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.

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.

Foffern (1150) - Bodø, NORWAY - MAR 18, 2014
Bottle at home. Pours a cloudy light orange colour with a big, creamy, light beige head. Spicy aroma with citrus, hay, pepper, Belgian yeast and grass. The flavour is still spicy with a fresh touch of hay and citrus. Has a silky and slick mouth feel, and a light to medium bitterness. A solid, fresh and tasteful saison.

Huge head, hazy golden body, tiny tiny lacings. Aroma; mild sweet fruity malts, hints of apple and banana. Taste; roasted fruity caramel malts, growing small hops, hints of ginger and clove and coriander, alcoholic yeast hints. Well bodied, sweet and bitter in interesting balance. Finishes slightly dry with some bitterness, fruits, herbs.
