COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Fizzness is a combination of a Belgian IPA and a Session IPA. Big aromas of fresh floral hops and sweet citrus radiate from this light copper colored ale. Bright, snappy fruit flavors of raspberry, peach, and orange overshadow the malty attributes. A lively finish full of bitterness, effervescence, and enjoyable spiciness is followed by a dryness that encourages the next taste.

growler pour. amber with slight red hue. small head. quite tart and fruity with a hint of sweetness. hops mix well with the berry and peach. probably not for everyone, but i dug it.

Draft at brewery. Pours Light with a faint redness to it, almost like a wine cooler. The aroma is mainly that of your typical belgian. The taste, wow, and not in a good way. Typically I am not a huge belgian guy and this didn't help. I really can't pick out any single fruit it is suppose to have. Not a fan. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Really liked this one at a recent outing at Short’s. Wonderfully balanced between sweet fruit, hop bitterness and aroma. The first sip has a nice bitter bite to it and the fruit quickly follows. I hope this makes it into a bottle sometime soon!

Silphium (3167) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - AUG 25, 2012
Draft at Short’s. Murky light orange-brown body, thin ring of off-white carbonation. Strong citrus rind nose, also sweet berries and peach, but dominated by hops. Weird spicy, acidic body with peach and citrus rind; catty and bitter with cloves and berryskin. Some orange. The bitter, almost astringent finish is a tad off-putting.
