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!

12 oz bottle. Pours a slightly hazy yellow gold body with virtually no head at all. The nose is really nice: tropical fruits, fresh delicate hops, a subtle coriander note, light yeast, and indeed a touch of bubblegum. The bright hops and coriander grab you right away, yielding a heavy perfume like flavor that while interesting, isn’t especially great. A heavy dose of sweetness and tropical fruits follows, but it does dry out a bit on the back end with the help of the fizzy effervescent carbonation. Rather heavy on the tongue for a Belgian Ale, but the carbonation does help. Overall a pretty interesting beer, perhaps not the greatest, but I did like it.

Esters, wheat and other grain malts. Slightly hazy gold, small, creamy, white head. Medium sweet. More citrus, orange, esters, soft carbonation, medium bodied. Decent Witbier, maybe a touch sweet. Keg at The Old Fashioned, Madison, WI.

This poured a dark amber color with a beige head. Aroma was of belgian spices, slighty roasted, and yeast. Flavor was spicey, some darker candy sugar, and some medium frutiness as well. Pretty drinkable.

12 oz bottle from tytoanderso, Thanks Tyler. Pours a hazy brownish orange with a large frothy foamy white head that leaves a nice lasting small layer. Aroma of white pepper, yeast, dough, bubble gum, banana peel, rotting oranges. Medium body that with light carbonation and finishes with only a touch of dryness. Flavor of dough, cereal, under ripe tropical fruits, banana and yeast. Solid beer, great name, ugly label.

nuplastikk (6514) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 26, 2009
12oz bottle. Hazy orange-tan color with a thin white head. Crisp herbal yeasty aroma, some decided sweetness. Very interesting and unique beer, par for the Furthermore course. In some ways like a Double White, with a thick malty sweetness behind the vanilla-orange peel edges. I suppose the term "bubblegum" will have to suffice in describing the sweet, herbal yeasty flavors. The spicy/herbal attributes of the beer come off pretty strong. Ginger, coriander, cinnamon..you name it. Complex and unique.

JK (6342) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - JUN 8, 2007
Furthermore’s second best beer. Aroma of a barnyard, very Belgian in character. Flavor has lemon and lots of hops blended with spices. Refreshing and easy to drink. Aroma leads the drinker to believe it might even be sour but it doesn’t get there.

3.4
JPDIPSO (6298) - Wauwatosa, USA - MAY 19, 2007
Hazy to cloudy amber color with a diminished off-white head. Bread dough, honey, orange peel, banana and bubblegum. Certainly a full belgian ester/phenol aroma. More a strong, fruity wit aroma. A light honey flavor start with some pale malt and tropical fruit mixed in. A background of wheat and oat. Quite full in feel, nearly too full, but still enough zip to keep it lively. Light fruit seem to come out more at it lingers in the glass, with raisins and currants. A decent standard Belgian ale. Certainly beats paying $3 for something similar and less fresh.
