yngwie (14146) - Kristiansand, - MAY 20, 2013
On tap at Patricks. It’s an unclear, golden beer topped by a small, dense, off-white head. Typical French saison yeast aroma, fruity and lightly spiced, grape fruit and orange peel. Alcohol notes, fruityness from the yeast, bitterness from the hops, and some spiced notes in the flavor. Full body, soft and pleasant carbonation, quite dry. Pleasant bitterness in the finish. Nice indeed! 130520

Good enough Pale Ale, but nothing over the top... Quite bitter, more than the average PA, and the supposed fruity notes are well hidden, to say the least...

IPAgutten79 (603) - Skui, NORWAY - OCT 17, 2014
Lys gylden med skyhøy hvitt skum. Aroma av sitrus, gress, malt og gjær. Smaken er av belgisk gjær, noe banan, sitrus, blomster og malt. Smaken er mildt bitter, tørr og nesten litt sur mot slutten. Tynn/medium konsistens.

Great for the style. Tasty and drinkable. 500 ml. was a perfect amount for a supper. Well crated despite a few weeks past due.
