On tap at mrs Parma’s , pours cloudy with a white head receding, the aroma is awesome, summer fruits meet spice and freshly swan pine. On the tongue, it’s a bit cold as served and the cellar an here seems to have all of the beers carbonated the same way, it’s bright, medium carb, some sweet malt but mostly hoppy goodness and subtle spice. Finish is dry out satisfyingly, just like a saison should.

Straw coloured body, slightly hazy and with a lasting head. Grapefruit and light spice on the aroma. Fruit and spice in the taste, medium body, very refreshing and without noticeable alcohol.

HenryXXX (201) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 28, 2012
Pours a hazy straw color. The nose has honey dew, cantelope, apple skin, grapes, and dusted with lite hops. The nose scream summer. The pallet is super lite and crisp, with a little yeast followed by an astringent grape, honey dew, cantelope and finishes with a slight hoppy bitterness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bhensonb (10340) - 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.

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.

Sigmund (4809) - Tau, NORWAY - APR 30, 2013
330 ml bottle, will soon be available at Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 7.5%. Hazy golden colour, huge white head. Lovely fruity and mildly peppery aroma of saison yeast and hops. The flavour is medium sweet, distinctly spicy / peppery and hoppy with some fruity notes. High drinkability, very enjoyable.

floydian1 (825) - FNQ, Australia, - JUN 7, 2013
330ml bottle at home. Appears hazy straw yellow in the glass with a large pillowy dense white head. Aroma has earthy yeasts, straw, peppers, tangerines and apricots. Taste is quite sweet and fruity at first before a soft spiciness and dry hop bitterness takes over. Medium bodied with a slick texture and high drinkability. It is sweeter and fruitier than a Saison Dupont.

BOLTZ7555 (2701) - 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.

mkel07 (2520) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JAN 1, 2012
330ml bottle. There’s a great big fluffy white cloud of foam that is well packed and consistent. The body is a murky haze and the beer is a sunshine yellow colour. The aroma is mostly citrus hops with some fresh flower scents also coming through, a fair bit of zestiness in the nose. There is also a big hop punch in the flavour and you get a slight alcohol warmth in the back of your throat. Refreshing and easy to drink, maybe too easy given the alcohol content. Perfect beer for a warm summers day. It is good to see Australian brewers collaborating with others world class brewers.
