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!

Bottle; Pour is fairly clear dark gold with an average off white head in this glass - retention is on the average side - with some sticky lacing present here. Another FFF Belgian - never a good start at this point. However - it’s an interesting one because it embraces was FFF does (american hops) - i would call it a Saison / IIPA Hybrid. Unfortunately there’s a cat urine note on the nose ; dried apricots, pine, pineapple, and pear juice. What it doesn’t have, which I’ve come to expect, is the feeling of a Belgian from the barnyard side of things. The flavor profile reminds a bit of a Dreadnaught lite (pine, grapefruit, caramel) with more tropical notes present. The spicing fuses with the breadiness fairly well - Insane art on the bottle - props for it

radagast83 (5417) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - JAN 6, 2013
Bottle provided by Thorpe429, thanks Michael! Poured a yellow-orange color, touch of haze in this one. Small fizzy head. Aroma was orange and some lemon citrus notes. Taste was light citrus. Touch of spice, but not really that farmhouse/barn notes that I was expecting.

nimbleprop (5567) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - JAN 6, 2013
22oz bottle pours a slightly hazy orange with some clumpy white head. Nose is bright orange peel, some soap, ladies deodorant, herbal. Flavor has a lot of orange pulp, some malt, some flower petals, herbal, radicchio, some lemoncello. Medium, dry, herbal finish. Kinda weird.

BeerandBlues2 (10607) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 5, 2013
Bottle. Pours hazy orange with a medium, frothy off-white head, medium retention with good lacing. Aroma is straw malt, spices, barnyard yeast and pear esters. Flavor is medium hops and bitterness, light malt with spices and fruity esters and a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

Huhzubendah (2823) - Washington DC, USA - JAN 5, 2013
Shared by Thorpe429. Thanks Mike. The beer is orange with a small white head. The aroma brings hops and citrus followed by a sturdy malt backbone. Good flavor, though a bit sweet and syrupy. Oranges soaked in alcohol. Hoppy finish with lingering bitter citrus. Not really a saison, in my opinion, but tasty nonetheless. Good stuff.

Travlr (15095) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JAN 5, 2013
Bottle courtesy of Thorpe429, thanks! Murky yellow color. Aroma of orange and lemon zest. Taste is bitter lemon. More like an IPA than a saison. Nice.

Nose has some citrus, tropical notes, and white pepper behind too much booze. Flavor is similar but with a touch of light malt. Medium body

neepsntatties (1305) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 30, 2012
Bottle from "hannont". Colour...golden straw with no head. Nose...loads if tropical fruit with some peach and apricot. Palate...sweet but dry with lots of fruit and some ethanol to go with the predominate peach and apricot and moderate CO2.

Johnsense (944) - - DEC 25, 2012
Orange pour, lots of head. Citrus fruit in the aroma, lemon, grapefruit peel, spices, and faint belgian yeast. Big piney citrusy hops up front, grapefruit passionfruit, very slight wheat. Light body, fairly dry and lots of carbonation. Really interesting hop profile here. I should note the bottle artwork got me in some trouble at home.

22oz bomber bought at the brewery. Wow. This beer is phenomenal. Murky orange-red body, big steady, creamy off-white head. Has the dry funked up hoppiness of a Saison but with the bonus tropical tones, NZ style. Absolutely nails the style, and improves on it. Delicate and soft on the palate despite the big ABV. So much melon hop flavor. One of my favorite beers I’ve had recently for sure, FFF is really on fire. Even at 10 a bomber, I wish I had picked up a few of these. Expected it to be good, but it’s great.
