COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Editor’s note: Brewed by Ølfabrikken at Het Anker, Mechelen, Belgium. <br /><br /> The heart of this beer is an aromatic yeast from the Ardennes region in Belgium fermented at very high temperature (>30 deg. C). This provides the beer with a range of interesting flavor and aroma components and leaves the beer bone dry as a true Saison should be. Even though the beer gets its inspiration from the Belgian Saison brews, it has its very own Danish character from the use of Chamomile flowers and freshly picked thyme giving the beer a discrete tea-like aroma and a nice fullness. High carbonation and light body makes this brew uniquely refreshing. Ølfabrikken Saison Kamille is of course unfiltered, unpasteurized and refermented in the bottle like all of our beers. Only available in 75 cl corked bottles.

750 ml bottle sampled in 2009. Golden body with a nice white head. Mild, nice spicy aroma, slightly floral as well. Flavor is nice, quiet light and refreshing, delicate spicy and some yeast. Fine body and decent aftertaste. Nice Saison with a rather subdue caracter.

Cloudy yellow brown beer. Light dry palate. Mellow malt - tastes a little aged. Mild floral sweetness and then sweet fruit coming through at the finish along with some aniseed. Overdry and a slightly odd but a nice experiment.

Koelschtrinker (11063) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 8, 2011
Interessanter weich süßlicher Antrunk mit leichten herben Andeutungen. Angenehm mild gewürzig, die Kamille ist nicht sehr deutlich. Im Abgang etwas bitterer, auf mildem Niveau passend. Hintergründig kurz hell-malzig, kein kräftiges aber sehr erfrischendes Bier, das im Abgang zudem noch etwas würziger auf hellem Niveau wird. 9/8/9/9/8/8

yngwie (14146) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 28, 2009
Bottle, 75cl corked. Looking quite nice in the glass, with a clear golden body, topped by a nice white head of moderate size. Fruity, herbal nose on the hoppy side, with a touch of cellar. The malts are left in the background. In the mouth though, it’s more evident, leaving a grainy print, with herbal bitterness, some sweetness and a touch of cellar to fill out the blanks. Medium, quite dry mouthfeel. Easy to drink. Wonderful wrapping with a contents not matching it. Still, a nice beer. (090116)

tarjei (1954) - Bryne, NORWAY - FEB 24, 2009
75 cl bottle, at tasting with yngwie, gunnfryd and Beer2000. Batch # 260, BB 01.03.09. Clear golden to light amber color, fine white head. Aroma is spicy and very Belgian. Flavor typical saison, with fine spices. Very drinkable, and of course a shame that the old Ølfabrikken is history.

Bottle 75cl @ home.
[Batch #260]. Clear medium yellow color with a average, frothy, good lancing, mostly lasting, white head. Aroma is moderate malty, toasted, wheat, moderate hoppy, fruity, moderate yeasty, spicy - camomile. Flavor is moderate to light heavy sweet, light light acidic and moderate to light heavy bitter with a average to long duration. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. (200508)

janir (216) - Oulu, FINLAND - APR 20, 2008
Slightly hazy, honey wine-like orange beer has practically no head. Aromas: herbs, strongy sweet apple, berries. In the beginning flavor is very much like belgian ales and changes soon to some toffee and fruit-like with camomile. Maybe calvados-like also. Apricot in the end. Alcohol can be felt but comlex flavors conceal it totally from flavor. Very much herbs in aftertaste. Palate is much but softly carbonated and quite light-bodied. Very refreshing.

Bragesnak (5395) - Aarhus, DENMARK - APR 14, 2008
From Vignoble, Aarhus Bottled Alcohol well hidden. A delicate fruity aroma and flavor (from yeast). Camomille in flavor

Boutip (4868) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 17, 2008
Bottle courtesy of Thewolf: Poured a dirty beige color ale with a large pure white foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of spices and fruity ester is quite interesting with some light funky notes. Taste is also dominated by some light spices with some great fruity esters with a great malt backbone which may includes wheat. Full body with limited filtration and great carbonation with no apparent alcohol. Overall, I thought it was a refreshing example of the style with some good complexity to offer as well.
