Thanks to koufax21 for bringing this beer to March Madness 2013. Marquette Elite 8 baby!

Pours out a copper, golden and light orangey type of liquid. Small head on it, 1/3". Aromatics really hit you with the cedar and brett. Pretty nice right there. But wait, there's more! Hops. The hop bouquet seems primarily Cascade. Nice mix going on right there.

Its not quite Bitter Monk territory, but the taste function of the hops, cedar and brett really are enjoyable. Lacks the tartness and overall hoppy nouveau of the Monk, but this one is quite good in and of itself, even if it lacks the aggressiveness of style leader here. This one is more like an ipa than a saison in my opinion.

Mouthfeel had just the right carbonation to let three distinct tastes exist in harmony, nobody muscling the other out. Bitterness just right, plenty of wood, good very dry finish. The mix of cedar wood and pine hop flavor is pretty cool. A peppery edge to it as well.

Pretty complex and enjoyable beer. Screw David Hurley at the El Dorado for flip flopping over their committal to support out bottle share the entire week. I won't be recommending anyone have anything to do with the El Dorado ever again if we're gonna play that way. I give you money, you give me your word, you lie and go back on your word, I'm never going to give you money again.

Support craft beer. Respect craft beer. El Dorado Casino in Reno supports neither. But we did get this beer drank before the dishonesty took hold in a guy in a cheap $79 suit who manages a crappy bar.

Bottle: Poured a light dirty beige color ale with a giant white foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of fruity hops with light mango notes with dry Brett notes and some light spicy notes form the cedar. Taste is also dominated by light mango fruity notes with some spicy notes from the cedar and the dry aftertaste and funky notes from the yeast. Body is full with limited filtration and good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Incredible amount of complexity can be found in this beer but it also retains an extremely high level of drinkability.
