3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
High fluffy head. Tempting fragrance of flowers and resin, orange and herbs. Flat mouthfeel, low carbonation, medium of everything. The label build up my expectations but the beer doesn’t fill them. A rather average ale.

"A nice spicy saison style brew...one of their tastier brews, though it still seems to be lacking focus. the kaffir lime leaf version of this brew was pretty nice."

Flaska från systembolaget. Orange vätska vitt skum. Kryddig doft med mycket apelsin. Detta anas även i smaken som känns ganska rå. ganska bitter men samtigt lite tunn.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
My Bottom Line:
Coriander and grains of paradise leap from the glass in this clean and unmemorable brew.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A rapidly diminishing veil of foam crowns the translucent amber.
-Aniseed allusions are also found underneath.
-Mouthfeel is relatively lean.
-This is quite drinkable despite the intensity of the spiciness.
-Blind, you don’t really know if you’re holding a bag of wet spices, a cup of herbal tea, an amped Witbier, etc.
-Hops and malt are only there to support the spices.
-It remains quite useful for many food pairings.

Yellow-orange pour with a white head. The aroma has some big spice notes with some orange citrus. The flavor is also very spicy with some bitter orange and grass notes from the hops. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap, labeled "Spice and Desist". I’m assuming some legal action took place, and that’s the new name for this brew. Mostly hazy orange color. Thin off-white head. Head fades to minimal. Doesn’t leave much lace. Bitter orange peel, some sort of spice blend in the flavor. Interesting and balanced, nothing’s over the top in the aroma, but nothing stands out too much either. Little caramel malt. Some belgian type yeast in the body. Some light spicy taste, little sweet. Medium body. Lighter, kind of crisp carbonation. Nothing sticky in the texture, just a mild spicy orange aftertaste. Alright.. Flavors work reasonably well together but nothing stands out or impresses

Flaska från Systembolaget. Bärnstensfärgad vätska med ljust skum. Här snackar vi banan, både i doft och smak. Kryddigheten finns där. Inte så förtjust i banan men den är helt ok.
