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!

Picked up a 22oz bottle from FFF brewery and poured into a stemmed wine glass. Slightly hazy golden amber in color with white frothy head. The aroma is dominated by fruity citrus hops and some green apple. The palate is sweet and malty, but not clawing. Overall the beer is sweet, citrusy and tart, but an increased carbonation level would help to cut some of the acidity.

Bottle bought in Copenhagen 2013. Hazy orange with a small head. Sweet with dried fruit, orange, light spices and malt. Not bad but maybe a bit old?

@Basunen: doftar inte mycket, lite gräs kanske. Kan vara för gammal. Lite maltig ton. God men kanske inte på topp. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone ---- Soberness not garanteed!

Hmmmm. Was skeptical about this one as I wouldn’t associate either of these breweries with the saison style but that was part of the allure as well as the hieroymus bosch meets robert crumb like label. Anyway lets start talking about the actual beer... pours a medium copper color with three fingers of sticky khaki foam. The nose is more of a barleywine... cornpop cereal, butterscotch, taffy and copper pennies. Hmmm. WTF, this has to be full of diacetyl infection after looking at other reviews there is no way I could pick anything close to traditional saison flavors... and it seems some people actually did get a saison in this bottle... butterscotch, copper pennies. Drainpour !
