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?

On tap at Bishops Folkis, February 2013. An interesting hybrid this one. Hazy golden/orange with a medium white head. Aroma and taste of orange, citrus, wheat and some light spices. Also some yeast. Descent.

Nice mash-up enjoyed many times. Like a Belgian sailor wrestling with a mid-Atlantic hophead busker. Many notes to play. Such good music. mmm that’s right pilgrim.

Towey1989 (241) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 27, 2015
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.

Keg @ Hanging Bat. Pale yellow orange, reasonable head. Yeasty lemon aroma. Hoppy resin flavour. Bitter aftertaste. A really good example of a beer style I don’t normally like.

shoulderbroken (2418) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JAN 15, 2015
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.
