4.03/5  rDev +12.9%

Had this on tap at Mikkeller bar in København. Felt weird about ordering an American beer, but running into Cigar City in Texas doesn't happen so I had to do it.

The beer has a huge white head. Took the bartender a bit to get a servable pour. Hazy yellow body. Laces like a champ.

Cedar and orange dominate on the nose.

Oh wow, the cedar harmonizes with the big citrus fruitiness much more than the Zhukov I had from this cedar series. There is some grassy funkiness going on. Has a slight sourness to it.

Light and prickly on the tongue.

The cedar might cut down on the complexity of this beer since it is so prevalent, but it is flat out amazing so screw it. I don't really care.

Thanks to Dixonian for sharing this bottle.

The beer pours a light orange-yellow color with a white head. As expected from a cedar-aged Cigar City beer, this beer smells like a humidor. I get a ton of cedar in the aroma with hardly anything else coming through. The flavor is more complex. I obviously get some strong cedar in the flavor, but there is also a good bit of dark fruit and toffee, as well as some lemon. The alcohol is well hidden. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Lateral tasting with bottles from Lueken Liquors. Funky aroma, the funk stays in the taste and is moderated by some grapefruit and lemon and the wood. Very good very spicy flavour, but you have to tolerate the barnyard. Good drinkability.Full mouthfeel, carbonation significant

750ml bottle

A- Poured into a Cigar City tulip glass. Pours a golden orangish color with an off-white head. 

S- The aroma is fruity malt, citrus, orange peel, hints of spices and some cedar notes as well.

T- The taste is really interesting. Malt up front with bitter orange peel and hops in the finish. The taste is very citrusy.

M- The mouthfeel is light bodied with a high amount of carbonation.

O- Overall, this is another solid beer from Cigar City.

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.

Big thanks goes out to beermeX2 for sharing this one during a recent tasting! Served from bottle into a Mikkeller taster flute. Poured a slightly hazy golden yellow with a one finger pure white head that subsided minimal amount quickly. Maintained decent lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, banana, fruit, wood, and citrus hop. The flavor was of sweet malt, banana, cedar, citrus, fruit, and citrus hop. It had a light feel on the palate with medium-high carbonation. Overall this was a pretty good brew. The flavor on this one was pretty nice and really well balanced. The aroma was pretty nice and very inviting. Really glad I got the chance to try this one as I missed it due to my accident.

Thanks Don for sharing, and schlepping this all the way from Florida. Quick review transcribed from written notes.

Pours a nice sun-kissed orange color, light haze, and a lasting layer of foam on top that deposits some spotty lace here and there.

Subtle aromas of light yeast and phenolic spice, everyone was saying "so cedary" but I didn't pick up much woodiness at all really. To note: wasn't a fan of the cedar-aged Jai Alai either.

Flash of sweetness at first, some tangy note of cedar (apparently), ginger, long dry finish with lingering bready notes. A burly, chewy full bodied saison, it steamrolled the palate and was hard to recalibrate afterwards. Overall though, I can't really say I enjoyed it all that much, but it was fun to try. Thanks again Don!

Pours a hazy orange with a thin white head and slight ring. Crisp aromas of sweet malt, orange peel, coriander, and cedar. Lots of cedar carries through to the taste, along with orange peel, spices, and a good amount of alcohol heat. Mouthfeel is slick, with a medium body and good carbonation. Not bad, perhaps a touch too much cedar in this one, it overwhelms everything else.

Poured into a snifter. No freshness date.

A- Pours a medium gold color with a 1/2 inch head that slightly retains before crouching down to an 1/8 inch head and dots of surface foam. Moderate lacing.

S- Cedar so fragrant it stabs your nose in a nice way. Also the usual tobacco notes.

T- Jeez. You think they used enough cedar in this? It's so overpowering, that's all one can really taste. And it's not the cedar that compliments the hops so well in the Humidor series Jai Alai. It's more pronounced making it taste like you're licking a cigar box plus is more astringent. It blends badly with the high amount of booze as well. Sort of a band-aid flavor also. Plus, there's no indication of saison yeast.

M- Dry and unimpressive. Also stings a bit. Medium carbonation.

O- I was so psyched to have my first CCB/Bruery collaboration but it's just cedar overload. It smells good, but the taste and mouthfeel are certainly lacking. I can only hope the lemon wood aged is better.
