look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Bottled: 7/2013 Received in a trade from fellow Purdue grad Nablock. Cheers!

Appearance: Nice frothy head that lasted the whole glass. Semi-opaque with carbonation flowing up the sides of my Deschutes tulip.

Smell: Not enough cedar for my liking. Huge Brett nose and not much else. Even when room temperature it didn't speak to me other than "Hi, it's me your buddy Brett!"

Taste: Funk, little glimpses of hops and then the slight hint of cedar. For a beer aged in cedar I expected there to be more of it. The Brett was almost overpowering. Surprising to see that in only two months the hops faded that quickly.

Mouthfeel: Dry, very dry. Lingering bitterness and twang throughout the drink.

Overall: It was an interesting attempt to differentiate the saison style but it just didn't have enough hop or cedar. Maybe a fresh bottle would change my mind.
