Bottle at Schouskjelleren. Splendid saison aroma. Fruity, yet dry. The dryness is perhaps a bit overwhelming, I’d like slightly more fruit and funk. But it’s a fine beer.

reebtogi (4742) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - APR 12, 2013
500ml bottle pours a hazy golden color with a finger and a half of white head that settles to reveal some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is citrus and yeast. Taste is a lemony tartness with some citrus bitterness and a light fruity and malty sweetness. Medium bodied with some good carbonation lending to a nice mouth feel. A very well done saison that would make any beer connoisseur proud.

Bottle (shared by Arve_Christian - thanks!) Pours golden with a white head. Hoppy and yeasty aroma with citrus, fruits and hints of spices. Just lightly sweet with a solid bitterness in the finish. Nice one! (2013-03-25)

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.

Bottle@home. One finger foam. Haze brown. Plenty of strange hoppy notes. Clove and earthlike notes too. Intense bitterness. Great bitter saison.

Beer4000 (5044) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 18, 2013
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.

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.
