200ml draught at Baran Cafe. Lacing rings from a pearl white head. Hazy golden body. Aroma of sweet spices and mid-sweet fruits. Sweet and dry saffron spices to the taste profile joined by moments of ripe orange and almond. Mid-sweet spices to the ending. Medium bodied. Interesting and nice. (Bergen 02.10.2017).

Clear golden color with a fine off white head. Nice lacing. Fine intensity in the aroma, and you can easily spot the saffron. Medium body and a fine carbonation level. Dry ending and a mellow sweetness. Saffron is dominating the flavor also. But not over the top. Quite pleasant. But if you do not like saffron, this is not a beer for you.RuneStumo (2710) - Haugesund, NORWAY - JAN 12, 2016

12.01.2015. On tap at Baran Café, Bergen. Golden colour with white head. Very fresh with lots og saffron dominating the aroma. Flavour is the same; Saffron. Body is kind of weak. I dont know about this. KnutAlbert (6792) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 4, 2015
On tap at Cafe Baran. Lovely warming saffron flavor. A novelty, but a novelty that Works! But I think one glass is enough. Holmen1 (6475) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAY 22, 2015
Fra fat på Baran Cafe sammen med BF: lett uklar lys kobber med flott, varig skum. I tillegg til standard pale ale-inntrykk er safranen godt til stede (sammen med litt honningsødme), og dette gjør den til en pale ale litt utenom det vanlige. Den myke karboneringen bidrar til en interessant og god drikke.

On tap at Baran Cafe, pours a hazy copper golden with a small white head. Nose brings out the saffron above anything else - not much else to notice. Flavour is nothing but saffron. Pretty good if you like the spice I guess but I don’t think it works in beer. Not for me. DruncanVeasey (8283) - Nr NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JAN 28, 2015
Tap, Baran Cafe, Bergen, 27/10/14. Beautiful juicy banana, pineapple, unmalted barley and lime squash aroma. Witbier apricot capped with rocky white. Fresh clean banana, white pepper, perfumed coriander and lemon mousse suggestions. Fine brew. Palme (4823) - Bergen, NORWAY - NOV 1, 2013
On tap @ Baran. This is a cloudy dark orange-honey colored one with a nice heavy lacing and lasting off+white top. It smells quite alright; light fruity with grapefruit, pommelo zest, citrus, and some oranges. Not bad at all, but I’m having a hard time identifying the saffron - probably due to the beer being close to 0 degrees. It’s quite lively on the carbonation with quite a thin and almost watery mouthfeel. Dry flavors, and believe it or not, you can actually get strong tones of the saffron. More pomelo in the taste, grapes, grape stones, it’s somewhat dry also with a low sweetness factor. It also has a clear strange almost smoky touch this, but it doesn’t come forward before in the aftertaste. Would not go as far as to call it lightdrinkable, but I like the exclusive saffron touch. 18.01.2013 Inbreak (6532) - Loddefjord, NORWAY - OCT 25, 2013
