Inspired by our guests and their journeys, this beer was brewed with the resourcefulness and inventiveness of the Nordic tradition, as well as the creative spirit of its three architects.

750 ml bottle shared with the group. Pours a hazy dark golden color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor have nice citrus that leans toward lemons, herbal character, hay, some funk, I get a light acidic character, pale malts, has a little more sweetness and fruit juice than many saisons, solid.
