3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at Den Gode Nabo, Trondheim. Pours light hazy golden with a big creamy long lasting white head. Fruity and flowery hop aroma with some yeast and spices as well. Taste is light bitter and acidic barnyard with a good malty body. Aftertaste is weak bitter with a lovely lingering medium sweet caramel. Another strong beer from Kinn.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Big offwhite head. Hazy amber body with lots of carbonation. Fruity strawy fresh resin aroma with pine needle was and flowers aroma. Wow. It really smells like resin from a fresh cut tree. Dry-sweet honey and flowers taste with spicy waxy wooden notes. Light body. Mild, delicate mouthfeel. Dryish mealy fruity floral aftertaste with honey and straw notes. Also faint barnyard notes. Lovely! Incredibly drinkable, with wonderful harmony. Nicely bitter. The fresh resin taste slowly settles as i drink. Absolutely amazing. (0.75l bottle, Den Gode Nabo, Trondheim. Labeled juni 2010.)

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, shared with Abstractbeer @ Den Gode Nabo, Trondheim. Body is clear light nougat brown with a big, dense white head on top. Aroma is mild, with pilsner malt notes, some faint hops and yeasty tones. Taste is also very mild; certain subtle fruity flavors does come forth but otherwise this is a beer with an ale-ish palate with a very pilsner-like flavor. Very drinkable, smooth and round. A well-rounded saison with a good composition. It lacks, however, the subtle flavors that is required to take a beer of this kind to a higher level.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: SEP 30, 2010 On bottle at Den Gode Nano in Trondheim, shared with ClubGonzo. Rated via mobile phone, therefore a minimalistic rating: Like a round pilsner, easy to drink, somewhat fruity. Dry. Not amazing, but not bad. A good saison, but uneventful. ClubGonzo says it better ! ^^

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at Hånverkstuene in Oslo. It poured a hazy yellow liquid with a small white head. Dry and fresh saison with a taste of yeast. A bit of funk. Very enjoyable and easy to drink. Promising start for this brewery.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Handpump at Den Gode Nabo, Trondheim.
Sweet and dry, a hint of barnyard. Short finish, ends up a bit too sweet. With a little adjustment this will be a great beer - more Norwegian Saisons are most welcome.
