3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy light brown-orange body with floating sediments and a big foamy white head. Aroma is dense tones of blue cheese, ripe apricot, syrup, grains and heather honey. Complex and original. Taste is cereals and grains, heather honey, floral grass notes, hints of camomile and herbs. Not as impressive as in the aroma, but starts out pretty nicely. After some time, however, it sort of rolls over and becomes very boring. Fizzy carbonation (which I find suitable as it provides a bit of freshness), medium body. Pretty nice, but could have been a lot better.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Very uncommon to be a saison. Though it’s made with many spices and different hops, it’s not spicy like a saison is meant to be. Looks and taste more like a blond ale. But it’s ok

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
750ml bottle bought at Vinmonopolet Hamar and shared with friends. Gives a good shot followed by smoke when opened. Creamy, airy, white head. Dotted spots to the glass. Cloudy golden body. Sweet fruity nose, hints of lemon, lightly spiced. Sweet orange taste joined by clove and wheat-like sweetness. Dry bittersweet end. Soft in the mouth. Food friendly and with some interests (Ottestad, 15.02.2013).

Sample courtesy of Annie at Alla Spina. Not really that sour, grapey, light nail polish, fruity booze, very winey. Weak bodied. Nothing special here.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Vinmonopolet Stor enjoyed at home
Orange hazy, big white head. Smells of light malts, yeast esters, phenols and bakers yeast - with som faint spices in t he back. Moderate sweet, quity spice infuses, yeast flavors as well and some malts. Light bitter. This is a strange one; i don’t find it very saison’ish; not light either. It’s kind of a thick cerial soup with yeast and spices. Not the best from this brewery
