COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed in collaboration with Folklore Brewing & Meadery and MOOLA (Malty Orgasmics Of Lower Alabama) Homebrew Club.

Wiregrass Post-Prohibition Ale is described as “a straw-colored ale with a mélange of citrus notes that take your palate on a journey through orange, lemon, lime, and grapefruit flavor and bitterness with subtle hints of lightly toasted bread and a delicate whisper of corn”. This brew is a limited release that has been kegged and canned by Cigar City Brewing, and it will only be available in Alabama and in the Cigar City taproom.

BBB63 (5741) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - JAN 24, 2014
Can and served in nonic pin glass: Faintly hazed golden hue with a lasting frothy head. A nice APA, moderate citric and resiny notes, mild biscuity notes but there is something here that I can not put a finger on that sort of smells like dirty rose water or the start of some rotting vegetables. Quaffable enough once you get past the weird vapour.

BuckeyeBoy (2453) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JAN 18, 2014
12oz can thanks to rich. Pours out a hazy golden topped with a white head. Nose is great citrus floral notes and a nice malt. Taste is as the nose with a nice hop combo a good malt combo. Very tasty not sure how this collaboration got formed. My only guess would be it was thanks to Douglas.

artmcd8 (1298) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 9, 2014
Can in a local trade. Pours a murky golden orange with a foamy white head that leaves a full frothy lacing. Aromas of citrus, grapefruit rind, hay, some grass, and a hint of corn. The taste is very well balanced and the corn notes come through a bit at the end with a slight sweetness. Light body with higher carb. An extremely easy drinking beer.

SPDickerman (881) - Texas, USA - DEC 31, 2013
Pours hazy yellow with a small white head. Smells strongly of a variety of citrus fruits. Taste is a melange of citruses with a soft bitterness underneath. Medium-bodied with a slick texture and soft mouth-carbonation, Cigar City Wiregrass Post-Prohibition Ale finishes with a soft lingering citrus fruitiness.

DocJitsu (721) - Florida, USA - DEC 31, 2013
Pours a clear light golden color with a rich, white, one-finger head. Raw dough and light citrus bouquet. Soft, wet, and a little scrubby texture. Lemon oil and bread flavors. Quaffable, as a good APA should be.

hopscotch (8529) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 27, 2013
Can... Hazy golden pour with a small, creamy, white head. Decent retention. The aroma furnishes citrus fruits, breadiness and lightly-toasted malts. Medium-bodied with zippy carbonation. The flavor is bittersweet and a hint acidic, presenting citrus fruits and biscuity malts. Bittersweet, lightly-raspy finish with lingering citrus sweetness.

radarsock (823) - Vermont, USA - DEC 25, 2013
12 oz. can, supplied by hopscotch—many thanks! To long-stemmed wine glass, it pours a Crayola orange with a fluffy whitish head 1½ fingers in length. Smells and tastes of mashed corn, oatcakes, spruce tips, lavender petals, and pond water. Yeast, straw, and citrus hops by swallow. Very drinkable. I felt like I was consuming Wayne Wambles right out of this beer. Enjoyable.

Ready4Aheady (29) - New York, USA - DEC 11, 2013
Cloudy honey-yellow color, thin head, aroma of hops and dust, subtle flavors of tangerine, pine, hops, corn, honey, and vanilla... changes a bit from beginning to end... minimal malt and no bitterness... good but not complex.

Brewed in conjunction with Folklore Brewing, a new outfit in Dothan, Alabama. I had this in a can. Poured a bright pale gold with a medium-sized, quickly dissipating white head. Aroma is mostly hops: earthy, slightly funky (?!), some tropical fruit, hints of grapefruit. Flavor is citrus (lemon and quite a bit of grapefruit), slight tropical fruit, moderately bitter. Toasted malt and, yeah, maybe, corn. Which too me is rarely a good thing in beer. But this works -- solid, interesting beer. Can’t miss with Cigar City. And can’t wait to check out the new Folklore brewery and tasting room.
