is an independent informal site for beer enthusiasts, providing information on specific beer brands tested by guitarist Archaon of the Norwegian black metal band 1349.


The beers reviewed are rated on a scale ranging from 1 to 6 based on the following parameters:

  • Color
  • Consistency/texture
  • Fragrance
  • Elements of taste and aftertaste
  1. Disgusting (rather drink water)
  2. Poor/boring (somewhat drinkable, but nothing more than that)
  3. Ok (meets expectations)
  4. Good (above average and high quality in terms of taste)
  5. Splendid (top notch; a joy to consume every drop)
  6. Out-of-body experience (absolutely supreme taste and presentation)

Vinter_haandMirky and strictly yellow in colour- more so than golden, but little (if any) sedimentation. High level of carbonization produces large head when pouring. Lightly fruity aroma, not overdone in any way… Hints of citrus. Taste is fruity, more and more so for each sip. Starts off in a light manner, quickly becomes definable and eventually, an orange grows inside your mouth. Strong fruity taste, but also very clean, comfortable fruityness which is longlasting. Nice long aftertaste of orange too. A leader amongst the saisons I’ve tasted yet.
