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?

Hazy yellow. The aroma and flavour remind me very much of a witbier. Light tartness. It’s fruity, tangy and fresh.

RasmusOtt (1867) - Aarhus, DENMARK - OCT 5, 2015
Tap @ Borefts Beer Festival. Pours golden orange with a white head. Aroma of wheat, bread crust, some fresh hops, sweeter esters, citrus and floral notes. The taste is refreshing with all the notes from the aroma along with a rather creamy body. Like a wit with a kick of hops - comes out refreshing!

Draft at Borefts, thanks all for sharing! Grass, weeds, light sour, wheaty. Nice, but a bit of a letdown considering this is Magic Rock.
