a cloudy honey-like pour, orange-yellow in color with very minimal amount of head which dissipated to only a slight rim of carbonation. smells grassy, spicy of pepper, saison style belgian yeast, lemon zest. the taste is funky up front, citrusy yet bready... then settles into a very traditional belgian wheat flavor. bready yeast is very present. medium in body, average amount of carbonation, pretty refreshing and the abv is very well hidden.

a nice easy drinking beer, with a lot of complex flavors entering your taste buds. very big change of pace from the 3f brews i've had (very hopped up ipa's and stouts), but another beer style nailed by this brewery.

22 oz bomber poured into 3F pint glass:

A - Nice 1 1/2" head with a slight yellow coloring that disapates to a solid 1/4" cap. moderate lacing over the golden to light amber body.

S - Apricot at first blush, traditional Belgian yeast aromas, no essence of the high abv.

T - Tasty, the apricot flavor comes through, slight earthiness to the hops. nice bread yeast character.

M - nice carbonation, well balanced with a nice warm feeling

O - very drinkable, will cellar a couple of these to see how they age. A nice BSPA from 3F.

22 oz. bottle served in a FFF teku glass.

A: Pours a semi-hazy amber color with a pure white head forming on the pour. It recedes quickly to a thin ring that leaves some splotchy lace behind.

S: Spicy, phenolic yeast. Some fruity esters, pale malts and a cotton candy like sweetness. Mild gass, but the overall beer is driven by the yeast.

T: Dry yeast. Spicy pepper, coriander and fruity esters. Pale, sweet malts and a light grassy hop presence.

M: Medium to light bodied. Slight dry finish with a medium carbonation level. Easily drinkable.

O: Nothing out of this world, but overall a solid BSPA. I've enjoyed a few more of FFF's offerings in this style, however.

Shared by nuplastikk. Thanks man!

The beer is transparent and appears amber to golden in color, sporting a thick white head. The aroma brings grass, alcohol, sweet, spicy fruits. The flavor brings some biscuits, bread, lemons, grass, alcohol. Moderately sweet with a drier, hoppier finish. Overall, this was pretty good.

On-tap at Big Star. Served in the same glass as everything else: the utilitarian pint/pils combo.

A - Generous white foam settles to a thin cap, thicker collar, and splotchy lacework. Lightly hazed apricot body that you'd expect from a Belgian.

S - The 3 Floyds house Belgian strain isn't particularly subtle; big phenolic and mildly dirty and spicy yeast notes abound, just like in Rabbid Rabbit. Some stone fruit sweetness, and a hint of alcohol. Sweeter than Tiger Jelly, the other 3 Floyds BSPA I've had recently.

T - The taste is quite nice, as it dials down the more sulfurous yeast notes and replaces them with fruity esters that complement the stone fruit malts, bready backbone, and mildly vinous finish. More apricot than peach, and perhaps a touch of pear. Perhaps a touch of floral and earthy hop.

M - Medium body, with pleasant carbonation, well-hidden alcohol, and dry finish.

D - I had to put this down quicker than expected to head elsewhere, and it never felt like a struggle. It's deceptive stuff and there's a nice balance between yeast and malt flavors. I'd drink this one again if it weren't as pricey.
