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!

Bottlle received recently in trade as an extra...thanks for hitting a want. Enjoyed from a fff teku. Sadly it seems that this is a beer better served fresh. It really has an old faded hop breathing throughout. visually deep transparent orange with a fizzy head. Not very saison like at all. smell is more barley wine. toffee caramel and faded hop. Perfect preview fir the taste. Thankfully i like barleywines so this is not wasted on me. Would love to try it fresh. Lots of gagged candied hops. Syrupy even.

Notes from a review on 11/30/12

This is the biggest 'saison' in every way. It pours a completely opaque hazy gold/orange with a great white head made up of mostly small, tight bubbles. The aroma is very yeast/cereal like with HUGE citrus hops - ripe grapefruit and mango, orange juice. The tastes follows the nose - very bready but also very bitter from a strong hop presence. Just crazy huge citrus hops.

This is a fantastic beer - don't know if I would call it a saison, but more of a DIPA with saison ingredients.
