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!

Draft. Very hazy golden pour with some light head. Aroma is very big, citrus, and wheat notes. Flavor come through well but doesn’t live up to aroma. Decent belgian ale, not too much abv.

kramer (5687) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 5, 2010
12 oz bottle. Pours a slightly hazy yellow gold body with virtually no head at all. The nose is really nice: tropical fruits, fresh delicate hops, a subtle coriander note, light yeast, and indeed a touch of bubblegum. The bright hops and coriander grab you right away, yielding a heavy perfume like flavor that while interesting, isn’t especially great. A heavy dose of sweetness and tropical fruits follows, but it does dry out a bit on the back end with the help of the fizzy effervescent carbonation. Rather heavy on the tongue for a Belgian Ale, but the carbonation does help. Overall a pretty interesting beer, perhaps not the greatest, but I did like it.

notalush (5623) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 22, 2011
Hazy copper - fizzy body, minimal head - nose of spices, overripe apples, wheat, very light, earthy phenols - lively texture, medium body - medium dry, with flavors of toasted grains, peppery character, light fruit sweetness - subdued spices and phenols, but rustic and earthy nonetheless - finish is moderately acidic, with lingering bitterness - tasty.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - APR 8, 2007
This pours a cloudy, pale amber body with a white head that slowly reduces to a ring around the glass. The aroma has the sweetness of pale malts covered by flowers and bath soap with perhaps a touch of red cherries. Sweet malt and light fruits make up the flavor with an intensifying floral bitterness that lasts into the finish. Pretty decent offering.

nuplastikk (5568) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 26, 2009
12oz bottle. Hazy orange-tan color with a thin white head. Crisp herbal yeasty aroma, some decided sweetness. Very interesting and unique beer, par for the Furthermore course. In some ways like a Double White, with a thick malty sweetness behind the vanilla-orange peel edges. I suppose the term "bubblegum" will have to suffice in describing the sweet, herbal yeasty flavors. The spicy/herbal attributes of the beer come off pretty strong. Ginger, coriander, cinnamon..you name it. Complex and unique.

JK (5562) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - JUN 8, 2007
Furthermore’s second best beer. Aroma of a barnyard, very Belgian in character. Flavor has lemon and lots of hops blended with spices. Refreshing and easy to drink. Aroma leads the drinker to believe it might even be sour but it doesn’t get there.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - OCT 5, 2007
Bottle: Hazy copper gold, light head and lacing. Nose of bright carbonation and yeast, grass, citrus, hay, bright citrus and grass. Wait, I already said that....and typed it. The flavor is plickery on the mouth, more grass and citrus. Nice belgian notes, interesting. Don’t ask me what plickery means, but there it is on my notebook. I was drinking, so it can’t be wrong.

Skyview (5419) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JUN 2, 2007
Picked up a single 12-oz bottle from Bob’s McFarland Liquors in McFarland, WI. Pours a cloudy light caramel amber brew with a thick fizzy off-white head. Aroma of light wheat, yeast and a touch of orange peel. Other aroma picked up were banana esters and herbal hops. Taste is highly carbonated, yeasty dry palate and medium bodied. Finish is dry and smooth. An unusual name for a Begian Ale and a good light style Belgain at best.

wlajwl (5360) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - MAR 2, 2014
Aroma is Belgian yeast, bubblegum and malts. The flavor is lemons, fruit, mild sweetness, malts and a mix of mild alcohol and tangy in the finish.

JPDIPSO (5299) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 19, 2007
Hazy to cloudy amber color with a diminished off-white head. Bread dough, honey, orange peel, banana and bubblegum. Certainly a full belgian ester/phenol aroma. More a strong, fruity wit aroma. A light honey flavor start with some pale malt and tropical fruit mixed in. A background of wheat and oat. Quite full in feel, nearly too full, but still enough zip to keep it lively. Light fruit seem to come out more at it lingers in the glass, with raisins and currants. A decent standard Belgian ale. Certainly beats paying $3 for something similar and less fresh.
