Bottle sample at CBC.
Taste of riesling wine, wood, citrus, some stable. Nice dryness. BBB63 (6567) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - DEC 22, 2012
Backlogged rating (Joe Peesie Beer Porn gathering), thanks Zach: Golden hued with a good lasting head. The aroma has notes of oak, lemongrass, mango, white pepper, ginger, resiny hops and bready malts. The taste has a lovely balance of spice, booze, fruit and bitterness. I like the touch of cedar tannins and overall spicy notes. The mouth feel is lively yet smooth, a tad sticky. Overall a successful brew that i would gladly try again. 77ships (11026) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAR 9, 2013
THX! To Sebletitje. 75 cl. bottle sampled. Aged on Spanish cedar wood (apparently they stuff they use for cigar boxes to age the stuff – fitting) saison with coriander and ginger. Pours bright orange with a touch amber, oakish, white head. Nose is very unique, I suppose that this is Spanish cedar, its huge, sweet fruity wood, soft, juicy wood, fruity, berries, light sour tang pure wood, ginger, tad sharp,… wow this is new. Picking up lots of ginger in the taste, I assume what is the cedar, stringy, juicy wood, very sharp, hard to describe, sour fruits & more-so sour berries, wild berries, orange peel, fresh grapefruit juice, hint of pear, sour pine, peel,… This is a bit much to take in, I am not even too certain whether I like it or not, bit hard to tell, it is more interesting. Clean, sharp body. Interesting stuff. SpringsLicker (3677) - Tennessee, USA - MAR 29, 2013
Hazy gold with a fluffy white head. Not the gusher that the previous one was.
Funky yeast and lemon aroma.
The flavor starts with a tart bite then mellows out as the sweet fruitiness comes on. The finish is dry and fruity. Stuu666 (14806) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 23, 2015
