Tasted at the Beer festival in Nærbø. A remarkably beer, that I’ll never forget. The marriage between a Saison and (IPA). The hoppyness in this saison is so great! I’s so sad that we don’t get this ale in our liquor stores in Norway.

KornDogg (529) - Lancaster, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 18, 2014
Bottle. Yeast, grape and hop aroma. Hazy golden body with tall & frothy lasting head. Flavor begins very crisp and dry with notes of spice,yeast and hops. Slight fruit finish followed by a hoppy bitter aftertaste. Very unique and better than what I imagined it would be.

What a genius idea this is... LOADS of frothy head and body from the Belgian yeasts. Supported by citrusy, hoppy, grassy, IPA bitterness. Smells amazing. Tastes even better.

On tap at Biero. Exceptional, complex and very well balanced. Aromas of grass, caramel, flowers, and grapefruit. Taste is sweet, sour, and bitter; with very long length. Palate is creamy, and full bodied. Yellow, with a frothy head.

Azazello (18) - POLAND - JAN 8, 2014
Looks divine - intensive golden mead color, rocky white head. Little bit hazy. Hits nose with citrus and exotic fruits, and than appears notes of belgium yeast. Aroma stays to the very end. Pure pleasure. Taste is comlex - bitter and sweet. Lightly sour even. Very long finish. Medium body, oily feel, creamy. Average carbonation.

Bottle. This is seriously good! two great styles mashed into one so seamlessly! I’ve tried both the nogne version and the bridge rd version, I’d say nogne by a head, but run the race again tomorrow and the result might be different.

I like, a lot. Pours a nice light copper color with a thin head with little lacing. It’s really yeast on the nose but there is a definite crisp hop presence there. The best part about this beer is either the initial flavor or finish, the hops are dominant but you still feel like you’re drinking a saison because of the yeastiness and mouthfeel. I want a fresh keg of this come summertime but considering this brew traveled several thousand miles to get to me I think it’ll hold for a few months. How can I be the 10th rating of this beer

BottleHound (153) - Sandnes, NORWAY - APR 16, 2012
UPDATED: JUN 30, 2012 500ml bottle. Extremely well brewed Saison. Aromas of caramel and grapefruit. Taste is slightly sweet with banana and mandarin, with some citrus and delicately balanced bitterness. Long bitter aftertaste.

Bif (1420) - 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.

Kavu (2192) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 7, 2013
0,5l bottle from Alko. Pours cloudy golden with a medium head. Aroma is malts, fruits and plenty of hops. Flavor is malts, some fruits and a huge amount of hops. Great!
