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; 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.

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.

sherm1016 (1243) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 18, 2012
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.

thome50 (1228) - Morro Bay via Orange County, 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.

jbeatty (1197) - New York, USA - SEP 9, 2012
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?
