Complex flavor that is not as hop forward as is often 3Fs MO. A lover of Robert the Bruce I find that when they very into malty territory 3Fs are as precise and delicious as when creating their signature hop heavy beers. Rune Priest is a delightful amalgamation of both landscapes.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear pale orange with with a white head that lasts throughout the beer. Aroma has light grassy hops with a backing earthy grains with a hint of hay. Flavor has a good amount of grassy with light pine and a backing sweet grains.

FunkyBrewster (1518) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 8, 2012
On tap at three Floyds. Pours deep golden with a small white head. Aroma is nicely soft and citric, sweet doughiness and a lemon note with a strong vanilla character. Flavor starts soft and sweet, nice Belgian yeast note that fades into the light lemon and vanilla note again. Finish crisp but smooth. Medium body and a soft carbonation, very nice

draft... outstanding new fff offering, the yeast brings this beer alive, super fruity esters, Im almost convinced theres fruit in this, crushable and worth seeking out immediately

hollardustin (327) - Indiana, USA - JAN 29, 2012
On tap at 3Floyds. Pours orange with a frothy white head. The aroma is floral with notes of lemongrass and spicy yeast, but not as much of the spicy phenols that you might expect from belgian yeast. Taste is sorachi ace hops with faint traces of belgian yeast. I havent been overly impressed with sorachi ace hops the few times Ive had them, but they work pretty well here. The belgian yeast does a good job of helping balance the musty flavors that these hops tend to impart. Not bad.

Enjoyed on tap at Local Option in Chicago, IL while talking to some friends over the overtly loud music that was playing. Appearance a dark gold with a thin white head. Aroma of lemon & grassy hops, a bit of peach, I guess thats the aroma character of the Sorachi Ace hops. Taste is just too peachy for me, and I could tell it was hopped but couldnt really tell it was a Belgian ale. Not a fan, one of the more disappointing FFF brews in my opinion.

Nose of pine needles, definitely a sweet character. Wooly Bear orange in color. Piney hip notes dispipate as the beer settles. Flavor: hopped carbonation hits the front of your palate at first sip, well balanced flavor profile, piney hops throughout, sweetness on the back of my toungue no doubt a product of the struise yeast used on this one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft at FFF, pours glowing orange with no white head. Aroma is rather floral and phenolic, some grass and lemons too. Flavors are grassy with sweet and spicy honey comb, flowers, spicy yeast finish. Its got some good parts but just isnt working that well together although it started to grow on me.

NobleSquirrel (3438) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 18, 2012
Draft at Marias. Pours a hazy deep gold with some bronze and a frothy head. Nose is fruity, juicy citrus and lemon grass and a white pepper note. Soft Belgian esters. Some tangerine is in there as well. On tasting, it is really bitter with some yeast bite. Light astringency. Big citrusy notes and more of that lemony quality with the white pepper making another appearance. Pretty solid overall but Im still not into these American hopped Belgian beers.
