On tap at Crowbar. Hazy golden to orange with a white head. Very floral aroma with fruits, malt, citrus and hints of yeast, soap and spices. Different and quite strange, lots of unfamiliar flavours, but refreshing and flavourful. Medium sweet and floral with a light bitterness in the finish.
Medium creamy offwhite lasting head. Hazy opaque orange body. Tropical fruit and lemongrass aroma with vaguely perfumy notes. Dry-sweet mealy lemongrass taste with spicy tropical fruit notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, mealy mouthfeel. Dry-bitter spicy wooden lemongrass aftertaste with minty orangey notes. Really nice. Well balanced and highly sessionable. (0.2l draft at brewpub.)

Orange hazy, white head. Smells of yeast esters, malts, orange zests and soap. Ligth sweet, fruity, yeast flavors and nice malts. Medium bitter, quite zesty. Odd creation, the soap aroma is a bit weird. Stillo a very good drinking experience. Please keep up the experimental brewing
Appearance: Cloudy golden color with a white head. Ok lacing.
Aroma: Floral and citric hoppy.
Palate: Medium body. Slightly sweet and some bitterness. Average carbonation.
Taste: Mild fruity and citric hoppy with a long fresh hoppy tail. Some spicy notes but no soap as Mr Visionthing found in his glass. Lucky me. I do not like soap.
Overall impression: Fresh and nice Saison. I have to try and find some more of this style. I have not tried to many of them. Lovely!
Personal stats: On tap at Crowbar & Bryggeri in Oslo, Norway.
