COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Now this is a saison! This refreshing Belgian-style ale is the combined effort of Three Floyds and De Molenís 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. 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.

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 (9999) - 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

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 (750) - - 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 Iíve 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 itís great.

DoublEE (784) - South Euclid, Ohio, USA - DEC 20, 2012
An interesting cross between a saison and an IPA (what do you expect from FFF), and itís done extremely well. The hops on this thing are incredibly bold and delicious, while the Belgian yeast and spiciness complement them nicely.

jcr (2165) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - DEC 15, 2012
Bomber. Deep, cloudy golden body. Big, frothy, off-white head, slowly diminishing. Big aroma of tropical fruit, mango, passion fruit, toasted grain, alcohol, pepper, The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly sweet and moderately bitter. Medium to full body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Lingering bitterness. Like a cross between Dupont Posca Rustica and Dreadnaught. Fruity, aromatic, juicy. Finish of peppery alcohol and less dry than classic saisons. But overall, this is one enjoyable beer.

Iím not compelled to rate too many beers anymore... but I had to login for this one. 22oz, orange/amber in color, quickly dissipating head... not a typical saison, canít really detect much yeast to this, hops are in the forefront, leaning more toward pine, hints of pomelo. Great offering.
