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.

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.

Maybe the best saison I have had, but one for a hop lover for sure (go figure, it is from 3 Floyds). Aroma is complex, not just hoppy and citrusy, but earthy tones with some bananaish type notes. Very different. Palate is thick and full finishing dry. Flavor is sweet and lasting. I am pretty impressed with this one.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle sent to me by a very gracious local. Pours a hazy gold and copper colour with a active white head that recedes down to an almost film with a lot of lacing (and I mean a LOT). Nose is of many different tropical fruits, mango, grapefruit, passion fruit. Three Floyds really have their hopping down pat. Tastes quite bitter and sweet, a caramel like flavour too. Super smooth, possible Belgian yeast. This is reminisent of an IPA, and definetley for the hop lover. Really awesome.

Murky bronze color...juicy fruit nose with an emphasis on pineapple and peaches. Nice carbonation...taste mirrors the nose with some additional herbal notes, including mint, to be noted. Fantastic brew.

I havenít rated in a long time, but this was worth rating. On tap at the Bristol in Chicago. Looked great, smelled great, tasted great. Much hoppier than your average saison, not as refreshing but still damn good. Excellent carbonation, smooth drinking, boozy. Floral, no wet hay.
