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!

PhillyCraft (3642) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 9, 2012
On tap, pours hazy orange with white head, not much lacing. Aromas is tons of juicy and almost rotten fruits, like mango, honeydew, Tropical fruits, mango, bitter hops, a little boozey, tons of fresh fruits and some vegetable qualities, and melon. Awesome and interesting saison from 2 of top 3 brewers ever. Bring it on.

HonkeyBra (3625) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - SEP 6, 2012
22 oz. bottle from the brewpub. Pours a rich orange color with a thick white head. Aroma has a strong note of spruce and pine, a fair amount of citrus and a lot of grapefruit. There’s a big bready malt component that is robust, strong cereal notes as well as straw and earthy notes. Flavor is strong on the grapefruit hops, nice pine and grass hop notes rounding things out. The beer is certainly bold when it comes to hop presence, however has a certain apparent heft as well. The abv is somewhat present. The mouthfeel is full, finishes bitter. This is good, big, but good.

Crazy fruity. Smells like an orange lemon. Bright orange. Not a Saison fan but love this one. Super flavorful and enjoyable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

hazy orange, light cream head lasts. Zesty nose is light citrus, heavy pineapple with faint peach sweetness, honey then with warmth comes dum dum sweetness, probably the watermelon. Flavor is quite bitter, paper and orange up front with medicine and burn mid-finish. Wouldn’t have guessed saison.

Martinus (3441) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - JUL 31, 2013
Amber golden colour, white head. Aroma of citrus, light onion, apricot, peach, malts, fresh lemon, quite fruity. Bitter flavour, fruity, malts and hops. Great carbonation. Quite light body. Bitter finish, fruity, apricot and peach. Not quite a saison, but a nice beer nonetheless!
(From 66cL bottle @ ZZT-ish VIII / BBT I. Thanks for sharing, joes!)

NobleSquirrel (3438) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 13, 2012
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.

Pawola22 (3262) - Plainfield, Illinois, USA - SEP 16, 2012
22oz bottle from Binny’s Lakeview. Pours a cloudy, orange-gold colored body with a finger-width, dense, frothy and creamy, off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is pretty fruity up front with lots of tangerines and orange florals as well as a bit of a candied pineapple and grapefruit. Bready pale malts with a light sweetness, some straw, and just a touch of spicing. Flavor is similar. Creamy tangerines and oranges up front with candied pineapples and grapefruits. A light yeasty spicing with a bready, medium sweet malt backing. Sweeter resins, florals, and pines grow a bit towards the end as well as some yeasty spice before this finishes a bit sweet and really fruity with a light spicing and a dry, moderate bitterness. Lengthy aftertaste following a creamy, medium-full body and a soft, moderate carbonation. Overall, this was pretty enjoyable, but definitely didn’t drink like a saison. Lots of fruity, somewhat candied citrus hops, a light yeasty spice, and a sweet bready malt backing. Pretty hefty when it comes to the ABV%, but no hint of alcohol. I’m not the biggest fan of this, but it definitely has a FFF stamp on it when it comes to the hopping.

Bomber received as an extra in a trade. Thank you rfraga7! Limited rating due to most of my original rating being lost. Pours slightly hazy golden with a frothy white head that leaves some sticky lacing on the glass while dissipating. Smell is slightly sour and slightly fruity with crackers, lemon juice, dry soil, crackers, white pepper corns, lemon zest, hay, rubber and hints of barnyard. Taste is slightly bitter, tiny sour, tiny funky and slightly fruity with crackers, lemon juice, unripe tropical fruits, lemon zest, moist green herbs, pepper corns, dry soil, hay and hints of barnyard. Mouthfeel is slightly dry, tiny astringent and medium bodied. Finish is slightly sour and slightly bitter with crackers, unripe tropical fruits, hay, dry soil, pepper corns and lemon zest. A standard saison. Tasty but nothing fancy. Had hoped to give this a better rating but got enough to atleast write something.
