Good saison.Peppery, fresh, slightley sour. Some woodiness. Good fresh beer. jhgrantjr (473) - Tennessee, USA - SEP 13, 2012
Poured a hazy orange color with seven head, good carbonation. Aroma of cedar, predominantly, and citrus, spices. Taste is sweet, but with a bite. Again, the cedar is dominant. Not as good as the others in this series.

Pours gold with a thin white head. Aroma of cedar, citrus and spices. Taste follows, I'm not sure I love cedar in my saisons and this has quite a bit of cedar

Gedronken met joes, benzai en dutchdrebus, goudkleurig, sigaren kistje geur, houtsnipper, zo rook onze oude kast. Hij smaakt ook naar hout en een beetje verbrand. Veel koolzuur. ngeunit1 (1555) - Waltham, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 9, 2012
A - Pours a hazy golden-orange color with a finger of frothy white head. The head fades down at a normal pace leaving behind some lacing.
S - Aroma is a mix of sweet grainy and lightly bready malts with coriander, orange peel, ginger, Belgian yeast, and cedar.
T - Starts off with sweet grainy and bready malts with some coriander, ginger, and lemon zest. Through the middle, the cedar comes through with some Belgian yeast, and a bit of floral hops. The finish is a mix of sweet bready malts with coriander, orange peel, Belgian yeast, cedar, and a touch of ginger.
M - Medium-plus bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with a dry, sweet, and estery finish.
D - Very drinkable. Nice strong Saison with some good spices thrown in and the cedar adding some nice complexity.

Served in a Cigar City snifter. Holy cedar, Batman. Unreal amount of cedar in this. Fresh plank. Spicy. Like chewing on cedar wood chunks. Terrible. emacgee (4677) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - AUG 31, 2012
Ok, so for starters I’m not a fan of the cedar aged stuff in general. Pours a clean, somewhat viscous, golden orange with two fingers of crackly off white head. Nose is woody/musty, spicy notes upfront, almost rich aroma. Notes of bread dough and yeast. Spicy/musty wood flavor. Rich bready doughy flavor. Medium body and spicy finish. Meh.

75cl bottle shared by Joes. Clear yellow - light orange color, small white head. Smell malts, sweetness, apple, fruits, some herbs and -I guess- cedar wood. Taste malts, sweet, again probably the cedar wood, but a lot of herbs or spices again. A bit fizzy carbonation, medium body. DutchDrebus (6002) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - AUG 30, 2012
Bottle thx to joes. Clear yellow colour with no head. Smells cedar wood, cigar box, black pepper. Tastes coriander, cedar wood, incense. I love the smell, but the corriander kinda wrecks the taste. Medium body, great carbo. fonefan (49437) - VestJylland, DENMARK - AUG 30, 2012
