Nøgne Ø Saison 6.5%

  1. On a rare trip to Tesco to stock up on Fuller's 1845 I spotted these beauties reduced from £2.20 to 90p a bottle. Never one to pass up a bargain or to try something new I loaded up the trolley.

    I've taken a liking to Saison beers of late after several trips to France in early Autumn and find Saison an worthy antidote to those highly hopped IPAs that have become the trend.

    It pours an orangey colour with a fizzy head, bottle conditioned with a cloudy appearance, massive citrus, some honey sweetness and floral aroma. Delicious - I wish I'd cleared the shelf.

  2. I agree! I think this is a fine beer, but I thought it had disappeared from Tesco a while ago (I never bothered with it). I got mine when they were reduced to clear from M&S. I really liked it, quite a subtle beer, I thought, but very well done, and the ones I got had soft carbonation which I loved. I seem to recall thinking that was the best beer I had last year, or at least one of the best...I can't remember. You were obviously distracted from noticing that the Fullers 1845 has been reduced to £1.14!

  3. Whilst I'm not a fan normally of bitter beers, Saison seems to be a style which I like a lot, and this is one of the best I think, despite it being a long way from its homeland. Farcically drinkable for a beer with that level of character / strength!

    Notes the 1845 discount...;)

  4. That's a ridiculous price for 1845. If I'd paid that I would've had to recompense by buying more Fuller's Imperial Stout at £8 a bottle!

    Also in the bargain basement at Tesco was Redwell Kofra Stout at 74p for a 33cl can and Nøgne Pale ale at £1.03.
