Poured from the bottle into a tulip/snifter hybrid glass. The nose was pleasant, with a hint of the spicy Belgian yeast and a ton of banana. Surprisingly this one had a rather light-ish mouthfeel. It had some Brett-like almost sour qualities, moderate sweetness, with noticeable lemon/orange peel in the background. Some alcohol hung around in the after taste, but only a bit. I expected more hop character from a FFF'S brew, but this one lacked any noticeable hop presence, that could be due to the style though. I've had this on tap at the brew pub and I feel that's where it's best enjoyed. From the bottle this was very "meh" for me.

Impressions of first few sips: You ever been drinking a good Belgian Strong and thought to yourself "gee , this would be better if it was infused with fruity smelling candle wax?" No? Well I haven't either.

Impressions of sips after the first few: eh, it grows on you. The fruit starts to taste more like fruit and less like chemical imitations of fruit. Still, the spice profile ain't very good, and there's no malt or anything to help balance it out.

Bomber poured in to a tulip while spinning "Gin" by Cobalt.

A- Hazy amber/orange typical of the style, maybe a little foggier. Slight head which decreased to a thin, consistent layer. slight lacing, not much to speak of.

S- Classic FFF hoppy notes right away, followed by a faint corriander.

T- A little bready right off, then again citrus hoppiness, some alcohol, and finally almost- I know, weird- bubblegummy.

M- Fantastic. Haven't had a Three Floyds with bad mouthfeel yet.

O- This one is not on the favorites list. I have had just a few experiences with their takes on the Belgian styles, and I feel this just doesn't balance well with their signature super citrus-y hoppiness. The aforementioned Zes Zes Zes was quite the opposite, beautifully balanced, but that is for another review. By no means bad, I just wouldn't make a trip back to the brewpub to specifically buy this beer (though there is never a bad reason to go by).

650 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Hazy orange. Small white head. Wisps and a collar.

Smell - Nice orangey aroma. Phenolic cloves and bananas. Yeasty. Booze.

Taste - Much more of the Belgian character. Citrus is there, but fainter. More of a sweet apple flavor. Harsh pale malts. Booze and some spice in the finish.

Mouthfeel - Harsh alcohol. Not that much alcohol, but it's got a kick. A little heavy.

Overall - Enjoyed it at first, but it gets very harsh.
