I just got into town and had on the 24th of July and my first stop was FFF. I had this on tap at the brewpub, it poured a orange to darkish red color with a nice white head.This is not my favorite style but still had to try with a spicy lemon flavor and a nice floral nose overall not bad but not one of my favorite FFF.CHEERS!

Draft on tap at the brewpub (Munster, IN). Decided to stop in the night before a trip to the Northwoods. Pours a well hazed orange hue, a bit darker and dulled in the middle with some healthier fiery glow as we move out to the edges and bottom. A frothy white head atop stays as a firm layer, soapy and lacing pretty well as a smaller film later on. Aromas offer a decent fruity feel, firm orange, rind and fruit, press on with some zippy citrus, gentle flaked wheat and bready malt, touch of dough, dry straw. Subtle spicy element is a bit mellow, allows the oranges to stand up and lead. Initial is big on citrus, rind and fruit, a bit tart hits the palate. Some dryness, mellow body hit as well. A bit bready, grainy, that citrus element, oily rind and zest hit. Middle is a bit bready, a touch of body, a firm citrusy presence sustains. Gentle sweetness tapers out, a touch more dry as we enter the backend. Gentle spiciness, faint coriander. I really think the citrus stands up and overruns here. Not that that is bad, itís tasty, zippy, and citrus driven. The last thing Iíd want is a coriander bomb. As it is, itís a bit of a one note beer.. even if that note is quite nice. Tasty. Pretty nice beer.

On tap at the brewpub : Pour is murky medium golden into this glass, revealing a modest off white head here that retains on the average side and has little lacing initial, which eventually dissipates. This one comes across as fairly traditional, revealing a light spicing, bread, lemon grass on the nose; the flavor profile provides a yeasty, spicy, lemon and grassy / floral hop presence with little to no true revealing of blood oranges by my estimation (the group agreed with this notion) - It wasnít served in the proper glass for the style, and while I thought that this was one of the better traditional feeling (minus the blood oranges) belgians ive had from FFF, I was hoping and praying for more orange presence that never showed up.

Sludgy dark orange. Large head, reducing, some lasting with lace. Medium sweet. Orange, wheat, yeast. Little zip. "Belgian-y". Very tasty and refreshing - gone before you know it.

Tap. Hazy orange pour, sticky lacing and a citrus nose. Flavor is definite bitter orange, wheat and a little bubblegum. Really damn nice, would drink the hell out of this during the summer months.

Had it on tap at 3Floyds brewery. Poured a hazy orange hue with an aroma that smelled like a Weiss crashed into a pilsner. The taste is a true Belgian with an infusion of citrus.
