sebletitje (9951) - Enghien, BELGIUM - MAR 8, 2013
75cl bottle. Thanks Sean (Melody Brewing) for hauling this one back from Philly. Couleur est orange lgrement trouble, col pais blanc-beige. Arme prsente de suite ce bouquet typique de cdre, bote cigare. Ce dernier ajoute demble de jeu une prsence boise mais galement pice qui domine la bire sans pour cela enlever toutes ses caractristiques. Entre cela, sentrechoque des notes de gingembre et de pelure de pamplemousse. Je pense aussi noter une levure belge qui serait peut tre celle de la brasserie Bruery. Palais est agrable au dpart et bien loi du profil typique dune saison type wallonne. Ici, on retrouve distinctement tous les ingrdients noncs; cdre, gingembre et pelure de pamplemousse. Le cdre donne cette dimension unique bois tirant fortement sur lpice, cette dernire pice est par ailleurs supplmente par des notes de gingembre qui viennent presque adoucir le ct pic du bois. Le pamplemousse quant lui offre une certaine fracheur en bouche pour une bire qui peut rebuter du son profil unique. Le tout est complexe, sortant des sentiers battus, avec une pointe de levure rappelant ici un style belge. Malgr ses 9% la bire reste facile boire sans pour cela tre une bire qui coupe la soif. Je ne suis pas certain quun alcool plus bas aurait bnfici de ce traitement du cdre. Au final, belle bire, mais qui reste dans le domaine du gimmicky et qui pour moi se boit une fois sans pour cela devenir une bire que je mettrait en stock chez moi. 25cl aurait t amplement suffisant pour moi.

Hazy golden with a tiny white head. Spicy and fruity tones. Peppers, fruit and bitterness. Medium to full body with a long bitter finish.

@basunen: stor kryddig doft med tydlig inslag av cederträ. Smaken är mycket kryddig men även mycket söt. God men kanske lite jobbig i längden. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 24, 2013
750mL bottle. Poured medium golden with a short, well-retained, whitish head. The aroma picked up lots of floral and peppery cedar notes over mixed lighter-skinned fruits and bready malt.. fruit skins and floral notes on the strong back of the nose. The flavor found warm bread and fruity notes at the core, with tangy fruit skins and bitter floral notes around.. peppery and yeasty on the long finish.. good stuff in there, but it needed some subtlety. Medium-plus bodied with moderate carbonation on the palate.. just too big for my liking.

Hazy off orange pour whispy white head. Peppery earthy bready lemon zest and alcohol on the aroma Im thinking saison. Nice palate lightly creamy well coated. Odd flavor clearly Belgian yeasts then some dry lemon zests a hint of soapyness some hops that dont balance the beer well. Not very good.

Treebs (872) - , Illinois, USA - FEB 15, 2013
750 ml bottle served in a CCB snifter. A: Looks like urine. Thin white head, clear gold body. S: That is some potent cedar. Smells like the inside of a cigar box with a spicy lemon grass and some underlying peppery yeasty. Like with all the cedar aged CCB beers the cedar aging creates a huge imbalance. T: Luckily the cedar is a little more subdued than the nose, but it is still too much apart of the beer. There is a light hop presence with some stone fruit and some back end yeasty notes of pepper and light must. 9% is well hidden M: Light bodied, medium carbonation. Cedar spice in the aftertaste detracts from some of the drinkability. O: As with all the cedar aged CCB beers the cedar is just too much and basically decimates the base beer. A little less cedar aging and the cedar might complimentary as opposed to the leading flavor. Serving type: bottle

Wow this is well another huge cedar bomb. Reminds me of sniffing bug spray with extra deet. Super huge cedar notes dominate all other nuanced flavor here.

750mL bottle, sent from LateStart (thanks Jordan), pours a hazy golden with a small white head. Aroma brings out pungent cedar upfront which dominates, a bit of citrus, but not much else this is all cedar on the nose. Flavour is similar, bringing out prominent cedar notes which dominate, with very light citrus notes. The cedar is monolithic in this, with a light body, leaving strong woody cedar notes. The best of the Dos Costas beers, but still nothing special.

Lateral tasting with bottles from Lueken Liquors. Funky aroma, the funk stays in the taste and is moderated by some grapefruit and lemon and the wood. Very good very spicy flavour, but you have to tolerate the barnyard. Good drinkability.Full mouthfeel, carbonation significant.
