Bottle. Big goldings nose, citrus and grass. Oranges, biscuits. Deepmgolden orange, lace. Nice hops, more like a PA than a saison, lightly spicy, though. Very tasty. Oily, slick, soapy. Nice, but no saison.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Golden colour with a slight cloudyness. Has a estery aroma with spice and a fairly muted but present hoppyness. Also sports aroma of cereal, tea bag, and lees. I’m extremely surprised that this beer is this watery on the mouthfeel. hallow mid palate but has a spicy and yeasty flavour profile with a slight leafy bitterness. A decent brew but not the best i’ve had from these Norwegians fellers.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from the LCBO. Hazy peach-gold with a thick white head that leaves a lot of lace. Big aroma with lots of fruit (lemon, peach, apricot, pineapple), some grass and pepper, and a mild dry yeast note. Flavour follows - fair bit of citrus, a herbal tone, some coriander and white pepper, medium length dry finish with a mellow yeastiness and a hint of lemongrass & ginger. Good level of carbonation to carry the relatively complex flavour. A very nice beer.
