mikkopen (1045) - Oulu, FINLAND - MAY 3, 2008
Cloudy orange-brown, head white and dense. Sour apple smell, reminiscent of cider. Flavour is fruity, a little sweet, with sour apples and mild hoppiness. A very interesting beer.

Bov (11866) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JAN 30, 2009
courtesy of Laurent Mousson - clear blond colour with a firm white head; slightly buttery and spicy, fair aromatic hoppiness; good malt body, some initial sweetness and a robust bitterness, very lively palate; long hoppy and slightly spicy finish; quite dry - lot of character and very pleasant

Sigmund (6637) - Tau, NORWAY - SEP 21, 2009
750 ml swingtop bottle, now available in Norway at Vinmonopolet. ABV is 6.9%. Pale golden colour, just a slight haziness, big white head. Nice aroma of "Belgian" (French, actually) yeast, with spicy / peppery notes. Some fruit and grass too. The flavour is first crisp and moderately spicy / peppery, leading to a fruity moderate sweetness, ending in a moderately hoppy and spicy finish and aftertaste. A truly enjoyable bière de garde - will buy again.

KnutAlbert (6665) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 6, 2009
Botte from Vinmonopolet. A good pick for once. Hazy gold, nice pop of the patent cork. Saison-like, a lovely blend of barnyard, sourness and fruit. Keep them coming!

notalush (5716) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 17, 2010
750ml swingtop - hazy golden pour, with fairly good head retention - earthy tartness and light acidity hit the nose first, but honey, wildflowers, and a slight muskiness follow behind that - these are what manifest in the flavor at first, especially the honey and wildflower character - a bit of bitterness arrives through the middle, and a faint kick of acetic acid perks the tongue up a bit - some toasted grain and yeast arrive in the lingering sweetness of the finish - another subtle, well-balanced beer from this brewer.

brainlair (236) - Maryland, USA - MAR 3, 2010
Bottle, thanks to ryan! Slightly cloudy amber with a thin head and a little bit of lacing. Smells great, with sweet raspberries, yeast and grass. Tasty, with a great yeasty barnyard flavor, and a nice bitter hoppy finish.

Travlr (21167) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAY 2, 2012
Came to Norway to try this one. Fliptop. Hazy golden yellow color, large white head. Aroma of barnyard straw and citrus with light spice. Taste is mildly funky hay, lemonpeel, spice, rising white bread dough. Nice.

fenouil (18) - courbevoie, FRANCE - MAY 19, 2016
Une bière francaise au top dans son style! Une blonde de caractère avec ses arômes briochés, ses saveurs d’épices. J’ai bien aimé, peut se boire au cours d’un repas.

Enjoyed it. Would drink again. Nice flavors, refreshing. A little buttery, maybe a bit boozy
