Georgia

4.1/5  rDev -0.5%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

375ml C&C bottle poured into a Tired Hands wine glass

A: Pours an hazy apricot orange color with a finger of fizzy white head. Retention and lacing are below average.

S: Dried apricot is the most prevalent aroma. A bit of peppercorn and clove as well.

T: The flavor is very similar to the aroma. Again, the dried apricot is strong with a nice, yet subtle spiciness behind it.

M: A bit on the thick side for the style with strong carbonation. Very nice.

O: Fruity, spicy, well balanced. I enjoyed this. The more I drank it, the more I liked it.

Serving type: bottle

4.35/5  rDev +5.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

a: golden hue with an ample white/slightly off-white head. Small lacing that retains fairly well.
s: On the nose I get pear, apples, and honey.
t: prickly carbonation, slightly tart with lemon, pepper, coriander coming through; finish with floral, spicy hops lingering
m: high carbonation, medium-light body
o: nice beer. I don't drink a lot in this style, but it's one of the better versions I've had in recent memory. This inexplicably sat in my cellar for a year (bottled 4/22/2013), and I am pleasantly surprised at how it has held up. Will get again next time I am within their distributors' range.
