DalzAle (1944) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - FEB 11, 2009
On tap tonight at The Blue Nile. Pour was a hazy and frothy orange color with slight citrus aroma. Flavor was of funky farmhouse yeast, honey and finished flowery with a very creamy mouthfeel. Overall very good and I actually preffer over the regular cynic.

Skyview (5150) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JAN 9, 2009
On cask and drawn at Grumpy’s NE bar in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Pours a hazy light golden orange brew with a thick and creamy white head that stays with the beer and excellent lacing. Aroma of mild banana esters, apricot, pineapple, peach, honey and light golden multi-grain malt. Taste is close to the regular CynicAle with slight dry herb flavor. Finish continues a semi-dry aftertaste with some light lemon zest and wood character. Not as smooth as the oak aged version but still memorable.

BDR (2534) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - AUG 9, 2009
Real ale tent at GTMW 09. A hazy gold color with a generous head. Similar to Cynic in aroma but with a distinct woody character. A light woody character in the body that was a pleasant addition. I’d like to see more wood aging like this.

NobleSquirrel (3437) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 27, 2009
Fobab VI. Called Ashy Cynic, aged on Ash and not oak. Had a much milder wood flavor than oak would generally force out. Distinctly lemony and spicy. I actually prefer this to normal cynic as it is lighter tasting, less yeasty and more lemony and refreshing. Hazy orange colored with a nose of spice and a touch of banana. Not much wood in the nose. Whatever it is, the aging has mellowed this one into a very nice amalgamation of spice, lemon and sweetness. Very nice.

TheAlum (5530) - Lisle, Illinois, USA - AUG 10, 2009
Sampled at GTMW 2009 (Madison, WI). Pours a hazy dark gold, a few orange notes, natural small bubbly head. Aromas are Cynic to a T. Beglain yeast light, pear, apple, light with subtle ash notes that dry and add slight spice. Citrus notes come out a bit more in this version, fruit forward.. Maybe the ash killed out the yeasty qualities a bit more? Sessionable, smooth, and well flavored. Finish slight spice, dry, and fruity. Very mild bitterness.

MIBRomeo (2537) - Wisconsin, USA - AUG 15, 2009
GTMW Madison Murky off orange color w/ a whispy white head. Lots of sweet fruits maybe passion fruit & mango in teh flavor good piece of hops which dominate. Some light char’d wood notes come through in the aftertaste. Palate is well coated and lightly creamy. A very nice beer.

portableparty (1909) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - OCT 23, 2010
Glass at Darkness days. Pour is bright orange and murky with no head. Big lemon and honey and musty scents. Taste is lemon citrus and musty flavor. Beer was calm and slick with a chaulky finish. Tasty and interesting.

Had on cask while waiting for Darkness at DDay 2010. Little to no head. Super smooth. Some of the wood flavor coming through, but not much. The wood serves more to mellow some of the flavors...Actually prefer this to the regular stuff.

XmnwildX12 (2078) - Farmington, Minnesota, USA - DEC 20, 2013
On tap at Red Cow, pours a hazy golden orange with a thin head and spotty lacing. Aroma is some Belgian yeast and some fruit pulp. Taste is similar, little bit of ash/woodiness in it. Was better than expected. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

November 20, 2013 on cask at Red Cow. Semi-opaque orange pour with no head. Aroma was fruity, spice and wood. Taste was consistent with the aroma, but the fruit and wood are dominant with a bit of spice and dryness in the finish. Smooth, but a bit thin. This was good though the flavors seem more mellow. I liked the Applewood variant better as it enhanced the flavors.
