COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The conception and naming of this beer happened in one fell swoop. Unsure whether to offer a light session beer or a fun ball-buster as our warm weather seasonal, we decided on a beer that would be a big, fatty boombalatty version of a Belgian white. And away we went, taking a recipe for a white beer and ramping up the grain bill by 50%; we dropped the amount of wheat by 75% to keep the beer rough around the edges. We bucked tradition by steering the bitterness in the direction of a pale ale, and coupling hops with coriander in the fermenter. The resulting beer gives you all the bubblegum goodness of a big Belgian, with enough crispness to cut through the sweet profile, thus making you want to sip it again and again. Dangerous, indeed!

12oz bottle, shared by beerpig317. Mostly hazy, golden - orange color. Thin off-white head. Couple dots of lace. Aroma of caramel malt and ripe pineapple. Good, citrus-zesty finish. Lighter belgian candy sugar, but its there as well. Good moderate sweet taste, light bitter. Bigger, more full body. Lighter, smooth, kind of crisp carbonation. Satisfying, lightly funky belgian yeast flavor. Good belgian strong.

Bottle to taster (thanks Bunker). Looks solid; a hazy orange with off-white lacing. Smells yeasty and spicy. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. Eh.

Tap. Pint glass. Typical unfiltered wheat orange appearance. Mild citrus aroma. Nice body, not too sweet. A nice summer beer that a guy can order without feeling weird.

Man this beer is so dope. Really great sweet Belgian yeast strain used on this one, give the beer a nice character. Earthy with notes of biscuit, hay, wheat, and delicious crisp finish. Yes!
