Well, Belgians are not a favorite of mine but 3F hops them in a way to make them enjoyable for me. Cloudy amber body and an ample off-white head. Aroma holds notes of sweet fruits and citrus hops, some spice, and characteristic Belgian yeast. Nice mouthfeel. Smooth. The flavor was balanced with the sweetness and bitterness juxtaposing nicely.

I havn’t anything else to compare this to in this style. It did seem very spicy. No alcohol came thru, which is good. Had an interesting sweetness to it. Kind of like a belgian triple. Dark copper color.

Pretty coppery pour. Presents a spicy/yeasty nose...fruity and pungent. The flavors are sweet roasted malts, light Belgian spiciness, fruity yeast and fairly robust herbal/earthy hop bite. Pretty interesting.

SpringsLicker (3046) - Tennessee, USA - AUG 1, 2007
On tap at the brewery Dark Lord Weekend. A long-lasting creamy white head crowns this slightly cloudy, medium gold brew. Fragrant aroma, flowery, spicy, herbal. Some lavender. The flavor is slightly sweet with a flowery finish. Quite different. Nice.

bager (2121) - Copenhagen N, DENMARK - JUN 5, 2007
On tap at the brewpub. Golden amber coloured with a medium sized head. Nice balanced although a bit too sweet for me. Notes of malt, hops, spices, cloves, banana, citrus and candied sugar.

My first 3F Belgian, and I found it tasty. It was everything I expected after reading the description. tasted some nice clovey bananas, as well as American character. Nice.

decaturstevo (4665) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - JUN 1, 2007
At 3F’s. A light yeasty aroma that reeks of Belgian ale. A slightly golden amber pour with excellent lacing. The expected clovish/corriander flavor followed by fruit and seal with the citrus hops that lead to the excellent bitter finish. Good carbonation and good mouthfeel. A full textured palate. A very fine offering.

HogTownHarry (5984) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - JUN 1, 2007
Draught. At the brewpub. Hazy light orange-amber with an average white drool of head. Decent sweet caramel malt aroma, mild tart fruit acidity, and pungent dry herbal hops and dry lightly spicy yeast. The taste is very hoppy, some light tart fruit, slightly boozy, I detected something almost like rye bread in there, the hops ultimately seemed a little green and grassy. Sticky, surprisingly thick body, good dry astringency and carbonation, with a surprisingly long sharply bitter and slightly acid finish. Very nice - definitely a hop/Belgian ale hybrid, slightly reminiscent of the Chouffe Houblon.

Chicago Trip. Saturday 16:30+. Hoppy Belgian yeast aroma. Nice almost tripple flavour. Candy sugary and some hops.
