Complex flavor that is not as hop forward as is often 3F’s MO. A lover of Robert the Bruce I find that when they very into malty territory 3F’s are as precise and delicious as when creating their signature hop heavy beers. Rune Priest is a delightful amalgamation of both landscapes. BuckeyeSammy (617) - Palo Alto, Ohio, USA - JAN 21, 2012
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.

Draft at the source. Hazy amber, large white head with Swiss cheese lacing. Aroma of Ignis et Flamma. Taste is Elliot brew. Very nice indeed. Hammy78 (975) - Dundas, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 7, 2012
UPDATED: JAN 17, 2012 Draft at the Three Floyds brewpub. Pour is a copper colour with a nice off white head and lace that calms down to a thick ring and some bubbles. Sheets of lacing left behind on the glass walls. Smells sweet and a little hoppy. Taste is bitter sweet and like a butter flavor as well. No mistake there is Belgian like yeast, there is also a dill like flavor on the back end. Quite different. chibuck (3521) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 29, 2012
draft... outstanding new fff offering, the yeast brings this beer alive, super fruity esters, I’m almost convinced theres fruit in this, crushable and worth seeking out immediately

On tap at three Floyd’s. 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 drewbeerme (3921) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 21, 2012
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. It’s got some good parts but just isn’t working that well together although it started to grow on me. HonkeyBra (4044) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - DEC 10, 2011
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a hazy golden orange with a white head. Aroma of belgian yeast, bubble gum, banana, tangerine hops. Grass, pine, mild mint from the sorachi Ace hops. Spells interesting. Flavor is smooth, inviting. This beer focuses on Belgian fruity yeast notes and a fair amount of bitter hops. Mild tangerine and mint, lots of banana and bubble gum. It’s easy to drink, smooth, nice. It goes down fast and before you know it the glass is gone. Definitely a good beer. It doesn’t find some of the heights that some Three Floyds beers find but it’s a good drink. Medium bodied, good carbonation. I’d have a few more of these. NobleSquirrel (3439) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 18, 2012
Draft at Maria’s. 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 I’m still not into these American hopped Belgian beers. deyholla (12195) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 17, 2012
