COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

metalspice (128) - Jevnaker, NORWAY - NOV 21, 2014
Lyst og grumsete med lavt, hvitt skum. Herlig duft med nyslått gress og banan. Frisk smak med frukt og lett krydret. Over gjennomsnittlig karbonisert. Drukket til sesongens første lutefisk, passet perfekt, mye bedre enn mørke juleøl som man har prøvd tidligere.

mgajdaczewa (603) - 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.
