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.

Glouglouburp (5929) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 20, 2012
In short: Lots of spicy fresh cedar, fresh fruit salad, rustic yeast and too much residual sugars. An inexplicably drinkable beer
How: Bottle 750ml, consumed fresh, 2 months after first bottle rating. Bottle from GodOfThunder, a uid that can only be explained because of fart sounds he makes
The look: Cloudy blonde-orange body topped by a medium white head with medium retention
In long: Nose is like smelling a fruit salad served in thick bowl made of freshly cut cedar. Taste is has a strong spicy cedar component, fresh fruit salad, sweet orange peels, rustic yeast, dusty attic, white pepper. Light and lively body that encourages drinkability. I was stunned to see this is a 9% beer. The beer is really quite nice until the finish where the residual sugars (flavor of refined white sugar) take too much room, it really doesn’t work with the rest of the brew. Overall I thought this was a fun creation despite the annoying residual sugars. I don’t know if given a little more time the yeast would eat more sugars, because with less sugars this beer could have been pretty good. Once again I’m entering this rating from work, and as usual it puts me 10 minutes behind on my work, and that always happens 50 minutes before I’m one hour late on my work because of, well, you know, the internet.

This just happened to be the cask of the week when I made my first (and definitely not last) visit to the Cigar City Tasting Room. Really, really good stuff.
