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.

Rune (7963) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 28, 2014
Shared from a big bottle. Hazy golden body, remaining white head. Brett-like aroma, rather dry. Grass, pineapple, and wood to the taste buds. Sweet and tart to the ending. Soft carbonated. Smooth on the swallow. Not a favourite of mine, but quite nice to drink anyway (Grand Tasting, Fredrik 3.s Hall, RBNG, Halden 15.02.2014).

Tall foamy white head. Hazy yellow-golden body. Nose is tangerines and sweet lemon, light funky with a touch of wood. Medium body. Fine fruit flavors. Light acidic, with orange peel, and pineapple. Fruity bitterness and soft wood tones. Elegant, refreshing and very easy drinkable despite the high abv. [Shared bottle at Grand Tasting, RBNG2014]

Sampled at the RBNG-14 Grand Tasting courtesy of Meilby. Muddy yellow body with a white film. Funky lemongrass and cedar tree on the nose. The bret comes through in the mouth on top of all the other aromas. Spicy wooden finish. Delightful!

One of my favorite Jester King beers. They really nailed the wood/hop ratio. The citrus and cedar flavors perfectly balanced out on this one.

Johnsense (778) - - JAN 25, 2014
UPDATED: FEB 13, 2014 A gusher when opening, but saved most of the bottle. Cloudy yellow pour, MASSIVE head, like 95% of the glass. Nose is mainly cedar, lighter citrus notes. Lots of cedar taste here - A bit soapy but that disappears while drinking. Citrus peels, some sourness, wheat. Lively carbonation.
