3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Capone’s. Turbid deep gold pour with 1-finger white head. This one looks great, but not quite a 5. The aroma is hopcitric, with dry floral notes, slight barnyardy funky and cobwebby musty yeasty notes. The taste is dry, floral, citric, with subdued spiciness, some yeasty funk, and some fruitiness as it warms. Solid complexity in this, with a very well rounded mouthfeel. Everything just seems to go together as it should, which is very difficult to achieve for this style. I may sound like a broken record, but this is yet another winner from Nogne.

Bottled. Hazy golden color, short head. Aroma is very fruity, citrus and orange, bit hoppy, bit spicy. Fruity and bitter flavor, bit dry only. Not as cheesy as some other saisons, much more bitter. Very decent stuff.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle received in a trade with oh6gdx, shared with ozujsko. My first saison and my first norwegian beer. Nice.
Poured a murky ochre-orange colour with almost no head (the little there is is white). Lights spicy belgian stlye nose... lime, bananas, cloves. The taste is nice, sweetish. Grapefruit, pleasant spicey yeastiness, quite good hopiness, notes of rubber. Not as thirst quenching as one would hope but definitely a quality beer.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light murky beer with fine head. The aroma is spicy with a fine orangepeel thing showing through. The flavour is spicy and assertive with nice notes of orangepeel, coriander and a yeast flavour leaning towards a wit.
Not your everyday saison, but quite fine.
