kseecs16 (1182) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - APR 13, 2009
Draught at the brewpub. Orangey amber with a moderate foamy off-white head, nice lacing. Yeasty aroma with a faint hop finish. Rich malty clovey flavor. Finishes dry and mildly bitter. Fairly creamy medium bodied.

Draft into a tulip glass at the brewpub. orange brown color. Massive head which fades out after a minute, leaving the glass 1/5 empty. Sweet subdued aroma. Herby, sugary, yeasty tastes. Smooth, mellow carbonation. The yeast dominates a little too much in my opinion, lacks subtlety. Sugary, somewhat typical of US-Belgian beers.

sleestak (226) - Williamston, Michigan, USA - APR 4, 2009
Tulip at FFF. Poured a hazy yellow-amber with a towering foam head which left behind lovely Belgian lacing. Aroma was bright hops and bread dough. Taste exhibited the typical spiciness for the style, but with a stronger citrus hop bite. Seemed a little undercarbonated, but otherwise a very nice effort.

thedm (4887) - Fort Wayne, USA - FEB 1, 2008
This draft brew from the brew pub poured a small sized head of foamy finely sized white colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a hazy very softly carbonated orange brown colored body and a fair lacing. The weak aroma was bready and dough. The crisp mouth feel was tingly at the start and strongly tingly at the finish with a biting hoppy aftertaste. The balanced flavor contained notes of malt hops and dough. Delicious and one I would certainly buy again.

BabyJoe692 (109) - Pickerington, Ohio, USA - JAN 25, 2008
Draft. Pours dark coppery in color. A sweet malt and light hop aroma. A well balanced beer starting off sweet and finishing with hops.

SQNfan (591) - Wheaton, Illinois, USA - JAN 7, 2008
Drank at Three Floyd’s Brewing Company during the 2007 Dark Lord Day: Toward the end of a long day... it showed mainly hops but had some malt that balanced it out and added a touch of sweetness. While quite nice, I prefer the other "hoppy" beers from FFF.

On tap at brewpub. The hops give it a nice taste as compared to the typical Belgian. Nothing too crazy here- actually pretty close to style other than the aggressive hops.

3fourths (7799) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 4, 2008
Cloudy perfect peach color with a tall, billowy head. Vivid, crisp, hoppy honey and pine flavors with some creamed oranges and light Belgian yeast. Sweet grapefruit and mandarin orange notes round this one out, with a wonderfully fresh and juicy presence. Some light candy sugar noted alongside some creamy pine hops and semi-tart “buggy” yeast flavor. Good stuff.

chicagodri (1683) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 29, 2007
I’m not a huge fan of Belgians, but I enjoyed this one. An interesting beer with the hoppy flavor combining with the sweetness of the banana and cloves. Well done.

Stine (1453) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 13, 2007
On tap at the brewpub. Opaque, sunny orange pour. Pungent sweetness of pinapple and garlic cloves in the aroma; lit up by banana, vanilla and pears with a lot of lively spark and delicate sugar. Flavor brings some dense spice and phenols, seeming a bit warmer than it should or than it is. Quite estery and fairly dry; leafy hop character and white cracker yeast tones fill in the body with enough bready density and bitterness to create balance. Some ginger and pepper come through on the back of the nose in the mid-palate. Medium bodied in the mouth; syrupy and sticky to a surprising degree, leaving a cooling sweetness of vanilla in a creamy finish. Bitten with a bit more clove and dry grass at the very end. Lots of potential in this one, but it seems to wrap up as something quite less exciting than the sum of its seemingly well-chosen parts might project itself to be.
