3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy light yellow color with very little white head. Nice sour aroma of grass and herbs as well ass a vanilla and toffeee like sweetness. The taste is fresh and grassy I think. It has a citrussy sourness to it and a light sweetness with sourness dominating though. Low bitterness. Over all it has a unique taste too it in the balance between it all. I like it! A bit too low carbonation to my taste.

UPDATED: DEC 14, 2015 Bottle at lumskebugten. Aroma and taste is rather complex; Fresh but sweet, citrus and over-riped fruits. Coriander. Body is light to medium and texture is juicy. Very very high carbonation.

Tasty and very fruity saison with an interesting spiciness. Not as sour as the original from Belgium, but more passive and more like a wheat beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A light yellow, a head is blond and almost medium. Aroma has flowery and aromatic. Sweet fruits, flowers, black pepper and some lemon. Taste has strong but mild spicyness, camomilla and lemon. Some sharp peppers in the end. There are also much more flavours then I described here but it’s difficult to say exactly what. Medium bodied. Maybe even too complex beer. Personal. Spicy.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Deep opalescent bright golden (5-6 EBC) with a fluffy fine poring head and very good lacings. Aromas are right away pretty complex and hits you with plenty of different impressions such as wheat, coriander, bergamot, safran, black and white pepper, floral, grassy and a touch of dried citrus peel. Soft and mild carbonation offering a smooth texture and a medium body. Spices like pepper and ginger and coriander are all over the place with a light malty touch to it all offering some light acidity and a faint bitterness. Lasting spicy finish. Pretty good beer and pretty harmonic but not really a saison as you would expect.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
750 ml corked and waxed bottle, from Vinmonopolet, Nettbutikken. Probably 2 y.o. when consumed. ABV is 5.8%. Golden colour, lightly hazy. White head goes rapidly from moderate to none. Aroma of saison yeast, but also less pleasant notes of over-ripe and decaying fruits, moldy wet grain, compost and solvent. Fairly refreshing flavour, medium dry, a little fruit, not very complex but nice enough to drink. Less spicy than expected. Might sample again from a fresher bottle, hopefully the aroma will be better then.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from GBBF 2015 and drunk at home. Pours hazy golden lasting beige head. Slightly funky aroma with some spice. Funny having this after so many English saisons. This is a little more cereal led. Herb. A little funkier than some saisons. Decent.
