CacheManyHose (447) - HONG KONG - JUN 7, 2015
TAP Nøgne O food pairing for Matt's birthday. Bright hazy straw-gold. White head and thick foamy legs. Smells very nice - estery banana/spice, orange, yeast. Taste is similar. Very refreshing and more fruity/estery than farmy. Body is medium, fizzy carbonation, some citric tartness. Had with the pintxo de antxoa (yum!).

First beer at Nøgne TAP birthday tasting. Hazy opaque bright golden yellow pour. Aroma is banana clove cinnamon yeast. Taste is similar - smooth and farmy, but not murky tasting as some saisons are. Quite clean. Some sweet clover honey too. Tastes sunny.

metalspice (389) - Jevnaker, NORWAY - MAY 14, 2015
Uklart aprikosfarget med lavt, kompakt skum. Lukt av gress, karamell, knekkebrød og noe pepper. Gress følger i smaken sammen litt brøddeig. Lett bitterhet mot slutten. Behagelig og tykk munnfølelse.

Alengrin (3685) - BELGIUM - APR 26, 2015
Norwegian take on the reviving saison style, with medium thick, irregular, cream white head with decent retention; colour is a deep and lightly hazy ’old gold’ with vivid sparkling, more ochre-like and completely cloudy with deposit. Pleasant fruity and slightly ’barnyard’ aroma of red apple, peach, banana, starfruit, sourdough, hay, orange peel, white wine, yoghurt and chamomille. Vivid fruitiness in the onset, apple and peach with a light citrus touch, crisp and refreshing, medium carbonation, soft bready pale malt sweetishness, spicy yeastiness as in any Belgian saison, tingling and supple mouthfeel, finishing with a pleasantly lingering malt sweetness paired with a good dosis of leafy and lightly peppery, even somewhat quinine-like, ’deep’ hop bitterness, as well as a hint of warming, wine-like alcohol. Nice and a very ’typical’ saison indeed.

mcberko (10585) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 22, 2015
500mL bottle, pours a cloudy golden with a small white head. Aroma brings out Belgian farmhouse yeast and a nice doughy quality. Flavour is along the same lines, with farmhouse yeast, dough and cereal notes. Super fresh and doughy, with a lovely yeasty quality. Excellent.
