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

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.

Reviewed from notes. Had on-tap at CCB tasting room. Poured into a snifter glass.

A: Light gold with a bit of haze and a 1 1/2 white foamy head. Some visible carbonation, but not tons.

S: Cedar, citrus, and some Belgian fruity yeast esters.

T: Huge cedar up front, then some puckering lemon flavors, with a light cracker malt. Overall impression is pretty fruity, then a very dry finish.

M: Alcohol moderately noticeable, good carbonation sensation, and a medium body for style.

O: This is the first varietal of the Dos Costas Oeste series I've had on tap. I'm very impressed, and am starting to form the opinion that cedar makes every beer taste better. Really tasty.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A - Pours a hazy golden-orange color with a finger of frothy white head. The head fades down at a normal pace leaving behind some lacing.

S - Aroma is a mix of sweet grainy and lightly bready malts with coriander, orange peel, ginger, Belgian yeast, and cedar.

T - Starts off with sweet grainy and bready malts with some coriander, ginger, and lemon zest. Through the middle, the cedar comes through with some Belgian yeast, and a bit of floral hops. The finish is a mix of sweet bready malts with coriander, orange peel, Belgian yeast, cedar, and a touch of ginger.

M - Medium-plus bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with a dry, sweet, and estery finish.

D - Very drinkable. Nice strong Saison with some good spices thrown in and the cedar adding some nice complexity.

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.
