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!

Smooth grapefruit juice, hoppy yet not bitter, a great balance of spice and malt makes it a very tasty beverage indeed, also some melon and candy. Grapefruit aroma. Cloudy grapefruit appearance with some retained head. Thanks for the extra bottles, John

I assume that "zes" means a word in Dutch, maybe "hello" or something like that. There's words written on the side of the bottle but good god am I in a drinking mood, reading is for suckers. I also assume that this beer isn't going to be all that great, considering FFF's track record with Belgian styles, but I'm still interested because the label is badass and this wasn't priced all that egregiously.

Pours thick and dark with a small head. Smells... aggressively, nicely American but still with enough of a spicy kick to make its saisonyness apparent. Sweet hops, dry yeast--a very nice Floyditization of the style.

Tastes not quite as good as it smells, unfortunately. The dry and the sweet never quite come together. There's oranges and grapefruit and, like, super dry yeast that's almost like the aftertaste of a good champagne (like, Korbel or something).

Neat beer, and a solid try at something different. It doesn't quite leave the park but it's a clean base hit.
