COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This light-hued beer was inspired by Belgian Tripels and Golden Strong ales. A high percentage of Pilsner malt and a new yeast strain we used present a lemon character in the aroma. This citrus quality carries into the flavor and finishes with a slight tartness. This beer is well balanced and smooth, making it easy to drink and sightly deceptive because of its high ABV.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4831) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 11, 2013
From the September 2013 3R6P tasting +++ Sampled from a 750 ml brown bottle this beer poured a hazy pale yellow color with a large foamy white head that lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was tangy sugar, ripe golden fruits, bubblegum, bread dough and passion fruit. The flavor was tangy and sweet sugar, golden fruits, bubblegum, bread dough and passion fruit. Long tangy sugar, passion fruit and golden fruit finish. Only a touch boozy with a moderately thick and full body. Quite nice.

Thanks, Jeff! Interesting to try this hybrid, to see where the Funky ones go with a slightly different style. Wasnít quite up to the level of others Iíve had from them but still quite solid. Lustrous honey gold pour with a boisterous head, consistent carbonation and lacing. Nose was quite yeasty indeed, with the tartness of raw yeast evoking citrus, back up by some grain and spice. Could have use a bit more in the way of hopping to dry it out a bit and give it balance, as the tastes stuck just a bit too much in the honey/tartness corner for me. But the finish redeemed things, bitter and lengthy.
