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!

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.

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.

Skyview (5296) - 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.

This poured a dark amber color with a beige head. Aroma was of belgian spices, slighty roasted, and yeast. Flavor was spicey, some darker candy sugar, and some medium frutiness as well. Pretty drinkable.

Bottle. Deep brass colored body that is clear as possible with that color, topped by a quickly fading light khaki head. The aroma is obvious Belgian yeast inspired with clove, cinnamon and funky banana esters. The taste is lightly spiced with clove and tomatoes. A hint of metal sneaks in the falvor. There is a nice finish that sticks with you, like hay and ginger ale. The body is very light for the abv, this is scary drinkable.

JPDIPSO (5045) - 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.

nuplastikk (5035) - 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.

Bottle courtesy of BeerFMAndy, a man who never disappoints. Served in a tulip. Pours a bright peach color with a really nice two-finger white head. Good lacing as it goes down and a thin collar stays along for the ride. The nose brings some light bready malt as well as a light floral aroma and a bit of earth and spice. Flavor has mild malt sweetness plus a bit of a hop presence. Yeast kicks in with some mild spice toward the finish. Really light, yet creamy, mouthfeel that is the highlight of the beer for me. Nicely done. Thanks again, Andy. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 05-11-2011

12oz. Bottle: Aroma of wheat, lemon, light coriander, citrus, fruit, sugar, slight Belgian yeast, light bubblegum, and a hint of clove. Poured a muddy amber/brown color with a small, white head that diminished but lasted throughout around the edges and as a film on top of the beer. Cloudy. Opaque. Sparkling. Flavor is heavily sweet and light to medium bitter. Tastes of wheat, fruit, light coriander, bitter hops, slight banana, light bubblegum, citrus, pale malt, light Belgian yeast, and a hint of pepper. Medium body. Coating, then dry texture. Average to slightly lively carbonation. Fruit, bitter hop, light Belgian yeast, light bubblegum, and wheat finish is dry.
