3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance: Golden, cloudy. With a very foamy, lasting white head.
Nose: Light hops and lots of citrus (orange and lemon). Appealing.
Taste & palate: Off-dry, appetising freshness, citrusy fruitiness and just a mild bitterness in the aftertaste, which is long and lingering. Almost creamy, with rich, smooth carbonation.
Although a Winter Saison beer, after having been cooled down, this beer feels more like a witbier competitor for warm summer days (or nights).

Um, wow, this is amazing. Absurdly expensive even when bought as a single bottle at OSL, the balance of creamy goodness, zesty orange, spices, and a relatively low and nearly perfect level of bitterness make this brew one to remember-- and one to purchase again when next in Norway!

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from OSL, Gardermoen. Pours hazy yellow to light orange. Some white head which doesn’t stay for very long. Esters, citrus, sour orange and some clove nose. Quite sour. Hint of sweetness. Medium to light body. Soft to medium carbonation. Banana, clove, orange flavour. Some malt and herbs. Closer to a fruit beer than a saison in my opinion. A bit too sour.
