Pours a gorgeous glowing orange with a light haziness whispering through it. Grapefruit, tangerine in the nose with a nice spicy hoppiness. Creamy mouthfeel, zesty fruit in the flavor pops nicely and is complimented by more spicy hops and a sweet maltiness. Tangy dry finish. Tasty saison that drinks like an IPA.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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 - itís an interesting one because it embraces was FFF does (american hops) - i would call it a Saison / IIPA Hybrid. Unfortunately thereís a cat urine note on the nose ; dried apricots, pine, pineapple, and pear juice. What it doesnít have, which Iíve 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

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.

Bomber. Lots of citrus, a bit of sour and some sweetness. Really well balanced and goes down easy considering the ABV.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Glowing cloudy amber orange color. Spices dominate the aroma. Also has a bit of a sweet alcohol on the nose. From the aroma I would have guessed barleywine, certainly not saison. The first suprise on this beer are the massive amount of hops. Lots of citrius and tangerine come through. I had some Alpha King prior to this and you can immediatly notice the relationship. the finish has a bit of spicyness and bitterness. I have to admit that I havent had may of this style, but this seems to be quite a departure from the typical Saison Iíve had. I didnt get nearly as much of the banana and spice flavor but rather strong hops wth a spicy finish. Not sure if this is just better or it is just the result of the 3 floyds combination of lots of hops high ABV. Overall, a quite enjoyable beer.

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.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber from the brewery brought by ck1, thanks bro! Digging into another FFF creation with a lot of anticipation. Pours a lovely oranger-than-pink-grapefruit with a spongey white head. Excellent lacing just coating the glass. Aroma has spices, fresh fruit and a yeasty presence. Faint citrus. Taste is of many fruits - lemon, orange, grapefruit, apple, melon - plus chewy resin, a spicyness and some malt. Quite bitter and very dry as you get down through the glass, with some alcohol presence. This is not your father or uncleís saison - much more assertively hoppy and strong. Liked this one a lot. Another win for Floyds!
