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 from brewpub. Deep orange in color with copious white head. Deep spiced tropical fruit, mango, peach, light apple, and moderate pine. Flavor starts mildly sweet with mango and peach and then dries out nicely with pine and tropical fruit bitterness. Well-attenuated with some lingering skunky pine and fruit.

Cloudy amber pour with an off-white head. Aroma is melon and pineapple hops. Some spiciness. Taste is dry, melon, spicy. The flavor reminds me a little of a honey dew melon. Best saison I have had- 3 Floyds signatur hops make it so.

Purchased at In Fine Spirits in Chicago, IL after going to the dentist, enjoyed on a nice, cool mid-fall evening. Appearance is a very cloudy, bright orange/ruby red with a rich white head that laces to the glass. Aroma of spice, lemon peel, Belgian yeast, mango, definitely rich in tropical fruits. Taste goes down slightly bitter with pronounced fruit/lemon notes, finishes dry, pretty good stuff with noticeable complexities.

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

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

On tap at Local Option 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.

Pours a hazy deep amber. Aroma: fantastic with caramel, peach, spices and hints of smoke. Taste is similar with peach, honey, caramel with light smoky tones. Very very good!! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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 I’ve 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.

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

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 uncle’s saison - much more assertively hoppy and strong. Liked this one a lot. Another win for Floyds!
