3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
0.33l bottle from #15. This is a light cloudy orange looking one with a nice medium sized white really lacing head. It also sticks around for a good while. On the nose this is a but funky and definitely saison yeasty. Lots of strange small blue flowers, some strong quite sweet almost honey syrup like notes with traces of herbs, pepper, fresh cut grass and gooseberries. Actually not bad at all. It’s a bit more mellow and average of you’d like in the taste. Light oily on the mouthfeel and the carbonation is just below average. Light flourish and somewhat thin in the taste. Yeast, some sweet white candied sugar and sparking mineral water with lemon taste that had gone still. A bit weird, but not bad tasting either. 19.10.2013

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
330ml bottle, batch no. 15, from Vinmonopolet Vika. A slight haze to a golden body. Fair white head leaving lacing rings behind. Moderate smell of spiced fruits with a touch of wheat. The flavour follows suit with a mild, spiced fruity touch, semi-dry. Mild yeasty fruitiness, bittersweet, to the ending. Soft in the mouth. Alright and quite refreshing (hotel room, Oslo 25.11.2013).

Interesting with new stuff from Sweden. I have never tasted quality beer from Sweden.
It's all right. Nothing more, nothing less.

Straight saison with nothing special about it. A good beer, but many saisons are better.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Vinmonopolet in Valkendorfsgate, Bergen. Pours a clear golden body with a medium, short-lasting white head. Nose is banana, pale malts, straw, white sugar, bubble gum, rose water, saison yeast and hints of lemony brett tones in the back. Taste is white sugar, saison yeast, citric acid, straw and hints of bitter herbs in the back. Light to medium body, dry finish and a medium to high carbonation level. I must say this is a rather nice beer, refreshing and complex at the same time. Good to learn that Brekeriet can deliver good brews after my first encounter with them, which was quite horrible.
