Bottle from Bridge Road online store (November 2014). Cloudy pale amber/gold, creamy bright white head, pineapple, passionfruit, grapefruit, piney, grassy hops, some saison spicyness, medium bitterness, dry bitter finish. This just works, love it!

The best India Saison I have tasted to date. I usually find hoppy saisons to be a bit strange but this is perfect. The yeasty saison characteristics blend so well with the tropical/citrus fruity hops. Very refreshing whilst still remaining complex. Drinks way to easy for the ABV. Amazing creation from Bridge Road/Nogne. So much flavour!

I like, a lot. Pours a nice light copper color with a thin head with little lacing. It’s really yeast on the nose but there is a definite crisp hop presence there. The best part about this beer is either the initial flavor or finish, the hops are dominant but you still feel like you’re drinking a saison because of the yeastiness and mouthfeel. I want a fresh keg of this come summertime but considering this brew traveled several thousand miles to get to me I think it’ll hold for a few months. How can I be the 10th rating of this beer

BottleHound (156) - Sandnes, NORWAY - APR 16, 2012
UPDATED: JUN 30, 2012 500ml bottle. Extremely well brewed Saison. Aromas of caramel and grapefruit. Taste is slightly sweet with banana and mandarin, with some citrus and delicately balanced bitterness. Long bitter aftertaste.

Bif (2342) - St. Charles, Missouri, USA - SEP 7, 2012
On tap at the Brige Road Brewery. Served a nice pale golden color with a good head that fades quite slowly to ample lacing. Aroma is a mix of citrus and pine with a nice funk. Spice and an interesting fruit mix in the background. Taste is a changing mix of citrus, pine, a mild malt sweetness with a bit of spice, fruit and a nice dose of funk. There is a nice bitterness with a slightly spicy finish. Medium body, with an original robust flair that makes this beer stand out. Not a typical saison as this one has a bit of an IPA personality without being overbearing. An ineresting and very enjoyable beer. Well worth checking out.

Kavu (5121) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 7, 2013
0,5l bottle from Alko. Pours cloudy golden with a medium head. Aroma is malts, fruits and plenty of hops. Flavor is malts, some fruits and a huge amount of hops. Great!

Eructoblaster (4370) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 15, 2013
Bottle - 500ml.Beautiful, cloudy blond body with a thick, lasting white foamy head. Fresh, sharp hoppy aroma with coriander and citrusy hints. Alcohol is very well hidden. Its sharp hoppy taste carries coriander, citrusy, yeasty, and some grainy notes. Ends with a long, dry, robust bitter/herbal finish. Wow!

This beer is dominated by the yeast and hops. The malt makes it’s presence felt in the aroma as you tip the glass towards you, grainy and fresh smelling, but as soon as it hits the palate it’s sour grapefruit or green grapes. But the sourness also moves very quickly to long lasting resinous hop bitterness under the influence of the galaxy and Stella hops. Pours a slightly cloudy tan colour with thick foamy head. Great beer.

UPDATED: AUG 15, 2015 Has a hazy golden colour and a decent off white head which hangs around nicely. I really like aroma, it?s quite citrusy and fruity with a little bit of funk. The citrus taste also comes through, a bit like grapefruit for me. Good mouthfeel which matches well to the beer. Overall, I?d happily buy one again.
