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.

Another excellent and unique beer from Jester King. Tropical and slightly funky aroma, citra is definitely evident through and through. Dry on the palate. Bought this in Houston when visiting Ike in 2013.

Bulk_Carrier (2281) - Juneau, Alaska, USA - JUL 23, 2014
Batch #4 - July 22, 2013. This was poured into a tulip. The appearance was a nice hazy golden orange to yellow color with a slight ability to see small carbonation bubbles rising at the edges . There was a two finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute leaving some light spider web lacing. The smell was absolutely amazing through a piney/resinous aroma with a nice entanglement of lemon zest, lemongrass, sweetened freshly cut grass and cracked pepper. The taste takes those flavors and jumbled them up to practically perfection. The aftertaste, probably one of the absolute best aftertaste I’ve ever encountered in any beer. Okay, it’s a long intriguing sticky sweet lemon with a slight dry touch from the lemongrass that lets in a tad of refreshing tropical fruitiness. The finish is sticky and sweet that brings in a light grapefruit with a light sweet grassiness to it. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. Would I have this with food? I might if I could get it again. At the beginning of the beer, the carbonation felt a bit sharper but as the beer warms, it really smooths out. Overall, hot damn! Way to knock one outa the park, Jester King! When are you going to sending your beers to Alaska? Don’t make me have to trade for this again.

Marheb (2309) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 6, 2013
Comme prévu, un lever de soleil hyper effervescent avec un bouquet tropical alléchant. En bouche c’est juteux avec une belle tranche de sauvagerie et de dociles tanins facilement attribuable au cèdre. Buvabilité évidente et longueur en bouche spectaculaire.

Atheist_Peace (977) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - OCT 8, 2013
This was one of the favourite beers I’ve had in a long time. Such a great nose full of fresh fruit from all angles with a lively fresh cedar tone over everything alongside great spice notes. Slightly less impressive on the palate but only by a hair. Such good shit.

L_inconnu (64) - SWITZERLAND - APR 20, 2014
Une des bières les plus intéressante, travaillée et marquante qu’il m’ai été donné de goûter. À la première gorgée, on se sent transporté. J’ai fermé les yeux et j’ai cru me trouver en pleine pinède Toscane. L’une des personne avec qui je l’ai dégusté m’a même assuré en avoir rêvé après coup ^^

maneliquor (3287) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAY 22, 2013
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours straw yellow with a big fluffy white head. Awesome lacing left around. Nose is like freshly cut open grapefruit. Just that, nothing more, nothing less. Sweet, juicy and sour grapefruit. Taste showcases grapefruit to it’s full potential. Grapefruit is the main man but there are some other notes which float through - passionfruit, spice, apple, oak. Soft carbonation and a lengthy sour sweetness which lasts and lasts. Amazing beer

lesifflebiere (1356) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 12, 2013
Bouteille partagée avec Bière-Luc (merci !) Couleur ambre tirant sur le orangé, avec une épaisse mousse blanche qui lui fait un cap tenace. Au nez, bretts et cèdre, avec de subtiles notes fruitées (agrumes acidulés). En bouche, superbe complexité qui allie le cuir des bretts au fruité des houblons et des malts (pommes, kiwi, ananas, etc.). Belle profondeur donc, soutenue par un équilibre qui frôle la perfection, et une douce amertume qui ferme la marche de brillante façon. Une bière presque irréprochable, alliant originalité et saveurs envoûtantes.

swanmann (629) - Norman, Oklahoma, USA - OCT 21, 2013
Hazy golden amber color out of the bottle with pale tan, yellow foam, dense and sticky, which settles gradually and leaves moderate lacing. Aromas of caramel, funk, booze, citrus, honey, cedar. Full, full flavored: hoppy, bitter, sweet, warm, spicy... bright twang and bitterness open on top of sweet, nearly tart apricot, mango, closing with woody spice, bite, and warmth. It’s like a nice IIPA with the wody, spice notes, similar to some rye-like qualities. Quite the brew!!

BEENJAMIN (290) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 29, 2013
Warm cedar and pine, celery and leeks, pickling spices, citrus notes and funk, this is one fun ride. The brett shows up nicely as the beer warms up rounds out to more peppery pineapple and citrus. The cedar is pretty intense but does not overwhelm. El Cedro drank pretty smooth for 8% and was all around one of the most complex beers of the night.
