Hazy orange with a small head. Sweet with dried fruit, orange, light spices and malt. Not bad but maybe a bit old?

Bottle provided by Thorpe429, thanks Michael! Poured a yellow-orange color, touch of haze in this one. Small fizzy head. Aroma was orange and some lemon citrus notes. Taste was light citrus. Touch of spice, but not really that farmhouse/barn notes that I was expecting.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
65 cl. bottle sampled @ Kraddel does 1K tasting. Procured by Kraddel. Cheers. Golden amber with little white head. Nose is huge on hops, USA, pine, big hay, lots of spices, big pepper, spicy yeast and quite rustic, nice. Taste is surprisingly bitter, very bitter hay, feels like there is quite a lot of old world hops in here as well, Eastern-EU?, grass, lots of barn, very big hay, huge raw spicy yeast, very lingering, grass, light zest, pepper, huge ester. Lovely but so harsh that it is almost hard to drink a glass, let alone a 22 oz. Ridiculously dry body. Quite lovely.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This one poured a hazy light yellow color with a white head. Aroma was fruity esters and hops, some belgian spicey notes, and the bready citrus hops 3 floys smell. Flavor was refeshing, althoguh a bit sweeter than I was expecting, but good balance of spice, sugar and hops. Another solid 3Floyds beer.

4.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
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.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
22oz bomber bought at the brewery. Wow. This beer is phenomenal. Murky orange-red body, big steady, creamy off-white head. Has the dry funked up hoppiness of a Saison but with the bonus tropical tones, NZ style. Absolutely nails the style, and improves on it. Delicate and soft on the palate despite the big ABV. So much melon hop flavor. One of my favorite beers Iíve had recently for sure, FFF is really on fire. Even at 10 a bomber, I wish I had picked up a few of these. Expected it to be good, but itís great.
