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.

This is a Belgian Strong Saison brewed with rye, spiced with angelica seeds. It poured a nice dark amber with plenty of bubbles. The aroma was a strong sweetness with a hint of yeasty grass. The taste was very nice, strong sweetness with a slightly tart finish, lots of bubbles and a wonderful clean bitterness.

AirForceHops (2974) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 15, 2014
Draft @ Novare Res. Dark ruby color with thick lasting head that lined the chaise. Aroma is earthy, musty basement, yeast, pale malts, and some floral hops. Damn this one took me by surprise. Very rustic... Musty, dusty yeast, rye bread and hints of fruit. The brew is balanced with the floral hops and has a dry texture. Spicy finish.

Very well made traditional saison form Iceland. I loved the year I was stationed in Keflavik. I would love to do a summer brewery tour in this country.
