COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Now this is a saison! This refreshing Belgian-style ale is the combined effort of Three Floyds and De Molen’s fantastic brewer Menno (the real Dutch Hercules). This spicy and bracing ale was brewed in Munster, but look out for the one we brew in Holland at DeMolen. Cheers and drost!

Pours a hazy golden orange with a bit of head that dissipates quickly. Smell is quite hoppy with grass and trees, but also has a bit of a wild touch and a bit of something sweet, very nice though hoppier than I would have expected. Palate is medium bodied and has a good amount of softer finer carbonation. Taste is hoppy at first but then gets a bit of a funky flavour and gets balanced with some sweetness though fades out to some hoppy bitterness. Very complex and interesting.

What an unexpected beer. Tingly mouth feel and a healthy hops finish. Sweet on the front end, dry at the finish. Golden orange color and heavy white head. As expected awesome from 3F & Menno. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

22oz bottle from lemonhead. Cloudy rusty amber with a small off white head. Aroma of honey, milk caramels, peppercorns and lemon. Flavor is very sweet, lots of caramel and butterscotch, there is some mild spice and bitterness. Medium body with a syrupy, flabby mouth feel. This is supposed to be a Saison???, really? This beer is a flabby, under attenuated mess.

Crazy fruity. Smells like an orange lemon. Bright orange. Not a Saison fan but love this one. Super flavorful and enjoyable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Not much in the way of aromas. Fruity Belgian and American hop flavors. Overall very good collaboration.

Had on tap the source. Served in a stemmed tulip. A: Pours a semi clear amber color with a thick white head forming on the pour. It’s about one finger in height and it recedes slowly leaving behind sticky sheets of lace. S: The citris hop profile on the nose really jumps out at you with some orange and lemon zest as well. Sweet Belgian yeast cuts through on the back end with some refined malts. T: Spicy belgian yeast, with a little bit of pepper and clove, is up front. Nice grassy hops and citrus zest with a semi-bitter grapefruit pith on the finish. Sweet malt body. Well hidden booze for 8.5% M: Medium bodied with a little heft to it. Great prickly carbonation with a drying finish. O: A well crafted saison with a little body to it. Obviously I’d like it a little lighter to make it a little more easy drinking, but the flavor profile gets you past that. Definitely recommed for any saison fan.

22oz bottle from Antioch Fine Wine and Spirits, split with my wife. Pours a bright, amber color with a white head and some lacing. Aroma is a little bready, but mainly hoppy, citrus, grapefruit. Medium on the palate with average carbonation. Flavor is sweet, cereal, a little bitter, grassy hops, with a light bitter finish. A pretty decent beer, but not much of a saison in my opinion.

BBB63 (6051) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - OCT 17, 2012
Bomber bottle and served in an Unibroue tulip: Pours a deep golden honey hue with an initial huge head which left very good lace upon the glassware The aroma as notes of biscuit, pils, honey, aromatic and crystal mats along with grains of paradise and oregano spice vapours, light to moderate grassy and citric hop esters. The taste is similar to the nose, malty yet not sweet with a noticeable spicy midesection and finish embraced by even handed bitterness, ever present citric notes lets you know this is not an olde word Saison. My only real complaint is the noticeable presence of alcohol which reduces the refreshment factor often found in the genre. Lively crisp and biting mouthfeel, yeah it is a Floyds take on Saison. I would drink this again.

Bomber from the brewery brought by ck1, thanks bro! Digging into another FFF creation with a lot of anticipation. Pours a lovely oranger-than-pink-grapefruit with a spongey white head. Excellent lacing just coating the glass. Aroma has spices, fresh fruit and a yeasty presence. Faint citrus. Taste is of many fruits - lemon, orange, grapefruit, apple, melon - plus chewy resin, a spicyness and some malt. Quite bitter and very dry as you get down through the glass, with some alcohol presence. This is not your father or uncle’s saison - much more assertively hoppy and strong. Liked this one a lot. Another win for Floyds!
