22oz bottle... Carbonation? Not really, no head or lace. Hazy copper color. Sweet fruit and floral aroma...blossoms...aroma is fairly mute though. Malty and somewhat sweet with an earthy herbal medicinal sort of bitterness. Alcohol shows up in the finish. Really, not very enjoyable...saison? sorry, just call this a spiced ale. It doesn’t come close to hitting the saison mark. Thanks Kevin, for giving me the chance to try this!

A fantastic saison. 3 Floyd’s can do very little wrong. Aromas of sour funk, citrus, bubblegum. Flavors are bubblegum, coriander, orange peel. Some sourness too. So well balanced. Awesome stuff.

wlajwl (4053) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - JUN 20, 2014
Aroma is Belgian yeast, spices and citrus. The flavor is spices, citrus, malts, slight heat and a tangy/slightly bitter finish. More traditional than I was expecting, pretty good but not great.

Very tasty and refreshing. This is the first Three Floyd beer I ever tasted straight from the the tap at the brew pub after it opened. Bought a case at Dark Lord Day and left very happy. Great summer beer. -- rated via 'Find A Beer' for Blackberry 10
