India Saison is the hoppy, crisp and refreshing result of a north south collaboration. Classic Belgian malts and yeast, pungent Australian new hop varieties and clean Norwegian water. Served chilled and enjoy with cheeses and charcuterie. This product is bottle conditioned and has a slight sediment at the bottom of the bottle.

Pours a cloudy/hazy orange colour, with a foam head quickly dissipating to a thin lacing. Love the belgian yeast and menthol aroma with this beer, it’s a great preparation for the slick, sweet sasion taste that gives way to a surprisingly hoppy IPA finish. I hope these Bridge Road-Nogne collaborations continue so more great beers like this and the aurora beers are created, and Nogne gets on more bottleshop shelves throughout Australia!

"Great balance of earthy, funky said on yeast and bright hops giving this a spicy, tropical fruit flavor and a dry, bitter finish. A little too much effervescence and a ring of sludge prevent even higher scores."

Cloudy dark yellow. Delicate white head and lace. Moderate light hop nose. Strong smooth tasty hop, hint of Apple and nice. Belgian yeast spice mingle towards the finish and long aftertaste. Very drinkable. Saison character picks up with each sip. Bit of a sour note in the gums.

UXO (670) - CANADA - SEP 3, 2014
Pours a cloudy pale gold with a short white head diminishing rapidly to a thin skim, light lacing. Nose is Belgian yeast, citrus and piney hops, light hay and barnyard funk. Taste is mildly sweet, bitter and slightly sour and spicy. Medium body and slightly creamy, with low carbonation and an intensely bitter lingering dry finish. A sort of strange beer, that grew on me after an initial period of bafflement. Ultimately, though, it’s exactly what it says on the label, having characteristics of both IPA and saison. I think I want another one...

on tap at braukunst live 2014 at my favourite stall for the day. lightly hazed orange colour with a lasting white head; aroma of chalk, haybale, lemon menthol; some fresh grassiness, lemon meringue, green pepper, good whack of bitterness; interesting and unpredictable but still clean

Saeglopur (733) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - AUG 19, 2014
Draught at Beer Temple, Amsterdam. Orange, hazy body, with a big, creamy, rocky, white head. Aroma of yeast, citrus, apple, orange, spices, grass, some bubblegum and candy like sweetness. Taste is bitter, sour, spicy and dry, but still smooth because of the good balance, with about the same aromas. Mouthfeel is medium, creamy, with almost no carbonation and it finishes bitter, dry, spicy and a bit sour. Very good! Refreshing, crisp and both Belgian spicy and hoppy citric.

Draught @ BeerTemple, Amsterdam. Like a summer meadow: grassy, buttercups, little piss... Nice full head, hazy yellow. Heavy hop finish. Nice!

pkomar (218) - Poznan, POLAND - AUG 17, 2014
Bottle into glass, bought @ Centrala Piwna, Poznań. Review from beginning of June. Hoppy aroma, citrus fruits mixed with belgian aroma - very enjoyable. Pours clear yellow with rich, white head. Medium bitterness, a bit spicy. Drinkable beer - hard to believe it’s 7.5%. Amazing stuff - would love to drink it again.

Clear sense of hop in the aroma and lotmore in the taste. Very good body and appearance. Thin ringed foam. Very very good beer.
