look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 2

Pours a hazy orange, some foam, sticks around for a bit.

Smell is barely there, possibly some wheat somewhere.

Big bubblegum in the taste, almost too much. Cloying, then a long lingering bitterness in the aftertaste. Not so good. Over the top in an aggressive way, sweet and yeasty, no attempt at balance here.

Hard to finish a 12 oz., glad I only had a single.

12 ounce bottle from a six pack.

A- golden hue with an unfiltered look, heavy on the particles,

S- somewhat of a burnt smell to it,

T- somewhat of a charcoal-like flavor, emphasis on hops, some clove/ginger

M- smooth with a touch of the unfiltered wheat,

D- an OK belgian, definitely better ones out there

The Furthermore website says that they were going for a big Belgian Wit beer. I tried brewing a similar beer recently and feel that it this beer doesn't quite make it just like mine didn't. The big coriander flavor and aroma really doesn't seem to work.

Appearance is cloudy orange.

The smell is very strongly perfume. It reminded me of the strong odor of a detergent. Luckily it faded away with the head.

The taste is okay. For me the coriander is overwhelming. It makes it taste grassy and dull at the same time. I can't really explain it; it's like the wheat and coriander combine in a way that just isn't pleasant to me.

They brew I made needed less coriander, less wheat and more citrus. When I add a squeeze of lemon, it is better. This beer has the detergent like perfume odor and taste too. Just not for me I guess.

12oz bottle split with oglmcdgl, thanks for the shot. Poured in some small glasses at the compound.

Boombalatty has a apricot orange color and a weak head that reached an inch before lowering into nothing. No lace from this one. This pretty much smells like orange jolly ranchers mixed with some fruity yeast. Tastes of oranges apricots and some cereal like tastes. Hops are not really in the picture. The feel is between light and medium with some carb, nothing to exciting, goes down smooth but kinda dead. I could see going for one of these in the summer, but would not seek it out on the regular.

Pours a hazy pale orange-ish color with an off white head. In the aroma, orange citrus, coriander, and a nice alcohol presence. In the taste, coriander, orange juice citrus, a small alcohol note and somewhat peppery. A smooth and a medium bodied moouthfeel, with a dry spice with a small citrus in the aftertaste. A bit boozy and peppery, and somewhat all over the place in the taste.

12 oz. bottle, with no apparent bottled on date present. No abv listed on the label either, but by the looks of things, this beer is contract brewed by the Milwaukee Brewing Co., for Furthermore Beer. Whatever. I got this bottle as part of a mixed six pack at the local beer store.

Poured into a clear balloon snifter.

A - Pours a nice bright orange colored body with three fingers of big bubbly off-white head with pretty underwhelming retention, especially given the style. Some nice fat streaks of lacing on the glass. Looks alright.

S - Smell is of earthy musty grains, funky yeast, alcohol fumes, brown bread, some nuttiness, and some mild banana / clove spice.

T - Taste is of bready malt, grains / grass / earth, slight hint of sticky caramel, booze heat, brettanomyces, cloves, light banana, & some kind of syrupy sweetness.

M - Feel is sticky, bready, and dry with some mild alcohol fumes on the finish. Medium bodied with high, bloating carbonation.

Overall, I'd say it was a drinkable endeavor, but certainly not something I would want for repeat drinking. It grew on me as I drank it, but I guess there was a bit too much sweetness, and too much carbonation for me to find enjoyable. In all, it was alright.

A 12 oz bottle from maximum12. Thanks Duane.

A: The ale is rather vigorous on pour, requiring two separate attempts to fill my glass. A finger and a half of head blanketed the glass and is lightly lacing. The ale itself is a hazy amber color, nearly equal parts orange and brown with just slightly more brown.

S: Candi sugars peep through, presenting themselves as the signature aspect of the nose. There isn't much more to speak of here, despite several searches.

T: Interesting. The flavor releases bigger flavors that I'd expect from a much stronger version. The pale candi sugars are still here, adding a sugary sweetness but they are matched with some anise and pepper. A Belgian yeast strain adds a chalky finish. The flavors make this one seem bigger than it actually is.

M: The ale is flat at times, losing some of the range of flavor. The prospect of a larger flavor profile is nice but doesn't always come through.

D: The alcohol is well-hidden amongst the Belgian spices but that is not enough to salvage a spotty flavor.
