2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Thanks to OleR for a 500ml bottle of this one, batch 716. Hazy yellow coloured body under a stable, chalk white head. Fair lacing. Bread and citric hops to the nose. Semi-sweet fruity taste, lemon and orange. Drying fruity bitterness to the finish. Hidden alcohol. Refreshing, however, rather below the standard of the brewery (rating session XXXIX with Stefan and Elisabeth, Tromsø 20.09.2014).

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Flaske 500ml på Skarven. Batch 716. Lys gusjegul/appelsinfarget. Høyt hvitt skum som daler raskt og stabiliserer seg veldig lavt. Aroma av syrlig frukt. Smaken litt syrlig med hint av krydder. Blir litt monoton. Bunnfall igjen på flaska. Etiketten nevner appelsin & nellik. Begge godt skjult og fungerte vel ikke helt bra i lag.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Shared bottle @ Schouskjelleren. Unclear orange body with an OK, lacing off-white head. Aroma is fruity with oranges and a bit spicy, feels light and refreshing. Flavor is refreshing, medium sweet, pale malt, orange fruitiness, some spicy yeast and low bitterness, still there is some kind of a sharp citric/zest bitterness. Medium body and aftertaste. Nice one without trying to be extraordinary.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Oh lala says Cantona. And I agree. Vinter brew….hmm this brew was absolutely perfect after a really hot Norwegian summer day. Looks just great. Cloudy yellowish, with a fine white head that makes a nice lacing down the glass. Fresh aroma, with yeast and oranges. Medium body, with a fine balance between a moderate sweetness and an ok acidity. Good carbonation. Tasty saisonish flavor. Yeast and orange fruity are most dominant. Apart from being a brewery with a lot of lovely sour ale, they do now also have a whole range of lovely saison. Mooooreish stuff.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Opaque, medium yellow body with a small, bubbly head. Rather strong, hoppy and fruity aroma with notes of watered down orange juice. Uh, that didn’t sound very nice, but it is an inviting aroma. Moderate flavour of acidic and tart fruits. Light acidic taste that grows into a moderate acidity in the finish. Crisp and refreshing mouthfeel, light body, very dry texture. Interesting.

Sample at Haand 2014
Yellow hazy, white head. Smell of oranges, spices, herbs, yeast esters an light malts. Light sweet, quite herbal and spicy, orange juices, some hints of citric acid, quite dry mouthfeel. Moderate bitter finish. Nice one, the orange juice adds interesting things to the saison style
