COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Zeven är vår version av en black saison. Saison är ursprungligen en ölstil från Vallonien som efter en tur till Amerika, där den blivit mer välhumlad, har tervänt till Europa i form av en farm ale. Vi ville göra vår saison mörk, men låt inte färgen lura dig för den är inte besk och kraftig som mörk öl ofta är, utan frisk och lättdrucken, precis som en saison ska vara. Men varför kalla den Zeven? Det betyder sju på flamländska och står för alkoholhalten.

Bottle shared at a tasting at Ariel’s place. Thanks omhper for this bottle! Dark brown color with a beige head. Aroma of malt, lots of fruits, yeast, caramel, a bit of spiciness and alcohol. Sweetish flavor with light sourness, fruits, malt, dark bread hints and a drier finish. Medium-bodied. Not bad.

Linnet (1029) - Umeå, SWEDEN - AUG 5, 2012
Ar: soy sauce, coffee, roasted malts, brett, dark bread, alcohol, citrus. Ap: weak Brown colour, medium beige head. F: roasted, coffee, very dry, big bitterness, stablehouse aromas, licorice, alcohol, a bit all over the place, but quite enjoyable. M: average, Lively carbonation. T: This is actually better than the score lets you believe. On paper it should be a mess, but all the bold flavours actually work. Another convincing brew from Slottskällans!

Neeskens (328) - SWEDEN - AUG 4, 2012
Chestnut colored with a off-white head. It got the peppery and spicey aroma of a traditional saison but there is also a more untraditional caramel sweetness and touch of overdone popcorn, strange indeed. The taste is more within style although some extra caramel sweetness there as well.

hackobock (901) - SWEDEN - AUG 3, 2012
Bottle from Systembolaget. Pours cloudy dark red/brown with a dense off-white head. Some cloves, tart, roasted malts. Taste is vinous, tart with some roasted notes in the end. Leaves a lingering sour vinous bitterness that is actually quite unpleasant.
