3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750ml bottle from cogo, drunk 5/26/16.
Perfect appearance, sparkling copper-golden with a big, off-white head atop showing strong retention.
Vanilla, very light caramel, plentiful rustic grains and soft, herbal and peppery hops fill the nose.
Though it’s obviously bigger than a grissette/table beer, it comes off that way to me, with very dainty, clean esters and phenols and a charming malt character filled with baked bread, biscuit and a pinch of caramel. A touch sweeter than a table beer, but again, it helps offset the generally dry nature of all the characteristics here. Tight carbonation and a nearly creamy-like texture. Clean and certainly charming.
Even despite not caring for the Saison Extra (on account of the massive amount of off-putting specialty malt), I was immediatly drawn to the obvious high quality of their brewing. It’s good to see that really shine here. Thanks Christer!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a slightly hazy, medium yellow-orange amber colour with a long lasting off-white head. Nose: Fruity, coriander, lemon, some funky leather, hay and smoked cheese. Quite pleasant. Palate: Arrives with quite rich mousse/carbonation and a medium body. Then builds out with fruitiness in a rounded, soft style. The bitterness is moderate, refreshing and appetising and doesn’t really show until just before the exit. The aftertaste is medium long with a nice balance of freshness (orange acidity), soft bitterness and slight sweet notes. The 7.5% ABV is nowhere to be seen (or felt). Rather well made! All in all a "softly fruity" and appealing beer without any sophistication at this stage. I assume however that this might develop interestingly in bottle over the next 2-3 years.
