been drinking craft a good while now and finally got around to posting my first review on here!
Poured from a 12oz bottle into a Three Floyds teku. Bottled last week.
A: Appearance is a deep hazy orange. Head is pure white and goes away fairly quickly. leaves bits of white lacing around the glass but not a whole lot.
S: Holy Cedar! Cedar absolutely dominates the nose. Maybe a tad bit of citrusy fruit on the end as well.
T: The nose does not lie on this one. Cedar immediately punches you in the mouth. Closest you'll get to taking a bite out of a cigar box. At first 1 or 2 sips you get a lot of cedar but as you continue to drink your palate gets used to it and you pick up a bit of pine as well. Still very cedar forward just not quite as dramatic as the first couple sips.
M: No more than medium body on this one. Not like water but definitely not quite as big as the traditional Jai Alai.
O: Overall this is a great specialty beer. If you do not like beer aged on cedar wood spirals to the max, this isn't the one for you. Don't expect Jai Alai with a hint of cedar. It's clearly part of the "humidor series" for a reason. Drink this on tap at CC all the time and will continue to buy it in 4pks every release. Cheers!
