Draft at the brewpub. After a long weekend of drinking, lunch here was more challenging than I would have wanted, so this was my only FFF beer of the day. Pours a hazy, dull orange color with a small white head that fades and leaves only a little ring. Notes of banana, clove, wheat, apricot, pears, honey, and a bit of tangerine citrus. Medium-bodied, with low carbonation and a fruity mouthfeel. Pretty straightforward hefeweizen; this weekend was eye-opening in that I found a few fairly straightforward beers from FFF for the first time ever. This brewery truly does it all.

Very cloudy/hazy pour. The nose is loaded with sweet banana, a bit of light clove and some lightly smoky phenolics. Very wheaty nose with a bit of soft spiciness. Fresh-tasting with a great balance of spice and malt. Yeast is quite expressive and there are some other light fruity aromatics on the back. I get just a touch of herbal hoppiness on the back of the palate as well. A zippy tartness toward the finish… it would be pretty easy to knock a few of these back.

Pours a hazy amber with a thin film of off-white head. Rich clove and spice aroma. A good, full flavored example with a rich sweetness and spicy character.

fear025 (213) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - JUL 6, 2010
Aroma:Smells heavily of clove and banana. Appearance:Cloudy pale orange, medium head retention, mild lacing. Taste:The flavor is like the nose, heavy clove and banana. The mildly sweet flavor lingers on pleasantly through the aftertaste. Palate:Nice carbonation, medium body. Overall:This is a spot on hefeweizen, very typical of the style. It’s a good example of how Three Floyds isn’t a one-trick hop pony!

SrSilliGose (3257) - pouring bus, New Brunswick, CANADA - JUN 13, 2010
tap at firkin. i was expecting some crazy hop twist or something strange from three floyds, but this turned out to be a pretty run of the mill hefeweizen. not a bad thing though. typical banana, pears, and clove notes. good, refreshing, tasty, light beer. happy it wasn’t too big and boozy. good, but not as great as some german versions of the beer.

Travlr (11825) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUN 4, 2010
Tap at Birrerria Paradiso in Georgetown. Paired with lemon goat cheese tart and pickled asparagus. Cloudy pale golden color, edge head. Aroma of light citrus. Taste is slightly sour and bready with a bit of grapefruit. Decent enough.

GT2 (8432) - San Diego County, California, USA - JUN 4, 2010
Tap at Birreria Paradiso. Pours a massively opaque light orange/yellow with a thin, creamy, dense, white head. Okay lace. This is a spot on hefeweizen and I can see why the German beer judges were not happy that FFF was able to put together a near clone of Weihenstephaner. Nose is full of overripe bananas and bubblegum. Taste is light-bodied, slightly tart, full of bananas and bubblegum. Moderate mulled spices/cloves. Spritzy on the palate to almost a bit too light. Very good for the style.

hombrepalo (1828) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 1, 2010
On tap at the parmount room,poured a cloudy yellow whith heavy lasting foam. Smell of corrinder, bannana, spices, and malts. Taste light and crisp. Similar taste to aroma. Expected more from a 3 floyds brew burt still a pretty good brew.

wedgie9 (1932) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 30, 2010
Tasted on draft at Whole Foods Lincoln Park. Pours cloudy orange with a thin white head that dissipates quickly. Nose of spices, wheat, and light banana. Flavors are citrus acidity, wheat, clove, and banana. The body is light with average carbonation, and the finish is medium featuring banana. Overall, this is an awesome hefe that I could session on all day.
