Sample at Stocholm Beer & Wiskey Festival 2012. I love saisons, in this beer i’ll expect something more sourness. fresh hops cover the saison experience.

I really enjoyed this collaboration. It has some rough metallic flavor notes at first but when it warms upped it really shone. Nice amount of that floral/grassy Australian hop character. The alcohol is masked quite well.
