Poured from a 22 oz bottle adorned with Three Floyds' unmistakable distinctive cover art, featuring a giant angry rabbit throttling the crap out of a scared gnome. Served in an oversized pint glass.
Pours a cloudy straw yellow, with hints of gold/green, starting with a one inch head that leaves moderate lacing around the sides.
Smell is quite herby, with oregano, chamomile, sage, celery, hints of basil -- this brew is herbed to the max! Pepper and oak notes round out this brew's complex, bold aroma.
Taste is, like everything 3F does, is laced with abundant hops, but there is a distinctive floral, peppery spice taste. In some respects, it is like a hoppy, peppery herbal tea of a beer, with notes of lemon, and allspice. Malt is also present, with a rye cracker crispness that gves this a bit of heft. Finishes with a hint of mild bitter that is not overpowering.
Mouthfeel is zesty, medium bodied, with a crisp, tangy tart balanced by a hot, peppery feel that prevents this from being a "refreshing" farmhouse ale.
This beer is all over the place; not as funky as a typical saison, not as yeasty as a wheat beer, not as pure hoppy as an IPA, but instead is a mixture of the three, and more, with its peppery notes. Certainly a decent beer, but not one of my favorite 3F beers - though that is no knock, since it would be like saying this isn't one of my favorite classic Corvettes. I definitely recommend it, if just to try it, though I would not list it as a go-to 3F beer for me.

Certainly darker than straw this Saison had a deep apricot hue with a foamy meringue like head.
The nose is spicy, clove and peppercorns, with a bit of bready malt. I can sense some fruity Apple and pear but it's subtle and overwhelmed by a tangy vinegar.
The flavors are spicier than the nose but I still get a sense of the bready malt. Tangy vinegar, wine like alcohols, diminished Apple and pear with a bit of barn yard funk all mix for a lighter less tasteful farmhouse ale.
The feel is very warm for the style and with 7pct ABV that is unusual.
This is a decent rendition of the style but perhaps it left me begging for more fruit and less spice.
