Poured from a 22oz bottle into a tulip glass

A: Pours a hazy straw color with a vibrant, foamy white head of 2.5 fingers and spotty lacing.

S: Belgian yeast opens into the familiar notes of clove and light banana. This expands into a variety of spices like peppercorn and chamomile. A small amount of fusel alcohol gives the aroma a little bite.

T: Still a strong focus on yeast. Banana is more prominent along with some lemon and citrus zest. Light pepper notes segue into a range of floral and herbal flavors. There is a small bit of pine and a good dose of alcohol which form a lingering aftertaste. A little bit of malt provides some sweet caramel and toffee in the background. As the beer warms, flavors of wheat and honey develop.

M: Relatively thin almost like a tripel with warming alcohol and some effervescent carbonation.

O: Between the yeast and thin alcohol, it reminds me of a tripel but it is still clearly a saison. Surprisingly drinkable for such a spiced beer.

Appearance: It has a nice merky golden/orange color to it. It has a nice thick white head that dies down very slowly and leaves nice lacing.

Smell: The aromas definitly give out hints of Beglian yeast, with alot of peppery spices, coriander, orange/lemon zest and wheat.

Taste: Like the aromas, it has orange, lemon, apple and banana along with some wheat, a nice peppery spiciness, some coriander and bready yeast.

Mouthfeel: It has a low/medium carbonation with a nice overall balance, feel and complexity.

Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied with great flavors and aromas. Very refreshing and tasty, I could drink this all night.

Bottle from Delock's in Munster, 650ml into a tulip.

Hazy bright orange, with a dense white head of several fingers. Great retention and lacing. Lots of wheat and yeast on the nose, bright fruit notes and a dash of spice. Lots more yeast and wheat, citrus zest, and a good spicy component. Good hopping as well. No real alcohol to be felt. Medium body, good texture with a medium carbonation. Quite pleasing for such a warm evening.

22oz bomber Pours a rich, hazy golden apricot color with a one finger creamy off-white head. Great consistent lacing.

Nose: Honey, tart peach, orange citrus, light peppery funk. Very well compiled and nothing but amazing scents.

Taste: Sweet apple, tropical citrus, lemon, pepper, barny funk. Sweet at first but clean, crisp finish with zippy, biting bubbles.

Overall a very delicious beer. A bit sweet for the style, but I really liked it and do not think it detracted from it. Flavorful, crisp, and biting. An absolutely delicious beer that I will be seeking out again.

Last of a box from dakkon54!

Its really cloudy, even for a saison. Tight white head. The smell is loaded with spicy yeast esters. There an odd hint of tobacco smoke as well. The taste is very spicy, like they added black pepper. Lots of banana, and a light body. Very peppery and spicy, yes it necessitates being mentioned twice.

Poured from a 22 oz bottle adorned with Three Floyds' unmistakable distinctive cover art, featuring a giant angry rabbit throttling the crap out of a scared gnome. Served in an oversized pint glass.

Pours a cloudy straw yellow, with hints of gold/green, starting with a one inch head that leaves moderate lacing around the sides.

Smell is quite herby, with oregano, chamomile, sage, celery, hints of basil -- this brew is herbed to the max! Pepper and oak notes round out this brew's complex, bold aroma.

Taste is, like everything 3F does, is laced with abundant hops, but there is a distinctive floral, peppery spice taste. In some respects, it is like a hoppy, peppery herbal tea of a beer, with notes of lemon, and allspice. Malt is also present, with a rye cracker crispness that gves this a bit of heft. Finishes with a hint of mild bitter that is not overpowering.

Mouthfeel is zesty, medium bodied, with a crisp, tangy tart balanced by a hot, peppery feel that prevents this from being a "refreshing" farmhouse ale.

This beer is all over the place; not as funky as a typical saison, not as yeasty as a wheat beer, not as pure hoppy as an IPA, but instead is a mixture of the three, and more, with its peppery notes. Certainly a decent beer, but not one of my favorite 3F beers - though that is no knock, since it would be like saying this isn't one of my favorite classic Corvettes. I definitely recommend it, if just to try it, though I would not list it as a go-to 3F beer for me.

Pours a beautiful glowing cloudy orange body with a bright white head forming thick in my new Tripel Karmeliet glass. Aroma has a big punch of citrus, and herbal spice, chalky yeast notes, and a touch of alcohol coming together. As I take my first initial sips, I get a strong assertive bitterness from the herbal chamomile, citrus peel edges, and strong long lasting spicy notes from the yeast. Bright citric notes initially followed by hints of bready sweetness all followed by a strong alcohol flavor, it was the last bottle available at Chalet Premier in North Lima, OH. Worth it to try it, sense I've been looking for this beer pretty much since they first brewed it. Mouthfeel was effervescent with sturdy carbonation medium bodied yet mellow and smooth nothing overbearing, a bit of alcohol warmth I welcomed along with a lasting spice/bitterness on the palate. Overall a truly tasty American brewed saison, which was definitely worth it. Will I revisit this one soon, probably not because I prefer the hoppy 3 Floyd's offerings.
