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!

Bottled@PBF VIII. Golden colour, small white head. Aroma is fruity, nectary, some slight honey and quite sweet. Flavour is very much the same, and a very nice balance to it. The alcohol is evident but quite ok to it.

65 cl bottle @ PBF Ⅷ
Aroma is sweetish with apricot, biscuits, fruits and caramel. Flavour is rather strong on apricot, some fruity notes. Finishes with apricot, grassy notes and hints of peppery spices. Becomes even too strong on herbs and spices at the end of the glass. Not bad anyway.

65 cl. bottle sampled @ Kraddel does 1K tasting. Procured by Kraddel. Cheers. Golden amber with little white head. Nose is huge on hops, USA, pine, big hay, lots of spices, big pepper, spicy yeast and quite rustic, nice. Taste is surprisingly bitter, very bitter hay, feels like there is quite a lot of old world hops in here as well, Eastern-EU?, grass, lots of barn, very big hay, huge raw spicy yeast, very lingering, grass, light zest, pepper, huge ester. Lovely but so harsh that it is almost hard to drink a glass, let alone a 22 oz. Ridiculously dry body. Quite lovely.
