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!

Gurst (338) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - MAR 17, 2008
Cloying aroma, with hints of spice. Taste is sweet: syrup, caramel malts, cloves, orange, banana, apricots, and allspice. Not too thick, not too thin. Alcohol peaks through in the middle but the finish is all sweet. Drinkable indeed.

Tap. Pint glass. Typical unfiltered wheat orange appearance. Mild citrus aroma. Nice body, not too sweet. A nice summer beer that a guy can order without feeling weird.

Definitely Belgian yeast aroma, but the flavor was more light and citrusy than I expected. Potent abv, but very easy to drink. Much better cold than room temp. This was my first taste from Furthermore but I’m excited to sample more. This one was of high quality and enjoyable.

Well you cannot say this beer is the same old same old. I suppose our RateBeer friends have to put this under some category. May I suggest "Offbeat Blends" or "Hopeless Cute Names"? This one starts with an aroma in the ballpark of a Belgian--all spiced and bubblegummish. The hops give it a dry bite and a peppery finish. Fun to try but definitely not sessionable.

commonmac (263) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 23, 2014
Bottle purchased and poured into tulip glass. Very little head on a deep orange hued ale. Actually a very attractive beer. Aroma has a lot sugar and fruit to it. Plenty of banana and even a little tropical fruit. Really easy to drink. The sweetness carries throughout tip to finish. An enjoyable beer to drink with a soft, Belgian finish. The type of ale you can drink an absurd amount of at St. Paul summer beer festivals.

smooch (238) - Sylvania, Ohio, USA - JUN 20, 2010
Big ’ol banana nose on this thing. A really beautiful deep yellow color. The description from the brewer matches it....sort of a hybrid belgian which is tweaked a bit.

Maltser85 (238) - Fargo, North Dakota, USA - OCT 7, 2013
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.

Pours cloudy honey colour with a litle white head. A floral aroma mixed with that almost pungent Belgium aroma. Hop citrus bitterness hits u at first and then you get the Belgium flavour. It’s a little different, but done well, i kinda like this one.
