4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
rabbid rabbit is the easter beer par excellence! a delicious and complex saison ale that reeks of flowers and spices and the esters that lurk therein...notes of rich butter, sugar cookies, rose-hips, lavender, chamomile, gingerbread, and cinnamon can clearly be discerned by my novice nostrils(at least now that iíve read a proper description of the mysterious adjuncts!)...flavor is nicely balanced between the candy sweetness upfront and the muted, spicy hop finish...color is a gorgeous golden hue(especially in natural sunlight!) and the mouth-feel both satisfying and refreshing...i never would have guessed the alcohol content by the taste(the resultant buzz speaks volumes however...)

Lovely, luminescent amber/orange color, head is a tight 1/4 carpet of whitish fuzz, and thereís active carbonation, bubbles rising perennially, a ripe appearance.
Warm, beatiful spices greet the nose immediately, is it cinnamon, aniseed, clove? Coriander, cardamom, lavender? Iím not so sure, nor does it matter, it feels most like pumpkin pie, or gingerbread cookies, or mulled cider, you could be at Grandmaís house on Thanksgiving Day with this beer and not know which is which.
I pull my snoot out of the glass and drink at last...bold, bright, brisk hops storm the palate, buzz the tongue, set it stirring. Malt is luscious, and hops are high, lasting long in the mouth. Flavor is fantastic and in copious supply. Iím utterly enamored of this beer!
I had some Dupont before this, reacquainting myself after too long with this classic exemplar of the saison style, and eager to compare the two. There is no comparison, two different animals altogether, the Rabbit owning a unique claim on a particular spice blend, and possessing a fruity profile that goes beyond the citric character of so many others.
Yum. I feels so fine, fresh and fruity in the mouth, with each new swallow, and then the spicy kick rushes in, and itís just an extraordinary sensation!
Iím going to relax with this one, and pretend like I deserve it!
Itís that kind of brew!

Strong beer with a cloudy look to it. Tastes strongly like bananas with some grapefruit. Definitely a sweet beer. Worth checking out.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: APR 30, 2006 Another incredible offering from Floyds! I tried this at the brewery adn was told that it was a year old batch that was just recently put back on tap. My only knock was the level of carbonation. Otherwise the beer was bery true to style. Teh beer poured very blonde and you are immediately hit with the signature belgian aroma of sweet bubblegum and floral. The beer is extremly well balanced. The spicing is not overpowering (coriander, orange peel and chamomille sp?)and melds well with the crisp mouthfeel of the beer. I was surprised to find that the beer was fairly true to style without the signature 3Fís over-the-top hoppiness.
Rerate: A bit over-the-top in the spice category. Not as mellow as the previous years
Rerate: Balance has returned and will put this as one of my goto beers. Hints of lavender with a delicate floral flavor and aroma predominating. Very nice.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Enjoyed on tap at Romanís Pub in Milwaukee, WI before my band played a show in the area that night. Maybe this was ultra fresh or something, because from the ratings I was really surprised, as this was most excellent. Appearance a vibrant, cloudy orange with a rich white head, looks like a beer mimosa. Aroma light with a hint of spice, also a touch of wild yeast and I want to say lemon grinds, very very nice. Taste very light and refreshing, grassy with a smooth mouthfeel. Iím tasting orange peel, some type of flowery/tea like substance, a hint of banana, doesnít taste like it was brewed in an industrial park. Quintessential for spring/fall. One of the more impressive beers Iíve had for sure.

UPDATED: MAY 23, 2008 Tap: 5-30-06 Brilliant copper, nice white head. Huge aroma, citrus and earthy bitterness. Flavor has all kinds of floral, herbal, spice, faint wheat and pale malt character through the middle. Finishes, with an earthy dryness. well done. Courtesy of BBB63. Pours light brown with no head, (hand bottled). Lots of floral character in the aroma (not hoppy though), what I was told is chamomile. Flavor has lots of spice, clove, maybe cinnamon? with the same floral character and some sweet malt in the background. Really enjoyed this brew. (4)

UPDATED: MAR 21, 2013 Pour is hazy glowing yellow-orange. No lacing or head. Perfect amount of carbonation for a saison. Aromas of chamomile, pepper, spanish cedar, gruit. Taste is lemon orange crush fizz pop with earthy honey skunk tones, accompanied by flavors of peach tobacco, and black tea. Finishes delicious, peppery bite on tongue and refreshing lime aftertaste. Three Floyds doing it again.

Iím glad that I finally sat down with a bottle of this, as it ending up being a rather tasty and easy sipping take on a Saison with a nice balance of malt, fruit, spice, and hops that kept this interesting to drink.
