served on-tap @ Three Floyds brewpub, Munster, IN, into a tulip glass

Pours a hazy yellow color, the shade of a Halls honey-lemon cough drop. Less than a finger of eggshell colored head. It's very... expected looking. Basic.

The aroma, however, is anything but. The first whiff yielded that distinctly lemony aroma that Sorachi Ace hops provide. Subsequent sniffs, though, were all about pineapple. Just tons and tons of pineapple juice. It's an aroma that makes me thirsty just thinking about it. There's a bit of plasticy astringency from the Belgian yeast but nothing substantial.

The taste sort of follows the nose, but it is way more subdued that the aroma. It's light and clean. It's be good with food, for sure. Crackery malts meets light pineapple meets yeasty balance, dashed off with a twist of lemon.

The beer goes down easily, despite not having the level of attenuation that I ideally want to see in Belgian styles. Overall, this is a nice beer that doesn't taste like how incredibly it smells.

On-tap at FFF.

A - Pours a darker orange color, white head, thin collar, spotty lace.

S - Hops, Belgian yeast, banana, citrus. I like the nose, the hops are the main contributor to this brew, while the others take a back seat.

T - The hops are there, but not quite as prominent as the nose suggests. The yeast adds a sweeter characteristic and follows up with tropical fruity notes. Finish has a hoppy bite.

M - Light body, good carbonation, syrupy finish.

O - A nice Belgian Pale that's easy to drink and not quite as hop-focused as your (not) normal Three Floyd's beer. I would definitely have a pint if it's available on-tap at the brewpub. Good stuff.

At 3 Floyds- ontap

A - Slight copper to golden hue, slightly hazy. 1.5" white head, nice lacing.

S - Slight grapefruit, nice hop aroma is the dominate nose.

T - Nice sweet flavor from the yeast, hops are present but not as strong as nose indicated, slight fruity taste, grapefruit and banana. Little bit from the hops on the aftertaste.

M - well carbonated, served at about 38F, hops really released as beer warmed. Might have been served a bit to cold for style.

O - A well balanced beer. Something different for 3 Floyds. Very refreshing, and drinkable. Will definitely enjoy this one again.

Draft at Twin Anchors, served in a footed goblet.

Dark brassy gold, orange tones, fairly good clarity though there was some haze and carb trails visible in the light. Compact cap of white foam.

Overripe funky fruit in the aroma, bruised peaches or pineapple.

Pretty smooth and easy drinking, well integrated Belgian yeast fruitiness with some hop complexity and citrus peel bitterness lingering behind. Sorachi Ace hops are in general pretty distinctive, though they seemed a bit subtle here, and more a supporting component of the whole. Light to medium bodied with some slight sweetness at first segueing into a bitter and lightly dry aftertaste.

Overall pretty tasty, could be a little more crisp and hoppy, but the combination of fruity yeast & hops here was interesting.
