look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

On tap at FFF. Served in a tulip.

Brilliantly clear, slightly orange-tinted golden body beneath a nearly white head of 3 fingers. Great retention an lacing.

Lots of citrusy hop notes-- those New Zealand hops are tasty! There is a little grassiness and a touch of earthy Belgian yeast.

Some yeasty fruity esters come across a bit on the finish that I hadn't picked up in the nose. Lots of lemony, orangey, and grassy hops with a pretty strong bitterness.

Medium-full body with plenty of carbonation.

Overall-- a pretty tasty BPA. Maybe not the best, but certainly a solid beer from FFF. Very enjoyable an easy to drink. It actually reminds me of aotearoa, but with a Belgian yeast strain.

On-tap at Three Floyds. Served in a tulip.

A - A finger of orange-tinged foam settles to a thin cap, leaving behind glass-coating lace. Lightly hazed golden-bronze body, with a few slow-moving streams of bubbles present.

S - Initially the smell is very subdued - I suspect I got this far too cold. After letting it warm up a bit I discovered it smells like lemon cake - icing sugar, cake batter, lemonade, and a hint of lotion.

T - The taste has a bit more of the trademark Struise yeast, imparting peppery and light phenolic notes. Otherwise this has a ton of the trademark Sorachi Ace lemon character, as well as a herbal finish that features mounting bitterness. As the beer warms, the Belgian influence comes out a lot more.

M - Chewy texture, medium body, no alcohol presence, and some slightly zesty active carbonation. The finish has tons of resins and hop oils - far more than I'd expect from this style of beer.

D - It took me significantly longer to work through this beer than the 219, even though this is only slightly stronger in alcohol. A very unusual combination of flavors, but ultimately a fairly successful one. I'd have this again, and I preferred it slightly to Eben-Emael.
