Pours a beautiful glowing cloudy orange body with a bright white head forming thick in my new Tripel Karmeliet glass. Aroma has a big punch of citrus, and herbal spice, chalky yeast notes, and a touch of alcohol coming together. As I take my first initial sips, I get a strong assertive bitterness from the herbal chamomile, citrus peel edges, and strong long lasting spicy notes from the yeast. Bright citric notes initially followed by hints of bready sweetness all followed by a strong alcohol flavor, it was the last bottle available at Chalet Premier in North Lima, OH. Worth it to try it, sense I've been looking for this beer pretty much since they first brewed it. Mouthfeel was effervescent with sturdy carbonation medium bodied yet mellow and smooth nothing overbearing, a bit of alcohol warmth I welcomed along with a lasting spice/bitterness on the palate. Overall a truly tasty American brewed saison, which was definitely worth it. Will I revisit this one soon, probably not because I prefer the hoppy 3 Floyd's offerings.

22oz bomber poured into a white wine glass. Pours a bright, hazy golden orange with a sudsy white head.

Smells wonderful. Orange, pepper, and a slight mustiness. Hints of alcohol as well.

Spicy, funky, hints of citrus fruit, with an alcohol heat finish. Hints of banana after warming up a bit.

Prickly carbonation with a light to medium body.Slightly watery.

After writing my review, Ive started eating pizza with it and it enhances the spice of the pepperoni and crushed red pepper. This is light, easy to drink, with a spicy kick. Enjoy!

APPEARANCE: Cloudy orange color with some hazy yellow around the edges of the glass. A good two fingers of fluffy white foam following a medium pour. Head was slow to disappear, and left plenty of nice lacing on the glass til the last drop.

AROMA: Chamomile, Coriander, Wet Lawn, & Peppercorns. I also started to get some lemon & orange as the beer warmed up a bit.

TASTE: I’m getting wheat and light malts up front. Peppery notes, chamomile, and other spices (perhaps from the rock candy) aren’t far behind. There’s a very subtle sweetness near the back-end. I let the beer warm for about 10 minutes or so, and it really started to bring out some citrus flavors (mainly lemon and orange). The finish featured some coriander and yeasty flavors. Pretty refreshing.

MOUTHFEEL: Light to medium body with a fairly light carbonation for the style.

MOREY’S BOTTOM LINE: An above average Saison. That being said, I guess that I expected a bit more from FFF. It’s more of a peppery and spicy Saison, as opposed to the tart and funky ones that I’ve been drinking as of late. Well crafted, but it’s just a little tamer than I was anticipating. It’s worth a shot…but personally, I wouldn’t seek this one out.

22oz bottle opened on 5.14.12.

A - Pours a very cloudy, pale orange with a one finger cream-colored head that fades down pretty quickly.

S - Lemon, light Belgian yeast.

T - Tangy lemons and some subtle orange. Some slight yeast pokes through at the end.

D - Medium carbonation on an average body.

o - Nice subtle Belgian yeast and citrusy lemon. Perfect for a hot night.

Picked up this bottle at the last DLD. Pours a hazy light orange with a healthy off-white head. Carbonation was really nice, a ring of bubbles lingered in the glass till the last sip. Nice medium bodied beer. Had very prominent bready, banana yeasty characters in the aroma department. The first sip reinforced the smells lots of bread and banana. Very light hints of peppery spice on the tongue. Normally I like my Saison’s with more of that spiciness but this beer was really nice just the same. Wish I would have gotten 2 bottles instead of just the one.

A: Golden-yellow with crazy haze. Fluffy head that hangs around for a while. Little lace.

S: Like a Hefe. Bananas, pepper, clove. Is this a Hefe?

T: Pepper is there. This is a Hefe. Good but different and unexpected.

M: Smooth, tasty. Easy drinking.

O: Good beer but not a Saison at all. A Hefe!

22 oz bottle into a tulip glass.

Pours a clear copper with a couple fingers of rich bright-white head. This retains with a ½ finger cap of foam which leaves back a rich cascade of sticky lacing. The aroma smells quite flavorful, with notes of wheat, floral character, green earth, soft sticky fruit, some tartness, and a zippy feeling spicy presence in the nostrils. This is nice.

The taste has a crisp wheat base to it, with some softer fruit flavors working in (orange and banana seem to stick out), a smack of tart lemon, a light earthy bitterness, and a spicy dry finish. The mouthfeel is medium bodied, with a chewy creaminess on the tongue that spreads out into more of a sharp feel that prickles the mouth a bit. The alcohol here is very nicely hid for 7%+.

I’m glad that I finally sat down with a bottle of this, as it ending up being a rather tasty and easy sipping take on a Saison with a nice balance of malt, fruit, spice, and hops that kept this interesting to drink.

Poured 22 oz bomber into Duvel tulip.

RR pours a cloudy, golden color with about an inch of eggshell head. The head dissipates quite quickly, and leaves a good deal of stickiness on he sides of the glass. This beer is quite pungent: smells of the classic yeast odor, typical of the style. I'm not an expert in the style's nuances, but it has the banana/yeast flavor that is quite familiar. This is refreshing & enjoyable, if not as complex as their hoppier offerings. The mouthfeel is thin& highly carbonated. It leaves a bit of a prickly feeling on my tongue.

Overall: likeable. Glad that i tried this, but could go either way returning to it at the price point. Hard for me not to sample all of the 3F offerings!
