COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Morganton in Western North Carolina, today home of the Fonta Flora Brewery led by its creative mastermind Todd Boera, who gives emphasis to using local Appalachian ingredients in his beers whenever possible. Todd’s vision that ”fermentation is yet another medium for creating art” is much more than just a phrase, it’s the actual ideology behind the brewery. However, what few people outside the US know, is that this area plays an important role in American history. 500 years ago it was a proud mainstay of several native American chiefdoms. Joara being one of them, neigbouring Cofitachequi being another. This beer is named after the mythical chieftainness “The Lady of Cofitachequi” who is believed to be one of few – if not the only – female native American rulers. Taken prisoner by invading Spanish conquistadores, on an insatiable hunt for gold, this proud lady managed to escape and rejoin with her people. The invaders built several forts in an attempt to control the area, only to see them all destroyed and burned down by local warriors months later. Only one out of 120 Spaniards is said to have survived. The defeat effectively ended all Spanish attempts to colonize the area. The Lady and her fellow chieftains were again rulers of their own land.

Ingredienser: Vand. Bygmalt: Pilsner, Pale, Cara-pils. Humle: Amarillo, Simcoe, Citra. Gær: US-ale

Samuel214 (1193) - Örebro, SWEDEN - AUG 13, 2017
Flaska från SB. Ljusguldig, lätt disig med tätt, vitt skum. Gräsiga, örtiga och nästan kryddiga humletoner med drag av tallskott, kåda och citruszest. Fin, lite tuggig maltbas med lätt söta honungstoner. Flaskan har stått ett tag, men fortfarande bra riv i humlen med bra beska. Riktigt trevlig!

bjorn77 (506) - Kraków, POLAND - JUN 30, 2017
Aromat świetny, niezwykle owocowy i soczysty, bardzo świeży i intensywny, tony słodkich i świeżych owoców tropikalnych, mango, marakuja, ananas, również dużo cytrusów, pomarańcze, czerwony grejpfrut. Niezwykle owocowy aromat. Wygląd: pomarańczowo złote, średnio przejrzyste, średnia, drobnopęcherzykowa biała warstwa piany. Smak: podobnie jak w aromacie niesamowicie owocowe, świeże i soczyste. Mango, ananas, marakuja, czerwone pomarańcze, czerwone grejpfruty, mandarynki. Lekka owocowa słodycz, piwo raczej z kategorii słodkich, ale jednocześnie rześkich i lekkich, zero karmelu i landrynek. Goryczka dosyć mocna i zalegająca, świetnie kontruje tę słodycz i balansuje piwo. Goryczka żywiczna i trochę grejpfrutowa. Wysycenie i ciało średnie, w sama raz. Bardzo pijalne i smaczne. Punkcik do całości za niesamowitą owocowość wyciągniętą tylko z chmieli. Świetne piwo. 9/4/8/4/17

Rune (13003) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUN 7, 2017
Draught at MBCC. Red Session. Next to clear golden body, diminishing white head leaving spotty lacing down the glass. Inviting smell of citrus drops. Lemony hops to the taste profile, some impact of bread. Good bittersweet support towards the ending. Well built. Good drinking. (Copenhagen 13.05.2017).
