Sampled from 750ml bottle. Poured a golden orange color with a fluffy white head. Aroma is orange-lemon citrus, with notes of woody lemon. What is this sorcery? This was pretty darn tasty. Sour notes, cedar, with tropical fruits, and white pepper. Sledutah (7529) - Utah, USA - MAY 1, 2012
750ml bottle shared by Dallas, thanks again douglas88 (9194) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 30, 2012
Appearance: Cloudy golden with a medium white head and some lacing
Taste: Cedar, spicey, lemon and herbal
Decent, the cedar was really strong, maybe some aging would mellow it out.
Bottle thanks to Dallas who has somehow hooked up 3 of the 4 versions of this!! Pours a clear yellow color with a medium white head. A big spicy dry cedar nose. The flavor is dominated almost totally by cedar, spicy, dry, a bit harsh somehow, perfume, the cedar at times tastes bitter and harsh. Not my thing, it was good but didn’t work as well as it could have, and I love the CC cedar beers. Gription79 (2891) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - APR 28, 2012
750 ml bottle shared with the Utah crew. I get a lot of citrus in the nose. The flavor was terrible, super bitter, spicy, out of balance, sweet, and fruity. DeputyAndy (636) - Ambler, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 19, 2012
Bottle with James, Andrew, and Maggi. Pours a hazy amber with little to no head. Amazing nose. Cigar smells with fresh lemons and other citrus fruits. Flavor is peppery with deep wood flavors mixing with some light citrus. Amazing.

750ml bottle acquired from ccb... Pours a semi-hazy orange brown hue and topped with a thin soapy white head... Cedar wood and earthy tea with the former being most prominent... Flavors are more of the same with a boozy cedar presence.. Some spice and yeast and mostly boozy notes. Body at large isn’t too divisive but maintainable. Woody cedar aspects remain prominent. Ok.

UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 Bottle. Hazy deep yellow pour with a white head. Nose is like a cedary saison. Extreme cedar on taste - dry on the tongue. Interesting. decaturstevo (6244) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - APR 13, 2012
Btl shared by drowland. Yellow pour with white head. Pepper, brett, wheat, and cedar. Pepper, corriander, wheaty, and abv. Light bodied with good carbonation. A pretty nice beer overall. michael-pollack (4959) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 10, 2012
UPDATED: APR 11, 2012 750ml Bottle: Got in trade from smith4498; THANKS Jason! Aroma of cedar, wood, slight spice, and a hint of coriander. What a nice coriander scent! Poured orange/gold in color with a large, creamy, dense, off-white head that diminished a bit but lasted throughout. Cloudy/hazy. Very sparkling. Flavor is lightly sweet and lightly bitter. Tastes of cedar, light pepper, and slight yeast. Light to medium body. Slick, then slightly dry texture. Soft to average carbonation. Lightly sweet, lightly bitter, cedar, pepper finish is lightly dry. 9%ABV is completely hidden throughout. I really like this; cedar is your friend. jkwalking05 (4740) - Arlington, Texas, USA - APR 7, 2012
