2nd 3F Beer I've ever had. 22 Oz. Bomber

A - Cloudy, somewhat dense yellow-orange color with little to no head, very, very bubbly.

S - Nice nose for style, spicy, lemon zest scents.

T - Spice flavor up front with some banana and clove, nice spice, yet still crisp and refreshing.

M - Very carbonated, nice mouth-feel.

O - Solid beer, would drink again, but highly overpriced at $10 per bomber. Not a huge fan of Saison ales but it was a nice change up and the anticipation of 3F beer always makes for a good time. It is definitely not your typical ale and has some distinguished flavors, well worth a try.

look: 3.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.5

Serving type: 22 oz. bottle, poured into snifter.

A: Hazy gold, not much head, *very* light lacing.

S: Almost none. If I sniff really hard I can smell peaches somewhere in the distance.

T: Not like any saison I've ever had -- no fruit, no tartness, and all the wrong sort of spicing. That would be okay if I liked the taste (I'd just stop thinking of it as a saison and enjoy it for what it was), but I don't; the spice tastes almost like black pepper, which I like, but not in beer.

M: Pleasant enough in its own right but too thick and heavy for a saison. Very low carbonation.

O: Disappointing. I like some of Three Floyds' other beers but this one just doesn't do it for me. It's not a saison, it doesn't know what it wants to be instead, and whatever it is, I don't care for it.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

A: Hazy pale yellow in color. Forms a smallish, bubbly, white head that reduces fairly quickly to just the faintest ring around the edge. No lacing.

S: Smell is interesting. Fruity. Very fruity, but more like a fruity pebbles or juicy fruit than anything resembling actual fruit. Maybe a bit of peach or apricot. Sweet. Bubblegum.

T: Taste is a blend of mild sweetness and mild tartness with a good dose of spice. Almost reminiscent of baking spice (clove, nutmeg), but the apricot fruitiness balances it out.

M: On the lighter side of medium. Spicy on the tongue. Low bitterness. Lower carbonation.

O: Not so sure about this one. Not necessarily a bad beer, but in terms of Saisons and Farmhouses, there are a lot better beers out there at a lot better price.

A-Cloudy yellow orange, nice carbonation, one finger head that doesn't last.

S-Orange and lemon, chamomile, thyme tad bit of wheat.

T-Very grassy with herbal spices. Must be the chamomile. Not much bitterness, some wheat.

M-Light some carbonation and a nice dryness to the finish.

O-Balance isn't where it should be, the chamomile is too dominate.

2.75/5  rDev -27.1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 1.75 | overall: 2.75

Appearance: Pours a virtually opaque orange-yellow with over three fingers of fluffy white foam.

Smell: Light banana esters from the yeast and bottle-conditioning, peppery spice, a bit musty and somewhat sweet. Overall, fairly faint and unimpressive.

Taste: Herbal spiciness and subtle fruitiness. Not sure if its just from reading the description but I do get hints of rock candy sugar. Has a spicy sweet alcoholic finish.

Mouthfeel: Light-bodied, fairly thin, and surprisingly low carbonation.

Overall, I really did not care for this beer. It's labeled a saison but it doesn't feel like one to me. I found it to be overly spicy and lacking in fruitiness/tartness (both of which are characteristic of saisons). The low carbonation was also very strange and unappealing and probably the worst thing about this beer. It's brewed with rock candy and chamomile, which I found interesting but ultimately the flavors don't mesh well and the resulting brew is disappointing. I would never buy this again and I frankly I wouldn't even recommend it, especially at an inflated $11 a bottle.

3.56/5  rDev -5.6%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

A: Completely opaque with haze - sunburst orange/gold. An oddly minimal white head considering the style - very slight, wispy retention.

S: Very, very sweet biscuit. Slightly spicy from the belgian yeast and coriander. Other nuances of sweet orange peel and lemon zest. Kind of an odd smelling saison

T: Similar to the aroma - sweet biscuit, some belgian and citrus spice, and very subtle must and funk.

P: Creamy, smooth, soft carbonation - does not really fit; again, feels odd.

O: This style is not a strong one for floyds. I loved zes zes zes, but it was a floyds take on the style - super hopped up and unique.
