Bottle. This did not work very well as a saison.It tastes like a rooibos tea. Nothing wrong with rooibos, but it does not have anything to do with beer.

330ml bottle from Archive. Good saison with a big of a alcohol burn in the throat. Hazy pale amber with a soft white head. Another great African beer.

330 ml bottle @ Cardinal. Unclear yellow body with a huge, foamy white head that stays all night (probably). Not too strong aroma of spices, tea, flowers and soap. Quite unusually in the nose. Flavor is relatively sweet, light pale malt, spices, tea and some kind of unusually bitterness that made me think of tea (try to put the tea bag directly in the mouth when finished a cup of tea). Medium body and a rather long lasting slightly weird aftertaste ending up a bit acidic. Interesting as some kind of Saison, but unfortunately it did not work for me.

Bottle. Interesting beer! The roiboos really works in this saison. It’s sweet like honey, flowery, herbal and funky enough. Good stuff!

thebeertourist (5187) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 18, 2013
Bottle at Arakataka, Oslo. Hazy golden with a huge head. Fruity nose, hints of banana and peach. Surprisingly dry in the mouth, fruity. Original

Bottle at Bishops arms Bellman. Pours hazy golden with a big white head. Nice tea aroma. Floral taste, light tartness, orange peel. A bit too carbonated.

NordicV (1943) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - JUN 29, 2013
Gulorange dimmig öl med ett fast vitt skum. Doft av jäst, syrlig citrus och viss örtighet. Även i smaken finns detta. Den lätt bittra örtigheten (antagligen från teet) märks tydligare än i doften. Torr munkänsla.

mzaar (2796) - Varberg, SWEDEN - JUN 22, 2013
Flaska. Ett helt fantastiskt vitt skum ovan en lätt dimmig gyllenfärgad öl. Doftar surt av citron, och örter och gräs fyller sen på. Citron, päron, örter, gräs och marsipan i smaken. Lätt torr munkänsla, lite som champagne eller cider. Vilken positiv överraskning!
