(Served in a tulip glass)

A- This beer pours a hazy dark amber body with a thick sticky off-white head. There is a gentle carbonation of tiny bubbles that pop to the surface.

S- The smell of sweet caramel malt has hints of circus peanuts and dark caramel malt to follow.

T- The big phenol notes to the sweet malt gave way to a soft pine hop finish. As it warmed there were some clove notes and circus peanut notes to the sweetness aswell.

M- This beer had a medium-full mouthfeel with no alcohol heat at all.

D- This beer was a bit too sweet and the yeast flavors were a bit odd with the soft hops. The circus peanuts and clove notes tasted a bit out of place and the sweetness of the malt was a bit stronger than the hops.

Served during Darklord day 07 in a clear plastic cup.

No head just a skim of foam on top of a honey amber colored body. Nose is full of laud up front floral hops that is standard of Three Floyds. Hops hit the tongue and quickly spread evenly around to a nice mouth hue. While hops are dominant, they are also silky and very approachable. Actually comes off almost slightly sweet as it warms a bit. Mouthfeel is realatively clean. Drinkability is nice especially as it warms and the hops calm down a bit.

A-Semi cloudy orange, some carbonation and nice lacing.

S-Mild citrus hops, some grass, nice wheat and slight yeast notes.

T-Starts with some wheat, some yeast, slight lemon and grass. Mild bitterness.

M-Lighter, nice carbonation and a crisp finish.

O-A good beer, lacking the hop character you normally expect from FFF but was nice to see at a tap takeover.

On tap at the FFF brewpub. Pours a nice light golden/amber color into a tulip glass. Very little head. Aromas of hoppy citrus with a bit of pine and a little bit of bread. Flavors are of grapefruit, yeast and a bit of orange. Big upfront hop smell gives it away that this is a FFF brew. The beer has a medium body with a nice quick bitter sweet finish. FFF's describes this beer as a Belgian Ale. Maybe a little bit off base for this style, but it is a beer that I could find myself sitting down and drinking again.

Hyena!: A hybrid, pale ale brewed with all American hops, fermented with Chouffe yeast. I could not pass up this new offering at 3-F Brewpub. We stopped by and joined the Sunday noon lunch croud. My first of several from the taps - I found this hybrid Belgian American slightly hazy golden orange, hazed perhaps from late hop additions a small price for the enticing Belgian aroma and citrus hops. Alcohol was warming but otherwise well hidden. Slightly dryer finish that APA due to higher attenuation from Chouffel yeast strain. Well balanced. Served in a stemed chalace Belgian lace graduated the sides as I easily drained the contents.

Served in a tulip glass at the FFF brewpub this Belgian pale ale had an orange appearance and a dissipating head of foam which was almost all gone by the time it arrived at our table.

This beer smelled like a traditional 3F brew with its hoppy and floral aroma. It left rings on the glass as I sampled it's sweet spiciness which tasted citrus-y. I want to say that maybe I also tasted some pine and honey but it was faint. The mouthfeel was filmy but medium-bodied.

I enjoyed it and would drink it on tap again. I ordered the Turkey Smoker sandwich to go with this drink.

Nearly opaque and tangerine colored. Head of pure white is filmy, small and full of carbonation. Does leave some sticky lacing behind and subsequently has good retention.

Orange blossom, citrusy hop, big belgian spice and yeast. Bits of lemon zest and honey suckle.

Big and rich. Full of bitter hops, floral hops, and citrusy piney hops. The whole book. The Chouffe yeast strain works well. Leaves a nice spicey mid palate and a long lingering finish. Nectarine, orange zest, lemon, marmalade, candied sour apple, and cotton candy.

As not a huge belgian fan I wouldn't drink many of these but if that's your deal this could be a favorite for many.

a limited/one-off release at the brewpub, this was a hazy orange copper with a complex nose of flowers, honey, funky belgian chouffe yeast, and apricots along with general fruity and bready notes. taste was nice sweet malts with a crisp, drying finish. the menu said 35 IBUs and they managed to play a supporting role. medium-bodied and one of the better belgian-style ales i've had.

note:
i see that this is listed at 8% here but the brewpub had it at 6%. also, it is classified here as an APA but was noted as a belgian-style pale ale at the brewery.
