Nøgne Ø Saison

Nøgne Ø (Grimstad, Norway) Saison. 6.5% ABV.
A combination of wheat and lager malt, East Kent Goldings and Crystal hops, and Belgian yeast. This is a highly refreshing saison with a beautiful hazy straw color. It's slightly tart up front, and finishes with a bit of a soapy flavor, that nonetheless grows on you in a good way. By any standard, this is a great saison.
