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!

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

kramer (5005) - 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.

Strykzone (4966) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - AUG 17, 2008
Orange pour with a quickly dissipating head and plenty of suspended yeast. Yeast, hop, and spice aroma. There is a little bit of everything in the flavor. Yeast, hop, fruit, spice, malt, and alcohol. The hop[ adds a lot of zestiness that electrifies the tongue at times. Bubblegum showed up after the glass warmed, a result of the yeast. So multi-faceted! New flavors in every other sip. Delicious, too!

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.

JPDIPSO (4956) - 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.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4943) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 10, 2010
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a hazy orange-amber color with a large yellow white head that produced some lacing. The aroma was caramel, strong lemon, yeast and pepper. The flavor was tart, and bitter with lemon, pepper and yeastiness mixing. The finish was long, tart lemon. Medium body. Ok.

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.

JK (4476) - 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.

nuplastikk (4439) - 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.
