Notes/Commercial Description:
This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

Now this is a saison! This refreshing Belgian-style ale is the combined effort of Three Floyds and De Molen’s fantastic brewer Menno (the real Dutch Hercules). This spicy and bracing ale was brewed in Munster, but look out for the one we brew in Holland at DeMolen. Cheers and drost!

Had on tap the source. Served in a stemmed tulip.

A: Pours a semi clear amber color with a thick white head forming on the pour. It's about one finger in height and it recedes slowly leaving behind sticky sheets of lace.

S: The citris hop profile on the nose really jumps out at you with some orange and lemon zest as well. Sweet Belgian yeast cuts through on the back end with some refined malts.

T: Spicy belgian yeast, with a little bit of pepper and clove, is up front. Nice grassy hops and citrus zest with a semi-bitter grapefruit pith on the finish. Sweet malt body. Well hidden booze for 8.5%

M: Medium bodied with a little heft to it. Great prickly carbonation with a drying finish.

O: A well crafted saison with a little body to it. Obviously I'd like it a little lighter to make it a little more easy drinking, but the flavor profile gets you past that. Definitely recommed for any saison fan.

On-tap at FFF. 8 oz. served in a tulip on August 18th, 2012.

A - Very cloudy, medium-golden coloring, with a white fluffy head and fantastic lacing.

S - Buttered rye bread, allspice, cinnamon, black pepper, fresh grass, and herbs.

T - Pretty big for a saison. Mid-palate has a great citrus bitterness blended with a sweet bread and rich caramel. Generally sweet but delectable.

M - Medium body, moderate carbonation, semi-dry finish. Well-hidden 8%.

D - Favorite at the brewpub on this day. More robust than refreshing but quite drinkable and dangerous.

On-tap at 3 Floyds. Served in a tulip.

A - Big white foam settles to a thin cap, thick collar, and splotchy lacework. Hazy dark orange body.

S - Surprisingly sweet and malty for the style, with some bready Belgian yeast, and a touch of spice to it.

T - The taste is again quite sweet, with hefty doses of marmalade and stone fruit. Spicy yeast, some flowery hopping, and a lightly bitter finish. Not much alcohol considering this is over 8%.

M - Lightly grainy texture, medium body, with active carbonation. Well-hidden alcohol and a clean, refreshing finish.

D - While this is too sweet for my tastes it's a well-made Saison. The alcohol is extremely deceptive, so be careful if you're driving home from 3 Floyds.
