Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 19, 2012
Bottle 33 cl. Courtesy of bluebetty. Pours a cloudy pale yellow with a lacing off-white head. Fruity, spicy, citrusy aroma - quite complex. Medium body, spicy tart fruit, very yeasty with a solid bitterness in the finish. Very different from the Norwegian version, but more of a Saison - although with a massive hop dose. 190412

yngwie (14008) - 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

bhensonb (11489) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 19, 2012
Bottle from The Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours dishwater gold with a foamy 3 finger white head. Aroma is citrus and light pitted fruit with a little earthiness. Med body more or less. Flavor is astringent and earthy with citrus and fruit. It’s passing great and has a deal of hop bitter. Just brilliant ale.

thewolf (11233) - 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.
