HonkeyBra (4044) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - SEP 7, 2013
22 oz. bottle. Pours a deep reddish orange with a medium full head. Aroma is bready, yeasty, with pineapple and grapefruit in the nose. Touches of apple cake, caramel, and hay. Flavor is nice, tropical fruit hops with slight caramel and hazy, yeast. Touches of bread dough and cake, fair amount of hoppiness. Fluffy, pillowy body. Pretty nice.

Spicy imperial saison, sweet with some dryness. Decent beer bot not really my style.

ryecatcher (1474) - Bridgeport, Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 27, 2013
Bomber. Pours a hazy, medium amber, white head with so-so retention (could be my glass though). Nose is candied oranges, caramel and a whole lotta malt. Mouth is medium-dry and bitter up front, malty caramel backbone, oranges, grapefruit, peach, fresh mown hay, lemongrass and more bitterness on the back end. I gotta be honest, I wasn’t as keen on this one as I have been with other 3F’s saisons.

TheAlum (7164) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - AUG 26, 2013
22 oz bottle picked up from the brewery (Munster, IN). Opened on the couch with the Mrs. Neate. Pours a darker than expected amber hue, well hazed and darker glow, orange elements throughout the body. Quite well hazed almost some burnt orange, big cakey beige head atop stays as a firm layer, cakey, sticks around well. Decent lacing through the experience, mellow carbonation. Aromas show a melange of fruit and crusty bread, bready malt and oranges. Some citrusy grapefruit, florals and grass. Gentle yeastiness, some gentle carmelization and sweeter malt elements. Firmy hoppy as it warms and settles a bit more. Some grapefruit juice, rind, and gumball. A touch sweet, almost toasty at times. Straw, dry earthy hops. Ok. Initial shows a firm bitter hopping up front, grapefruit rind and florals, bigger dry bitter florals, green hops with a mellow resinous quality flowing a bit as it hits. Quickly some powder, oranges, dough. Some bready malts, gentle yeastiness and spice. Dry and fluffy, the body feels like it should be a touch more girthy. Middle picks it up a bit, apples and a gentle carmelization/toasty crusty quality. Some dryness, more yeast, earthy bitter hops meets sweeter dough, fruity apple, gentle pear. That bready element kicks on, carmelized and sweet at times, dry and yeasty at other. It starts to break away as more of a sweeter Belgian base with a good firm hopping as we hit the backend. Finish is firmly dry, a touch toasty and yeasty. Some decent fruit presence. At times this beer works, at times it doesn’t. I think I’d prefer a smaller maltbill, richer hop presence with just a bit of Saison yeast. Instead, what we seem to get is a distinctly yeast and Belgian bordering beer with a maltbody that can holds it own again a firm, albeit not dominant hop profile (Perhaps in brief flashes). A bit sweet at times, a bit yeasty at some, but at others pretty fulfilling. Solid. Probably overrated it by .1
