Clear yellow with a rapidly dissipating head. Spicy hops and Belgian yeast on the nose. Taste is herbal hops, major Belgian yeast profile, a hint of banana, and cracker-y malt. Light and effervescent. Very good.

Pours a foggy straw with a finger of white foam. Aroma is lovely Belgian yeast esters, herbal hops and caramel, toasted, and biscuit malts behind. Flavor profile is biscuit, toasted, and nutted malts with herbal hops. There is a lovely addition of Belgian yeast esters. It has a soft caramel tone as well. It's smooth and sweet, with the yeast lending a little spice. Mouth feel is medium in thickness with a velvety texture. Overall, a fair farmhouse that balances sweet notes with light spice.

On tap at Skuli Craft Bar in Reykjavik. Didn't get much Belgian yeast flavor--guess that's why it's Nordic. Where's thyme? Decent beer, not cloudy.

Look: Pours clear amber and forms a body of the same, tiny slow-rising bubbles from the bottom of the glass. Forms a one-finger white head which dissipates to lacing on the rim.

Smell: Herbals from the thyme, citrus peel (orange and grapefruit), grass or hay.

Taste: Pepper, warming alcohol, a bit of yeast, toasted orange peel, mild bitterness on the back palate.

Feel: Round with prickly alcohol, finishes with a refreshing dryness which leaves the tongue watering.

Overall: A delightful saison which remains affordable even at Icelandic rates.

Bottle: Poured a hazy yellow color ale with a nice large white foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of light rustic malt with herbs and spiced notes is quite enticing. Taste is a nice mix of rustic malt notes with some herbs and spiced notes and a light dry finish. Body is quite full with good carbonation. Well brewed saison with right amount of flavours and attenuation.

L: Brillant Copper gold color with a small white head with an inch that stays on top and little lacing on the glass.

S: Extremely floral and spicy (definitely notice the heather and thyme) in the nose with light notes of orange. Very fragrant and inviting aroma.

T: Spicy peper mixed with heather and thyme and a light orange, balanced out by cracker malt and a light bitterness.

F: Light to medium body some prickly carbonation.

O: This beer starts with a wonderful nose and follows it up with a great taste. One of the best sailors I've had, wish it was imported to the US.

My friends went on a trip to iceland and brought me back some beer. This is the second beer I tried from borg. Ice cold it tasted better. Warmer, its frothy and kind of meh.
