We’re about to light up Florida with this Cigar City collaborative brew. Our Belgian yeast tangos with Anaheim and Marash peppers along with loads of citrusy hops to create an ale full of spice. Aged on Spanish cedar to salute our mutual love for wood!

Pours a clear golden with a thin white head that leaves some lacing. Nose is of pepper and cardboard. Taste is a bit muddled and old as well, offering a light bitterness along with some sherry, sugar and a vague chili heat. Hops are long gone. Pretty sure this wasn’t meant to age... Average body and carbonation. Pretty much dead...

Pours a dark golden amber. Aromas of chilis, hops, and some spices. Astringent cedar notes and hoppy flavor, not much chili.

22 oz bottle. Pours a mostly clear golden color and topped by a thick layer of off white foam that shows good retention. The aroma Is fruity and spicy with notes of chili peppers, citrus fruit, some wood, and a bready, pale malt base. Some earthy hops and spice come through as well. The flavor follows with the citrus fruit that is very tropical in nature with some earth chilis, sweet caramel and pale malts, a touch of wood, and some earthy hop bitterness on the back end. The chilis add a touch of heat, but not as much as expected. The flavor is more sweet and fruity with light spice. The cedar doesn’t come through much either. Medium bodied with balanced carbonation that leads to a bitter sweet and spice finish. Interesting beer, but not really what I was expecting. Still a nice flavor to it.

22oz bottle in a taster glass. Pours amber with an off-white head. Aroma of generic beer plus some peppers. Flavor the same. Boring.

Rating #1191. 19.07.2014 On tap @revolutionyeg Pours a golden yellow with a white foam that bubbles away quickly. Aroma is cascadey-citrusy hops and still roasting peppers. Taste is quite smooth, lightly hopped, mild sweetness and the smokiness/heat from the chilis lingers into the finish, but is not unpleasant. Predictably spicy and delicious.

sebletitje (8957) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JUL 15, 2015
66cl bomber, BB 11/2014. De couleur orangée-ambrée, col épais crémeux blanc/beige. Arôme offre un bouquet discret des piments, je m’attendais à un peu plus, peut-être que l’age y est pour qcq chose. Le cèdre est minimaliste et loin de ce que on avait l’habitude de voir chez CCB sur pour une bière de 8%. Palais offre une fine note épicée avec ce ôté levure NB assez reconnaissable. Malt du côté carapils, pâle, léger cara, sec en bouche avec une sécheresse boisée du cèdre. Le pimenté monte un peu sur la fin mais sans plus.

Reimer96 (1743) - Alberta, CANADA - JUL 4, 2015
Pours a clear golden orange with a big frothy white head. Aroma of sweet pale malts, light vegetal nose with some spicy chilis. Taste is a big sweet malty body balanced nicely with moderate citrus hops, light wood flavor and light chili’s for further balance. This beer doesn’t have as much chili as I’d like but it’s super balanced and easy to drink for 8.5 percent.
