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.

Rune (12604) - 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).

drjoeng (1230) - SINGAPORE - JUN 7, 2017
7%ABV. IPA. Tapped out gold. 8 SRM. Nose is sweet with ripe citrus, orange, tangerines, ripe pineapple and guava Mouthfeel is light juice. Palate is toasted honey grahams, watered honey. Hops are pine sap, oleander sap, spruce tips all the way to the end. Finish is long with a lingering bitter suggestive of oleander sap. Cloying. Not for those who don’t like alpha acids lingering on the tongue. Good.

200 ml draft in a small tulip glass. This IPA pours a hazy golden colour with a white dollop of froth, which leaves intricate lacing as it recedes. The aroma is perfumed with hoppy notes, grapefruit especially, but also other citrus fruits and florals. The taste is sweet and fruity, again with dominant grapefruit, slowly fading into a bitter finish. Carbonation is mild, with a nice bite to the mouthfeel and the medium body.
