Saison brewed with rye, spiced with angelica seeds.

Í Vallóníu, Frćnskumćlandi hluta Belgíu, fćddist bjórstíll sem gjarnan er kallađur Saison eđa "árstíđ". Bjórinn var bruggađur á sveitabćjum handa verkafólki á sumrin. Skađi sćkir innblástur í ţennan stíl. Viđ bruggunina á Skađa er bćtt rúg og íslenskri ćtihvönn, sem ýtir undir ţann kryddkarakter sem einkennir stílinn.

larsga (6446) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 22, 2015
Medium offwhite head. Clear amber body with carbonation. Mineraly earthy floral aroma with barnyard notes. Dry-sweet mineraly fruity floral taste with spicy notes. Mid-bodied. Sharpish, fizzy mouthfeel. Dryish earthy barnyard and fruit aftertaste with caramelly metal notes. Not really perfectly composed, but still nice. Way too much carbonation. (0.33l bottle, from Vinbuđin Kringlan, Reykjavik.)

Reimer96 (1427) - Alberta, CANADA - OCT 28, 2014
Pours a hazy Auburn color with a huge frothy tan color head. Aroma of spicy Belgian yeast phenols, pepper, fruity esthers, sweet berries and some spiciness from the rye. Taste is Belgian farmhouse funk, spicy rye malts, sweet berries, pepper, phenolic cloves and sweet fruitiness on the end before finishing dry and with a balanced farmhouse funk. Excellent bold bodied saison that’s complex and balanced.

yngwie (14703) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 25, 2014
Bottle. It pours a finger-thick creamy off-white head over an almost clear, dark golden body. The aroma is quite fruity-sweet, with some spiced, peppery notes and yeast hints. Phenolic hints of smoke. It’s medium to full-bodied, with quite a lot of carbonation. Semi-dry. Pale malts, some alcohol notes, a spiced touch and a fine bitterness in the flavor, lasting for a good while. Interesting more than good, but sure drinkable. 141025
