3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at the brewpub. Pours dark as Coke with a moderate sized off-white head. Aroma of roasted malts,resiny and fruity hops, interesting and inviting. Taste is fresh dark roasted malts, high carbonation level brings the hops up front, lingering dry hops mixed with liquorice and mint in the aftertaste. A tasty brew indeed, saison or not.

On tap @ the brewpub. Dark brown, almost black body with a fine, dense beige head. Gentle and delicate aroma of light roasted malt, citric fruit, toast and typical saison yeast. A bit surprising in flavor, a nice combination of saison and a light stout with the hop profile from American pale ale or even a hint of a black IPA. Still none of these and rather unique. Sweet light roasted malt, fruity hops, delicate yeast flavor and a rather dry bitterness. Medium body and a nice aftertaste with a same flavors fading out. Exiting and pleasant.

24.01.2013. On tap at the brewpub, Christianssand Brygghus. Black colour with tan head. Strange beer. Aroma of something that reminds me of thea and spices. Lots of flavours with medium body and lots of hops. Aftertaste is dry and bitter with notes of more spices. Body like a porter, hops lie an IPA? I dont know.

On tap at the brewpub. It pours a very dark brown body, next to black, and a small, creamy, beige head. Nice lacings too. The aroma has a delightful citrusy touch, grapefruit and some orange peel, as well as a roasted note, hints of liquorice and a yeasty note. It’s creamy and full-bodied on the palate, and quite bitter tasting. Some roasted malts, a hint of liquorice and medicine, some yeast and quite a lot of grapefruit. The bitterness lasts for a good while, kept company by roasted malts and a faint hint of liquorice, medicine and yeast. A really pleasant one, wasn’t hard to determine whether I’d have another one our not. 130107 Geokkjer (7643) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 20, 2012
