Bottle at Crowbar, january 8th 2013. It’s way too long since I had Nøgnes version so I wont try to make out the differences. Should have had them together of course. hazy yellow body, sparkling, with a huge white thick head. Aroma is really fresh, lemon, spicy saison yeast, pears, orange. taste of oranges first and foremost, joined by peach, pepper, delicious yeast note. Bitterness comes slowly, cooperating good with the yeast, making a nice spicy aftertaste of clove, peppers and tropical fruits. A very good beer this is.

Pours slightly hazy golden with a white head. Aroma has notes of malt, pepper, citrus, grape and peach. Taste is light to medium sweet and light to medium bitter with a long dry, fruity and pepper finish. Body is medium, texture is thin to oily, carbonation is soft.

Shared bottle @ Patricks. Almost clear golden body with a small, dense off-white head. Moderate strong aroma of citric fruit, blackcurrant leaves and light spicy yeast. Flavor is sweet, mild malt, fruity hops, nice bitterness and some yeast. Fine and balanced body, refreshing in aftertaste. A nice one, with a bit less aroma and flavors than the Nøgne Ø version.

thewolf (11131) - Kolding, DENMARK - FEB 16, 2013
Bottle. Thanks bluebetty. Pours muddy pale yellow with a small, staying, frothy, white head. Aroma has citrus, floral, oranges, crisp malts, light melon. Medium carbonation, fine dry and creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is quite sweet, malty, zesty oranges, citrus, mild bitterness, somewhat vinious. A fine drink, though I would probably prefer either an IPA or a Saison.

yngwie (13200) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 16, 2013
Bottle, at Patricks. It pours a clear, golden body and a dense, off-white head of moderate size. The aroma is clearly influenced by the saison yeast, well, I assume it’s saison yeast. Lemon peel, fruitiness, some pine cones and a touch of pale malts. Full body with a nice carbonation, although high. Nice bitterness. Both initially and in the end. Really pleasant. 130214

From the bottle pours a dirty brown/yellow. Frothy, lasting head with some streaky lacing. Some malt sweetness in the aroma. I found this had very little actual flavour, especially upfront. There is some mid bitter grapefruit but it is the lasting sensation (not flavour) of roof of mouth bitterness that I mainly remember. Alright.

Bif (1392) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - SEP 7, 2012
On tap at the Brige Road Brewery. Served a nice pale golden color with a good head that fades quite slowly to ample lacing. Aroma is a mix of citrus and pine with a nice funk. Spice and an interesting fruit mix in the background. Taste is a changing mix of citrus, pine, a mild malt sweetness with a bit of spice, fruit and a nice dose of funk. There is a nice bitterness with a slightly spicy finish. Medium body, with an original robust flair that makes this beer stand out. Not a typical saison as this one has a bit of an IPA personality without being overbearing. An ineresting and very enjoyable beer. Well worth checking out.
