On tap at Cafe Baran. Lovely warming saffron flavor. A novelty, but a novelty that Works! But I think one glass is enough.

Fra fat på Baran Cafe sammen med BF: lett uklar lys kobber med flott, varig skum. I tillegg til standard pale ale-inntrykk er safranen godt til stede (sammen med litt honningsødme), og dette gjør den til en pale ale litt utenom det vanlige. Den myke karboneringen bidrar til en interessant og god drikke.

On tap at Baran Cafe, pours a hazy copper golden with a small white head. Nose brings out the saffron above anything else - not much else to notice. Flavour is nothing but saffron. Pretty good if you like the spice I guess but I don’t think it works in beer. Not for me.

Tap, Baran Cafe, Bergen, 27/10/14. Beautiful juicy banana, pineapple, unmalted barley and lime squash aroma. Witbier apricot capped with rocky white. Fresh clean banana, white pepper, perfumed coriander and lemon mousse suggestions. Fine brew.

On tap @ Baran. This is a cloudy dark orange-honey colored one with a nice heavy lacing and lasting off+white top. It smells quite alright; light fruity with grapefruit, pommelo zest, citrus, and some oranges. Not bad at all, but I’m having a hard time identifying the saffron - probably due to the beer being close to 0 degrees. It’s quite lively on the carbonation with quite a thin and almost watery mouthfeel. Dry flavors, and believe it or not, you can actually get strong tones of the saffron. More pomelo in the taste, grapes, grape stones, it’s somewhat dry also with a low sweetness factor. It also has a clear strange almost smoky touch this, but it doesn’t come forward before in the aftertaste. Would not go as far as to call it lightdrinkable, but I like the exclusive saffron touch. 18.01.2013

On tap at Baran, Bergen. Pours hazy golden, small off-white head. Stromg saffron aroma, including some honey notes. Taste is light sweet malty, honey and spices, the saffron really stands out, not a mild spicy ale. Smooth mouthfeel. Rather short lived taste, leaves the mouth clear and dry.

On tap at Baran, Bergen. The colour is hazy orange straw yellow and has a big off-white creamy head. A spicy aroma filled with spicy hops and some Belgian yeast, fruit and citrus. Lots of the same going on in the mouth but with more hay, asparagus, chlorine, and has a bit dry ending. Slick mouth feel, and a light bitterness. Interresting, fresh and decent beer.

On tap @ Baran. Pours a hazy light orange body with a large white head. Nose is saffron, grains and clove, hints of honey and aspargus. Taste is saffron, pale malts, grains, hints of astringent herbs and spices. Medium body and carbonation. Pretty nice, though maybe a bit hard on the spices. Still very original; never had saffron in a beer before. :-)
