Thanks to MordorMongo for this one.

A: Pours out very cloudy, colored like a slightly oranger apple juice. Lots of bubbles on the inside of the glass and rising through the liquid, but not much of a head forms and it dissipates to a ring quickly. Not the most appealing looking glass of beer I've seen.

S: Classic Belgian ester profile, aromas of apple, light spices, some mushroom, very mild phenols.

T: Toffee malts, candi sugar, fruity apple. Lightly bitterness finish brings a medicinal note that doesn't mesh well with the rest.

M: On the full-bodied end for a saison with slightly prickly carbonation.

O: I'm always happy to try something new from 3F, but this seems like a bit of a dud for them. Perhaps the style is just not their forte.

Poured from a 22oz bomber into a Stella Artois chalice

A- A murky gold. Very hazy. Has a fat white frothy and bubbly head that lingers and leaves a thick laceing on the sides of the glass. Visible carbonation despite the haziness.
S- Sweet. Yeasty and estery with strong notes of pair. A fruity mustiness is apparent near the end. Almost slightly woody.

T- Starts off sweet and slightly fruity and leads into a slight maltiness. Ends with the sweat yeastiness that comes with Belgians. Just slightly sour near the end. Leaves a lingering sweet and sour tartness in the mouth. Slightly spicy. Also leaves a spiciness lingering in the back of the throat along with the tartness.
M- Light to medium bodied. I wouldn’t necessarily describe it as crisp, but I also wouldn’t describe it as thick or anything either. Noticeable bit from carbonation right away and then again slightly at the end.
O- Very drinkable and nice and sweet. The spiciness is a nice touch to the end. Not to blown away by it. Seems somewhat average for a Three Floyds brew. Saison’s aren’t necessarily my thing and so for me, this is not really worth the price. Bought it mostly for the artwork and for the fact that it’s made by Three Floyds, and I have never passed up trying one of their beers.

22 oZ poured into a tulip glass.
March 2012 release
My first Saison

A- Extremely hazy light orange, A 1.5 finger white head with nice lacing.

S- Fruity, Probably from the yeast strain and 3F hops. Somewhat sugary. Lots of wheat and grain, similar to a white ale.

T- Funky, in a good way, unlike anything I have ever had. Lots of spices like cinnamon and nutmeg, reminds me in a way of a christmas beer but I like this better. Not a lot of hop flavors which I always expect from 3F but this is not a bitter style and doesn't call for much hops. Some fruity esters from the yeast. This is very reminiscent to a wheat beer, in look, feel and taste but with a Belgian twist. Good stuff. Spicy

M- Smooth but the gobs of cinnamon give me a tingling feeling. This beer has no alcohol taste but is somewhat warming and that feel is only enhanced by its spicy nature. Creamy feel that leaves behind a festive aftertaste, makes me wish more beers were bottle conditioned.

O- This beer is a good as it is strange, and its very strange. One of the most unique beers I have had and definitely worth getting. Will be back next year for this odd gem.

I had this on tap at Quencher's Saloon in Chicago. 11oz serving into a snifter glass for $8, so not cheap.

The beer poured a cloudy apricot/orange color with a 1½-finger creamy white head that had outstanding retention - nice lacing too.

Tropical fruit nose with plenty of spices and a light hard candy sugar aroma.

This is a spicy saison. Black pepper, clove, and coriander blend together with an orange dominated fruity taste. Hard rock candy sugar provides some additional sweetness, but it never really becomes a sweet beer. A touch of Belgian yeast funkiness is also present. Not much hop bitterness as indicated by the low 25 IBU score.

Medium bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and with carbonation on the low side. They also do a good job of hiding the 7.4% alcohol.

This is another interesting and well made offering from Three Floyds.

Hazy straw yellow color with stark white head.

There's not much to the smell, but it's still pleasant. Chamomile, light grass, and clove.

Solid taste with clove, chamomile, and light banana.

Mouthfeel is crisp and light. It's very clean.

It's a good saison and I was pleased that 3F didn't try and incorporate hops into this, keeping it true to style.

Bought a 1 PINT 6 FL OZ - 22 FL OZ - 650 ML bottle of this @ Roof Brothers in Paducah, KY for $12.99. Poured from the Mainly Blue/Purple (but all tie-died) label w/ a Rabbit attaching a smoking Joker into a 0,47l New Belgium Oversized Snifter Glass. Has no freshness date on the bottle but from 2011 says the beer manager.

Aroma- Has awesome citrus and Belgian yeast aroma. Sweet and has light spices in the background.

Appearance- Pours a 1 finger, bubbly head that dies fairly quickly. Has a deep yellow/orange body with TONS of yeast at the bottom of the glass. Tons of suds are left.

Flavor- Light spices, fruit and almost no hops from FF!?!? No way! Not even the light bitterness level. Thanks guys!

Mouthfeel- Light-Medium Bodied, Medium Carbonation, Prickles at the finish, and very nice spices used.

Overall Impression- Wow! Close to 5 out of 5 from FFF. I'm glad that stuck "true to style" on this one. Will be patiently waiting the release of this in 2012.
