Draft @ Twenty Tap. Caramel malt and sweet orange-grapefruit aroma. Has that typical FFFs IPA aroma thing going on. Clear amber with a large white head. Sweet caramel malt, piney orange-grapefruit hops flavor. Medium body, soft carbonation. At first I didn’t get any Belgian character out of this one, but as it warmed a little Belgian yeast seemed to develop.

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.

Had this from draft at 3 Floyds brewpub. Orange pour with white head. FLoral tropical aroma. This wasn’t very Belgium tasting, more like a pale ale - good hops and fruity taste. Good beer.

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.

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.

holdenn (2078) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 12, 2009
On tap at the brewery. Poured a hazed orange yellow with a white head. Nose with tons of Belgian yeast, dough, spice, sugar, and citrus. Similar flavors that showcase the Belgian yeast, sugars, and spice. The citrus and doughy malts back those dominate notes up with some hints of floral hops. Super sweet and tough to drink. This is badly in need of more hops to balance out all of that sweetness. I thought I had tried this before and enjoyed, but I remember the hops being more dominate. This is tough to finish. In fact, I couldn’t.

On tap @ Three Floyd’s: Pours orange gold with a white head. Aroma, yeasty, citrus, lemon, pale malts. Flavor, bready, some banana, lemon, pale malts, and some yeasty notes. Interesting.

RAYBOY01 (2012) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 25, 2007
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.

tjthresh (1865) - Greenfield, Indiana, USA - APR 9, 2007
On tap at the brewpub. Amber with a sticky white head. Light refreshing aroma with some orange, floral and spice aromas. Really nice Belgian spicey yeast character. Clean bitterness. Light palate. A really nice beer to drink. Loved it.
