This beer is certainly not for the faint hearted and most definitely packs a punch or two. Sponsored by Stewart Brewing, the recipe was created by James Hardacre, a keen and experienced home brewer, who succeeded in winning The Southerns home brew competition.
With an extensive array of six different hops, FWP is the hoppiest beer that Stewart Brewing have ever produced. Brewed with Oat Malt, Crystal Rye.

330ml can. Not sure about this one. The aroma is lots of hops and tinned peaches, slightly piny. The taste is medium sweet, light bitter, lots of hops and tinned peaches. Not sure why its classed as a Belgian ale. Its quite good, though a bit overly fruity.

imdownthepub (14333) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 2, 2017
Canned, 330ml at The White Horse, Leamington Spa, Warks. Clouded amber with white head. Quite a full, hoppy beer, a resinous character, drying, yeasty but not in a typical Belgian way, not sure where that description comes from. Dry bitterness in the close. Its fine if a little odd.

LazyPyro (986) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 28, 2017
500ml bottle. Pours a hazy copper colour with a small off-white head. Yeast, fruity aroma. Taste is fruity, malty, floral, resin, light sweet but very hoppy and very bitter, lingering bitter finish. Mouthfeel is oily, moderate carbonation.

330ml can (Jericho Tavern, Oxford)
Oh, man, the can just went plop plop in my glass. A horrible, offensive, shitty clumpy pour, yuck! Fruity hops in the aroma. Taste full of toffee and fleshy fruits. Medium palate. Very one-dimensional fruity hop beer, but at least it tastes fairly clean. No "belgian" aspect detected at all.

MrHangover (4410) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAR 15, 2017
Bottle. Pours a clear golden beer with a big bright white head on top. Aroma is bready, crispy malty, some woody hoppy notes. Flavor is quite bitter and moderately fruity. Fairly high level of carbonation, long, light bitter aftertaste. Decent, but not all too interesting.

BeerdedSkier (2) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 3, 2017 does not count
Surprisingly dark amber color, aroma of belgian yeast and fruity hops. Hard to say if its a belgian ale with strong hops or an ipa with a belgian twist but either way great combination of the hoppy ipa style with belgian flavors.
