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?

Keg at Craft Islington. Lemon juice, bitter but bit of ice cream too. Strange. Soapy. Feels a bit too boozy. Wheat appears a bit further down. Some interesting herb or something. Maybe clove.
