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)

abemorsten (2916) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - MAY 23, 2013
Small bottle at Cardinal. Hazy golden body with an inch thick frothy white head. Grassy, flowery gooseberry spicy saison yeast notes on the nose. Meaty, gooseberry hop juice in the mouth; still, more complex due to the yeast. Medium bodied. Nice spicy yeast notes opening up as it heats. Pretty good stuff. Quite soft in the mouth.

BOLTZ7555 (2823) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAR 19, 2014
Pretty unique brew with a 14 karat body sporting a tightly packed ivory cap. Nice citrus and tropical fruit notes, clean and crisp green leafy qualities, and even a slightly sourdough, earthy, cheesy addition. Refreshing and well crafted.

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.

Apparently the Bridge Rd version of Nøgne Ø India Saison. Growler. Cloudy gold with a modest white head. Aroma of grapefruit, white pepper, gooseberry, almonds. Quite light-bodied. Taste has some light dough, some stone and tropical fruit, lots of grapefruit and pepper. Touch of windex. Saison character is there but apart from the pepper it’s pretty subdued and a bit clean for me. Nice dry finish is bitter and spicy.

Draught from Blind Tiger. Classic saison pour of slightly orange gold, nice floral aroma; yeasty and clean hops bitterness were the primary flavors.

Spicy bubblegum hop nose. Smooth body - just about bang on for carbonation. Some bubblegum and phenols with a good galaxy hop finish. Some lemon sherbert there as well. Really lovely. Glad I got to try this - only wish I could get some more! Cheers volcanicbeat!

Bottle. I like how the yeast is dominant on the nose, whereas the hops play a bigger part in the mouth. A pretty nice combination of the styles, combining to make a vinous palate. Works with summer like a fine Riesling.
