COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The conception and naming of this beer happened in one fell swoop. Unsure whether to offer a light session beer or a fun ball-buster as our warm weather seasonal, we decided on a beer that would be “a big, fatty boombalatty” version of a Belgian white. And away we went, taking a recipe for a white beer and ramping up the grain bill by 50%; we dropped the amount of wheat by 75% to keep the beer rough around the edges. We bucked tradition by steering the bitterness in the direction of a pale ale, and coupling hops with coriander in the fermenter. The resulting beer gives you all the bubblegum goodness of a big Belgian, with enough crispness to cut through the sweet profile, thus making you want to sip it again and again. Dangerous, indeed!

The beer pours a nice golden with a hint of orange. Hazy. White, rocky, two finger head. The aroma is huge phenolic notes from the yeast. A bit bubblegummy. The taste is a little astringent. Almost a little sour from the wheat. Bready malt notes, phenolic notes from the yeast, more bubblegum. Something that wants to be peppery notes but just isn’t. Tastes like there is a hop presence. Maybe a hint of hop citrus or grassiness. A bit of coriander on the finish maybe. The beer is medium light and the alcohol is slightly present. Not terrible, not amazing, something nice though.

Bottle shared by Beerpig317. Poured hazy dark amber with an average frothy white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate complex balanced aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Solid balanced bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. This is a smooth complex beer.

12oz bottle, shared by beerpig317. Mostly hazy, golden - orange color. Thin off-white head. Couple dots of lace. Aroma of caramel malt and ripe pineapple. Good, citrus-zesty finish. Lighter belgian candy sugar, but it’s there as well. Good moderate sweet taste, light bitter. Bigger, more full body. Lighter, smooth, kind of crisp carbonation. Satisfying, lightly funky belgian yeast flavor. Good belgian strong.

Bottle to taster (thanks Bunker). Looks solid; a hazy orange with off-white lacing. Smells yeasty and spicy. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. Eh.
