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!

zebracakes (1339) - Washington DC, USA - APR 19, 2008
Bottle. A gift from CMUBEERMAN. Andrew, you totally rock! Pours clear orange gold. Aroma is musty, tangy, hoppy, spicy (coriander, clove). Flavor is similar. On the spicy side and reminds me of hefeweizen. A bit too spicy to be "dangerously drinkable" though.

hapjydeuce (952) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 19, 2008
Extra sent through trade via beastiefan2k. Shared at the Pizza Port Bottle Shop. Pours hazy dark orange with a rocky white head. Fruity banana, light clove and orange citrus in the aroma. Some apricot, bubblegum and coriander, but mostly more banana, lemon and orange character to the flavor. Medium carbonation. Finishes a bit harsh with lasting tones of wheat. Not bad.

troyc (2473) - Illinois, USA - NOV 5, 2009
[Bottle] Pours a hazy dark golden color with about a appropriate sized white head. Aroma of yeast, bubblegum, spice and sweet biscuits. Taste is of clove, wheat malt, citrus zest and moderate hopping. The alcohol is somewhat noticeable, especially in the finish. Quite sweet overall, except for bitterness in the finish. Decent body, but a little out of balance. Not as good as I had hoped.

redlight (2317) - Orlando, Florida, USA - OCT 21, 2007
Dry metalic aroma. Pours golden with no head. Sweet, a little cidery, cotton candy, and a little spicy in the flavor, a little banana. Kind of weak in the flavor. Not bad.

BrockLanders (774) - Panama City, Florida, USA - DEC 27, 2007
bottle. Hazy pale yellow pour...smallish white head. Sweet malt nose...yeasty, musky, and light fruits. Medium bodied with a grassy yeasty flavor....more light fruits too. The maltiness remains throughout...maintains that belgian ale flavor to the end....nice attempt at a witbier.

Pours hazy yellow/gold with a medium white head. Aromas of citrus, banana, clove, and yeast. Taste is very much the same, but still does not taste as good as it smells. A bit too much carbonation and too much of a dry finish for me. Overall just ok.
