4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
On Draft at P town brewpub 2009. Aroma: Very aromatic. Lemon, orange rind and floral hops
Flavor: Long citrus and lemon finish that has no harsh bitterness.
Comments: This was the best of the batch with definite complexity in aroma and flavor. Outstanding on draft. I found it very good from the bottle (about 38-9 points), though not this good.

Fra plastikkmugge (!), dag 1 på DØE Lokomotivværkstedet mai-16, sammen med Steven: litt aroma av stall og krydder, og noe mer av dette i smaken, men den har for mye preg av kokte grønnsaker til å vekke interesse. Ble dessuten servert for varm. Klar lys gylden med kort skum.

Draught at KØ16. Malty aroma, almost caramelly. Clear dark golden colour. Good stable white head. The flavour is malty with a distinct bitterness. Sweetish. Tastes more of tripel than saison to me.

4.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Seven is an odd Saison, for sure. With pale, pils, and munich malts, it almost has a lager-like taste.Yet, the Saison yeast makes a very full presence in the glass with a fair amount of funk and fruitiness. My favorite of Seven’s feature was its spiciness. The hops are sticky and herbal, while the yeast propels some clove and coriander esters. The bottle’s suggestion to pair this with spicy South Asian cuisine sounds spot-on. Hell, I might need to make that happen.
