On tap at the Hop Leaf in Chicago. Pours a cloudy orange red with a thick white head. Aroma of lots of citrus hops and hop oils. Flavor of lots of citrus hops, some bready/wheaty malt with just a hint of yeast. A very hoppy Belgian ale and quite tasty too. 8/4/8/4/15 [3.9/5]

On tap at 3F... A milky dark honey, gold, off white head, good lace... Belgian yeast with lots of grassy hops, good combo... The taste is off from the nose, buttery, soapy, with a chemical grass hop finish, crisp and drinkable, just not in love

Draft at Three Floyds. Pours a hazy gold, some amber at the center. Sticky white head that persists. Nose is more Belgiany than Shark Pants. Notes of citrus and peach, but then lots of estery banana and phenolic pepper and clove. Really clashes. The yeast in suspension also lends some astringency as well. This isnít a horrible beer, just not particularly great. Again reflects the deficiency that Three Floyds has with Belgian styles, in my opinion. Meh.

Eben emael. On tap at 3f. Served in a snifter... Comes out with a mostly non-transparent orange caramel hue and topped with a fluffy vivid white head... Assertive aroma of centralized citrus and tropical fruit, somewhat sweeter through the middle, a lesser more tamed beastthan shark pants it seems. Belgian yeas still have a presence here.. Flavors are bittersweet for the most parts with a nice balance between sweet and hoppy. Citrusy fruity hop profile upfront then co- existing almost simultaneously with a thicker sweet sugar based malt. More enjoyable with a slightly more than average pithy bitter finish. Belgian yeast held in heck and not as prominent compared to some recent offerings that Iíve had locally in Chicago. Medium bodied, not too light with an adequate carbonation level. 8/4/7/4/14

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.

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.

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 isnít 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.

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.

UPDATED: AUG 28, 2011 On tap at FFF. Amber in color. Nice pine and citrus hops as well as mild candied fruit and yeast. Clean flavor profile of light fruits, Belgian candy, caramel malts and an even, well-rounded earthy-pine hop bitterness. Light residual bitterness and some dryness. Fairly well attenuated. Nice.
