COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Blonde opalescente coiffée d’une généreuse couronne de mousse. On trépigne en humant ses arômes complexes d’agrumes et de fruits de la passion qui dévoilent les prémisses d’une satisfaction future. La bouche offre les mêmes fruits, parallèlement au goût d’épices produits par une levure saison authentique. Il en résulte une bière désaltérante, combinant avec un charme certain le flair du Nouveau Monde et la rusticité du vieux continent.

Taste is tonic water, pale biscuits, dried flowers, some caramel sweetness, papery dryness. Not bad.

Rune (11036) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 18, 2015
Draught, sample tray at Cafe Sara. Hazy golden body, lacing rings down the glass from a small white head. Grapefruit and ripe fruits on the nose. Taste of blossom fruity cocktail added by yeasty fruitiness and mid-dry citrus shells to the ending. Soft carbonated. Fine drinkability. A fresh and tasty saison (Oslo 11.12.2015).
