3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Vinmonopolet in Valkendorfsgate, Bergen. Cloudy deep honey-hued body with a big creamy off-white head. Aroma is saison yeast, apricot, flowers (dandelion, perhaps?), sweet grass-like tones, coriander, pale malts and hints of cinnamon. Complex and intriguing. Taste is sweet floral heather, with subtle and not-so-subtle spice elements in fiery interaction: clove, banana, coriander, grass, hints of citric peel and herbs. Some white pepper in the back. Nice. Creamy and full mouthfeel. A very nice saison from Kissmeyer, although its complexity does tear on the drinkability after a while.
