COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Slottskällans Saison är en frisk och fruktig ale. Öltypen har sitt ursprung i Belgien där bönderna ville ha en öl som var ljus och törstsläckande när de arbetade på åkern, men samtidigt kraftig nog för att hålla sommaren igenom. Ölen bryggdes starkare och med mer humle för att bibehålla smakerna, som annars förgicks i vårsolen.

motelpogo (6692) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - APR 17, 2012
bottled, rbesg07 grand tasting. pale golden with a small but lingering head; only a hint of saison yeast character with a suggestion of cake dough; not very spicy or fruity for a saison wih some lactic sourness in the finish; nondescript

baggio (319) - norrtälje, SWEDEN - MAY 31, 2008
Bottle@home Appearance: Yellow with a small, white, head. Aroma: Nutmeg, Clove, Yeast, Grass. Flavor: Smoked malts, Citric notes, Bananas, Bread, Herbs. Palate: An easy drink with a nice crisp pilsnerlike bitterness at the end. Medium carbonation. Not at all what i’d expect from an saison but quite good none the less. Hope to be able to get this one again sometime!

rickgordon (3843) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - SEP 10, 2007
Bottled. RBESG. Golden colour, low head. Bit perfumy nose, with hay and sweet malts. House character is there as always, with a nutty feel to it. Lively mouthfeel with caramel, and in the finish, bit dusty.

harrisoni (13702) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 31, 2007
Bottle at RBESG 2007. It’s a pretty basic saison. Fine. Some hay, grassy, decent citrus hops.

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 28, 2007
A Mes rate: Bottle at RBESG. Golden colour with a thin head. Spicy malt with some slight sweetness and some fairly harsh hops. Slight burnt notes don’t do it any favours. A real up and down brewery for me.

DonMagi (5596) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 28, 2007
Bottle thansk to Rick, rbesg07. Aroma has lots of corriander and light spice, however the malt character is a bit raw. Taste is similar, the malts seem unrifined in some way but corriander is key throughout.

hopscotch (9151) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 3, 2007
Bottle... Clear, lightly golden ale with a small, frothy, white head. Smells a lot like peanut butter! Sounds nutty, I know (oops, pun not intended). Very herbal and phenolic as well with notes of clove or coriander and a light puff of campfire smoke. Leans on the sweet side of balance, flavor-wise. Light-bodied and fizzy. Short, herbal, crisp finish. A big SHOUT goes out to Marsiblursi for shipping this beer all the way to Florida!

boboski (1095) - Alabama, USA - AUG 2, 2007
Clear, light golden pour. A thin white head quickly and fully recedes. A lack of any lacing doesn’t help the diminutive appearance. The nose is almost all peanut butter, indicating old yeast could possibly have been used. I think actual peanut butter goes with beer about as well as mustard goes with ice cream, but in this incarnation it’s pretty interesting and in no way offensive. Underneath this sticky jelly-and-bread pal is toasted malt, coriander, chamomile and lavender, orange rind and herbs. Acidic-styled, earthy berry tinges dot the entire nosing. The flavor has plenty of herbal hoppiness, actually too much for the style, for me. Some chemical notes flitter about. Mild alcohol evident. Adequate toasty grains and just a glimpse of wheat malt, probably an illusion. Bitterness is mild to medium, sweetness mild. Acidity is medium-high, as is astringency. This really isn’t very good, but it’s still drinkable. The palate includes light carbonation, a medium body and weird watery pockets. Cool label, at least.

mgumby10 (1856) - Jupiter, Florida, USA - AUG 1, 2007
Courtesy hopscotch. Pours a clear, yellow gold with an extremely thin white head. Spicy aroma, some citrus, a little clove and some peanut butter too. The taste is slightly fruity, with a little funk, alot of spice, and cinnamon. Not extremely complex, a little sweet, easy drinking, and somewhat refreshing. Not a great saison, but drinkable.

Bottle.Clear golden color, with a fizzy creamy short lasting head. Aroma of citrus and grass and little yeast. Flavor is citrusy, and some small yeasty and herby notes. Palate is thick and crispy and very dry.
