This beer is our version of a strong palish Belgian Saison. We have chosen to give this beer a pale and light profile and let the yeast display its full spicy flavors. We have also added some coriander for more complexity. This will develop some tartness given the time.

mgajdaczewa (552) - Katowice, POLAND - OCT 5, 2014
W aromacie bez, lawenda, kolendra, ogólnie mocno ziołowy z lekkim winogronem, na dłuższą metę męczący. W smaku nadzwyczaj gorzkie, lecz w ziołowy, grutowy sposób, lekka owocowość, głównie brzoskwinia, alkohol wyczuwalny, nieco przeszkadza. Są lepsze.

Leighton (11300) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 27, 2014
Bottle at home in London with Lyoli - sourced from Norway by Lyoli herself. Pours clear, yellow-gold with a creamy white head. The nose has lots of doughy white bread, strong Belgian yeast, candi sugar, light florals. Medium sweet flavor with white sugar, more doughy white bread, hay. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Sweet finish, lightly syrupy, with notes of caramel, candi sugar, yeast, wheat, bread. Very one-dimensional.

kerenmk (2421) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - AUG 23, 2014
Bottle shared at a tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Thanks gunnar for the trade. Weird floaties in a blond, hazy beer with white head. Sweet floral aroma, some white summer fruit. Tarty, a little plastic, some citrus taste but definitely not hoppy. Smooth, medium body, mild carbonation, long, bitter, tarty finish. Tasty and refreshing.

0.5 flasker som nytes hjemme. Flott hvit skum som ettet vert legger seg som en tynn hinne. Masse aroma, gjær frukt, krydder koriander. Smak av gjær malt koriander frisk og fin. Perfekt i solveggen
