Cigar City Brewing – Florida Cracker


Cigar City Brewing was established in 2008 by Tampa native, Joey Redner, Jr. In early 2008, Redner met Wayne Wambles, accomplished professional brewer, and hired him as head brewmaster. Wayne relocated in March of 2008 to begin the process of learning the local culture, applying that culture to CCB’s beers, and opening this new microbrewery in Tampa, Florida

I bought this Belgian style white ale from the wine shop Vinoble in Odense, Denmark at the price of 4 Euro for a 12 oz (355 ml) can at 5,5%

A very bright yellow in the colour and only slightly hazy.

There was no head at all, any bubbles formed at pouring was gone in a second.

Good sweet fruit in the aroma.

Low CO2 but with a good fruit in the taste, there is a suitable play from the hops and spices.

CO2 was too low, no head and the taste can seem a little doll at the end.

Overall rating 76 / 100
