COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
starting with a base of German wheat & pale malts this crisp slightly hazy foundation was then accented with a blend of Sterling & Citra hops providing a intricate blend of herbal grass & tangerine citrus flavors and aroma. to pull this all together and to complete the ’cleansing’ aspect of my vision i gently finished the ale off with a touch of white sage, lending a mild earthy spice character to the blend. of course let’s not forget our house saison yeast that brought all the elements together leaving a dry yet intricate finish.

750ml bottle - gorgeous label. Pours a foggy gold with white head that thins slowly. Crisp, bright citrus/nut aroma. Great big wheat body carries a complex bitter, lemon with lingering salt. A fairly 2 dimensional beer but quite enjoyable.

Flaske fra vinmonopolet vika. Lys gylden, disig. Hvit skumtopp. Smaker gjær,frukt, krydder. Vet ikke hvordan salvie smaker. Ganske god saison-wit eller hva det enn er....

Deep golden pour with white head. Nose of meaty citrus, yeast, and candy. Flavor is bright lemon citrus with lightly sweet candy, before fading quickly to bitter citrus rind and mild herbal hops. Finishes dry with ample carbonation. Really nice.
