COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
For our new Fat Tire & Friends Collabeeration Pack, we teamed up with Allagash Brewing from Portland, Maine.

Who wants the funk? Fat Tire wants the funk. Our New England friends at Allagash brought it, taking Fat Tire back to its Belgian roots with a De Dolle house Belgian yeast strain that adds classic pear, banana and spice to Fat Tire’s malty goodness. They then bottle-conditioned the beer with Brettanomyces Allagagensis for a spicy finish. Get your funk on.

Arayaga2 (2207) - portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 15, 2016
Slight gusher, mayhaps the brett. Amber, with speckled white head. Aroma of pears. Banana and grain in taste, with mild astringency into the finish. $25 mixed case

RSRIZZO (2009) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - AUG 6, 2017
12oz bottle (courtesy of Headbanger) poured into a Snifter at 42°. Color is golden with very high carbonation, I couldn’t get half the bottle poured before the big fluffy head grew out over the top of my glass. Aroma is bad, old band-aid and barnyard. It has a medium body with a somewhat smooth and fizzy mouth feel. Flavor is not much better than the aroma, same thing but the barn is a touch lighter. Aftertaste is sour and tart with that band-aid thing jumping out for a moment then falling away. Overall its not as offensive as some that I’ve had but this is still too much of the funk to be good.

Big foamy head over slightly hazy amber. Mildly tart, light fruits, a bit of spice. Not bad.

Slightly cloudy pale golden color with a pillowy white head of foam. Wild funky yeast character; banana-ish, hay, light pepper, and some floral influence.

2.3
FROTHINGSLOSH (7929) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 5, 2017
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a bright copper color with an enormous foamy orange-white head that towered over the glass, lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was tart, chalky and somewhat fruity. The flavor was dry, tart, perfumey and chalky. Light body and massively overcarbonated. Long finish. Not good at all.

Patrickctenchi (6660) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - JAN 29, 2017
Bottle: Slightly hazed amber with a huge beige head. Pear, banana, grain scent. Taste is light barnyard funk, fruits..... Very soft and pleasant.

3.6
BillWyce (1092) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 13, 2017
Pours clear amber color with a soapy, 3-finger white head. Mild aroma with notes of spice and pear, as well as some Brett funk. Medium body with a touch of oil. Dry finish. Nutty malt flavor mixed with juicy pear. Some yeast funk and a touch of spice at the back. A touch of banana ester as it warms.

3.7
oobawa (1576) - Tennessee, USA - DEC 30, 2016
Nice Fat Tire remix, adding some hefe-style complexity to the beer’s usual middle-of-the-road blandness. Subtle but pleasing bananaclove sweetness brings out a more pronounced bitterness on the back end, and the barnyard funk in the fade takes the brew in a fascinating direction. Amazing how hanging out with more distinguished friends can improve your profile.

3.6
Travlr (25496) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - DEC 29, 2016
Draft. Slightly hazy amber color, big fluffy off white head. Aroma of dust, banana, white pepper. Taste is fruity with mild funk. Tasty.
