Pours a very hazy orange color with a large white head that takes quite some time to go down. Scent is...oh my goodness...a ton of wood. Cedar wood apparently...I could not tell you what different woods smell like, but it definitely smells like fresh-cut wood and sawdust. Initially, it starts with a slightly tart, funky, barnyard aroma that immediately turns to fresh-cut wood. Citrus aromas follow shortly after, with fresh cut lemon and orange peel. There are some nice spices throughout. Taste is fresh wood at first, followed by orange and lemon. There is a good amount of spiciness to the flavor...ginger, coriander, and thyme. Very complex smelling, and tasting beer. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with a somewhat dry and tingly (minty?) finish. Drinkability is high. Overall, this is very different from any beer I have ever tasted. I really enjoyed this.

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

Pours a slightly hazy, golden orange color with a one finger white head that slowly settles into a lasting ring. Minimal spots of lacing left behind.

Earthy, spicy aroma with some farmhouse funk, citrus fruit, bready yeast and dry, smokey wood. Hints of zesty pepper, coriander and clove followed by grassy hay, banana, bread and apple. I'm also picking up orange peel, alcohol and cedar. I was expecting the cedar presence to be stronger but it's subtly integrated into the nose.

Medium bodied with tight carbonation and a strong zesty spice presence that lingers over the farmhouse funk, light fruit and cedar into a dry finish. Hints of spicy clove, ginger and coriander followed by sweet apple, pear and orange peel. The farmhouse yeast is overpowered but there's a subtle earthy, funky character underneath. The cedar character is nicely integrated and isn't noticeable until the finish where it comes on pretty strong. Still, it doesn't interfere with the other notes, providing a dry smokey finish. Overall this beer is pretty complex and the ABV is well masked making it easy to drink. There's a lot going on but it remains interesting throughout.

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.
