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!

22oz bottle from Antioch Fine Wine and Spirits, split with my wife. Pours a bright, amber color with a white head and some lacing. Aroma is a little bready, but mainly hoppy, citrus, grapefruit. Medium on the palate with average carbonation. Flavor is sweet, cereal, a little bitter, grassy hops, with a light bitter finish. A pretty decent beer, but not much of a saison in my opinion.

UPDATED: SEP 12, 2012 Bottle, 09/09/2012. Pours cloudy dark orange, thin white head, thin soapy lacing. Aroma of thick buttermilk bread, yeast, light spices, vanilla, mild earthy bitterness. Hops, though not much present in the nose, burst forward in the taste, citrus and grapefruit, bready malts underneath with spicy finish, bitter fruity aftertaste. Dense body, high carbonation. Well, alright, but I expected a bit more from these two brewers. Re-rate from second bottle 09/12/2012- Aroma much improved, lots of pineapple, mango, citrus, hops much more evident to help make the whole thing more cohesive. Maybe some bottle variation?

thome50 (1003) - Boringville aka Irvine, California, USA - DEC 17, 2013
Pours a deep orange to brown with white head. Aroma of fruit and malty hops. Taste is fruity caramel forward. No funk. Odd for a saison.

HighWine (950) - Whalezbro, Illinois, USA - AUG 30, 2012
Tap at the brewpub, served in a tulip. Translucent Amber-apricot color pour with a sticky white head. It actually forms an Alpha King crown lace on the glass! Aroma of dried apricot and cut grass. Taste is sweet malt with citrus rind, and a real Earthy quality. Pretty fucking delicious. Full Mouthfeel that coats the tongue leaving you feel like you just sipped heavy cream. A little boozy but so quite good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dark cloudy honey color. Huge head with the aroma of a barnyard. Thick mouth. Taste is very malty. Some bitterness and grapefruit in the finish. Pretty easy drinking.

Not much in the way of aromas. Fruity Belgian and American hop flavors. Overall very good collaboration.

22 oz. bottle pours a hazy orange with lumpy white head and good lacing. Smells like a Three Floyds brew with floral and citrus hops, although subdued.. Aroma is full of melon, honeysuckle, peach,and pineapple with a modest malt backbone. Body is medium with average carbonation. Mouthfeel is sticky and taste is sweet with a clean dry finish and noticeable alcohol. An interesting take on a saison, and the best of this style I’ve tried - much better than FFF Rabbid Rabbit

Had on tap the source. Served in a stemmed tulip. A: Pours a semi clear amber color with a thick white head forming on the pour. It’s about one finger in height and it recedes slowly leaving behind sticky sheets of lace. S: The citris hop profile on the nose really jumps out at you with some orange and lemon zest as well. Sweet Belgian yeast cuts through on the back end with some refined malts. T: Spicy belgian yeast, with a little bit of pepper and clove, is up front. Nice grassy hops and citrus zest with a semi-bitter grapefruit pith on the finish. Sweet malt body. Well hidden booze for 8.5% M: Medium bodied with a little heft to it. Great prickly carbonation with a drying finish. O: A well crafted saison with a little body to it. Obviously I’d like it a little lighter to make it a little more easy drinking, but the flavor profile gets you past that. Definitely recommed for any saison fan.
