COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brekeriet Black Label
Brekeriet Saison is a Scanian saison receiving its special character by fermentation using a mixture of different yeast strains, particularly those of the genus Brettanomyces. The beer is carbonated naturally by fermentation in the bottle and therefore giving a thin layer of yeast on the bottom.

rickgordon (3841) - Göteborg, - APR 14, 2013
Draught at GBWF 2013. Cloudy orange colour with medium-sized head. There’s hay, brett and citrus in aroma. Body is gentle and soft. Fruity, woody flavour with brett and a whisper of smokey phenols. Really good and balanced!

Unde (288) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 15, 2014
Orange beer with fluffy head and nice lacing. Aroma is sour with zesty green apples, vanilla and citrus. Taste is quite mild compared to aroma. It has citrus, some sour flavors and apples. High carbonation with medium body. Aroma offered a lot more than taste gave, sadly.

SimonTja (78) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 12, 2014
Pours yellow with a dense white head. Smell of brett, yeast, and a sprucy citrusy herby input, not quite belgian yeast but reminding of it. Taste is a lot better than aroma, actually super good, first of all it’s super balanced, and has a great mouthfeel, perfect amount of dryness, maybe just a tiny bit too sweet, a bit of herby input with some bubblegum, and a barnyard feel, reminds me a bit of Dupont Avec les Bons Voeux, but it’s 6.5% and a probably the best saison i’ve had at 6.5%.

FatPhil (8564) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 11, 2014
Keg (Pikkulintu, Helsinki)
Spicy aroma, christmas spices, clove, orange or persimmon. Pale orange, small tight head. Sweetish palate, quite high carbonation. Don’t think swirling would help this, it would just become flat and sticky. Taste not far from the aroma, yeastier, harsher, and the spices a little more subdued. After a swirl it didn’t bcome too sticky, fortunately. Still, a sub-par saison.

daje (1858) - NORWAY - APR 7, 2014
Bottle. Unclear golden body, small white head. Aroma is spicy, clove and coriander, witbierstyle, with traces of barnyard. Taste of funky yeast, ripe apples, anise, a bit sweet. Finishes with a funky lemon and spicy aftertaste. Not bad.

Theydon_Bois (6986) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - APR 2, 2014
Bottle at Jerntorgets Brygghus, Goteborg, 21/03/14. Hazed orange amber with a big old off white head of bubbledom. Nose is bitter orange, apricot, straw, spice, lemon rind, earthy twang, apple skin. Taste comprises mandarin, orange marmalade, straw, pinch of spice, apricot, jammy tropicana. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close with a grassy linger. Crisp and refreshing saison, solid stuff.

mjs (4277) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 26, 2014
(Bottle, 0.33 l - batch nr 27 - BB 2015-11-22, at Pikkulintu, 20140326) The beer poured deep amber and clear. Its head was white, large and it lasted long. Aroma had spices, fruitiness,sourness, berries and malts. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were fruitiness, berries, sweetness, sourness, spices, malts and bitterness. Aftertaste had sweetness, berries and bitterness. The berriness was unpleasant and perhaps the yeast should have had more time to eat the sugars.

MattiasA (612) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAR 23, 2014
Bottle from Systembolaget. Aroma is dominated by cooked vegetables (DMS?), honey, sausage and red apples. Might be defected, the vegetables were off-putting.
