22oz bottle from the Three Floyds brew pub (Munster, IN). 10.00. No bottling info but this is a March release. Served in a Terrapin goblet.

Pours a hazy golden straw yellow with a finger and a half near white head. Fades quickly and leaves almost no lace.

Smells musty, earthy, yeasty with a little bit of spiced fruit.

A sweet honey note leads the taste and fades in and out of the other flavors of hay, pepper, bannana, apple, flower pedal, musty yeast, vague citrus, grassy, earthy spice and a little kick of booze. An interesting blend.

Medium, approaching full body with faint carbonation. Slightly syrupy with a musty sweet dry finish.

I'm pretty sure I can count in one hand the saisons I've tried but this one stands out as different. Sweeter, thicker and less carbonated than I expect. Still enjoyable to me.

Pours hazy yellowish orange with a bubbly single finger head. Funky Belgian smell, some straw, some orange. Taste is a lot like the smell, lots of Belgian yeast, some sweet orange, dry straw, slight hop presence. The texture is nice, good carbonation, not too thin. Overall I really liked this for a warm day, it's got some funk, nice Belgian yeast taste, slight sweetness, but does leave a dry bitter aftertaste.

Having never heard of Rabbid Rabbit, this will be a fun review. I love everything I have had from FFF so far, and I am very curious how a saison will be from them.

A- An aggressive pour from a 22oz bomber leads to virtually no head. Beer pours a slightly hazy dark gold almost orange, but with only a wisp of an offwhite head. No retention and spotty lacing. Weakest saison I have ever seen. Might have a flat dud here. Review as is though.

S- Moist, spicy funk with Belgian yeast. Papayas come to mind. Slight herb and peppery phenols. Odor is strong, but more musty than crisp. Doesn't seem to resemble that of most saisons that I have had.

T- Interesting. Doesn't seem to follow the nose all that well, but I'm not real sad about it. Some of the spice remains, but a lot of tart pleasantly comes through. Apples flavor. Smooth with a warm phenolic layer in the throat. More complex than nose indicates. Hops are more subtle than expected. Sweet for the style. Saison...no. Tasty...yes.

M- Again, shocked at the mild, check that...its basically absent. Have to knock the rating due to the style. Tends to drink a little heavier because of it.

O- Taste was really quite nice and not indicative of the rating. Really surprised that a brewery of this quality would miss so badly on some of the key components of the style. Not that it was a bad beer (it wasn't), it is just a poor example of a saison.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3.25

Appearance - Hazy gold color. Less than a 1/2 finger of light foam head remains after a minute. Splotchy lacing.

Smell - Immediately got straw and some hints of white grape.

Taste - Straw, yeast, malt, little bit of funk, little bit of spice. Unique, but not really my thing.

Mouthfeel - Medium body, medium carbonation, funky aftertaste

Overall - It was significantly better (and fresher) on draft at Dark Lord Day. This bottle wasn't that great. I'd drink it again if someone offered me a taste, but it's definitely not worth $10/bomber to me.
