Sampler at The Beer is Good event a couple months ago. Just got a couple tastes of this, and it was definitely like a roid-rage version of a belgian wit. Just too much spice to really enjoy. Cool name though...

My least favorite beer from Three Floyds. Had it on tap at Fiddle Hearth in South Bend.

Draft at Owen & Engine. I actually had higher feelings on this than most others, it would seem. Pours a slightly hazed pale yellow with a sticky white head. Nose is decently, more white pepper than you’d expect, also has a sweetness to the nose along with the citrus. On taste, sweetness comes across as a touch distracting, citrus peel affords some bitterness. The yeast isn’t quite right for the style but still seems to work. Quite fruity, just a bit on the sweet side. Solid.

Thick white freaks. Very small sample at 3f... Pours a mostly hazy golden cloudy hue with a fluffy thick white head... Assertive clove and sage like spice presence, a touch of menthol, a yeasty ethers underneath and following. Very strange to say the least... Sweet and cloying is the first thing I noticed and remains that way well beyond thefinish. Through the middle exists the aforementioned spice qualities that become a little overwhelming. No semblance of a nice imperial wit underneath. Thick and cloying.

Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - AUG 15, 2011
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a cloudy orange colored body with a thin, frothy, white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a moderate lacing throughout. Aroma is wheats with a light sweetness and a nice orange peel citrus. Ginger becomes more apparent as this warms and really blends well with the orange. Light coriander and soft pepper as well. Flavor is a bit sweet up front with a good amount of orange and a light coriander. Wheats come out in the middle with some ginger and banana. Belgian yeast is apparent before this finishes sweet with lots of orange and a lingering coriander and bready wheat. Medium length aftertaste following a thin body and carbonation. Overall, an okay white ale. It’s not overly sweet for the ABV% which is nice. Lots of orange and the ginger aspect is pretty cool, but this wasn’t one of my favorites from FFF.

Tap at the brewpub. Aroma: sweet, yeasty and fruity, pungent coriander, light malts. Pours a quite cloudy golden-straw color, OK head retention and tons of clumpy lacing. Pleasantly spicy flavor, fruity, pretty sweet, even a bit syrupy, light grains. Medium-full body, medium carbonation. Decent brew, a touch on the heavy side.

LilBeerDoctor (4218) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 31, 2011
On tap at the brewery. Pours a cloudy orange with a thick white head. Aroma of cereally malt, yeast, orange rind, peppery spices, and coriander. Flavor of sweet orange, yeast, bready malt, pound cake, lemon, brown sugar, wheat malt. Very orangey and very sweet as well. Tough to drink.

Thick opaque yellow-orange with a nice head that didn’t last all that long. Spicy aroma with a lot of orange citrus notes, banana, coriander, pepper, and slightly doughy yeast. The flavor is sweet and full, with a slightly dry finish. Lots going on in this one. Full, creamy body and mellow carbonation. Somewhere between a wit and a triple.

Hazey golden-white with some white head. Sweet, gingery spiced aroma and taste.
