3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Heavy malt of aroma of straw, dried grass for the hops, light barnyard for the yeast, with unripe apple, coriander and pepper in the background. Head is large fizzy/foamy, white with slippery lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is medium yellow. Flavor starts moderately acidic and lightly bitter, then finishes lightly acidic and bitter. Palate is hidden pretty well by the overly fizzy carbonation, and finishes very dry. Very crisp and tasty Saison. Make me burp.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle (75cl) from Vinmonopolet (Aker Brygge), Oslo. Lovely-looking bright pale golden hazy colour with a huge white fizzy head that reduces fairly fast to an uneven bubbly layer and spot-patterned lacing. Nose is champagne-like with a prickly sensation. Aroma of white bread, citrus juice, lemon zest, yeast, pepper. Medium/light body, lively carbonation. Dry, citrus-fruity taste with a nice balance between sweetness and acidity/tartness. Aftertaste is very dry and slightly metallic with lemon zest and bread - still pleasant though.

3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cloudy yellow colored with weak non lasting white head. Aroma starts like cooked eggs but this clears pretty fast to a barnyard, acidy yeast and sweet corn aroma. Taste is medium to light sweet wit with some spices, hay, some tart flavor and grassy bitter finish. Dry, heavier side of light bodied with a hefty carbonation.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Strågul, fint skum, ganske klar. Svakt metallisk aroma, med belgisk gjærpreg, litt banan, tutti frutti og noe fenolsk. Smaken er frisk, litt syrlig og sitruspreget. Balansert bitterhet. Høyt kullsyrenivå bidrar til friskhet. Meget god saison.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap@akkurat. Yellow golden hazy. Belgy yeasty, some belgy blond vibes to it. Estery, that is. Hay malty, pale malty. Nice bodied, somewhat bitter, dry finish. Citrus, some ginger. Ok. Bit too spicy for my liking, but nice flavoursome.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap@ Akkurat. Cloudy amber, thick white head. Yeasty, citrusy, cellar aroma. Flavor has citrus, Belgian hops, floral notes. So fruity, hoppy, perfect saison. Well not really, on the sweeter side as it turns out later, as it warms a little. Still great.

Bottle. (thanks Eddan)
A bit hazy golden with a large white head. Aroma of grass, soap and hints of saffron. Similar taste, also malt and light yeast. Sweet and with a fairly dry finish. The body was light.

@ Eddan 15-1-10: lätt liten tvålig doft. Kanske med aningen safran. Smaken är mycket blek tyvärr, med en besk eftersmak.
