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.

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.

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.

Bottle from EBF.

Clear golden color with a hint of a haze and straw and darker reddish wood color almost like a cedar plank, nice fizzy head.

Nose is much different than the other two, it still has the light golden saison malts, hints of spices, but it gets pretty peppery actually, a woody toasty cedar aroma.

Taste is also much different, it starts more like a Belgian tripel, with Belgian malts, but a bit of the softer saison flavors. Spices are fairly dominant in this one, with more coriander, pepper, white pepper and bell pepper, and a bit of a light farmhouse yeast flavor, like getting yeasty. The cedar wood comes out as well, more like oak barrel than the other two but not quite there. Finish is still dry and effervescent, but more of the spices and cedar.

Mouth is med bodied, good carb.

Overall pretty good, quite different than the other two, a bit stronger and much bolder. Still a tasty beer.

Part one of the CCB/Bruery imperial saison collaboration, bottled in July 2011. Part 2 and 3 just came out. Not sure why there's no entry for this one yet. With coriander, ginger, and sweet orange peel, aged on cedar spirals. Pours a hazy light orange with one finger of fizzy white head, settles to nil in a minute with no lacing. Smell: lightly toasted, white grape + peach blend, pepper, lots of orange. Taste: pepper and coriander, pulpy orange juice; backdrop is tangy and lightly toasted with milk caramel and grape juice. Ginger toward the end of the sip, along with a little of the cedar character. Slightly soapy in the finish. Very tasty imperial something. Look forward to trying parts 2 and 3.
