Pours clear deep golden with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, yeast, wood, alcohol, oak, grape and mango. Taste is medium sweet and light to medium bitter with a long warm, oak, yeasty and fruity finish. Body is medium to full, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.

_angst_ (2688) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUN 16, 2014
Bottle bought @ bierkompass.de. Pours tiny hazy amber with a big frothy offwhite head that slowly dissipates while leaving lots of thick sticky lacing on the glass. Smell is fruity and tiny funky with biscuits, leather, heavy chardonnay wine, moist wood, barnyard, hay, dry soil, overripe lemons, plums, white raisins, lemon zest and hints of rubber. Taste is slightly sweet, slightly bitter, phenolic and funky with biscuits, sweet dark bread, white raisins, leather, hay, chardonnay wine, moist wood, kumquats, rubber, apple skins, pear skins, orange zest, lemon zest, barnyard and alcohol. Mouthfeel is tiny dry, tiny tart, tannic astringent, tiny boozy and medium bodied. Finish is tiny sour, slightly bitter, phenolic and tiny funky with biscuits, dark bread, raisins, plums, hay, dry soil, barnyard, leather, rubber, alcohol, orange zest and lemon zest. Barleywine-esque biscuit raisin saison... Not what I was hoping for...

On tap at Henriks. It’s a lightly hazy one, golden in color and with a dense, finger thick light beige head leaving curtains. Lots of oak and grapefruit on the nose, mango and some white sugar. Bitter and dry on the palate, with a decent carbonation. Vinous and citrusy flavor with lots of grapefruit. Bitter finish with grapefruit zest and some pineapple. Quite nice this one, but sort of weird. Can’t really decide if I like it. 140615

Keg at the vintage. Huge grape nose, fruity wine, taste is overwhelming dry white wine, very sweet, some toffee, fruity. Wine barrel dominates but tasty.

ansalon (1321) - Stockholm, SWEDEN, SWEDEN - MAY 15, 2014
Bottle from Mikkeller Bottle Shop. Pours amber with a very large, quickly settling frothy white head. Aroma is honey, citrus, gooseberry, kiwi, white wine, tartness, grass. Just a lovely aroma with just the right amount of tartness. Taste is honey, gooseberry, kiwi, vanilla, slight roasted notes, grass and a great amount of citrusy flavors. Mouthfeel is tart and sprightly with high carbonation. Aftertaste is kiwi, gooseberry, honey, slight oaky notes. This might be the perfect marriage between saison freshness and white wine barrel-aged depth and oaky, vanilla and earth notes. Incredible. Really Amazing!

Draft @ Beertemple. Aroma is dry peppery fruit covered in wine and oak. Flavour is quite dry yet still a bit sweet, spicy with a hint of malt. Nice one!
