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!

Well you cannot say this beer is the same old same old. I suppose our RateBeer friends have to put this under some category. May I suggest "Offbeat Blends" or "Hopeless Cute Names"? This one starts with an aroma in the ballpark of a Belgian--all spiced and bubblegummish. The hops give it a dry bite and a peppery finish. Fun to try but definitely not sessionable.

Light orange color. Spicy pepper and marmalade in there, with a good mix of spice and sweet. Some bready and bannana aspects as well. I agree that is is VERY similar in all respects to CynicAle.

Dark Orange/Amber color with a cloudy appearance. The flavor is a mixture of sweet yeasts, floral hops, hefe-cloves, bananas, bubblegum, toffee, malts and barley. The body is a bit heavier, the carbonation is balanced quite well and it feels very crisp when drinking. It’s a pretty good Belgian Style ale, not the best I’ve had but it’s definitely up there!

Poured from the bottle of a six pack, lots of foam on this one, an annoying amount actually. Could only pour about a half a bottle at a time. My palate is not that of the aristocrat so I was not able to taste the bubblegum, but I was not disappointed by this beer, i caught a good buzz and was not offended. I would say that calling it a fatty is somewhat of a stretch, moderately overweight would be a more accurate description, maybe a person with a 27 or 28 BMI. If I were to name this beer I would call it "husky". Lose a point for all the foam.

13mikey (503) - New Hope, Minnesota, USA - SEP 4, 2009
12oz bottle from Casanova. Poured with a thin white head, dark orange in color, cloudy. Strong yeast & wheat aromas with notes of spice in it. Thick mouthfeel with a very tangy yeasty flavor. Very full bodied for a wheat beer, lots of good stuff going on in this beer.

jebert (500) - Watertown, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 14, 2011
Pours a slightly cloudy golden amber with a huge head of white foam mostly lasting with lots of tiny bubbles. Nose is citrus and spices. Taste is very flavorful with spices, citrus and hops complete with a bit of zing. Finishes on a fairly dry hop note. An excellent Belgian- not as sweet as most. To be enjoyed with white cheeses, apples and crackers.

LtJudge (468) - Muskego, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 28, 2008
Pours a clear amber color with a small head. Great aromas of bubble gum and bananas This has a nice fruity malty taste with hints of bananas peeking through. Nice bubble gum aftertaste. Not bad.

3.2
BeerInHeaven (454) - Brillion, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 23, 2014
pours a rich clear gold with a frothy white head. The coriander really comes through in the nose. Taste is crisp carbonation with the coriander dominating. fairly dry finish with a little bitter linger. Pretty good.
