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!

Poured from the bottle of a six pack, lots of foam on this one, an annoying amount actually. Could only pour about a half a bottle at a time. My palate is not that of the aristocrat so I was not able to taste the bubblegum, but I was not disappointed by this beer, i caught a good buzz and was not offended. I would say that calling it a fatty is somewhat of a stretch, moderately overweight would be a more accurate description, maybe a person with a 27 or 28 BMI. If I were to name this beer I would call it "husky". Lose a point for all the foam.

Light brown, slightly hazy. Extremely smooth, extremely sticky. Just plain good. No alcohol taste. One of the best Wisconsin beers.

Amber color. Aroma of coriander, yeasty fruit, bubblegum. Tasty crisp hops with fruity and spicy flavors. Boozy. Wasn't bad at all. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle thanks to respertftw. Hazy gold with a beige head. Light, fruity yeast aromas. Clovey and a tad sour.

If all Belgians taste like this, then I guess o am not a big fan of Belgians. Would not purchase a gain.??

Bottle. Pours slightly cloudy golden with long lasting white head. Nose is belgian. Taste is similar with some pepper. Some phenols. It wears on you.

355ml bottle. Finally trying this. All I can say is it is straight phenols, nothing else, too one dimensional.

pours a rich clear gold with a frothy white head. The coriander really comes through in the nose. Taste is crisp carbonation with the coriander dominating. fairly dry finish with a little bitter linger. Pretty good.
