TomDecapolis (4396) - Lawrence, Kansas, USA - APR 27, 2007
On tap at the FFF Brew Pub. Pours a lightly hazy golden amber with a bubbly/creamy off white lacing head. Aroma was very fruity, various citrus (orange), a bit of spiciness, Chouffe Yeast, Belgian spices, great fresh hopped Belgian ale. Flavor was a hopped up LaChouffe with American hops, orange, pine, light hop bitterness, peppery spiciness, Chouffe yeast and hints of banana.

nuplastikk (4138) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - APR 8, 2009
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.

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.

pantanap (3340) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 31, 2007
draft at 3F....nice appearance: deep, muddled apricot-like color with a think white head....aroma was citrussy for the most part....taste was very citrusy and refreshing. a lot of grapefruit and a little pine added to boot. it had a nice balance of yeast as well and had a slightly bitter finish in the end.

HonkeyBra (3116) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - APR 19, 2009
Draft at the brewpub. My girlfriend ordered it, took a few sips, then gave it to me. See kids, this is why you need a girlfriend. Orange amber pour with foamy head. Yeasty aroma of apples, candy sugar. Flavor is fruity, spicey, low hoppiness. Pretty good american take on a belgian pale.

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.

DrnkMcDermott (2748) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - MAR 17, 2007
Draft tulip at Floyds. Puffy Belgian head, which is starting to leave a lot of lace behinf already. Pils colored, but again with a bit of haze. Smell still shows the usual Floyds hop slap and a touch of yeast. Taste is hoppy at first, then firms up in citrus hops that slide in some citrus from the Belgian malt and yeast. Good Belgian pale ale taste, maybe thrown off style by Floyds addicition of alphas, but that’s to the advantage of us beer geeks.

OhioDad (2493) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - APR 29, 2007
On tap at the brewpub - Pours amber with a short white head. Aromas of orange, and a little spice, some yeast, and lots of fruity pear notes. Flavor is fruity with some orange and apricot there yeast, and some spice. Crisp and clean on the palate. This was pretty tasty.

On draft at the brewpub during DLD 09. Pours a caramel orange with a medium sized white head. Aroma of bananas, cloves and hops. Taste is much the same as the aroma.
