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.

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.

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.

Bottle sample at a tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Thanks kerenmk. Clear golden with a white head. Fruity aroma, spicy, zesty, yeasty. Flavor has a bit of sweetness, yeast, spiciness, fruits and a bit of alcohol. Medium-bodied, lively carbonation.

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

Even just uncorked, the fullness of this fantastic saison makes itself apparent. Rich aromas, rich sweetnes, rich and floral hops. A fantastic brew!

Saison interessante con un gusto dominato da note floreali, molto speziata e con una nota rustica che la rende complessa e allo stesso tempo estremamente beverina. Buona!

Unclear golden, not much head. Wonderful aroma of noble hops. Some yeast and spices. Similarly superb European hop taste. Perfectly balanced, with good drinkability and complexity.
