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!

September 10, 2010 - 12oz bottle shared by SwoopJones with me and Rudolf. Pineapple juice -like murky orange-yellow with an average diminishing white head. An interesting aroma mashing up moderate alcohol, sweet candi bubblegum/banana, and lots of grassy bitterness, but if you take a good honking sniff of it, theres a weird sweaty vintage gym shoe funk to it too, which detracts a bit. Taste is "sweaty" but thats yeast and pungent hoppiness, and fair bit of alcohol; background fruit-sweet malt - better than the aroma, no pongy footwear detected. Thick mouthfeel, astringent and decently carbonated; the malt fades fast and leaves a pungent back of palate/tongue acidic bitter aftertaste.

Bottle courtesy of tytoanderso. Pours copper with a thin white head. Smells of roses, sweet sugar, flowers. Tastes of sugar, vanilla, sweet malt, bananas. Unusual.

On tap at The Old Fashioned in Madison. Comes a cloudy golden orange with a small white head. Aroma of yeast, caramel, citrus, and spice. Taste is yeast, lemon, coriander, caramel, and grain. Pretty good.

( 12oz bottle thanks to BA Ktown67 in person) A mildly aggressive pour yields a perfect 2 finger head which recedes slowly. This beer laces very nice on the glass. The color is a dark yellow with tones of orange and lots of bubbles creeping up the side of the glass. Smells like leather up front, but then yields to sour fruits. There is also pepper in the nose. Taste of sour apple, sweet and sour pear, white wine-style grapes but no alcoholic presence whatsoever. There is also a nice balance of pepperiness that I generally only find in the best Belgians. Sweet, spicy, and refreshing. This beer was perfectly carbonated, nice and creamy to drink, and oily with an almost perfect weight to its body. Matched the style extremely well.

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.

JPDIPSO (6093) - 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.

Furthermores 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 doesnt get there.

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.

Skyview (5866) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JUN 2, 2007
Picked up a single 12-oz bottle from Bobs McFarland Liquors in McFarland, WI. Pours a cloudy light caramel amber brew with a thick fizzy off-white head. Aroma of light wheat, yeast and a touch of orange peel. Other aroma picked up were banana esters and herbal hops. Taste is highly carbonated, yeasty dry palate and medium bodied. Finish is dry and smooth. An unusual name for a Begian Ale and a good light style Belgain at best.
