This beer has a pretty cool name, makes me think of the one line from the Bloodhound Gang song You're Pretty When I'm Drunk but anyway, this beer pours out as a golden yellow color with a fluffy white head. The smell has an average Belgian aroma to it. The taste has a decent bitterness to it. The mouthfeel is a little on the lighter side. The overall on this beer is that it's an average beer but not something I'd rave about.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A - Pours clear orange/brown with almost three fingers of off-white head. Head has excellent retention and leaves some nice lacing.

S - Coriander initially dominates the aroma. Once my nose adjusts to all the coriander, some belgian yeast and citrus come through. Nice, but a little heavy on the coriander.

T - The taste is similarly dominated by coriander, at the expense of the other flavors. Eventually some Beligian yeast, banana and juicy citrus come through, with some pepper as well. Finish has a spicy dryness. Again, pretty good, but too much coriander.

M - Medium mouthfeel that finishes quite dry.

O - An interesting Belgian pale ale with heavy witbier spicing. Cutting back on the spicing would help this one out, but it is still pretty enjoyable.

A-Cloudy dirty orange/amber hue, with very little white head

S-Strongest notes of bubblegum that I have ever seen this side of Hubba Bubba.

T-The bubblegum fruity (banana) yeast is a little much, hops are definitely apparent. This is an interesting taste-definitely unique. Fun to drink.

M-Medium bodied, average carbonation, hops are a bit astringent.

D-hoppiness limits drinkability for me. Nice change of pace for 1.

O-Interesting in that it tastes like a Hefe-Weisse meets a Belgian Pale Ale-worth a taste-a decent beer from Furthermore.

Bottle courtesy of BeerFMAndy, a man who never disappoints. Served in a tulip.

Pours a bright peach color with a really nice two-finger white head. Good lacing as it goes down and a thin collar stays along for the ride. The nose brings some light bready malt as well as a light floral aroma and a bit of earth and spice. Flavor has mild malt sweetness plus a bit of a hop presence. Yeast kicks in with some mild spice toward the finish. Really light, yet creamy, mouthfeel that is the highlight of the beer for me. Nicely done. Thanks again, Andy.

12oz bottle courtesy of AdamGarcia.

Pours a hazy golden orange with a fluffy white head that recedes to a small collar and swirl on top with little lacing.

The aroma is full of sugary sweet apples and pears with a subtle bit of bubble gum wheat in the nose and some lemony citrus hops. There is some spicy yeast floating around as well.

The taste has the same dominant fruity sweetness with an initial orange citrus kick up front. The light banana and bubble gum sweetness is present but swept away by a dry spicy finish. Still, it's a sweet flavor overall.

The mouthfeel is moderately carbonated but still a bit slick and sugary sweet. It seemed to lack a bit in terms of body though.

It's a cross between a hefe, an IPA and a Belgian pale and it's definitely drinkable though probably lacking the heft to be a serious Belgian pale.

I consumed three bottles the other day and after following them up with just 4 Miller Lites I found myself hopelessly inebriated. This made me question this beer’s strength so a few days later I had two more bottles followed by a few brews from Sand Creek and Viking. Same result. On Saturday I had just one bottle, along with several brews at the Great Dane and Angelic. Once again, I got drunk. That might sound predictable, but I can usually drink a hell of a lot of Dane beer and a case of Miller Lite before feeling the kind of effects I felt after three Fatty Boombalatties. Either this beer is hella strong or it contains herbs that cause some sort of histamine reaction (wouldn’t be the first time) that mess me up.

Appearance: The Old Fashioned in Madison has a terrible habit of pouring all their wonderful craft beers into frosted glasses. These aren’t normal frosted glasses mind you. They are uber frosted, straight out of an ice core in Antarctica, recently touched by the Ice Man of X-men fame, or frozen when a glassware truck collided with a liquid nitrogen truck on an LA freeway, frosted. What I’m saying is that these glasses are cold.

That being the case I started asking for an unfrosted glass but that got me looks as if I were some sort of beer geek/snob (I am, but I don’t want normal people to think that). Then I discovered that I could order a 7 oz tapper glass, that it wouldn’t be frosted, and that I wouldn’t get the snob look. So…Poured into a 7 oz tapper, the first six ounces is completely transparent brilliant light copper with bountiful carbonation streams and a healthy white head. The second six ounces is perpetually cloudy, very yeasty, light yellow brown with a healthy white head. The entire 12 oz together looks like one would expect a blend to look. At any rate, this is a very yeasty, unfiltered beer.

Aroma: Very nice. Moderate Belgian yeasty banana nose with plenty of other light fruit and some tropical character. Some esters present. Lots of hops, grassy and citric. Wild wit like spice profile.

Taste/Mouthfeel: Spicy and yeasty. Some banana, loads of pepper and a generally very spicy. Powdery and boozy texture form the yeast. Aggressive, prickling carbonation. Lots of fruit flavor and some front yard herbal/grassiness. Semi-cloying front but dry, bitter, very hoppy finish.

Drinkability: This is a little intense, very yeasty, somewhat boozy, and definitely hoppy. It’s no balanced work of art. That’s for sure but it is a complex and exciting beer. I would think that age would help mellow it in a good way. At any rate, it is very strong and gives a great buzz.

Appears a clouded golden orange apricot tone with a large white head, lacing is fine and intricate. Aroma has a mix of citrus/clove/anise and American hops. Also some tropical fruits mango/pineapple character going on in there. Flavor blends a heavily spiced wit with a big Belgian golden ale, over ripened banana and pineapple juice with bitter citrus pith accented hops an heavy with coriander and a touch of anise. Pretty intense experience I can feel and taste the booze I would guess even a bit higher than the seven percent it actually is. Mouthfeel is a bit cloying at times between the layers of spices that stick to the palate between sips and the aggressive hop profile, it's just a bit sticky on the palate with some residual sugars. Carbonation is ample no complaints on that but those spices make me want to brush my teeth. Drinkability overall is decent a strong aggressive interesting hybrid ale another uniquely American take on a classic style, gotta love our no rules attitude when it comes to brewing.

Probably not a true Belgian, but I'm choosing to think of this as creativity rather than inadequacy. The color is an intriguing translucent apricot, with a nice off-white head. A stream of fine bubbles rises throughout the time the beer is in the glass. It's "very drinkable for the style," which I put in quotes only because it's getting to be a common comment from me -- but usually it's a negative, and here I find it to be a plus. Some nice spice and fruit notes -- I almost think there's some apricot to the taste, too, unless that's just the power of suggestion. A clean, lightly hoppy finish. All in all, I'm a little surprised to like this beer as much as I did, but it does have a nice balance of interesting flavors and drinkability.

Furthermore, Fatty Boombalatty. A Belgian style ale.

Appearance: A dark golden/light copper body supported by a small, quickly diminishing head. Lacing does not really occur.

Smell: Floral, sweet and fruity.

Taste: Sweet malt and cream, reminiscent of cotton candy in its sweetness. Many tasters detect bubblegum. Some herbal hop bitters try to stand up to the sweet but fall flat. Belgian candi sugar and a small porportion of hops. A decent effort.

Mouthfeel: Medium to full bodied.

Drinkability: An average American Belgian style ale. Worth the try.

Decanted from a bottle into a stemmed tulip.

Appearance is a brilliant deep orange. In direct light it seems like it wants to be yellow but remains muted and slightly hazy. Finger of head forms and is only shortly maintained until fading away.

Smells of light candy and spice sweetness with some faint citrus (lemon, lime) undertones. Drinks in a similar fashion with the candy and citrus giving way to some carbonation and light hop bitterness. In many ways it drinks like a true Belgian though it resembles more of an American IPA. The carbonation and dry finish help some of the candy and hop flavors pop on the tongue.

I think this is one of the better American interpretations of a Belgian style ale. It drinks closer to those than some of the usual "belgian style" ales that come more like lagers or weak ales than anything else. Low ABV's (well, relatively) keep this drinkable though some may find it too carbonated.
