COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Anche la Natura, a volte, sbaglia. Nera, impenetrabile e profonda, sormontata da un’’abbondante schiuma. Effluvio di frutta rossa, quasi di uva e di anguria, poi di scorza d’’arancia, prima di un tocco di leggero tostato. In bocca scivola via veloce, con corpo leggero, dissetante e ancora fruttata, salutando con un finale in cui l’’amaro erbaceo ed il torrefatto si inseguono senza trovarsi.

KansaiBeerLvrs (2855) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JAN 17, 2015
Bottle brewed at Toccalmatto from World Beer Market. This collaboration between Toccalmatto & Extraomnes called Tainted Love is a 4.7% saison that I got for a song as it was best before Jan.1st 2015 - I figure a few weeks won’t do it any harm. Once I saw the name all I could think of was that son... Tainted Love... When I read it was a saison I expected something light & golden not this brooding brown beast with the thick fluffy light beige head. The nose is tart berries, mint with some acidity. Medium bodied. The taste is cocoa powder, mint herbalness & has some complimentary acidic tart fruitiness. A strange hybrid of a beer but it works well enough - tasty.

Bottle. Dark brown body with a beige head. Aroma of flowers, malt, spicy yeast. Taste is dry and crisp, spices, herbs, a bit thin and weak. Mild roasty and herbal finish. Not very saison-ish, a bit strange.

adster (504) - HUNGARY - AUG 31, 2014
Tűéles fenyőlevelek aromái és hegyes, savanykásan gyantás ízek egyvelege. Kevés pirított él teszi még különlegesebbé az egyébként is igen tarka összhatást. Sötétbarna színű saisonként igazi kuriózum volt elfogyasztása, a típus ugyanis nem túl gyakori a palettámon. Ezt az exkluzivitást íze is ügyesen alátámasztotta. Bravissimo!

Deep brown, almost cola like color. Dense head. Nice funk on the nose. Much drier than I expected. An odd style but quite enjoyable.

Vaiz (3740) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAY 27, 2014
Bottle in Italy. Dark brown pour, foamy off-white head. Aroma is quite spicy, slightly hoppy fruits, a bit earthy and a hint of funk. Flavor is quite bitter floral hops, somewhat roasted and quite messy. Initially more like a black IPA, but a little more spicy. Strange brew, not really my style I think.

Ragnampiza (663) - Rome / Lecce, ITALY - MAR 18, 2014
330 ml bottle from beer-shop.it served in a tulip glass. Dark ebony, with some purples tinges, and a huge, fluffy, forever lasting light beige head. Excellent lacing. Despite the colour, very typical saison smell: earthy and spicy sweetness, mild yeast interference, light fruitness, and maybe just a hint of roasted components.Perhaps some light funk as well. Unexpected tartness during the first sip, followed by fruity notes, quite hoppy (citrus) and finishing roasted and slightly smoky. Tart, powdery and fruity aftertaste. Average carbonation, light body and dry, creamy texture. Very different from the others dark saison that I tried, but interesting and tasty.

UPDATED: MAY 18, 2014 Dark brown color, a generous amount of thick off white foam. Very rich fruity aroma with a lot of grapes and some citrus that comes out as the beer warms up. Taste starts with a nice sourness followed by dark malts, some toasted notes and orange peel. Finishes with a very good resinous, hoppy bitterness. Excellent.

Bottiglia 33cl, comprata da ilbeershop.it è bevuta a casa. Marroncina con copiosa schiuma. Fruttata e secca, peccato non esca quasi torrefatto... Comunque buona ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhold
