Hazy light orange beer with nice medium head. Citrussy aroma’s with hints of asian spices wheat and banana. Taste is a bit round and has a lack of freshness. Outspoken wheatyness in the taste with soft sugary notes. Spicyness in the afthertaste with touch of fresh butter and sweet lemoncandy. Thanks Chris (Bello)

Growler: hazy mango, bleached white head that diminishes into a thin ring at the edge. Thin, airy aroma of light cloves, peppery bananas and mangos. A slight breadiness develops as it warms and breathes, but overall I was a little disappointed with the aromatics in this one. Soft palate that has a bit of grain on the back of the tongue. Bananas melt in the mouth as strong, whole cloves, orange peels and other bitter citrus notes add an interesting dimension, but overall I was too impressed with this one – I would like to try it again on a warm summer day…

Hopped-up Belgian white with a spicy (coriander) undertone. Not my favorite Three Floyds, but would definitely sample occasionally.

UPDATED: JUL 4, 2005 I’ve had mixed reactions whilst imbibing this brew. Not much to look at for a wit, but alive with grassy, spicy, lemony aromas. Quite lively in the mouth, this is a muchly hopped up wit. The bitter spiciness was welcome and enjoyable, but not really close to style. Still... I’d drink more in a flash.

Sampled in plastic at the brewery. Mild nose but definitely hoppy in the 3F style but with a real spicy witbier character. I must mention it was served too cold for my taste. Shame on you Floydicus!

Sampled at the brewery. My first rating in a plastic cup. Having had Hoegaarden the night before, I felt that this was fair to compare. A medium white head and light gold cloudy color. The aroma is oranges, hay, fresh bread and a hint of the corriander. The mouthfeel is full and this is highly carbonated. The beer tastes strongly of hops for the style. There are also oranges and a very light spicing. Too light on the corriander for me.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JAN 7, 2005
On tap at brewery - Pours a hazy light orange with a thin frothy off-white head. Aroma is mildly malty and decently spiced with some citrus notes. Starts semi-sweet and fizzy, but that could just be a result of the cold temperature it was served at. The wheat flavor seems to remind me more of American wheat beers versus their European counterparts. The spices are pretty well done here as is the hop bill, which kinda surprised me by not being through the roof. Could use a little more Belgian malt and wheat, but otherwise enjoyable and quite drinkable as it warms.

Terminus (3283) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - JAN 6, 2005
tap at brewery-dec 30,2004. pours a cloudy yellow hue with a slightly off-white head. big corriander aroma with a variety of spices. very aromatic and true to the style. AWESOME lacing, even in the stupid plastic cup they serve in. NIce noble hop bite in the finish. I expected a three floyds twist with some citric hop notes, but that was not the case. As it warmed, the lemongrass notes came through much better. I really like the fact that Three floyds kept this beer to style but i was also kinda wanting a "its not normal" twist on it. I would LOVE to have a keg of this in my apartment.

HopsOrDie (687) - New Lenox, Illinois, USA - JAN 2, 2005
Hazy golden orange hue with a small white head. The aroma had very spicey notes to it and a slight Buddig Beef scent? Very light palate. The flavor was not what I was expecting from a Three Floyd’s Brew: instead of being more hoppy it had a ton of spicey flavor almost like pepper. Not much orange or wheat to speak of. Maybe I just don’t like this style.
