Fresh bomber to a duvel tulip. Pours a hazy, golden yellow with a thin white head and decent lacing. Aroma is Belgian spices. Coriander, lemon, funky yeast, dough, and some pepper. Taste is lemons, dough, coriander, clove, some banana, bubblegum, and some bitter citrus hops. Mouthfeel is thin to medium and easy to drink. Good Belgian pale.

Bottle. Deep golden body. Off-white, frothy head, mostly lasting. Aroma of citrus, lemon, orange peel, toasted grain, bread, Belgian yeast. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Clean with citrus taste combined with light spiciness. A bit hot in the finish.

Look - Hazy. Bright copper. Head is thick and white. Lacing doesn’t stick around long. Smell - Bread/biscuit. Belgian. A little spice to it. Taste - Classic wheat/Belgian taste up front. Slight dank hop taste then finishes to spicy Belgian. Feel - I like the feel of this compared to other wheats/Belgians. It is smooth. Not too carbonated. It finishes well. Overall - I would rather have a Rich Life over this. Almost all of the classic Three Floyds dankness is masked. Not a bad beer by any means.

Patrickctenchi (4817) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - APR 9, 2015
Bottle: Cloudy amber-orange-brown with a small off-white head. Light caramel, yeast, lemon scent. Taste is sweet....lemony, a little floral and funky yeastiness. Slightly floral/herbal/orange-peel bitter. Drinks incredibly lightly for the ABV. Really nice.

shrubber85 (8998) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - APR 2, 2015
Bottle. Musty/yeasty lemon peel and malt aroma. Golden yellow with moderate off-white head. Lightly sweet lemon malt, yeast, and lemon/orange peel flavor. Body on the lighter side. A very pleasant, easy drinking beer.

jaymobrown (1734) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 20, 2015
Very hoppy nose but balanced with some grapefruit, white pepper and alcohol notes. The flavor was pretty hop forward with some more alcohol and even bread/rye flavors. Long finish with syrupy texture.

Vir4030 (568) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 14, 2015
Yours a clear light orange with a thick bublly head. Aroma is sweet alcohol with a touch of grapes and apple. Flavor is creamy, delicious, sweet alcoholic apples and grapes. There’s a bit of a winey alcohol flavor, maybe the grapes.

sigh_borg (90) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 14, 2015
Aroma is spicy (definitely coriander), slightly sour and fruity, with very mild hops in the background. Mouthfeel is medium bodied and well carbonated. Lingers on the palate in a nice way. Good balance of sweet, sour and growing bitterness at the finish. An enjoyable alcohol burn going down. Pretty mild over all. Lacks the funky yeast that I look for in a Belgian, though, so wouldn’t seek this out again. In terms of taste, comes across more of as Belgian IPA than a Belgian Strong Ale.
