One more from Cigar City :-). The scent was an amazing mix of wood, yeast, citrus and herbs. The taste reminded me of a saison, but had more earthy and honey flavors in the mix. Finished dry and fruity with a hint of vanilla and warm alcohol. Truly unique, but as good as I’d expect from Cigar City. jjuf1853 (1302) - Land O Lakes, Florida, USA - MAR 17, 2012
Bottle. Pours a clear golden yellow color with minimal head. Tons of cedar on the nose. Flavor is simply awesome. Boozy without being overwhelming considering the 9%. Excellent collaboration. jbeatty (1267) - New York, USA - FEB 23, 2012
Bottle, 02/21/2012. Pours hazy apricot, soapy white head that fades within a couple minutes, residual surface foam. Aroma carries a big kick of cedar and white pepper, undertones of ginger, a floral character with lightest sweetness on the finish. Taste is dominated by peppery cedar, medicinal herbs and orange ginger in the background, bitter wood aftertaste. Palate is medium, adequate carbonation, with a dry finish. I like a nice cedar character from time to time, but this is perhaps overkill in that department, to the detriment of other flavors and complexities. This went well with food, but by itself maybe hard to stomach more than a glass. pentaz (1264) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 13, 2013
Bottle. Pours unclear amber with a minimal white head. Aroma is dominated by cedar wood, grapefruit, lemon, orange, perfume and pepper. Taste is medium sweet, light+ bitter, and light sour. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is lively. Finish is dry and woody astringent.

Sample from Vinnie. Pours clear orange with minimal white head. Aroma of cedar, orange, lemon, corriander, and some odd spices. Tastes exactly like orange slice candy, with a lot of spice in the back. Soft, clean palate with some more of the corriander spicy sweetness in the finish. Good beer.

Tap at Rattle & Hum. Opaque blonde, bit of a white head. Nose is fresh spicy greenery, touch of cinnamon, grass, thistle, nettle, shedload of young heather. Lemony gueuzeness. Mouth is lemon, massive lemon, wood, cedar obviously, bit of gueuzeness. Bit like if someone stuck an antique sideboard in a pint of gueuze. Weird, do I like this beer? I don't know, i really don't know.

Aroma is pepper, cedar, yeasty biscuits and alcohol.
Taste is tons of pepper; yeah, tons of pepper, cedar, a bit of yeast, and booze.
Finish is dry, pepper, and some residual sugar hidden by the cedar and spice.
Ugh. arone12 (932) - Maryland, USA - MAR 4, 2012
On vacation! Drank this one on the beach! Woop woop. Poured a golden color. Smells a bit citrusy with some orange and grapefruit aromas. Taste is similar. Pretty funky aftertaste. I am guessing that is the cedar. Took me a few swallows to get used to it. Different tasting. Not bad, just different.
