COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Zeven är vår version av en black saison. Ölstilen saison kommer från Vallonien där man under hösten och vintern bryggde ett uppfriskande öl som skördearbetarna skulle kunna läska sig med under den heta skördetiden. Utvandrande valloner och andra tog med sig den här vanan till Amerika där ölstilen kom att påverkas av nya influenser, som att göra den mera välhumlad, och med tiden blev den känd som farmhouse ale.

Nu för tiden, när förvaringsmöjligheterna är bättre, bryggs det saison och farmhouse ale hela året runt. Vi på Slottskällan ville göra vår saison mörk och när du häller upp den kommer du att märka att den är vackert rubinröd med dragning åt mörkbrunt. Doften är stor och trevlig med syrliga toner som snabbt övergår i mangoliknande sötma med brända inslag, för att sedan klinga ut i en diskret jästighet. Smaken är snällt sötsyrlig med brända och jästiga toner som ligger kvar länge i munnen.

Klassifikation: Black saison

Användning: Mycket god till olika ostar, ackompanjerade med dijonsenap och sellerisalt.

Innehåll: Två sorters malt: Pilsner- och svartmalt.
Tre sorters humle: Northen Brewer, East Kent Golding och Celeia.

Alkoholhalt: 7 %

pilsnerrogge (2497) - Finspång, SWEDEN - SEP 15, 2012
Bottled:
Pours dark brown with a rich head. Yeasty aroma with spicy and sourish notes. Flavour is yeasty, sourish and earthy with some vague spicy notes. Alcohol bitter finish. Saisons are supposed to be refreshing, but this one feels too heavy and is not something I would drink on a hot summer day.

Jonte (1413) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - SEP 14, 2012
Bottle. Brown colour with a beige head. Spicy and sour aroma with notes of licorice and caramel. The flavor is yeasty and spicy, lightly sour, almonds, some citrus, light caramel, lightly roasted. Light body. High carbonation. Not a big fan of this beer.

finol (2159) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - SEP 5, 2012
Bottle from Systembolaget. Pours brown and slightly see through, like coffee. Light tan head. Funky hoppy aroma with some orange cest. Odd but good taste, like a blend of a saison and a hoppy brown ale.

daje (2450) - NORWAY - SEP 4, 2012
Bottle at Grünerløkka Brygghus. A black saison, huh? Not a bad idea. Though it’s not black, more dark red, clear, with a light brown head. Aroma of pepper, citrus and toast. Taste is fruity, citric/flowery, with wood, grapes and pepper. Bittersweet grapy finish. Lacking a little saison yeast punch imo.

oh6gdx (20322) - Vasa, FINLAND - AUG 30, 2012
Bottled (thanks omhper!). Very deep ambery brown, close to black. Small beige bubbly/foamy head. Aroma is liquorice, raisins, ripe fruits and some mild farmyard along with some spices. Flavour is spices, earth, some mild farmyard and funky yeast. Rather big floral notes too. Ends very earthy. A bit thin in the palate for being 7 %. Pleasant as such, but seems like this is a rather alternative Saison...

Migmar (248) - Espoo, FINLAND - AUG 26, 2012
Brown colour, foamy head. Taste is fruity, hints of raisin, woody. Palate is quite fizzy, long bitterish aftertaste. Nice and original but not too spectacular.Tap at Pikkulintu, Helsinki.

peral2 (570) - SWEDEN - AUG 24, 2012
Bottle. SB. Dark brown color with medium but nice long lasting brownish head. A prominent malt "dust aroma". Tastes stale and carboi. Probably aypical Black Saison but its not really not my thing.

dj (521) - Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 24, 2012
Bottle, 330ml. A dark, cloudy brown pour with a medium-sized head. A slightly-woody, malty aroma with hop and berry notes. Fairly high carbonation. A hoppy flavour with some berries, woody notes and chocolate. A little sourness, reminiscent of lingonberry. A slightly burnt. malt aftertaste. Perfectly drinkable, but I probably wouldn’t seek it out.
