22oz bomber. Pours a murky orange color with a large white head. Huge tropical dry hopped aroma. Thick pineapple, pale malt, hint of pepper. Taste has a big hop bitterness and is peppery, with some delicious pineapple and grapefruit notes.

Draft. Hazy dark gold pour, small white head. No retention/some lace. Aroma of big pineapple/orange/floral hops, spicy yeast. Taste is quite malty, sweet, nice floral/pineapple hop bitterness, fruity esters, big creamsicle. Palate is full, bitter, slick.
Note: The bottle of this was very oxidized, smell/taste of rotten apple. This rating refers to the draft version.

Bottle thanks to Kevin. Musty hoppy nose. Taste is similar to a Belgian IPA with a farmhouse mustiness. Very smooth body. Easy to drink. Sweet.

Cloudy amber pour with an off-white head. Aroma is melon and pineapple hops. Some spiciness. Taste is dry, melon, spicy. The flavor reminds me a little of a honey dew melon. Best saison I have had- 3 Floyds signatur hops make it so.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from brewpub. Deep orange in color with copious white head. Deep spiced tropical fruit, mango, peach, light apple, and moderate pine. Flavor starts mildly sweet with mango and peach and then dries out nicely with pine and tropical fruit bitterness. Well-attenuated with some lingering skunky pine and fruit.

Pours a gorgeous glowing orange with a light haziness whispering through it. Grapefruit, tangerine in the nose with a nice spicy hoppiness. Creamy mouthfeel, zesty fruit in the flavor pops nicely and is complimented by more spicy hops and a sweet maltiness. Tangy dry finish. Tasty saison that drinks like an IPA.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Purchased at In Fine Spirits in Chicago, IL after going to the dentist, enjoyed on a nice, cool mid-fall evening. Appearance is a very cloudy, bright orange/ruby red with a rich white head that laces to the glass. Aroma of spice, lemon peel, Belgian yeast, mango, definitely rich in tropical fruits. Taste goes down slightly bitter with pronounced fruit/lemon notes, finishes dry, pretty good stuff with noticeable complexities.

Bottle; Pour is fairly clear dark gold with an average off white head in this glass - retention is on the average side - with some sticky lacing present here. Another FFF Belgian - never a good start at this point. However - it’s an interesting one because it embraces was FFF does (american hops) - i would call it a Saison / IIPA Hybrid. Unfortunately there’s a cat urine note on the nose ; dried apricots, pine, pineapple, and pear juice. What it doesn’t have, which I’ve come to expect, is the feeling of a Belgian from the barnyard side of things. The flavor profile reminds a bit of a Dreadnaught lite (pine, grapefruit, caramel) with more tropical notes present. The spicing fuses with the breadiness fairly well - Insane art on the bottle - props for it
