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!

Purchased at In Fine Spirits in Chicago, IL after going to the dentist, enjoyed on a nice, cool mid-fall evening. Appearance is a very cloudy, bright orange/ruby red with a rich white head that laces to the glass. Aroma of spice, lemon peel, Belgian yeast, mango, definitely rich in tropical fruits. Taste goes down slightly bitter with pronounced fruit/lemon notes, finishes dry, pretty good stuff with noticeable complexities.

Tmoney99 (10396) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 11, 2012
Bottle shared by JM. Poured hazy copper color with a large frothy off-white head that was lasting with good lacing. Moderate to heavy yeast, hop and spice aroma. Medium to full body with a sticky texture and flat carbonation. Medium complex bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Solid complex drinkable beer.

Aroma is piney/grapefruit hops and an undercurrent of spicy yeast. The flavor is grapefruit, tropical fruit, an undercurrent of mildly sweet malts, spices and a bitter/tart finish.

Bomber to taster (thanks jmborggren). Looks good; a hazy orange with off-white head. Smells and tastes spicy and zippy with a pleasant, dry mouthfeel. Nice.

Cloudy amber pour with an off-white head. Aroma is melon and pineapple hops. Some spiciness. Taste is dry, melon, spicy. The flavor reminds me a little of a honey dew melon. Best saison I have had- 3 Floyds signatur hops make it so.

deyholla (6481) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - OCT 7, 2012
Bottle. Pouts a hazy deep gold with a white head that dissipates slowly to the edges and laces. Aroma has a good amount of citrus with some light fruit, grain and light spice. Flavor starts with some bitter citrus that mellows to allow some light fruit and light spice to come out.

shrubber85 (7288) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - OCT 5, 2012
Bottle. Orange, peach, grapefruit, and musty malt aroma. Cloudy golden yellow with large white head. Sweet orange malt and moderately bitter herbal flavor. Not a bad beer - very sweet for a saison.

Bottle. Fresh pink grapefruit, honey, and musty aroma. Honey gold with a large ivory head, thick lacing. Syrupy sweet honey malt, subtle citrus peel, dry bitter herbal/spice flavor. Full body..

Hammy78 (722) - Dundas, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 5, 2012
Bottle sent to me by a very gracious local. Pours a hazy gold and copper colour with a active white head that recedes down to an almost film with a lot of lacing (and I mean a LOT). Nose is of many different tropical fruits, mango, grapefruit, passion fruit. Three Floyds really have their hopping down pat. Tastes quite bitter and sweet, a caramel like flavour too. Super smooth, possible Belgian yeast. This is reminisent of an IPA, and definetley for the hop lover. Really awesome.

22 oz. bottle pours a hazy orange with lumpy white head and good lacing. Smells like a Three Floyds brew with floral and citrus hops, although subdued.. Aroma is full of melon, honeysuckle, peach,and pineapple with a modest malt backbone. Body is medium with average carbonation. Mouthfeel is sticky and taste is sweet with a clean dry finish and noticeable alcohol. An interesting take on a saison, and the best of this style I’ve tried - much better than FFF Rabbid Rabbit
