On tap at FFF

A - Hazy golden brown. Reminds me of apple cider. Very hazy and looks unfiltered. Very opaque and barely any white head.

S - Hints of banana, clove and bubblegum are in the nose, which only gave off a light smell

T - Strong banana and clove dominate. There are hints of bubblegum as well. Definitely has the Belgian yeast esters. The banana reminds me of a banana now and later. There is also hints of lemon and grass well.

MF - Wow this is one thick beer. Really thick and sticky. Medium carbonation. With the thick body you really get the favors and almost feel like you are having a smoothie

O - A really flavorful beer that packs a wallop. Super thick and full. Tastes a lot like a hefe with all of the banana, bubblegum and clove

Clear orange body. White head of two fingers, nice lacing and retention.

Smells really fruity-- lots of banana, lemon peel, and bright crisp grape notes.
The flavor is light on malt and big on hoppy and yeasty fruit notes; it's hard to figure to which ingredient do I attribute each flavor, but I'll let it pass.

Body is surprisingly full, yet well carbonated.

Overall-- this strikes me as having some New Zealand hops in it in conjunction with the FFF house Belgian yeast. It is tasty and interesting, hoppy and fun. Totally with a try, but nowhere near as amazing as Shark Pants!

Had on tap at Firkin in Libertyville, IL. Very tasty Belgian ale. Sweet with no detectable hoppiness, which was unexpected given the other popular FFF beers. The alcohol is well-hidden up front, a bit hot on the way down. Tasty. I would have a couple of these, no problem. Hope to have it again for sure.

Stepping outside of their usual influences of comic books and and head banging music, instead the class and charm of Belgium edges infiltrates the brewery with this passionate and stern strong Belgian golden ale.

The beer pours with a creamy and somewhat weighted appearance with yeasty cloudiness, and a whipped cream-like white foam cap. Fantastic retention and lacing leaves the eye impressed. However, the beer doesn't have the spritzy carbonation or the airy head character of traditional Belgian ales of similar strength and and complexity.

Vivid aromas of malt and fruit give a light bread and honey scent that's decorated with lighter fruit notes of apples, apricots, dried oranges, and almost-banana. Dusted with yeasty spices of clove, coriander, and white pepper- the beer takes on a vague aroma of German wheat beers as well as Belgian.

Fruit acidity is tempered with malt richness and moderate sweetness. Oranges, apples, papayas and plantains carry a zesty lemon-like tartness that weaves into the peppery bite from yeast. These spice qualities balance the malt and richer fruit taste well while offering some of the complexities that are often lacking in America-brewed versions. The somewhat rich taste gives this example a verbose character that's not entirely malt.

Acidity, alcohol, mild hops, and spicy phenols help to deliver a dry palate with acidic bite, and pleasant tartness. But the creamy character allows for the taste and texture of cream sickle. Where there's a pleasant quality to be desired, it gets away from the lighter and more effervescent Belgian varieties.

Although I may still prefer authentic examples such as Delirium Tremens and Piraat, this American-ized version works much better than most of the style that I've seen brewed domestically.
