Nice hazy amber/red color, one finger head is off-white ans quite short. Was in flu when rating but aroma is still ok strong, fruity fresh with pineapple, mango, papaija... very tropical, under this I found malting to be caramelly. Aroma is inviting and nuanced, good. Fizzy and bitter palate, flavor has also lots tropical fruits, grapefruit also, malting in bitter finish, medium body, light feel. I am pleasantly surprised. Best one I have had from this brewer, well done. And yeah..there is lots spices here like others have noted but I 1st missed: pepper, coriander, nutmeg? alkoholocaust (37) - HELSINKI, FINLAND - FEB 12, 2013
330ml bottle. Little hazy, reddish brown and frothy white head. Aroma: citrus, belgian style yeast and sweet malt. Taste: grapefruits, floral, tropical fruits and strong malt. Pretty full body with, fresh sparkly carb. Long hoppy finish. Quite pleasant. BitchPls (813) - FINLAND - FEB 16, 2013
Dark orange beer with a medium beige head. Wow a lot of cloudberries in the aroma when poured in a glass. With the sweetness and ripeness of fruits and berries it also has this bitter kind of aroma and yeast as well. The taste is a bit sour and bitter. Not too much sourness as I don’t like too sour beer but just greatly balanced. A hint of sweet caramel, toffee, grass, lingonberry. Medium body, dry. Good amount of carbonation. A very good beer from Stadin panimo. TET (3124) - Kaarina, FINLAND - FEB 6, 2013
A beautiful colour, cloudy, orange redbrown, medium and blond head. Aroma is quite complex and fresh, fruits with some tropical fruits, some sournwss and yeast, also lots of belgian spices. Inspirating and unique aroma. Taste of "belgian"fruits, lots of spices, citrusfruits, biscuity malts, hint of sourness. The aftertaste is quite dry and slightly herbal. Medium bodied, nice and quite high carbonation, fresh to drink as it should be. Very succesfully, complex and also unique Saison. BeerBaboon (2114) - FINLAND - FEB 15, 2013

Hazy amber colour. Sweet aroma with flowers and grapefruit. Taste is sweet malty and bitter, full of citrus and some belgian yeast. Surprisingly heavy body and smooth palate. Enjoyable, easy and perfectly balanced hybrid of American hops and Belgian beer. welho (93) - FINLAND - MAY 10, 2013
Bottle from Alko. Amber color, with high brownish head. Aroma of spruce, citrus and some pine. Sweet taste. Not much carbon. Very good! Unde (1114) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 5, 2013
Pretty awesome head, I should have been more careful while pouring! Orange looking beer, with lots of lacing staying in my glass. Lots of hops coming to my nose, some grapefruit and sweet exotic fruits as well. Not that much yeast in scent. High carbonation, quite crispy mouth feel. After taste has bitterness from hops and some warming alcohol. Really powerful yeast flavor, it has spicy qualities, did I pour in all the yeast sediments from the bottom of the bottle...? Hops leave under the yeast flavors, maybe a bit too much in my opinion. But my first Saison, so maybe I need some experience to appreciate the strong spicy yeast flavors.

UPDATED: AUG 4, 2015 On tap at BrewDog Helsinki. Pours cloudy dark copper with a little head. The aroma has hoppy floral elements but also citrus fruits and yeasty spiciness - hoppiness is definitely more pronounced than usual. Taste has some sweetness initially, later it is light sour and medium bitter. Hoppy and yeasty elements balance each other nicely. Flavours of citrus and spices combine with floral notes and a touch of exotic fruitiness. The palate is surprisingly smooth and medium bodied. A saison with a hoppy twist - refreshing, tasty and drinkable.
