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?

yngwie (16504) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 16, 2016
On tap at Patrick’s. An almost clear one, with a small, dense off-white head. Citrusy, lightly yeasty and spiced nose with some malts. It’s medium bodied and quite smooth on the palate, with a nice bitterness. Sort of boring flavor though, with yeast and spice notes, and some pale malts. Mostly on the fruity side, also in the finish. Sort of buttery and fatty. Rather weird this one. Not my kind of beer. 160716
