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.

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 (2799) - 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.

Boekanier (57) - NETHERLANDS - APR 25, 2014
Appearance: golden color, whote head with a moderate retention. Aroma: distinctive earthy saison aroma, fruity hoppy addition, citrusy. Taste: bittery sweet, bitter aftertaste. The bitterness is very moderate and balanced though. Palate: moderately to very dry, high attenuation typical for the saison style. Overall: a very nice beer, interesting taste and flavours, lives up to my expectancy.

UPDATED: JUN 5, 2014 Bottle. Murky orange. Aroma is tropical fruity, citrus, yeasty. Lots of citrus and tart yeast flavours. Incredibly refreshing. More of a tart IPA.

Pours pale amber with a small head. Nose shows abundant amounts of tropical fruit with passionfruit, pineapple, grapes, peaches, etc, etc, etc....... Underneath are big spicy notes and soft clean malt. Similar fruit as flavours, before transitioning to sweet light malt. After that things really dry out as the hops and spicy characters return for an aggressive finish. Carbonation seems a little full-on. Really captures both styles.

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.

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 at Papsø. Hazy golden coloured with a small white head. Fruity aroma of hops, citrus peel, basil and pine needles. Fruity flavour of hops, pine needles, citrus peel and grape fruits. Dr hoppy finish.

500 ml from Shenanigan’s Wine and Spirits. Big carbonation. Nice hoppy aroma (Citra?). Dry saison body. Lemon and some tart. This is a pretty interesting mix of IPA/saison. Would go well on a hot day. Very nice.
