Ughsmash (7173) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 12, 2012
On tap. Poured cloudy peach with a creamy beige head. The aroma picked up orange, pineapple, and apricot over pale malts.. a lot of citrus going on. The flavor found juicy apricot, orange, and pineapple bitterness over generic pale malts.. even more fruity toward the back.. became sweet and cloying on the finish. Fresh and bitter on the palate, but heavy sweetness dug in and took over toward the back.. some good stuff in there, but it didnít transition well through the palate.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours a cloudy peachy orange with a white head that dissipates to the edges and laces slightly. Aroma has sweet grains, flora and light fruit with a nice backing yeast note. Flavor has a good amount of sweet fruit with some backing citrus and a strong sweet grain backbone. Quite heavy.

Draft on tap at Tap House Grill (Plainfield, IL). Another new Belgian beer from FFF, which I hear most of which made itís way into Chardonnay barrels. Kinda surprised that FFF put out 3 new beers and I tried them all at 3 different places, none of which were the brewpub. Pours a darker amber hue, some dark gold and firm orange glow, yet strikingly darker than anticipated. A frothy offwhite head sits atop, a firm layer that laces ok overall. Aromas are kisses of lemon rind, bready and crisp malts, a touch of biscuit and mellow toast. The biscuits dance in, being notable especially farther into the brew. Gentle touches of florals, grass, a mild yeasty spice. More citrusy lemon and orange rind come into focus, some mellow yet crisp sweetness, not venturing into a sweeter feel as expected. Dry hopping and gentle yeast spice, touch of apple. Initial is medium bodied a bit mellow up front, moving into citrus rind and gentle spice. A mellow crisp sweetness throws touches of banana, apple, and bread dough. Crisp and lighter, the sweetness comes in smaller spurts, as the finish gets a bit more rind and dry earthy and citrus hops. Overall, more on board for me, with a touch of heat coming into focus and slipping into the finish, mild spice, cool citrus rind, and mellow yeast. Overall, it can sneak up on you it seems into the finish. Sweetness is reeled back and much more my sdtyle, as far as the style goes. Not sweet or yeast driven. It is a touch hot into the finish. Iím excited to see what the barrel version shows. Overall, itís solid yet a bit tame and not all that complex, perhaps a bit muttled. Ok. Not a beer Iíd expect from the guys at FFF.

HonkeyBra (3480) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - APR 14, 2012
On tap at the brew pub. It pours a Burnt orange hue with an off white head. Aroma of muddled sweetness an Belgian yeast. Tropical fruit, juicy fruit gum. Light caramel notes. Flavor is fairly bitter with a carameled sugar sweetness. Fruity, specifically apple and pineapple, notes tend to dominate. This beer doesnít appear to have a lot else going on. Iím strained to find some orange marmalade, but perhaps itís the name "Tiger Jelly" itself that conjures up that flavor. Medium bodied, carbonation a bit lacking for the style. American Belgians are too often what they are. A reproduction, an homage, but never the real thing. Thatís not to say theres anything wrong with this beer.

NobleSquirrel (3437) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 22, 2012
Draft at Mariaís. Pours a hazy deep orangey amber with a frothy head that dissipates. Nose isnít the best. Bit of plastic and pepper, soem fresh hopping, citrus and banana. Kind of all over the place. Noted alcohol as well. On the palate, itís a bit muted. The yeast character kind of clouds it overall. Plenty of hop bitterness and toasty malt. Needs work in the fermentation department, which seems to be a theme for the Belgian styles.

pantanap (3366) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 25, 2012
On tap at Lincoln Station. Nice taplist here actually with powder burns and ham on rye in deck... Pours a hazy orangey brown, somewhat hazy although allowing some light to penetrate. Topped with a thin wispy creamy white head... Sweet belgiany yeasty esthers, sweet dried fruit with a tinge of slightly tart fruit on the backend... Flavors follow suit closely with a sweet profile accented by Belgian yeast and pale dried fruits while finishing on a slighty tart fruity note. An earthy dryness cuts down on some of that sweetness. Palatable and somewhat smooth but ultimately a bit too sweet for my tastes. Has some dubbel and tripel like qualities between it all.

Not that good and not that bad. Decent wheat beer Golden pour with small white head. Many other FFF beer I'd rather have ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz. pour at The Beer Trappe. Pours a cloudy orange with white lacing. The aroma is spiced for sure with hints at coriander, citronella, apricot, clove and more light fruits. The palate gets sticky after a few sips. The flavor has some papery hops peek through with more spices and a little citrus. Finish starts to get tough as the sticky, fruity thing snowballs. Itís aight.
