Bottle (Stockholm Beer Festival 2014) - Golden in colour. Lemon, yeast and spice in the aroma. Tangy taste with notes of lemon, coriander and yoghurt. I am not familiar enough with angelica to have been able to detect it much in this beer but I am sure it’s there.

On tap on Micro bar, Reykjavik. Hazy amber with large, fluffy off-white head. Fruity and yeasty aroma with Belgian notes, floral and spicy hints and mild malty. Moderate to medium sweet with nice fruity and yeasty flavours and a fairly light bitterness. Well balanced and quite delicious! Nice Icelandic saison.

This is a Belgian Strong Saison brewed with rye, spiced with angelica seeds. It poured a nice dark amber with plenty of bubbles. The aroma was a strong sweetness with a hint of yeasty grass. The taste was very nice, strong sweetness with a slightly tart finish, lots of bubbles and a wonderful clean bitterness.
