Pours cloudy gold with long lasting foamy white head. The description is pretty accurate - strong tropical fruits on the nose, citrus, banana, coriander, bread, pepper. Body is crisp and dry. Moderately bitter, lightly sweet. Excellent saison. Much better than I expected.

Bottle from Vinmonopolet Storo enjoyed at home
Golden misty, huge white head. Smells of citrus hops, spice, yeast and malts. Taste is medium sweet, quite dominant yeast which i like alot, some spices and fruityness. Moderate bitte rfinish, some citrus hops in there. Very nice saison, good hops infused in both flavors and aroma. A world class saison i would say
