Named after a fly fishing lure, the Woolly Bugger is brewed with a combination of ingredients from around the world. French malts combine with German, Czech and American hops and are fermented with a Belgian Yeast. Look for significant bitterness balanced by some residual sweetness and finished with classic Belgian characteristics and higher alcohols.

Had on draft @ The Gamble Mill brewpub, in Bellefonte, PA, USA and before that, Zeno’s Pub in State College, PA (home of US child raping coverups) .. . deep sweet malts .. light bitterness .. good amount of yeast .. quite the tasty brew .. . . Rest assured, I was on the Internet within minutes, registering my disgust throughout the world.

Transfer from BA review on 7-12-12 - Served on tap in a 10 oz chalice glass Appearance – Served a hazy orange yellow color with a one finger white head. The head faded over a moderate time to leave a medium level of lacing. Smell – The smell was heavy of a sweet Belgian white with a lighter IPA aroma. Biscuit, yeast, and citrus aromas are big, with some lighter aromas of banana and peach mixed within. There are also some nice spicy aromas as well as some floral aromas that round out the flavor along with a light boozy smell. Taste – The taste starts out sweet and biscuity. The sweetness is a nice mix of citrus tangerine and some sugary candy flavor. As the taste advances some lighter flavors of yeast meet the tongue. The sweetness seems to intensify slightly as the flavor advances on further with more fruity flavors of citrus and some peach and apricot coming to the tongue. These fruit flavors are also accompianied by some spicy and hoppy flavors as well. There are notes of a citrus hop as well as some floral notes. At the end a light boozy flavor meets the tongue and leaves a very satisfying flavor on the tongue. Mouthfeel –The body of the brew is a little above average in thickness with a carbonation level being on the lower to average side. The carbonation and the body are both very fitting and help to accentuate the nice yeasty and fruity flavors of this strong brew. Overall – Very tasty. At 10.5 % it is very easy drinking (a somewhat dangerous thing). A good brew to try if you get a chance.

UPDATED: JUN 26, 2014 Sampled on draft this beer poured a hazy peach color with a medium sized foamy off white head that left a bit of lacing. The aroma was tangy and sweet with notes of table sugar, golden fruits and tropical fruits. The flavor was tangy and bready with tart orange, tropical fruits, golden fruits, table sugar, bread and black pepper. Long finish. Moderately full bodied. Quite solid.

On tap at Otto’s. Fruity hop aroma, resin and apricot with yeast sweet Belgian nose - between a Belgian ale and a triple. Cloudy, golden amber-orange with white lacing head. Medium bodied, with medium-smooth carbonation, light warming. Starts sweet with honey and apricot, Belgian yeasty tripel notes. Stays sweet throughout with mild to medium hop bitter finish. Fruity with apricot, resin, honey, alcohol. Bitter orange peel in the finish. Sweet warming yeasty after, really nice, though slightly cloying at the end.
