Good
Notes: A decidedly light hearted take on a European classic. An extra pale body and subtle bitterness set the tone letting the speciality Belgian yeast shine, while Curacao Orange and Coriander add fruity, spicy notes. True to form we decided to clown around with sack loads of our favourite US hops in the hop back and in cold conditioning. The result is a beer to lift the spirits and make you smile, not one for the purists maybe but whoever took a Clown seriously?

Pours pale amber/orange with a large head.
Nose shows overt peppery, herbal and spicy hops along with strong orange peel notes. Some doughy wheat underneath works well as a base.
Flavours include some light malt sweetness before orange peel and herbal, spicy hops come rolling through by the truckload, leading to an assertively bitter finish.

A clouded brass colored brew, a small white head, goos lacing and good curtains.

Smelling chemical, fruit esters, soap, some lemon soda.

Staring with sweet white bread, then spices and fruits, like a bubblegum with coriander.

Little carbonation, a soft and slightly sticky texture, a medium body and smooth finish.

Very hard to capture, could be ok instead of rosé or cider. But not really my kind of beer. Could be juice for clowns.

A: Pours a slightly cloudy amber beer into the glass. Creamy, off-white head with uneven sized bubbles. Heavy lacings.

S: Smells citrus, strawberries and biscuit malts.

T: Starts with strawberries, citrus and dry grassy tones. Ends with even more grassy tones.

M: Medium body. Medium carbonation.
