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!

Pour is hazed orangey amber with a thick dense off white head...smell is so super strong with bubblegum and hints of orange peel and coriander...taste is sweet and fruity at first with orange and bubblegum...MilkmanDan hit this rating right on the head...sweet and quick finish...the finish leaves a little to be desired though...to slick and fast...

Bottle rating. Pour is orange with a simple white head. Flavors are very reminicent of Surly Cynic Ale, although slightly sweeter. Coriander, apricot, bubblegum, and wheat. Very nice brew, my second solid beer from Furthermore (2 out of 2).

12oz bottle from Casanova. Poured with a thin white head, dark orange in color, cloudy. Strong yeast & wheat aromas with notes of spice in it. Thick mouthfeel with a very tangy yeasty flavor. Very full bodied for a wheat beer, lots of good stuff going on in this beer.

( 12oz bottle thanks to BA Ktown67 in person) A mildly aggressive pour yields a perfect 2 finger head which recedes slowly. This beer laces very nice on the glass. The color is a dark yellow with tones of orange and lots of bubbles creeping up the side of the glass. Smells like leather up front, but then yields to sour fruits. There is also pepper in the nose. Taste of sour apple, sweet and sour pear, white wine-style grapes but no alcoholic presence whatsoever. There is also a nice balance of pepperiness that I generally only find in the best Belgians. Sweet, spicy, and refreshing. This beer was perfectly carbonated, nice and creamy to drink, and oily with an almost perfect weight to its body. Matched the style extremely well.

Bottle: Hazy dark golden with a big white head, nice spicy nose of coriander, citrus, and yeast, flavor was impressive, with a fair amount of citrus, spice, and bread goodness and a very light bitter finish. Enjoyable.

otakuden (1783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 12, 2010
Appearance: murky orange with shimmers of golden straw drifting on through. Fluffy orange pith head clings to sides of the glass, crawling up to form a solid thick collar. Swirls nicely.
Nose: orange and upside down pineapple cake. Orange skin and pith contribute some dryness along with more esters. Cinnamon, cumin, and grains of paradise. Banana peels, preferably green. Wafers, leather, sawdust and old bales of straw. An interesting mix of tropical fruit skins, freshly peeled.
Palate: soft along the sides and in the front. Flavor highly concentrated in the middle. Spices abound from start to finish; cumin and nutmeg especially with hints of grains of paradise. Coconut husk, leather, dusty baled hay, and pineapple skin minus the flesh. Very fast dry finish; thirst inducing. Raw honeycomb for an earthy down home sweetness. Green banana peel. A touch thin but not detrimentally so; flavors more than make up for it. Orange skin peel and pith.
Final Thoughts: besides the funky name, she was a wee bit of a funky brew. I initially started out tasting her rather unimpressed, but by the time I was done she had surely grown on me. An intriguing take on the ambiguous Belgian ale style.

Man this beer is so dope. Really great sweet Belgian yeast strain used on this one, give the beer a nice character. Earthy with notes of biscuit, hay, wheat, and delicious crisp finish. Yes!

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.

StewardofGondor (1934) - Washington Heights - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 26, 2007
Mostly translucent and orange with caramel accents for color, and an everlasting, creaming, whipped foam head. Aroma starts things off right, with sweet banana meringue, caramel saturated honey grahams, massive amounts of fresh coriander, hints of grains of paradise and a rustic, sweet lime treated accent at the end. Flavor produces a similarly amplified picture. Coriander is freshly harvested and cracked, then dispersing with a fairly husky complex throughout the palate. Crispy wheat chex and cackled white pepper treat with pils malt and a hint of buttery sourdough baguettes. A supporting role of banana-apple marmalade sneaks in with prominent hopping before fading into the larger coriander motif. Medium to fuller bodied and well balanced with fluffy carbonation and a heightened, tripel-esque bitterness. The finish is one hundred percent coriander smashed with a colander onto honey graham crackers. Quite an enjoyable summer quaff.
