On-tap at FFF XV and poured into a tasting glass.

A - Pours a burnt orange color, white head, thin collar, thin cap.

S - Burnt sugars, sweet malts, orange chewy candy with sugars. Very sweet and rich, big and bold...still quite balanced and the alcohol is hidden well.

T - Sweet orange candy, burnt sugars, slight caramel, slight hoppy notes. Again, very sweet and rich...the alcohol is there but pretty well hidden for over 10%. Syrupy orange/sweet finish.

M - Medium, light carbonation, creamy, sweet syrupy finish.

O - A decent wheatwine...I had no problem finishing my pour. This is a desert beer and an enjoyable one, at that. Would have again, if I had the chance.

On tap at the maproom, probably the last pour.

Color is a hazy golden orange color. Creamy white head with excellent retention and spiderweb lacing.

Aroma is very strong and mainly resinous, piney and citrus hops. Tart wheat fermented malt is in the background.

Taste emulates the nose with a very heavy tart fermented wheat malt with loads of citrus and fruity hops to go along. Low bitterness follows and alcohol is mildly apparent.

Body is heavy with moderate to low carbonation.

Great extreme beer from 3F. It has a low drinkability but a lot of flavor.

A - Clear amber colored beer with a white head that left some nice sheets and lace down the side of my glass.

S - I don't usually like grapefruit in a beer, but this one has a great grapefruit quality that is quite pleasant. Slightly earthy with some nice hops that balances our the wheatwine sweetness.

T - Taste is great. Some caramel, honey, grapefruit, and nice hops. I really dig this one, possibly my favorite Wheatwine ever.

M - Nice carbonation, beer is really smooth, medium bodied.

O - Goes down easy, way too easy to drink given the ABV. This was a great beer, and for style, one of my favorites.

On tap at the Map Room. 12oz poured into a tulip glass.

A – Dark Caramel, no light coming through. Nice head dissipates in the middle, hangs on to the edges forever. Lacing clings to the side of the glass all the way to the rim.

S – Not overpowering. Lemon-orange. No alcohol, definitely has hops. Very refreshing.

T – Freaking delicious. Delicious malty pale ale beginning gives way to a hint of lemonade. Flavors hit, do their job, and then let the next flavor in. Very well rounded. Not overly sweet. I get some alcohol, but it’s the tiniest amount and in a good, warm way. It balances what sweetness there is.

M – Carbonation hits and then it’s smooth, thick.

O – Awesome awesome beer. Complex and fun to drink. Very glad to have had the chance to try it—will seek out again.

On tap at The Common Table after the Jester King/Mikkeller beer dinner.

The beer pours an orange-amber color with a white head. The aroma has a lot of biscuit malt, as well as a lot of orange citrus notes from the hops and some sugary notes.

The flavor is a nice mix of caramel malt and honey, as well some some orange citrus and pine notes from the hops. There is also the same sugary sweetness that I got in the aroma. There is also some alcohol present but the beer is still easy to drink. Overall, I think the beer tastes like a bigger version of Alpha King, with the same hop profile that I get in a lot of the Three Floyds beers.

Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Glad I got to try this one, which I found to be very good.

On tap at Map Room's 19th anniversary party.

Served in a tulip, bright saturated orange tone, with a compact layer of white foam on the surface. Drippy lave all around the glass. Lasting retention.

Unique hop aroma, slightly woody and earthy, reminds me of sorachi ace a little bit. Flavors of rich caramel and resiny crushed hop cones.. Smooth feel, sweet and sticky on the lips. Medium bodied with a long bitter aftertaste. Overall pretty hop forward, as much of FFF's output is. Better than past goops, at least those in recent memory.
