Cask: Pours a hazy peach color with a tiny white head. Aroma is yeasty, clove, strawberry, raspberry, oak, and vinous. Flavor is oak, grape, raspberry, blackberry, yeast, clove, some banana, and a slightly spicy alcoholic finish.

GAManiac (1944) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JAN 26, 2009
Cask at the brewery. Pours a hazy golden orange with a short-lived bubbly head that left no lacing. There’s a pine hop kick up front from the dry hopping which gave way pretty quickly to the big sweet Belgian yeast and fruits underneath. There are hints of some wine-like fruity tartness, but it’s very faint. The taste has the same hop kick up front with the fruity sweetness dominating afterward. The tart berries some through a little more than the aroma and leave a wine-like dryness in the finish. The mouthfeel is very smooth with an initial hop prickliness with minimal carbonation. This is a pretty good beer that I think would gain some added complexity with more time in the barrel with the berries. Still, it was the best of the four casks on offer at the brewery.

kp (10884) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - JAN 18, 2009

Date: January 07, 2009
Mode: Firkin
Source: Brewery
Appearance: opaque burnt orange, frothy white head
Aroma: sweet fruity and spicy aroma with a light leathery funk, nice floral hops
Flavor: dry malt flavor, lots of hops and spicyness,peppery, sweet fruity character brings it back in balance, nice bitterness forms out of the spicyness, just a hint of the funk from the aroma, winey character shows up towards the end
Overall: not that far afield from the regular creeper, needs more time in the barrel, more funk, and a touch more raspberry tartness
