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. ---via BeerBuddy

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.

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.

On tap at Blind Tiger for CCB event. Pours golden with pretty big white head and leaves a thick but quickly-fading lacing on the glass (snifter). Aroma is sweet and funky yeast with some wood coming through already. Tastes of lemon/citrus, some vegetable, and a little hop. Definite wood in there as well, which comes through later than the other flavors. I wouldnt have guessed cedar without knowing the name of the beer, but this is (at least) the second cedar-aged beer Ive tried and they seem to let a lot more of the wood come through compared to other types of wood barrel-aged beers. Stands out because its a little funky, a little zesty, and moderately tart, almost to the point of sour but stopping just short. Something I could definitely drink an entire bottle of.

(trade w/changeup45) - Big frothy white head. Body is golden orange and very clear. No doubting what kind of wood this stuff aged in as youre inundated with the aroma of wet cedar wood at first whiff. Pretty overwhelming if youve never had it before. Sort of like black pepper corns and coriander seeds. Transfers over into the flavor as well. Any hop character is pretty much masked by the harshness of the wood. Theres almost a perfumy flavor to it. Certainly worth trying, but I find it hard to believe anyone can drink this stuff on a daily basis unless theyre part woodchuck! Mightve been better had they steamed the Spirals to take a little bit of the edge off.

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

Pours hazy golden with a thin white head. Strange yeasty woody aroma. Full bodied slightly sweet and floral initially then dry and crisp ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: AUG 28, 2015 bottle I brought to Damicos. Pours cloudy yellow with slight head that fades, nose is moth balls, cedar, campfire, taste is smokey, woody &belian malty yeast quality. finish is nice, not overpowering clean flavors of pale malt. Re-rated Aug-2015. Aroma is tons of black pepper, cedar, smoke and formaldehyde. Taste is similar with too much carbonation. Either this beer got much worse or I was crazy 3 years ago.
