My second ever saisson is a much better experience. Nice white head on top of the amber/orange haze, the spice comes out stronger but not overpowering on smell and first taste. They tell me that first powerful flavor is corriander, but after a few sips, a very pleasant banana emerges. Not watery at all, this is an ale I can enjoy.

Pours a hazy golden color with an expansive frothy light tan head. The first thing I get on the nose are clove and subtle coriander aromas, and there’s some banana and bubblegum notes as well.

The coriander is really forward on the taste, which is a delightful development for me - it adds richness and character to the beer, and blends really well with the clove and banana flavors.

My concern with this beer was that Three Floyds would overemphasize the Brett, but that concern was unfounded because the mouthfeel was where a saison should be - even a saison at 7.4% ABV (can you say Imperial Saison?).

Poured into a tall clear pint glass. Lovely golden orange opaque color with a bold haze, somewhat bubbly. Thin head that dissipates quickly, little to no retention or lacing.

Aroma has many pleasant Belgian-inspired notes. Coriander, cloves, orange, banana, and yeast are the main notes that I smell. Other notes of biscuit, pear, apple, bubblegum and white pepper. Really "farmhouse."

Lots of different spices and peppers on the palette that surprises and contrasts from the aroma. Spicy and peppery on the tongue and in the aftertaste, but it does transition to milder notes of cumin, ginger, malts of grain and wheat, and candied sugar for an even balance. Alcohol is unnoticeable. Altogether spicy and malty, medium-bodied.

12oz bottled 3/25/19 (one month ago) poured into a tulip pint glass at fridge temp, no ABV listed on bottle. The beer pours hazy in a peach color with a small amount of small particulate. The head is off white in color and recedes to a thin cap. The aroma offers barnyard must, clove and bubblegum. The taste is semisweet pale malt accented with strong spice in the way of black pepper and clove. The finish is clean, dry and mildly bitter. The spice and high carbonation are used to temper the malt, negating the need for bittering. The mouthfeel is thin to medium bodied with above average carbonation. Overall, very good. Not abundantly complex in flavor or aroma, but well made and enjoyable.

Bottled on 3/25/19. 12oz bottle poured into a tulip. Pours a glowing golden with some haze to it; white head that fades leaving nice retention and sticky lacing. The aromas have some sweet malts along with some yeasts going on. Hints of pear along with some mild hints of banana. The flavors basically follow the nose for the most part. I'm picking up alot of black pepper in the flavor department. Spices are there. More hints of pear and banana. Hints of green apple in the mix. Some bubblegum. Malts and yeasts do their thing. Finishes dry for the most part. Alcohol basically goes unnoticed, although there's a subtle warmth in the finish. Mouthfeel is nice. It's medium-bodied with active carbonation. It's sharp, crisp, slightly fluffy, smooth and easy to drink.

This is a pretty solid brew. It's more or less what you would expect from the style. They try to stay true to the style and don't hop it up or try to disguise it as an IPA. It's ultimately well crafted, enjoyable and fun to drink. I like it.

Look: Pours a beautiful opaque, deep but bright orange color with a moderate head.
Aroma: Attenuated aroma. Some sweet biscuit and dried fruit from the yeast. A slight funk.
Flavor: A little yeast upfront. There is a strong metallic flavor that is predominant. It's a metallic, white pepper flavor. It tastes like when you get a cavity filled at the dentist and the taste you get between the metallic drill, filling glue, and burnt flesh. Almost like burnt flesh and plastic plus metal. It's not a very pleasant flavor, but it nonetheless quite unique. Not really sure what to do with that.
Finish: Medium bodied and moderately carbonated.

Overall: I'm sorry it's terrible. It's metallic, it's burnt plastic and flesh. Not really what I'm looking for in a beer but damn you at least have to give it credit in uniqueness. I had to pour it out folks.

Even a slow, careful pout fills the glass with foam, bright white and fairly dense, as it slowly dissipates leaves a solid ring around the glass like a bathtub stain. Clear golden liquid, on the dark side, hyperactive large bubbles appear to swirl around as much as up. The nose has some table cracker and pepper burst at first, grassy but also develops a sweeter side with apricot, banana, yellow apple fruit, pink bubblegum and a touch of rose petals, accents of lemon custard come and go, genially insistent overall. Full-bodied and on the creamier side, the carbonation massages more than tickles. Spicy with the black pepper eclipsed by ginger, coriander to cumin spices. Balanced out well by florality, bubblegum and croissant elements. The lemon to orange citrus is soft and sweet. Apple, pear, apricot fruit can at times add a tart twist. Does dry out some and get more herbaceous or earthy at the end but nowhere near any super-traditional Belgian saison. Very likable and approachable and nothing about it suggests exaggeration.
