On tap, pours hazy orange with white head, not much lacing. Aromas is tons of juicy and almost rotten fruits, like mango, honeydew, Tropical fruits, mango, bitter hops, a little boozey, tons of fresh fruits and some vegetable qualities, and melon. Awesome and interesting saison from 2 of top 3 brewers ever. Bring it on. TheAlum (7164) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - AUG 29, 2012
22 oz bottle from the brewpub (Munster, IN). Capping off my weekend entirely filled with wedding stuff on the couch. Pours a rich amber orange hue, bigger haziness and darkness in the body. Growing glow on the edges of orange and gold, big cakey offwhite head sits atop, big cakey head sticks around well and laces pretty good. A darkness to the middle with inviting edges and bottom glow. Aromas are touches of straw and bready malts, pale with mellow touches of fruit. Apple, pear, bit of lemon and grass with a growing dry hoppiness. Touches of spice and yeast, dryness, and gentle sweetness, some American citrusy hops jump in at times. Mellow sweetness, a touch of melon. Gumball, and gentle grapefruit kiss. Initial jumps a bit more flavorwise than the nose let on, preaching citrus and fruit, melon and touches of tropical elements, oranges and grapefruit. Florals and bready malts, straw, and grass mix well with a growing fruity complex hop and fruity profile overall. Melon, citrus, not bracingly bitter but quite flavorful up front and into the middle. Some more bready and cereal elements into the backend, dry grass, gentle smooth crisp malts, fruit, and bitterness. Fairly clean, quite drinkable even at it’s ABV. I quite enjoyed this. The nose was more subtle overall but the flavors and palate experience, synergy really work for me. Crisp and cleaner finish without that spice or yeasty dominance is another thing that works for my personal tastes quite well. Looks quite good with a head that just looks like a photograph. Bitterness grows as we get further in. Just a really nice beer. larsniclas (7078) - Billdal, SWEDEN - JUN 15, 2013

Aroma is piney/grapefruit hops and an undercurrent of spicy yeast. The flavor is grapefruit, tropical fruit, an undercurrent of mildly sweet malts, spices and a bitter/tart finish. ekstedt (6790) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUN 20, 2013
Bottle (bomber), courtesy of _angst_. Clear deep golden, medium off-white head. Fruity, earthy, and floral aroma with marzipan and almond. Light to medium bodied, medium carbonation. Dry, low to medium bitterness. Beerman6686 (6607) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 25, 2013
This one poured a hazy light yellow color with a white head. Aroma was fruity esters and hops, some belgian spicey notes, and the bready citrus hops 3 floys smell. Flavor was refeshing, althoguh a bit sweeter than I was expecting, but good balance of spice, sugar and hops. Another solid 3Floyds beer.
