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.

Very nice stuff, delicate malt, delicate floral hops, delicate mango and peach esters, delicate peppery zing from the yeast or the hops or both, nice and dry, bitter enough and well carbed - just a bit soapy from the heavy handed coriander addition.

Azazello (107) - POLAND - JUN 1, 2015
Piwo w szkle prezentuje się niezwykle ładnie, ale złocista opalizująca barwa nie wieńczy się nawet najmniejszą pianą, co nieco burzy wrażenie wizualne. Ale zapach... Mmmm... Delikatna kolendra miesza się z mocno cytrusowymi akcentami, lekką przyprawowością oraz nutą ziołową. W smaku miękka słodowość wsparta jest przyjemnie gryzącymi przyprawami, owocami i drożdżowym charakterem. Piwo jest całkiem mocne (7,5%), ale doskonale zbalansowane i zwyczajnie pijalne. Gdybym wcześniej pił takie saisony, to nigdy bym nie powiedział, że "nie jestem ich fanem". To najlepszy przedstawiciel tego stylu, jaki trafił do mej paszczy.

tbonde (164) - DENMARK - MAY 20, 2015
50 cl bottle@home in Tulip glass@approx 6 degrees C. Pours hazy golden with a great, foamy white head. Good retention and some lacing.. Sublte aroma of brett, yeast, malt and fruitiness. Very well balanced taste of yeast, brett, hops and a malty sweetness. Full body with perfect carbonation and no booziness despite the quite high ABV.Aftertaste OK, but not overwhelming, keeping the sweetness with a good little bitterness kicking in. ’Got even better as it warmed up. I was pleasantly surprised by this beer which, though brewed in Norway, is a great Belgian beer of the best tradition and without any vices. Really good stuff!.

sebletitje (7498) - Enghien, BELGIUM - MAR 11, 2015
Bouteille 50cl, batch#798, BB 20/04/2016. Dorée, col fin blanc. Arôme au bouquet fruité et houblonné avec un rétro de levure dont qcq esters belges. Retrouve de bons houblons nobles sur un léger épicé, malt pils. Palais est malté, levure belge avec ici encore des notes esters rappelant la banane et abricot. Houblonné noble qui ajoute une faible touche fruitée. ok et correcte dans une lignée très belge.

asimeow (205) - Sandsli, NORWAY - DEC 21, 2014
0,5l bottle. Cloudy golden, white scattery head. Smells and tastestoo much of wheat malts, though. Not a big fan of wheat in beer, so this will never be a winner for me.
