COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Now this is a saison! This refreshing Belgian-style ale is the combined effort of Three Floyds and De Molens 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!

Bottle shared by hopicide, thanks for the opportunity. Clear gold nose of pepper and spice, sweet sugary malt, nice saison.

@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!

Shared by Thorpe429. Thanks Mike. The beer is orange with a small white head. The aroma brings hops and citrus followed by a sturdy malt backbone. Good flavor, though a bit sweet and syrupy. Oranges soaked in alcohol. Hoppy finish with lingering bitter citrus. Not really a saison, in my opinion, but tasty nonetheless. Good stuff.

Bottle. Fresh pink grapefruit, honey, and musty aroma. Honey gold with a large ivory head, thick lacing. Syrupy sweet honey malt, subtle citrus peel, dry bitter herbal/spice flavor. Full body..

I was not sure how to approach a saison from Three Floyds. My memory of Rabid Rabbit still lingers as a bit of a mess. Obviously this recipe worked out much better. If bottles make it to the central part of the state I may have to grab another one.

Aroma / Appearance - The hazy orange base looks like orange marmalade. An ivory head rests on top timidly. Sweet apples, pears, and yeast stick out though lacking is that trademark over the top hops profile. Instead this one is more subdued though still evident.

Flavor / Palate - Apple skins, cotton candy, and an earthy hay base meld to form an experience that is well planned. The texture hangs in the back of the throat where the hops emerge strongest. I would love to try the De Molen version if it doesnt cost an arm and a leg.

NobleSquirrel (3438) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 13, 2012
Bottle picked up in WIcker Park. Pours a hazed pale gold with a big, fluffy offwhite head. Nose is somewhat subdued, herbal hops, faint white pepper, restrained yeast. Resin and pilsner malt. On tasting, some light vanilla and medium bitterness. Clean overall. Malt forward with a hint more of fruit. Faint pepper again. Nice enough beer but not a particularly wonderful saison.

Pours a hazy deep amber. Aroma: fantastic with caramel, peach, spices and hints of smoke. Taste is similar with peach, honey, caramel with light smoky tones. Very very good!! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

Bouteille 22oz, courtoisie de Johnsense. De couleur ambre et voile. Nez de levures fruites (raisins blancs ferments, notes de fruits tropicaux, de poires vertes et dagrumes) aux notes pices (poivre doux) et terreuses, moyen de pain, lger de grains de malt sucrs et de houblon floral aux notes herbeuses et citriques ainsi quavec des notes dalcool. Moyennement ronde en bouche avec un ptillement moyen ainsi quune texture aux notes crmeuses. Got moyen-amer et asschant (une amertume prsente en arrire-got toute la gorge) semblant provenir la fois de houblon floral et citrique (pamplemousse, pomelo) ainsi que de levures fruites et terreuses (agrumes, traces de pches) lors de lentre en bouche auquel se rajoute un moyen got de levures pices (poivre, faibles traces de clou de girofle) avec des notes de crales sucres et de pain. Paralllement, lon retrouve un lger-moyen got dalcool rchauffant (incluant de faibles traces de sirop contre la toux) jusquen finale, o lamertume de houblon se fait lgrement herbeuse. Post-got long et sec, moyen-amer de houblon floral, lgrement citrique et herbeux avec un got de levures fruites et assez terreuses (zeste dagrumes) ainsi quavec un lger got dalcool et dpices (poivre doux).
