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!

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.

Chudwick (1964) - Cincyucky, Kentucky, USA - SEP 28, 2012
draft - pours dark orange/light amber with thin off-white head. Nose is yeasty and hoppy (borderline pee). Pretty tasty but not what I would call a saison except for the wheat/yeast presence. Hides the 8.5% well.

fidelis83 (1901) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - FEB 9, 2013
Pours slightly hazy old gold with a thin soapy, off white head. Nice citrus in the nose up front, lots of spice, floral hops, floury grain, cereal, toast, hay, stone fruit and some slight funk. Flavor starts out with citrus, lots of yeast spiciness, stone, fruit, light minerality and a pretty healthy wallop of booze. Lightly slick palate on entry with a moderate, slightly sharp carbonaiton and a slightly boozy and astringent finish. Good stuff, but like most high abv Saisons, it could use a little less alcohol.

tastybeer (1666) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - SEP 12, 2012
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.

GranvilleTim (1467) - Granville, Illinois, USA - OCT 8, 2012
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.

arkurzynski (1459) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 13, 2012
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.

andyhwcinc (1426) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 11, 2012
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.
