3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle received in trade from MeadMe, thanks for the opportunity. Shared with BFD at The Mohers house. Hazy medium gold with a smallish quickly dissipating head. Smells of leather oak vanilla caramel and a bit of funk. The flavor follows the aroma. Not what I expected and a bit out there with flavors. It grew on me as I sampled it, but its not really my cup of tea.

2.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. This is my first FFF beer. Nice aroma of maple, with a little hint of apple. The beer is very strange tasting. Lots of maple, sour bite, and belgian yeast are apparent. I donít know if I like these flavors together like this. Nice orange pour with white head.

3.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Fruity and tart. A bit too much. A dessert beer. And I tend to favor sweet beers but this one is just over the top. Had on tap at the FFF brewpub.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Tap. Dark brown/orange pour, a little lacing and an aroma of very boozy plums. Flavor is also syrupy sweet plums, noticeable alcohol and finished very hot. Although almost over the top alcohol, I still liked this quite a bit.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A - Amber orange hue with light white head.
S - Oak, tart aroma, agree w/ previous reviewer (magic marker odor).
T - Taste of a cider, oak, caramel.
M - Begins heavy, light finish, definitely some tartness (to be expected)
O - Swing, and a miss! Not sure what the intent was with this one. Guess if youíve spent the time aging it in barrels, youíre probably not going to wash it down the drain. Instead ~ wait until Dark Lord day and dump the inventory! Iíve always been a fan of 3F, but this one was a fail.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle thanks to trade with joromiller! Pours a hazy copper from the yellow waxed bomber with fluffy cream colored head that leaves good lacing. Aroma of sour Belgian yeast, dark fruits, esters of pepper, but mostly sour fruits. Taste is both sweet and sour notes, nice streets from the yeast and malts, sour dark fruit and pepper, but overlying bourbon oak sweetness, vanilla. Complex with a lingering sour character, in a wonderful way. At first I thought I was duped, but this deserves a much better rating.
