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.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.
