The beer you are holding is unique. A special strain of yeast and a warm fermentation produces a beer of exceptional flavor and aroma. An extended secondary maturation and bottle conditioning ensures all these unique qualities are preserved and evolve over time. Serve at 50°F in a tulip glass.

What to expect
This tawny orange beer pours with a rocky white head. Aromas of passion fruit, tangerine, and black pepper hit the nose. Flavor is a cascade of orange, lemon verbena, ginger and pepper. And in a second it is gone, finishing with a dry and lingering bitterness that awaits another sip.

Cellaring Information
Store upright in a dark dry place at cellar temperature (ideally at 50 degree). Cellar limit is 2 years.

ABUSEDGOAT (2416) - California, USA - AUG 30, 2014
Nearly clear golden color, moderate head, good lace/retention. Aroma is yeast, grass, lightly spiced, lemon, pepper. Medium to light bodied, fairly dry. Really good for an American example.

ChainGangGuy (4448) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - AUG 28, 2014
Appearance: Pours a fairly hazy, pale golden body with a foamy, white head kept good and frothy by the stray streams of effervescence bubbling up from within.

Smell: Lightly sweetish, lightly creamyish notes of pilsner and wheat malt. Fresh, inviting blood orange and sweet lemon along with their fruity pals, grape, ’nana, and pear. Big pinch of coriander and fresh-ground black pepper pulling in a little noted earthiness.

Taste: Honeyish, cereal-sweet maltiness atop the doughy pils and soft wheat. Restrained sweetness. Snappy, sharp herbal notes cut with brightly acidic citrus juices and soon softened with spiced pear, banana and white grape. Soft yet lively finish, with final hints of herbs, fruit and piquant spices.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium-high carbonation.

Overall: Plenty of saison goodness to be had here, without the need to resort to spices or unwarranted alcohol levels. If only Philip Seymour Hoffman could have lived long enough to enjoy it. Pity.

Cool_Bond (1707) - Kung av Öl @ Facebook, SWEDEN - AUG 21, 2014
Citrus, yeast and a little malty in the aroma. The flavor is most yeast and citrus. Weak bitterness that fills the mouth a long time. But think the beer has too much carbonation unfortunately. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

Bottle. Light golden body, massive foamy white head. Aroma is sweet sugary tones, red fruits, straw, sour yeasty saison tones and hints of citrus. Taste is red berries, peach peel, mild citric tones, white sugar anf hints of alcohol, straw and pale malts. Medium body, high carbonation. Well-balanced saison with good drinkability, though a tad bit boring.
