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!

shrubber85 (7290) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - OCT 5, 2012
Bottle. Orange, peach, grapefruit, and musty malt aroma. Cloudy golden yellow with large white head. Sweet orange malt and moderately bitter herbal flavor. Not a bad beer - very sweet for a saison.

Benzai (7218) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUN 14, 2013
Bottle @ Sticky floor tasting II thanks to Chris H (allesmetkaas). A bit unclear orange color, small off-white head. Aroma has lightly malts, lightly hops, yeast. Taste lightly malts, hops, lightly alcohol and a bit yeasty. A touch of bitter towards the end. Honestly this a a disappointment. Balanced, but I expected more.

crossovert (6927) - Illinois, USA - SEP 4, 2012
Hazy orangeish gold pour. Head quickly dissipates with no lacing. Smell is sweet, nice hoppy scents, tropical fruit, citrus, some bubblegum. Really IPA like with a hint of yeastiness. The flavor is goood. Melon, tropical, citrus, candylike malt, slight white wine, sweet but not overpowering. A slight touch of booze in the finish. A tasty brew. An example of the proper way to do a collaboration beer. And btw the label is freaking hilarious and awesome.

deyholla (6481) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - OCT 7, 2012
Bottle. Pouts a hazy deep gold with a white head that dissipates slowly to the edges and laces. Aroma has a good amount of citrus with some light fruit, grain and light spice. Flavor starts with some bitter citrus that mellows to allow some light fruit and light spice to come out.

phaleslu (6204) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 12, 2012
22 oz. bottle shared by Jason- thanks a ton, man! You guys crushed my wants list last night. I owe the STL crew big time. Pours a hazy orange color with a small white head. Aroma is heavy on oranges and tangerines, then mango, straw, funk, bread, and herbs. The flavor is dry up front with sawdust and herbs, and gives way to the tangerine and mango fruitiness, along with floral hops, bread and funk. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a fruity, floral, woody mouthfeel. Really unique saison.

BBB63 (5941) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - OCT 17, 2012
Bomber bottle and served in an Unibroue tulip: Pours a deep golden honey hue with an initial huge head which left very good lace upon the glassware The aroma as notes of biscuit, pils, honey, aromatic and crystal mats along with grains of paradise and oregano spice vapours, light to moderate grassy and citric hop esters. The taste is similar to the nose, malty yet not sweet with a noticeable spicy midesection and finish embraced by even handed bitterness, ever present citric notes lets you know this is not an olde word Saison. My only real complaint is the noticeable presence of alcohol which reduces the refreshment factor often found in the genre. Lively crisp and biting mouthfeel, yeah it is a Floyds take on Saison. I would drink this again.

650 ml bottle @ PBF 2013.
Pours a cloudy copper amber colour with a white head. Aroma of sweet orange, grapefruit, yeast and some lemon juice. Flavour of strong floral hops, sweet caramel, strong grapefruit, lemon juice, pungent citrus, herbs and hay. Medium bodied, thick mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Good stuff.

mcberko (5919) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 7, 2013
22 oz. bottle, pours a cloudy orange with a small white head. Aroma is full of fruity notes (tropical fruits), some Belgian yeast and candied sugar. Flavour brings out mounds of tropical fruits (pineapple, mangos), resinous hops, and bitter zesty hops. Full of flavour, especially tropical fruits and zesty resinous hops. Not a traditional saison by any means, but for what it is, it’s wonderful.
