3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap Schouskjelleren. Deep golden to amber with a large, creamy head with excellent lacings. Yeasty aroma with some yeast, fruits and mild spices (and a hint of alcohol too). After a while banana and clove becomes quite evident. Sweet, fruity, yeasty and spicy with a fairly dry finish with a light bitterness. Nice banana flavour! Fruity, pleasant and refreshing saison! Wonderful long and spicy aftertaste.
On tap at Henrik, Bergen. Pours cloudy golden with a thin white film on top. Aroma is spicy and flowery. Taste is moderate sweet strawberries, tart ripe fruits and weak spicy, thin yet good mouthfeel, high carbonated.

On tap @ Henrik. A near clear nice golden one with a medium sized heavy lacing white top. The nose is really fruity, some spicy tones, hay and melon sweetness. Actually quite nice. In the taste it’s more fruity, with a light sweet taste. It’s soft oily on the mouthfeel and it has a below average carbonation level. Really spicy actually and it gives a hint of alcohol. Nutmeg and cloves spices the thing up a couple of knots. Some soap and a quite peppery finish and aftertaste. Fair enough I guess. 05.07.2013 tmrmwel (2204) - Bergen, NORWAY - AUG 19, 2013
On tap @ Henrik, Bergen. Pours light golden with a big creamy off white head. Aroma is sweet, strange and fruity with a obvious banana presence, as well as lychee, flowers and citrus and some malty notes of toffee. Normal body with quite soft carbonation. Flavour is tart with lots of fruit such as apricot and orange peel, as well as some yeast lingering through the finish. ClubGonzo (5685) - Bergen, NORWAY - AUG 4, 2013

Komodo021 (7) - Cork, IRELAND - JUN 9, 2013 does not count
Aroma: A slight pepper note but predominantly a herb character that's quite savoury.
Taste: Peppery/Spicey slightly sour but pleasantly so. At the tail off there's a very welcomed return of those herbal notes.
Would like for the herbal character to be a little bit more present on the palate but a great representation of the style.

On tap @ Interval Sheffield.
Hazy mid orange colour with slight spicy and banana aroma. Quite smooth with a medium body and fruity banana taste. Light bitter finish. Was generally impressed. garthicus (2939) - Dublin, IRELAND - APR 7, 2013
Appearance: Hazy orange, thick quickly diminishing white head. Aroma: Yeast, farmhouse floor, slightly sweet yet sour, a little dusting of pepper. Flavour: big spicy flavour at first, makes way to some sourness, a little yeasty with a good lacing of hops, long lasting hop and yeast finish. Quite nice. maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - MAR 14, 2013
Keg Craft Beer Co N1 London 04/03/13. A hazy golden beer with a white head and lace. Lots of banana and rye notes. Slightly funky in the mouth but not by the expected standards of a Saison. Reasonable but certainly needs more funk.
