3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
22oz bottle pours a slightly hazy orange with some clumpy white head. Nose is bright orange peel, some soap, ladies deodorant, herbal. Flavor has a lot of orange pulp, some malt, some flower petals, herbal, radicchio, some lemoncello. Medium, dry, herbal finish. Kinda weird.

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.

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.

Slightly thick mouthfeel with an alcohol kick in the finish. Over medium bodied with soft carbonation. Nice, but not as good as expected.

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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle picked up in WIcker Park. Pours a hazed pale gold with a big, fluffy offwhite head. Nose is somewhat subdued, herbal hops, faint white pepper, restrained yeast. Resin and pilsner malt. On tasting, some light vanilla and medium bitterness. Clean overall. Malt forward with a hint more of fruit. Faint pepper again. Nice enough beer but not a particularly wonderful saison.
