3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bought at Vinmonopolet Langnes in Tromsø. Pours a hazy golden body with a thick and airy white head. It’s good-looking! I immediately detect some citrus and herbs to the nose. Tastes of yeast, grass and hops. Crisp flavour which makes this beer quite refreshing. This beer is perfect after doing some form of outdoor work/activity. Will buy again!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750ml bottle from cogo, drunk 5/26/16.
Perfect appearance, sparkling copper-golden with a big, off-white head atop showing strong retention.
Vanilla, very light caramel, plentiful rustic grains and soft, herbal and peppery hops fill the nose.
Though it’s obviously bigger than a grissette/table beer, it comes off that way to me, with very dainty, clean esters and phenols and a charming malt character filled with baked bread, biscuit and a pinch of caramel. A touch sweeter than a table beer, but again, it helps offset the generally dry nature of all the characteristics here. Tight carbonation and a nearly creamy-like texture. Clean and certainly charming.
Even despite not caring for the Saison Extra (on account of the massive amount of off-putting specialty malt), I was immediatly drawn to the obvious high quality of their brewing. It’s good to see that really shine here. Thanks Christer!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a slightly hazy, medium yellow-orange amber colour with a long lasting off-white head. Nose: Fruity, coriander, lemon, some funky leather, hay and smoked cheese. Quite pleasant. Palate: Arrives with quite rich mousse/carbonation and a medium body. Then builds out with fruitiness in a rounded, soft style. The bitterness is moderate, refreshing and appetising and doesn’t really show until just before the exit. The aftertaste is medium long with a nice balance of freshness (orange acidity), soft bitterness and slight sweet notes. The 7.5% ABV is nowhere to be seen (or felt). Rather well made! All in all a "softly fruity" and appealing beer without any sophistication at this stage. I assume however that this might develop interestingly in bottle over the next 2-3 years.

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Golden pour, small head. Aroma of fruits and yeast. Soft carbonated, seems a little flat. Tastes of wheat and yeast, some fruit. Ok, but not as good as other saisons I’ve tried. I hope this was just a bad batch.
