Very interesting nose - reminds me of a dark lambic but it then becomes apparent that its the spicy saison yeast reacting with the dark goodness. Interesting taste, tart, spicy, spritzy, saison like, with faint dark malty tones. Kiss of peated smoke as it fades away. But super dry as expected with the saison yeast. Lovely beer, impressed. Realise that it is a Saison and you will understand and loooove this beer.
Thanks to allovate for the bottle - This was hazy and dark brown with an off white head - Smoked malt aroma with some berry and woody notes - Smoked malt body with some woody and berry flavours in the back - The malt goes into the finish that lasts - This was nice gunnfryd (15652) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 18, 2015

Bottle. Shared by bergstaden. An unclear, dark brown beer topped by a dense, finger-thick light beige head. Some lacing. The aroma is on the malty side, toffee and a faint earthy and fruity-sourish/berry-sourish and smoked hint. Tar, caramel, earth, cocoa hints, sourish fruityness and some smoke and berries in the flavor. Some alcohol warmth in the mouth, it’s full-bodied and semi-sweet. Lasting finish. Nice indeed, but far from easy drinkable. 151001 Meilby (11830) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 10, 2015

330ml botte from Slow Beer. Worth getting this beer just for the label never mind the beer. Yet another collaborative brew and this one pours a light back tea colour with a thinnish layer of tan foam. Spiced fruit aromas of prunes, raisins and plums are strong and invite you in to and take a drink. Big, bold and bad ass in the mouth with mouth numbing flavours and very lively on the palate. Aniseed is strong in the flavour and aftertaste. NBird (626) - Perth, West Australia, AUSTRALIA - DEC 26, 2012
A dark brown saison pours with a small head. Smells of some roasted action, chocolate and fruity farmhouse ale. Tastes like a farmhouse ale, with more medium cooked fruit through a roast/toast finish. Have had a few of these now.
