22oz bomber poured into a white wine glass. Pours a bright, hazy golden orange with a sudsy white head.

Smells wonderful. Orange, pepper, and a slight mustiness. Hints of alcohol as well.

Spicy, funky, hints of citrus fruit, with an alcohol heat finish. Hints of banana after warming up a bit.

Prickly carbonation with a light to medium body.Slightly watery.

After writing my review, Ive started eating pizza with it and it enhances the spice of the pepperoni and crushed red pepper. This is light, easy to drink, with a spicy kick. Enjoy!

APPEARANCE: Cloudy orange color with some hazy yellow around the edges of the glass. A good two fingers of fluffy white foam following a medium pour. Head was slow to disappear, and left plenty of nice lacing on the glass til the last drop.

AROMA: Chamomile, Coriander, Wet Lawn, & Peppercorns. I also started to get some lemon & orange as the beer warmed up a bit.

TASTE: I’m getting wheat and light malts up front. Peppery notes, chamomile, and other spices (perhaps from the rock candy) aren’t far behind. There’s a very subtle sweetness near the back-end. I let the beer warm for about 10 minutes or so, and it really started to bring out some citrus flavors (mainly lemon and orange). The finish featured some coriander and yeasty flavors. Pretty refreshing.

MOUTHFEEL: Light to medium body with a fairly light carbonation for the style.

MOREY’S BOTTOM LINE: An above average Saison. That being said, I guess that I expected a bit more from FFF. It’s more of a peppery and spicy Saison, as opposed to the tart and funky ones that I’ve been drinking as of late. Well crafted, but it’s just a little tamer than I was anticipating. It’s worth a shot…but personally, I wouldn’t seek this one out.

22oz bottle opened on 5.14.12.

A - Pours a very cloudy, pale orange with a one finger cream-colored head that fades down pretty quickly.

S - Lemon, light Belgian yeast.

T - Tangy lemons and some subtle orange. Some slight yeast pokes through at the end.

D - Medium carbonation on an average body.

o - Nice subtle Belgian yeast and citrusy lemon. Perfect for a hot night.

Picked up this bottle at the last DLD. Pours a hazy light orange with a healthy off-white head. Carbonation was really nice, a ring of bubbles lingered in the glass till the last sip. Nice medium bodied beer. Had very prominent bready, banana yeasty characters in the aroma department. The first sip reinforced the smells lots of bread and banana. Very light hints of peppery spice on the tongue. Normally I like my Saison’s with more of that spiciness but this beer was really nice just the same. Wish I would have gotten 2 bottles instead of just the one.

A: Golden-yellow with crazy haze. Fluffy head that hangs around for a while. Little lace.

S: Like a Hefe. Bananas, pepper, clove. Is this a Hefe?

T: Pepper is there. This is a Hefe. Good but different and unexpected.

M: Smooth, tasty. Easy drinking.

O: Good beer but not a Saison at all. A Hefe!

22 oz bottle into a tulip glass.

Pours a clear copper with a couple fingers of rich bright-white head. This retains with a ½ finger cap of foam which leaves back a rich cascade of sticky lacing. The aroma smells quite flavorful, with notes of wheat, floral character, green earth, soft sticky fruit, some tartness, and a zippy feeling spicy presence in the nostrils. This is nice.

The taste has a crisp wheat base to it, with some softer fruit flavors working in (orange and banana seem to stick out), a smack of tart lemon, a light earthy bitterness, and a spicy dry finish. The mouthfeel is medium bodied, with a chewy creaminess on the tongue that spreads out into more of a sharp feel that prickles the mouth a bit. The alcohol here is very nicely hid for 7%+.

I’m glad that I finally sat down with a bottle of this, as it ending up being a rather tasty and easy sipping take on a Saison with a nice balance of malt, fruit, spice, and hops that kept this interesting to drink.

Poured 22 oz bomber into Duvel tulip.

RR pours a cloudy, golden color with about an inch of eggshell head. The head dissipates quite quickly, and leaves a good deal of stickiness on he sides of the glass. This beer is quite pungent: smells of the classic yeast odor, typical of the style. I'm not an expert in the style's nuances, but it has the banana/yeast flavor that is quite familiar. This is refreshing & enjoyable, if not as complex as their hoppier offerings. The mouthfeel is thin& highly carbonated. It leaves a bit of a prickly feeling on my tongue.

Overall: likeable. Glad that i tried this, but could go either way returning to it at the price point. Hard for me not to sample all of the 3F offerings!

Big thanks goes out to Bobby91w for sending this one my way as an extra in a very recent trade! I had honestly just added this to my Wants list! Thanks again man! Served from bottle into a Three Floyds XV Anniversary imperial pint glass. Poured a hazy yellow-orange with a one finger slightly off-white head that subsided to a half finger very slowly. Maintained excellent lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, earth, earthy hop, spices, and floral notes. The flavor was of sweet malt, earth, earthy hop, spices, floral, wheat, banana, fruit, and subtle bubble gum. It had a light feel on the palate with high carbonation. Overall this was a fairly good brew. The aroma on this one was pretty nice and inviting. It was really well balanced and was fairly good for the Saison genre. The flavor was fairly good, but it was a little more toward the earthy side of things rather than being really well balanced like the aroma. This was unfortunate, but didn’t kill the brew overall. Still really nicely done and I’m really glad I got to try this one just because the label art is SO badass…

pours cloudy murky golden orange. inch or so of creamy fluffy head. decent retention.

funky and musty, some light peppery spice.

funky yeast and light subtle spice dominate this, very straight forward and not very complex. maybe a slight hint of banana.

a bit full with a moderate carbonation that adds to the body.

easy drinking, not bad, but nothing spectacular. worth a seek though.

From 04/28/12 notes. Thanks to JM03 for sending a bottle of this my way. 22 oz bomber.

a - Pours a murky yellow color with one to two fingers of fluffy white head and moderate carbonation evident.

s - Smells of fruity malts, apples, bananas, yeast, citrus, oranges, cloves, and light spice. Super fruity, which I like a lot.

t - Tastes of citrus, Belgian style yeast, cloves, pepper, oranges, fruity malts, bananas, and bready malts. Little more spice to it, but still really nice. Think I like the nose a tiny bit better.

m - Medium body and moderate carbonation. Easy to drink and smooth.

o - Overall I thought this was a really good saison; another winner from FFF for me. The nose is super fruity which I loved, and the taste is as well, though not quite as much. Easy to drink, would certainly have it again.
