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.

Lilja (1391) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUL 2, 2012
En trevlig överraskning, en svart saison. Mycket fruktig, syrlig och söt, välbalanserad och lite oljig i konsistensen.

Miksu (4830) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - JUL 1, 2012
Draught at Harry’s, Jyväskylä. Dark reddish brown color. Aromas of clove and raisins. Taste of clove, pepper, raisins, bitter chocolate and herbal bitterness. Fairly full body. Dark malts and spiciness does not mix well here, or perhaps this needs aging for flavors to integrate better.

gnoff (7453) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - JUN 23, 2012
33 cl bottle, e-order from Systembolaget. BB 130117, sampled on June 23, 2012
Clear dark brown color, big lasting tan head. Spicy, phenolic, estery, fruity, a bit of smoke and metallic, some barnyard and lactic scent, as well as a hint of roasted malt. Nothing off about it, rather fresh and interesting. Quite subtle and intriguing, well balanced smell. Malty, some roasted notes, acdity at a reasonable level, grainy, some bitterness, fruity, fruit peels, raw grains, alcohol taste. Warming alcohol. Grainy aftertaste. Medium to smooth mouthfeel, medium bitterness that is to the slight bit harsh side, might be the alcohol bite on the tongue. Minerals and some yeast.
Perhaps nothing I’d sit with several bottles on a single night, but as per one bottle it’s nice and sippable, a well made beer, good balance. Perhaps for my personal taste the alcohol could be lower.
