, unpasteurized and naturally carbonated through re-fermentation with Brettanomyces yeast.

75cl bottle at Gainsbar in Kortrijk - Belgium. Pours a amber orange color with white head. Light aroma of pepper and cedarwoord, very carbonated but still balanced, slightly bitter bretty finish. Lovely.

sebletitje (6582) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JUL 7, 2014
Bouteille 75cl @ RBBSG III, courtesy of omgrich. Troisième bière utilisant du cèdre pour cette session, avec encore une fois un rappel prononcé à CCB. Dorée, léger trouble, col fin blanc. Arôme est dominé par le cèdre. Fruité houblonné arrivant en rétro-nasal et apportant une très belle palette de fruité, léger noble, malt cara pâle avec un brett qui ne profite pas de la force du cèdre. Palais met ici aussi le cèdre bien en avant. Houblonné fruité notamment sur un niveau citronné frais et léger tropical. Léger épicé - boisé venant du cèdre mais aussi du Simcoe plus un léger pin qui s’estompent un peu avec la présence du cèdre. Pour 8%, reste très, voire trop, facile à boire. Au final, bière agréable qui reste plus appréciable que la version de To Ol et un peu moins balancée que celle de CCB.

77ships (3573) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JUL 6, 2014
750 ml. bottle sampled @ RBBSG III. Thanks to omgrich! Hazy citrus with huge fluffy white head. Fizzy citrus nose, touch tart with huge lemongrass / Fanta / Ceder profile. Taste is huge punch of brett / lemongrass / Fanta / lots of Ceder / air refresher / fizzy / citrus / minor funk. Very love or hate. Bit too softdrink-like almost for me but very unique & refreshing for me.

Boutip (4642) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 5, 2014
Bottle: Poured a light dirty beige color ale with a giant white foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of fruity hops with light mango notes with dry Brett notes and some light spicy notes form the cedar. Taste is also dominated by light mango fruity notes with some spicy notes from the cedar and the dry aftertaste and funky notes from the yeast. Body is full with limited filtration and good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Incredible amount of complexity can be found in this beer but it also retains an extremely high level of drinkability.

This is one of my favorites from Jester King and a very well done beer. Pours a hazy straw yellow color with white head. Citrus, brett, cedar, funk, light fruit, and some earth tones on the nose; follows onto the palate. Very complex, and medium bodied. Finishes dry with a bit of funk.
