nuplastikk (6452) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - APR 8, 2009
Draft into a tulip glass at the brewpub. orange brown color. Massive head which fades out after a minute, leaving the glass 1/5 empty. Sweet subdued aroma. Herby, sugary, yeasty tastes. Smooth, mellow carbonation. The yeast dominates a little too much in my opinion, lacks subtlety. Sugary, somewhat typical of US-Belgian beers.

kaser (6382) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 23, 2014
Had this from draft at 3 Floyds brewpub. Orange pour with white head. FLoral tropical aroma. This wasn’t very Belgium tasting, more like a pale ale - good hops and fruity taste. Good beer.

decaturstevo (6343) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - JUN 1, 2007
At 3F’s. A light yeasty aroma that reeks of Belgian ale. A slightly golden amber pour with excellent lacing. The expected clovish/corriander flavor followed by fruit and seal with the citrus hops that lead to the excellent bitter finish. Good carbonation and good mouthfeel. A full textured palate. A very fine offering.

thedm (6319) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - FEB 1, 2008
This draft brew from the brew pub poured a small sized head of foamy finely sized white colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a hazy very softly carbonated orange brown colored body and a fair lacing. The weak aroma was bready and dough. The crisp mouth feel was tingly at the start and strongly tingly at the finish with a biting hoppy aftertaste. The balanced flavor contained notes of malt hops and dough. Delicious and one I would certainly buy again.

Cornfield (5569) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - MAR 14, 2007
Served in a tulip, the body is a hazy pale amber and the off-white head is large and coats the glass with lacing. The aroma is is fruity with sweet citrus smells and a faint touch of cherry along with soft malts and a faint floral scent. It’s got a light, smooth and creamy mouthfeel. The fruits continue into the flavorand a mild earthy bitterness enters the picture. It finishes on a light fruity note with the hops lingering beneath. Pretty nice.

On tap at the FFF Brew Pub. Pours a lightly hazy golden amber with a bubbly/creamy off white lacing head. Aroma was very fruity, various citrus (orange), a bit of spiciness, Chouffe Yeast, Belgian spices, great fresh hopped Belgian ale. Flavor was a hopped up LaChouffe with American hops, orange, pine, light hop bitterness, peppery spiciness, Chouffe yeast and hints of banana.

HonkeyBra (4044) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - APR 19, 2009
Draft at the brewpub. My girlfriend ordered it, took a few sips, then gave it to me. See kids, this is why you need a girlfriend. Orange amber pour with foamy head. Yeasty aroma of apples, candy sugar. Flavor is fruity, spicey, low hoppiness. Pretty good american take on a belgian pale.

3.9
SpringsLicker (3677) - Tennessee, USA - AUG 1, 2007
On tap at the brewery Dark Lord Weekend. A long-lasting creamy white head crowns this slightly cloudy, medium gold brew. Fragrant aroma, flowery, spicy, herbal. Some lavender. The flavor is slightly sweet with a flowery finish. Quite different. Nice.

queenholly (3623) - South Whitley, Indiana, USA - JUN 1, 2014
Draft @ Twenty Tap. Caramel malt and sweet orange-grapefruit aroma. Has that typical FFFs IPA aroma thing going on. Clear amber with a large white head. Sweet caramel malt, piney orange-grapefruit hops flavor. Medium body, soft carbonation. At first I didn’t get any Belgian character out of this one, but as it warmed a little Belgian yeast seemed to develop.
