On tap at the pub. Served in a tulip. Pours a hazy orange yellow with a creamy head that shrinks slowly and leaves heavy lacing. Aroma is apricot, pepper, and funk. Taste is apricot, bread, grapefruit, Belgian yeast, and more. Medium mouthfeel. I hope this becomes a regular beer.

holdenn (2110) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 8, 2012
In a tulip glass at the pub. Hazed orange with a fluffy beige head. Citrus dough and pine hops with some belgian yeast that's rich and inviting. Some times Belgians like this can have a young or overpowering yeast flavor. But this works really well. The doughy yeast grass/herb hops with lemon. Fresh tasty. Goes down well 7/4/8/4/15 ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tap at FFF. Unfiltered glowing orange-tan. Massive steady foamy head. Big and thick and sugary. This is nice, but maybe not quite up to FFF standards. Sort of like Westmalle Tripel(?) Mango smoked tobacco, Candy sugar, but way more depth than most Tripels. A pinch unrefined and sugary, but still pretty great.

Draft on tap at the brewpub (Munster, IN). Another new FFF rate.. They are pumpin’ these bad boys our Pre-DLD. Pours a rich well hazed golden hue, dulled, touches of glow in the body. A rich cakey white head sits atop, firm lacing and rich caking. Aromas are blasts of lemony hops and grass, florals and mellow Belgian yeasty spice mix, touches of apple and banana esters linger in. Firm dominant hopping steers the course here with lots of lemon and secondary grapefruit. Initial is medium bodied, a touch lighter with firm bitter hopping. Florals and grass, citrusy hops work well, middle shows some gentle Belgian influence, touches of yeast and spice, fruity esters. Touches of heat, sweetness, backend gets much more dry and bitter, lingering fruit, touches of tangerine, apple, and grapefruit. Lemons, mellow fruity esters, a faint waft of candy floss. An Imperialized version of Hyena it seems and it plays the part, with better hop character that plays more of the focus. Pretty nice, ABV is fairly well integrated, hop forward but the Belgian element still comes through. Solid.

HonkeyBra (4036) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - APR 14, 2012
Draft at the brew pub. Gazed light orange pour with thick, medium white head. Aroma of pineapple and orange peel. Mild tropical fruit notes. Flavor is fairly bitter, light Belgian candi sweetness surrounding the planned hop assault. It doesn’t really take the form of most double ipa/ trippels I’ve encountered. I prefer the focus on the hop flavors rather than the yeast strain. Lots of nice citrus and pine flavors. Medium bodied, soft carbonation. A lovely beer to enjoy on a dreary April afternoon.

Draft, served in a tulip at Dash In in Fort Wayne, IN. My first few sips were actually pretty disappointing, but it opened up nicely after about 5 minutes. The aroma is sweet and apricot-y, not overbearing in the sugars. There's just the perfect touch of funky yeast flavor in the finish and a lingering heat from the alcohol (9%). Very good!
