COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A decidedly light hearted take on a European classic. An extra pale body and subtle bitterness set the tone letting the speciality Belgian yeast shine, while Curacao Orange and Coriander add fruity, spicy notes. True to form we decided to clown around with sack loads of our favourite US hops in the hop back and in cold conditioning. The result is a beer to lift the spirits and make you smile, not one for the purists maybe but whoever took a Clown seriously?

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - NOV 11, 2012
On tap at Craft Beer Co. While I was generally impressed with the Magic Rock offerings I tried, not much can overcome my general indifference to wits. Certainly a fresh, vibrant golden pour, well-bedecked with foam. Strongly yeasty nose, nothing cloying and indeed a hint or two of saison. But the taste was just a bit average, losing the modest complexity the nose hinted at. Okay.

Keg at Port Street Ale House, Manchester. A clear golden colour with a thin white head. Aroma of belgian yeast, lemon, coriander, apple and resin. Taste of citrusy lemon, orange, apple, belgian yeast, coriander, earthy hops and resin. Medium bodied and moderate carbonation. A citrusy, herbal finish. I wasn’t expecting to like this but it’s refreshing, tasty and quite unique. A must try.
