4.08/5  rDev +8.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: clear orange with a one finger head. Some moderate lacing develops.

Smell: little yeast and some light plum sweetness. A hint of citrus comes through too.

Taste: caramel, plums, red apples, some yeast and a hint of funkiness. Little less flavorful than expected.

Mouthfeel: crisp at the start. Light crisp and a hint of dryness at the finish. Aftertaste is very short. Medium bodied.

Drinkability: very easy to drink this one, and it makes for a nice summer beer. Worth picking this one up to try.

look: 3 | smell: 2 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 1

Bottle poured into my large Gulden Draak tulip, the Saison is a cloudy burnt gold with a small white head that leaves light lace.

Smell is very spicy, before I even had a taste, I thought "uh oh". Orange juice beer, maybe passable for an heavy-handed Wit.

Taste is heavy on the orange peel, like a fruit beer. Curarcao I assume, it has bit of Gran Mariner syrupiness. This is just not what I look for in a Saison at all (or really any beer). Sorry, this is just too overspiced. This beer doesn't necessarily taste awful, I'm sure it's popular with teenagers in countries where it's affordable.

Mouthfeel is thicker and kind of soapy.

Drinkability is very low. This is mis-labed, it's a bad wit, not a saison. If you like orange juice and don't like beer, it's worth a try.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

This one's either not that good, or slightly skunked. Or both (for $9, I'm not pleased). Medium white head over a yellow-orange colored beer that's slightly opaque. Bubbles dissolve down quickly leaving a very fine film on top. No lacing. Nose is citrus and skunk. Flavor is some mild citrus, malt, wheat, yeast, and skunkiness. This one is really disappointing. I don't get it either...brown bottle, no apparent issues. I'm pissed.

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Had this one with friends so didn't have a chance to jot down my thoughts. However, I tried to make some mental notes to help with the review.

This one looked like a saison. It had a nice cloudiness, but almost no head, which should have been my first sign that something was amiss. It smelled ok, with some spice and hoppiness, but not terribly strong.

It tasted, well, like not a whole lot. It certainly had more spice, and more depth than your average High Life, but not nearly as much as some of my favorite saisons. It also had a strange aftertaste that seemed a little off.

It felt appropriate in the mouth, and it was fine in terms of drinkability. I might have another, if I was thirsty and there was one sitting around. If someone brought over a bunch of these, and that's what we were drinking, I could polish them off, but I would definitely check the fridge to gauge my options. Overall, disappointing, but not a bad beer or anything.

3.8/5  rDev +0.8%
look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A- Very hazy light gold. with small off-white head that quickly dissipates and leaves a speckled lacing.

A- Fruity citrus aroma. Slight spiciness as well with a nice dosing of hops adding to the spice and slightly grapefruit aroma. A slightly skunky aroma as well, though this does not seem to be present in the taste.

T- Kindof blunt or thick as I start tasting it then the citrusy orange and lemon join the party. Overall there is a constant coriander flavor finishing off dry with a hoppy bitterness. Leaves a nice fruity aftertaste.

M- Medium body with low carbonation. When poured I noticed a significant amount of carbonation however this seemed to have escaped almost instantly as the bubbles found nucleation points.

D- Not exactly what I expected from a saison, but a very enjoyable brew.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

bottle from city wide in south bend. Pours a grapefruit-juice yellow-orange with a short white head. A cloudy beer, laces slowly and unevenly. Smells surprisingly funky (i admit to having read some of the reviews in advance and noticing a complaint about lack of funk - not a requirement for saison, by the way). Citrusy hops with a soured malt backbone on the nose too. Yeah, definitely some monkey-funk smell. Taste is a bit unblanced, with part of the beer wanting to go with a hop forward lighter saison direction, and the other half wanting to be a funky malty or wheaty explosion. It almost achieves a sort of orange zest and horse shed medium but it doesnt quite pull it off. Still, it has some good qualities. I like the citrus flavor and the mild tang. I just think it could have a bit more of a spiciness or something to bring everything together.

3.4/5  rDev -9.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

Pour: Half liter bottle to tulip glass. A hard pour produces a cloudy orange beer with only a small small white head. Tons of carbonation visible in the body of the beer. The head goes down quickly to scant lacing, but the brew itself looks thick and inviting.

Nose: Strong citrus bouquet: oranges and lemon zest. Dry spice notes of coriander and cracked white peppercorns. The aroma is not as strong as I would like, but characteristics are spot on for the style.

Mouth: Thick, chewy mouthfeel is the first thing I notice - quite odd for a saison. Orange flavor, hoppy, dry citric finish like grapefruit rind. Tons of citrus flavors complimented by the addition of coriander, notes again of cracker pepper. Unfortunately something about the mouthfeel is off-putting - it's not crisp or light, but actually more like the consistency of a thin carbonated syrup.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Full cloudy yellow/orange look with little head, just a nice looking saison.

Nose of lemon, some funk, esthers of yeast, somewhat sour smelling - just right for the type.

Taste does not carry the nose, a bit of a disappointment, needs more depth and doesn't carry the promise of the nose. Nice balance, but that's the best thing about it. Oh well. Has some fruit and a nice dry aftertaste, a bit of hops bitterness, not sweet.

Nice and heavy, good body, but doesn't make up for the taste.

Very drinkable, easy to have, but needs more flavor. Had expected more on the recommendation from my Arminetti's dude, nice try.

First warm day in RI (77 degrees), just finished a few hours of yardwork and felt like a Saison would really hit the spot.

Served in my Delirium Tremens tulip (love this glass). Poured a hazy pale gold. No head to speak off, but an off-white skim of foam and ringlets that quickly dissipated into a light slick with a thin band concentrated around the perimeter of the glass. Some lacing, but not much. Scent was very discrete; some yeast and citrus (perhaps grapefruit) and maybe just a hint of funk. Flavor is also very subdued and balanced. Taste similar to nose; however, flavors are more reminiscent of a wheat beer than a saison. Mouthfeel was very flat and limp, no carbonation to speak of. Drinkability is good. Brew was very refreshing, but not at all characteristic of a Saison.

look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

1 pint, .9 fluid ounce slim brown bottle. The usual bold Nøgne labeling and no freshness dating.

Looks a bit dull and sickly on the pour. Cloudy pale yellow, nearly flat body, with a film of white head on top. Smells nice enough, however. Dusty lime notes with a light funky yeast and mellow grain backdrop. The aroma mostly follows through in flavor. Lemon and lime ride atop slightly earthy yeast. Builds to a hoppy bitter finish with an unfortunate metallic aftertaste. The body is thin, rather limp, and barely carbonated. An thoroughly unimpressive beer. Significantly below average for this brewery.

Pours a bright yet cloudy pale orange color with an average head that dissipated into a light cap. The aroma is earthy; some pepper, light lemon and a good whiff of a banana bread. The taste is of banana bread, light citrus, and a light funk. A light hop bitterness in the end. Taste reminds me of a hefe with a little funk. Not tart like most saisons, has more of a yeast profile. Still very tasty though. The feel is moderate and has a creamy texture, finishes fairly balanced. Not a typical saison as I didn't pick up much in the way of floral notes, tartness, or the funk. However, still a very fine tasting brew.

From mini-bomber into NBS mug to kick off the race and the continued Euro-taint of the 24...

Cloudy honey/white grapefruit yellow. Active carbonation, thin sudsy head. I'd say it was a 4 'cause it's a little different but I gotta admit - it looks a little too much like something I'd leave at the doctor's office.

Yeasty amd nice, austere (piney?) hops. Orange and coriander aroma is well-distributed with some citrusy (grapefruit?) bitterness.

Clean-tasting balance of orange, vanilla and a little pine. Alcohol is way in the background - slight sourness to yeast. Very pleasant.

This hits the mouth more flat than preferred or expected from the visible carbonation. Tanginess adds the desired palate spike.

Definitely enjoyable for a sessionable offering - based on serving temperature would prefer to serve a little colder than usual. Nice stuff!

Thanks to Erin for lugging this one back from Atlanta for me!
Pours a glowing, cloudy, bright, light orange color. Just a sudsy sparse head remains after a few seconds. Smell is coriander, spices, along with bright and wheaty and lightly citrusy leanings. Taste is lightly spiced with similar flavors as in the smell, along with an interesting and unexpected, but welcomed light hop presence and a lightly wheaty flavor as well. Thin to medium bodied with average carbonation. Not too familiar with the style, but I enjoyed this one.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

Luminous lemon (when backlit) with much less yeast than expected. Perhaps it's hiding in the bottom of the bottle. The pearl colored crown is a tightly packed collection of glassy bubbles that doesn't look very Belgian. A smattering of sticky lace decorates the sides of the glass in the form of half-moons and assorted curlicues.

The nose is fresh and clean, with an abundance of lemony, herbal, light spicy, modestly musky aromas that are due to what smells like a wonderful Belgian yeast strain and two well-chosen hops (East Kent Goldings and Crystal). There's no horse blanket, since Brettanomyces isn't used, but there is a subtle funk of a different nature.

Since the first mouthful was good, but wasn't outstanding, I've decided to add the good stuff from the bottom of the bottle to the glass. The beer is now signficantly murky and the flavor should be more intense as well. At least I hope so.

My opinion hasn't changed a whole lot. Saison is a much better than average version that doesn't deliver the transcendence of an expertly crafted Belgian ale. That's okay, roughly 99% of the world's beer doesn't either. The body/mouthfeel is partly to blame, but that isn't the whole story. On second thought, it might be most of the story.

The malt backbone (wheat and 'lager' malt) does a good job of anchoring the bottom end and providing an underlying cereal grain sweetness rather than an overattenutated crisp dryness. Things begin to dry out on the finish, which is where the top notes of yeast and spice begin to find their groove.

Lemon, lemongrass and a potpourri of spices (clove, cardamom, white pepper) share the spotlight. I'm beginning to agonize over the flavor score, and wish, yet again, that 4.25 was an option. The beer's outstanding drinkability means that the glass will probably be empty before any firm conclusions can be drawn.

The mouthfeel is the only (minor) disappointment. Undercarbonation is the main reason. Saisons should be lush and fluffy, with an ethereal creaminess that caresses the mouth and tongue. None of that is true here.

Other than the amazingly delicious Porter and Imperial Stout, Saison might be my favorite Nogne beer to date. It's tantalizingly close to greatness and is already there in terms of drinkability. Cutting through the waffling, I will gladly buy multiple bottles in the future.

Beer #41 in my 366 Days of Beer Quest, tasted on 2/10. Thanks to GeorgiaBeer once again for this one!

A: Pours a light orange body into a tulip glass. A 2" white head dissipates quickly but leaves a nice layer on top. The body is hazy w/ yeasties & visible, active carbonation.

S: Awesome aroma, whoa. Could've fooled me for a Belgian. Prominent aroma of doughy yeast & barnyard funk give it that authenticity, while grains & husk (pilsner like, actually) along w/ wildflower & light candi sugar give it a subtle sweetness. Definite coriander and lemon notes as well. Fantastic.

M: Med. body, med. carbonation. Silky smooth body, a little crisp and smooth. Nice.

T: Follows suit w/ the aroma thankfully. Delicious malt base of wildflowers, clover honey & husk are in near perfect balance w/ the funky, doughy yeast & spices. It has some wit & pilsner characteristics, interesting. Leafy, lightly bitter hops (Saaz?) round it out nicely. Rustic but refined & complex.

D: This is deviously delicious, an excellent Saison. Great authenticity w/ a twist. Complex, funky and easily drinkable. This would kill for some seafood. Highly recommended & one of the best Saisons I've had.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Gusher!! Upon popping the cap, a large plug of foam begins to eject. Not quite an explosion, but a little messy.

Poured into a goblet where the foam quickly disappears; what a short life it lived...Glowing gold in color, the carbonation is hidden behind a veil of haze.

First whiff reveals leather, orange and a brett-ish mustiness.

Spicy and nicey! Good white pepper quality; a little tart in the finish. Yeasty earthiness work well with the spicy E. Kent Goldings. Wildflower honey in the finish.

This is a very quaffable beer. Complex enough to satisfy the Belgian lover, but tame enough to serve as an entry into the Belgian world of beer. I would prefer a bit more spice in the flavor. The only repellent from future purchases would be the price for 500mls....$8.50!

Mid sized bottle, no freshness nor bottling date info. Pours cloudy dull apricot, light and short lived near white head then leaves very fine, well detailed sticky lacing. Nose is of lightly sugared dried fruits, light honey blossoms and powdered sugar. Subtle, complex and well crafted creation. Light on the spices early and more of a wheaty, yeasty feel to it. Some pepper late, and soft but drying hops. Nicely done, I'm drinking it on a freezing winter day, but I can imagine this would be a nice summer accompaniment to a lazy lunch of salads, cheese, bread etc. No bargain, but worth a try for lovers of the style.

Ah hah! So that's how it's pronounced! "NUHN-ye"

Pours a clouded orange with basically no head. Nose is citrus and minor funk, but the citrus reigns supreme here. Flavor is inky. I know I have used the term before, but this tops all others. Calms a bit over time, or maybe I am just used to it. So we're definitely on a more robust edge here with some grass mixed in as well. Hearty. Feel is about standard. The usual slightly thin liquid touch and lower carbonation. This is a decent saison. I wouldn't really compare it to Fantome or any other of my favorites, but it will do.

Finally made it to Julios Liquors and they have many Nogne offerings. The first I've seen, so I picked up this pint+.9oz saison.

A: cloudy, dark straw with a fairly small white head. Quickly to a ring.

S: Smells like a saison. spices, earthy, barnyard hay. faint hops and a tad fruity

T: yeasty with a bigger malt presence than other saisons. pepper. damn tasty.

M: Fuller in body than some saisons. dry finish with some bitterness. light carbonation

D: nice. refreshing. I like saisons in warmer weather than Boston in February, but it's heft in comparison with others makes it all the more drinkable today.

I've only heard of Nogne O, but now that I have, found a source and tried this great offering I'll return to Julios to explore this brewery further.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

Pours with a three-finger thick, pale tan colored head that is made up of a bunch of large bubbled froth. The beer is a hazy, straw gold color. The aroma is an appetizing mix of grain, hops, fruit and yeast character. Aromas of orange zest, herbal nettle, grassy grain, a touch of honey-like malt, soda crackers, sweet ginger and white pepper are all easily noticed. The citrus character is quite pronounced in this beer, and looking at the label this must stem from the use of Crystal hops.

A soft, creamy mouth feel greets me as I take my first sip. A bit of carbonation adds a little zippy tickle and a touch of peppery carbonic acid that does not overcome the creamy mouthfeel. The combination of the creamy mouthfeel and the citrus-like hop notes make me think of orange-cream candies. Substantially malty with flavors of grassy grain, fresh crushed wheat, honey, and a touch of soda crackers in the finish. The beer is fairly sweet, though at times towards the end it dries out with the grassy grain notes, but ultimately the sweet malt is what lingers on in the finish. This lingering, honey like, sweet malt note is joined by a light, but noticeable hop bitterness and a fair amount of citrus hop character. Spicy yeast derived notes provide touches of ginger, a touch of phenolic soaked cotton ball, definite clove, white pepper and a touch of green apple.

Perhaps a bit full bodied, when compared to my ideal of a Saison, but I find the mix of Crystal hops, sweet grain and spicy yeast character to be quite pleasing here. I really like the use of Crystal hops here; sure it is not in the least a traditional Saison hop, but it reminds me of the Saison / American hop brews that I have bee fond of making over the past couple of years.

A - One finger of pure, white head dissipates quickly and forms a thin film on top of the hazy, golden body.

S - Spicy, yeasty character. Notes of pepper, lemon and lavender. It took me a long time to identify it, but there is also a strong aroma of chamomile.

T - Hops and alcohol up front. A perfumey lavender note emerges briefly, followed by more pepper and lemon flavors along with just a bit of tropical fruit (guava perhaps). Floral chamomile and grapefruit hop notes are present throughout, but intensify during the finish along with a sharp bitterness.

M - Moderately high carbonation and medium body. The finish is not quite as dry as some other saisons.

D - Extremely drinkable. I have had many beautiful saisons, but this is perhaps the most drinkable. Something about it just demands that I keep drinking. It has excellent hop character and some nice yeast notes. I feel like it is a bit lacking in the fruity esters that I really enjoy in this style, but some fruit character finally emerges as the beer warms. The only major complaint I have is the rather poor head retention. Overall this is a damn good saison.

Poured into a tulip a nice peachy, gold color. The yeast and wheat character are well apparent. Mildly hoppy. After taste lingers on the tip of the tongue and roof of the mouth. Refreshing and would be a good summer beer choice.

This is not a common style you would think of for a Norwegian brewery, but this is a well-built beer for sure. Nøgne Ø is more known for the darker brews of Porter and Imperial Stout, but this Saison is totally decent.
