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.

Draft at Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2012. Pours a mildly hazy yellow with a fine, white foam head. Dry yeast and light grass on the nose. Medium sweet flavor, light tangy and zesty lemon, fine grass, yeast. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Dry to finish with a good bit of sun-kissed, grassy hops, pale malts.

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.

Bottle from Barley Wine Copenhagen. Pours cloudy golden with a white frothy head. Spicy aroma from the yeast, cloves, black peppers, hay, malts, notes of elderberry flower. Taste is clean, crisp, spicy with a smooth ending.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: NOV 10, 2012 Bit explosive, but still poured a nice hazy orange body and big stable soapy white head. Bottle sais to have it with cheese and charcuterie and I did exactly that. Fresh aroma, orange and citrus, barnyard yeast and a light malty base to support it. Dry palate, heavy but very pleasant carbonation. Good amount of bitterness, very rich flavours. Wow! So non-Belgians can also make amazing saisons? A revelation. And, quite bizar, tasted in Paris... Great brew, quality and interesting. (Bottle at Brewberry)

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
0,5l bottle. Pours hazy pale golden with a awesome head. The aroma from this beer is so awesome, fresh hops and blegian yeast in perfect matrimony. The same goes for the flavors. One of my top 10 favorites!
