HonkeyBra (3321) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - JUN 19, 2011
On draft at the 3F Brewpub. An interesting pour -- near startling, actually as it’s a very hazy whitish gold, thick white head sitting on top. Aroma is balanced between the Belgian yeast esters and fairly strong hops. Flavor is fruity, subtle, estery, with a strong hop presence of medium bitterness. There are notes of citus, banana, and pepper. Medium bodied, fairly carbonated, and refreshing. Before I know it I’ve finished my glass. I like this. It’s not 3F’s best or most unique beer, but it’s very good for a session beer.

Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - AUG 15, 2011
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a cloudy, orange-golden colored body with a finger-width, dense and creamy, white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing throughout. Aroma has a solid Belgian yeast and citrus hop mix. Some pineapple, orange, and tropical fruits with pines, florals, and a light bubble gum hint. Flavor is a bit more bitter. Fruity pines up front with some lemon grass, orange florals, and a light tropical fruit. Light bubble gum and a nice Belgian yeast balances with a light malt sweetness. Finishes dry with a moderate grassy bitterness and a nice fruity Belgian yeast that leaves a lengthy aftertaste. Medium body and a moderate carbonation. Overall, a solid Belgian pale ale. Well hopped and nicely balanced with solid, fruity Belgian yeast. Enjoyable beer.

On tap at the brewpub. Aroma: Lots of clove and yeast. Pinneaples and tropical fruits saved this one. Appearance: Yellow-orange pour, nice foamy ring. Flavors: Very fruity (mandarine and orange), citrus hops. The yeast is not too present unlike the aroma would suggest. Palate: Light carbonation and full body. Overall: Quite good.

Sort of a Belgian IPA sort of thing. Mine looks like a glass of yeast but I’ll blame that on the bar--default three on appearance. Very fruity hop character with a hint of ;elgian yeast. Real good.

Phone rate, $5 tulip at the brewpub. Clear golden amber with a two finger off-white head, good retention. The Belgian yeasty banana and pear, and fruity tropical citrus hops go very well together. Wow, very bright nose. Flavor is still yeasty and hoppy, though does add a pretty good amount of earthiness, which isn’t terrible, just a little detracting. Not much in the way of malt, just fruity hops and fruity yeast. Dry finish, earthy bitterness peaks at a 4. Light prickly carbonation with a light to medium body.smelled a little better, but still quite solid.

Reynolds314 (2278) - Connecticut, USA - AUG 28, 2011
Draft at brewpub poured cloudy golden into a tulip glass. Taste is grassy, citrus hops with a huge yeast profile. The flavors of the yeast are doughy, earthy and spicy but it muddles the hop flavor and doesnt work perfectly in my opinion. Tasty offering but not their best.

Hazy gold in color with a white head. Citra-pine hoppy aroma and taste. Notes: On tap at Three Floyds

Took a sip off of Honkeybra’s pint at the FFF Brewery. Wicked bizzah appearance. An opaque, light yellow-orange almost milky color. Surprisingly hoppy, with some banana ester making its way through, but it’s not off-putting. Nice mouthfeel and flavor. A cool-looking, and nice-tasting brew. Glad I tried it.

wedgie9 (1861) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 25, 2011
Tasted on 6/8/11 on draft at the Three Floyds Brewpub. Pours cloudy orange with a thick white head that slowly recedes to thin spotty lace. The nose is light floral hops, orange peel, and lightly underlying baking spices. The flavor is lightly bitter floral and orange peel hops with some spiciness and light malt as well. The body is light with lively carb and a long bitter and spicy hops finish.
