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 from CHristmas sampler. Ar: Banana, spice, and yeast. Ap: Pours a hazy golden light copperish with a one inch frothy head that leaves nice lace. T: Moderate sweetness, good tartness comes through on the finish, little bitterness but fairly tart. P: Moderate body, fairly strong carbonation.

Un-Muzzling Olde Muzzlehatch Ratings, #45 12 ounce bottle drunk at my friend’s house in St. Louis Park, MN, August 2008. Huge head diminishes slowly atop a cloudy goldenbody....lovely floral/earthy aroma, woodsy and barnyard-inflected, with soft peaches and a touch of sour lemon...sweeter than some, and a bit syrupy, has a honey/vanilla character, but enough earthy yeast makes it through to keep it reasonably balanced...soft, moderate carbonation, light-bodied yet not at all thin, tingly...slightly more alcoholic than it’s weight would indicate, but this really isn’t problematic given the overall qualities on display.

I Bought it for the sole reason that it had a funny name. Drinkable, but disappointed.

Nose is full of perfume and roses. Very floral. Light pear. Taste is initially bitter then a significant alcohol warning. More pepper as it warms. Overall a nice Belgian triple or gold strong. A little sweet but well done.

TattooJack (509) - Illinois, USA - MAR 4, 2015
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.
