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!

22 oz bottle from the brewpub (Munster, IN). Capping off my weekend entirely filled with wedding stuff on the couch. Pours a rich amber orange hue, bigger haziness and darkness in the body. Growing glow on the edges of orange and gold, big cakey offwhite head sits atop, big cakey head sticks around well and laces pretty good. A darkness to the middle with inviting edges and bottom glow. Aromas are touches of straw and bready malts, pale with mellow touches of fruit. Apple, pear, bit of lemon and grass with a growing dry hoppiness. Touches of spice and yeast, dryness, and gentle sweetness, some American citrusy hops jump in at times. Mellow sweetness, a touch of melon. Gumball, and gentle grapefruit kiss. Initial jumps a bit more flavorwise than the nose let on, preaching citrus and fruit, melon and touches of tropical elements, oranges and grapefruit. Florals and bready malts, straw, and grass mix well with a growing fruity complex hop and fruity profile overall. Melon, citrus, not bracingly bitter but quite flavorful up front and into the middle. Some more bready and cereal elements into the backend, dry grass, gentle smooth crisp malts, fruit, and bitterness. Fairly clean, quite drinkable even at it’s ABV. I quite enjoyed this. The nose was more subtle overall but the flavors and palate experience, synergy really work for me. Crisp and cleaner finish without that spice or yeasty dominance is another thing that works for my personal tastes quite well. Looks quite good with a head that just looks like a photograph. Bitterness grows as we get further in. Just a really nice beer.

65 cl bottle @ PBF Ⅷ
Aroma is sweetish with apricot, biscuits, fruits and caramel. Flavour is rather strong on apricot, some fruity notes. Finishes with apricot, grassy notes and hints of peppery spices. Becomes even too strong on herbs and spices at the end of the glass. Not bad anyway.

thedm (4920) - Fort Wayne, USA - MAY 2, 2013
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a large sized head of all foam finely sized light brown colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a softly carbonated transparent dark orange brown colored body and an excellent lacing. The mild aroma was bready musty and malt hop. The mouth feel was very tingly at the start and at the finish. The strong flavor contained notes of semi-sweet whiskey vinous spices and hops. A wonderful best in class brew.
