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.

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.

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.
