Kolor bursztynowy.
Piana biała, średnio pęcherzykowa.
Zapach owoców cytrusowych, wyraźnie wyczuwalne mandarynki i chmielowa "trawiastość".
Smak ponownie przyniósł nuty owocowe, cytrusy, wśród nich mandarynki, pomarańcze. Jest też to uczucie jakby siana czy suchej trawy, może trochę kurzu,
być może to właśnie jest cydr, tego nie wiem. Goryczka w El Cedro nie jest zbyt wysoka i nie jest natarczywa. Mimo 8% zawartości alkoholu nie jest on wyczuwalny w smaku.
Piwo bardzo pijalne i lekkie.

This held true to the description. So much cedar. It was like I was in our cedar closet that we had when I was a kid. Should rename is No Moths. One of those beers that I'm glad I tried, but 4 oz was more than plenty.

This beer pours a beautiful straw yellow with bubbly white head. It smells of yeast and that really comes through on the taste, nice and funky brett. Very dry in the mouth. The cedar and the brett make this beer just strange enough but perfectly balanced to be a standard sipper.

Took a while to get used to the cedar flavor, but it ended up really growing on me.

Very peppery. Didn't really taste the barrel aging.

Pours cloudy golden color eith thick foamy head. Retention and lacing are excellent. Farmhouse yeast and citrus aroma. Citrus taste with farmhouse yeast and oakiness at the end. Mild hoppiness. Oaky aftertaste. Moderately astringent. A very good beer. The wild yeast flavor is still evident as is standard with the brewery.
