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!

Viper666 (2763) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 4, 2013
Bouteille 22oz, courtoisie de Johnsense. De couleur ambrée et voilée. Nez de levures fruitées (raisins blancs fermentés, notes de fruits tropicaux, de poires vertes et d’agrumes) aux notes épicées (poivre doux) et terreuses, moyen de pain, léger de grains de malt sucrés et de houblon floral aux notes herbeuses et citriques ainsi qu’avec des notes d’alcool. Moyennement ronde en bouche avec un pétillement moyen ainsi qu’une texture aux notes crémeuses. Goût moyen-amer et asséchant (une amertume présente en arrière-goût toute la gorgée) semblant provenir à la fois de houblon floral et citrique (pamplemousse, pomelo) ainsi que de levures fruitées et terreuses (agrumes, traces de pêches) lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un moyen goût de levures épicées (poivre, faibles traces de clou de girofle) avec des notes de céréales sucrées et de pain. Parallèlement, l’on retrouve un léger-moyen goût d’alcool réchauffant (incluant de faibles traces de sirop contre la toux) jusqu’en finale, où l’amertume de houblon se fait légèrement herbeuse. Post-goût long et sec, moyen-amer de houblon floral, légèrement citrique et herbeux avec un goût de levures fruitées et assez terreuses (zeste d’agrumes) ainsi qu’avec un léger goût d’alcool et d’épices (poivre doux).

Another great beer from three floyd’s. Served on tap, reminded me of other saison beers, nothing out of the ordinary. Worth trying.

This one poured a hazy light yellow color with a white head. Aroma was fruity esters and hops, some belgian spicey notes, and the bready citrus hops 3 floys smell. Flavor was refeshing, althoguh a bit sweeter than I was expecting, but good balance of spice, sugar and hops. Another solid 3Floyds beer.

Uploading old ratings that were missing comments. Drank at the brewpub. Maybe my favorite saison of all time. Light, refreshing and just a little funky. Palate is incredible. Soft and full, just like all of the great Three Floyd's stuff. Absolutely fantastic. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
