Pour is clear orange with off white ring. Nose is heavy citrus and grapefruit with a faint note of cedar and barely any Saison. Taste has more farmhouse to it with a strong grapefruit and citrus backbone. Fairly sour dry finish on a fuller syrupy body.

Serving type: on-tap

Who brought this? Treebs? If so, you're slowly taking over my mantle of Bad Beer King. Served in a Russian River tulip.

A - Minimal white foam settles to nothing. Looks a bit like dehydrated and slightly hazy urine.

S - Smells like cedar, with a touch of sourness and orange peel in the periphery. It's mostly cedar to be honest, which I don't find offensive, but it's a bit mono-dimensional.

T - The taste is a bit more complex, with some of the citrus zest, sweet malts, and spices surfacing amid the massive amount of cedar. Gets harsh and unpleasantly woody in the finish.

M - Medium-full body, low carbonation, and super dry - like licking a piece of wood. Alcohol is well-hidden I suppose.

D - Well, on the plus side it didn't violently explode all over the floor like the Grapefruit Wood version. That being said, this tasted significantly worse - the cedar obliterated virtually everything I liked about the other versions and grew incredibly fatiguing.

750 ml bottle served in a CCB snifter.

A: Looks like urine. Thin white head, clear gold body.

S: That is some potent cedar. Smells like the inside of a cigar box with a spicy lemon grass and some underlying peppery yeasty. Like with all the cedar aged CCB beers the cedar aging creates a huge imbalance.

T: Luckily the cedar is a little more subdued than the nose, but it is still too much apart of the beer. There is a light hop presence with some stone fruit and some back end yeasty notes of pepper and light must. 9% is well hidden

M: Light bodied, medium carbonation. Cedar spice in the aftertaste detracts from some of the drinkability.

O: As with all the cedar aged CCB beers the cedar is just too much and basically decimates the base beer. A little less cedar aging and the cedar might complimentary as opposed to the leading flavor.
