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.

LoFi (1521) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUL 22, 2012
Bottle. Very dark reddish brown with a beige head that disappears quickly. Aroma: sour and vinous dominates but gives way to yeast and spices. Taste: yeasty and spicy, sour, chocolate, light licorice, lactic, dried grass/hay. Medium-bodied, high and prickly carbonation. Didn’t enjoy this so much - fresh and drinkable according to the label, but at least not this bottle.

Draught @ Pikkulintu. Dark brown with an off-white head. Roasted aroma with citric fruits and some acidity. Roasted malt, some hops and fruity yeast in the flavour. Somewhat dry and burned aftertaste.

Got one from tap and was srprized to see the dark brown and clowdy liquid. Its quite carbonated and has a decent malty taste with a light hop finish. Came back the other day to have one more glass of it.

rosenbergh (6096) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 14, 2012
Draught at Kuikka, Helsinki, Finland. Murky dark brown colour with small tan head. Aroma is nice brown ale saison fusion with yeast, mild tartness, chocolate, mild caramel, mild hops and toasted malt. Flavour is dry toasted malt, sweetish caramel, chocolate, dryish hops, yeast and cola like elements. Nice fusion brew with high carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were spices, sweetness, chcolate, roasted malts, allspice, malts and bitterness.

Draught @ Oluttupa Viisi Penniä, Helsinki

Pours murky brown with a smooth foamy head. Aroma of toasted malts, bread, spices and hints of earthy notes. Taste is malty and slightly sweet with some spices and cellary notes. Finish is slightly fruity and sticky sweet. Unbalanced and a bit messy.

hirigalzkar (2114) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 5, 2012
Bottle. Pours greyish brown with a large but short lasting off white head. Typical saison notes like clove and berry seeds in the aroma. There is also some chocolate there. Not as fresh as saisons use to be. The taste has a lot of chocolate in it. In fact, this saison is a lot more choclaty than the Fantome Chocolat. The berry seeds are there in the taste aswell. It’s a big bodied (for the style) and smooth beer. Dry chocoalte notes in the aftertaste. Overall: Interesting and fun beer to try. I liked the heavy chocolate notes better in the aroma than the taste. A bit too heavy for my taste. I would have liked it a bit more flowery and crisp (and maybe a bit lighter on the ABV).

Dermi (610) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 4, 2012
Pub, Kuikka. Pours cloudy brown with a decent beige head. Aroma: Semi-roasted malt, berries, earth. Taste: Moderately sweet yet mild due to bitterness and acidic component. Palate: Medium body, sensible carbonation. Pretty good and twisted.

Kavu (1966) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 4, 2012
Pours very dark brown with a low head. Aroma is slightly sour roasted malts. Flavor is also slightly sour roasted malts with some hops in the finish. Very interesting and also good.
