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.

Draft. Gold pour, big white head. Good retention/lace. Aroma of ester, grass, citrus. Taste is lightly bitter, citrus, tropical, estery. Palate is soft, dry, bitter finish.

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 (1540) - 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.

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.

On tap at the Indianapolis city market. Pours a hazy orange with a white head. Tropical hop taste. Great Belgian ale.

MoDog (927) - Griffith, Indiana, USA - MAY 27, 2007
On tap at the FFF brewpub. Pours a nice light golden/amber color into a tulip glass. Very little head. Aromas of hoppy citrus with a bit of pine and a little bit of bread. Flavors of grapefruit, yeast and a bit of orange. Upfront hops give it away that this is a FFF brew. Medium body with a nice fast sweet bitter finish. Maybe a little off base for this style, but it is a beer that I could find myself sitting down and drinking again.

bgburdman9 (857) - Kettering, Ohio, USA - APR 30, 2007
Nice piney centennial flavor and aroma with the pine coming through big time. Not really getting that many belgian notes at all in this. pretty good pale ale.
