3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Big thanks to bauermj for this one! Pours a soft golden blonde with two fingers of sticky white head. Nose is spicy/peppery and balanced by an overripe citrus aroma. Lightly alcoholic in the nose and flavor. Overripe citrus flesh and cracked pepper in the flavor. A nice interpretation of the style, could have been a point or two lower in abv. Wouldn’t have missed that.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle... Hazy golden pour with no head. The bouquet is a medley of citrus fruits and fuzzy stone fruits. Medium-bodied with feather-soft carbonation. The flavor is malty with great hop flavor, but diminutive hop bitterness. Leans far onto the sweet side of balance in both the flavor and finish. Bottle courtesy of BBB63!

Delicious. Not as assertively hopped as most 3Fs beers, but it pairs very well with the spice in this one. A fair amount of sweetness and a rich lingering bread taste with a nearly silky texture. Enjoyed this with a batch of RIBS! Num Num

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
22 oz. bottle shared by Tmoney99- thanks again, Tom! Pours a clear gold with a small white head- looks crystal clear for a Belgian. Notes of pale, sweet, and bready malts, sweetened cereal, grass, citrus fruits, and plenty of florals. Some phenolic character, as well. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a bitter mouthfeel that lingers. I don’t know how else to describe it other than a big Belgian ale was attempted to be shoved into a light pale ale.

Bomber to taster (shared by Tmoney99). Looks solid; a transparent golden orange with white lacing. Smells of spice and yeast. Tastes like it smells, only more robust, with a nice mouthfeel. Enjoyable.
