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 %

stefannilssons (1491) - SWEDEN - AUG 24, 2012
Ölen har en stabil kropp med mycket jäst och syra i smaken och med toner av malt. Kolsyran är dock lite för kraftig och det tar en stund innan den har lagts sig.

TBone (12989) - Pori, FINLAND - AUG 22, 2012
Bottled 330ml (Beer Hunters, BB 03/2013)
Murky brown color, good brownish head. A bit cellary, tart aroma, light cara-malt too. Medium-bodied. Caramel, chocolate, vegetables, slight tartness and typical Saison-like spiceyness in the finish. Is this bottle in good condition? If so, I don’t like Black Saisons ..

Bottle 33cl. A hazy dark brown colour with a frothy off-white head. An aroma of roasted malt, caramel, licorice and spice. The taste i medium sweet and light bitter. A medium body, oily texture, soft carbonation and a medium long duration.

laiti (5954) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 18, 2012
Draught @ Olutravintola Konttori
Aroma is sweetish with lots of berries and hints of spice. Flavour is malty with sourish and tart berries. The saison here can only be observed through the yeast - and it gets overrun by the berries very easily.

olio (6495) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 18, 2012
cl bottle @ Konttori, Tampere.
Pours deep dark red color with medium-sized head. Aroma of berries, yeast, spices and malts. Flavour of berries, dark fruits, yeast, spices and mild caramel. Quite a mess of flavors but nothing seems to make any sense. A triple-dubbel-saisony mesh. Weird.

lusikka (6523) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 18, 2012
Draught @ Konttori, Tampere.
Pours a dark amber colour with a creamy white head. Aroma of strong sour lingonberries, nuts and some nuts. Flavour of strong grassy hops, nuts, perfume, sour berries and bread. Medium bodied, rough carbonation and a rough, malty, slightly sour finish. Not really a saison at all. Weird.

PalCabral (123) - SWEDEN - AUG 17, 2012
Bottle from Systembolaget. Pours dark mahogany brown, with a nice little beige head. Aroma is roasted malts and sour yeast, sweetish smokey kinda. The taste is malty, with distinct tastes from munchener and roasted malts. The yeast plays along, as does the hops whích provides an appetizing bitterness to the beer. I prefer the "classic" saison, and I don’t really think this is much of a saison, but nevertheless it’s a pretty tasty beer.

rarbring (1531) - Linköping, SWEDEN - AUG 14, 2012
Aroma: Smelling sweet and spicy, ripe banana, Christmas cake batter.
Appearance: A brown murky clouded brew, a dark off-white fluffy head that leaves much lacing and good curtains.
Taste: Starting sweet spicy bread, then banana, cardamom, clove and bitter orange.
Palate: Medium carbonation, small bubbles, oily and sticky, a dense body, a short coarse dryness.
Overall: Very spicy, very heavy sweet. The hops do not really balance that. But there is a lot of action in this one.
Note: Bottle 330 ml. Reviewed 2012-08-14.
