I think this is a saison in name only , because I have never quite had a saison that fits this profile. The Three Floyds motto is "It's not normal", and this fits the motto.
Pouring a golden yellow color, the ale like a white head in the snifter glass. A mild grass aroma came from the glass though the aroma was far from potent. Lacking the "funk" of a saison, the ale certainly had a lot of other interesting elements in the taste. Hops make a big impression with notes of citrus pineapple, mild grapefruit, and a certain earthiness. It has a pretty broad spectrum of hops. The mouthfeel had a certain thickness that I associate with the style, making the taste thick enough to linger. This was important as the taste was allowed to linger and warm the back of the throat. I am not a fan of saisons, but enjoyed this one. Maybe I enjoyed it because it is so strikingly different from other saisons.
