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.

Tulip at FFF. Poured a hazy yellow-amber with a towering foam head which left behind lovely Belgian lacing. Aroma was bright hops and bread dough. Taste exhibited the typical spiciness for the style, but with a stronger citrus hop bite. Seemed a little undercarbonated, but otherwise a very nice effort.

envane (586) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 23, 2007
Draft. Clear golden colour. Very very dry with citrusy hops. No Belgian character that I could find. Its a good dry IPA, but fails as a Belgian.

OhioDad (2492) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - APR 29, 2007
On tap at the brewpub - Pours amber with a short white head. Aromas of orange, and a little spice, some yeast, and lots of fruity pear notes. Flavor is fruity with some orange and apricot there yeast, and some spice. Crisp and clean on the palate. This was pretty tasty.

My first 3F Belgian, and I found it tasty. It was everything I expected after reading the description. tasted some nice clovey bananas, as well as American character. Nice.

Stine (1799) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 13, 2007
On tap at the brewpub. Opaque, sunny orange pour. Pungent sweetness of pinapple and garlic cloves in the aroma; lit up by banana, vanilla and pears with a lot of lively spark and delicate sugar. Flavor brings some dense spice and phenols, seeming a bit warmer than it should or than it is. Quite estery and fairly dry; leafy hop character and white cracker yeast tones fill in the body with enough bready density and bitterness to create balance. Some ginger and pepper come through on the back of the nose in the mid-palate. Medium bodied in the mouth; syrupy and sticky to a surprising degree, leaving a cooling sweetness of vanilla in a creamy finish. Bitten with a bit more clove and dry grass at the very end. Lots of potential in this one, but it seems to wrap up as something quite less exciting than the sum of its seemingly well-chosen parts might project itself to be.
