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.

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.
