2.85/5 rDev -20.2%
750 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Reviewed from notes.
Appearance - Deep burnt orange with a small white head. Decent retention.
Smell - Cedar. Kinda peppery. More cedar. Then some cedar. Might be some pale malts in there, too.
Taste - And the cedar continues. Some malts, but really, it's all cedar. Slightly sweet with some fruitiness. Bitter, woody finish.
Mouthfeel - Overly woody, but it doesn't feel as heavy as other variants. Bitter, too.
Overall - The beer is lost. Way too much wood.

The beer is ~1 yr old
The beer pours a hazy light amber with a fluffy white head that gushes out as soon as the cap's cracked. The nose is a spicy mix of distinct cedar, honey sweetness, a touch of fruit and peppery hops. The taste brings forward the same earthiness from the cedar and spice profile, but also juicy fruitiness from the yeast, grain, and orange peel. It's light-medium bodied, effervescent, spicy, semi-dry, bitter, and gracefully hides the alcohol. I'm happy to try this collab, but it's way too expensive for a repeat.

Exuberantly fruity, and a bit on the sweet side. I can be a critic of too much wood influence in beer, but this needs a bit more cedar to check the sweetness and fruitiness. The ginger is detectable in the aroma, but gets lost with the fruit in the taste. The fruit itself is a bit of a melange, but overall comes off like overripe peaches and plums soaked in some grappa. I think this one was better on paper than in reality.
