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 at ChrisO Holiday Tasting, London. Pours brown with a big, tan cream head. Brown bread in the nose, some sugars. Medium sweet flavor with ripening fruits and further brown bread malts. Light to medium bodied with average carbonation. Fairly sweet to finish with toasty sugars, bready malts, little else. OK overall.

Cool_Bond (1206) - Kung av Öl @ Facebook, SWEDEN - FEB 22, 2014
The scent is really good. A scent of wild berries and raspberries. Very special taste. Fruity but still a bit heavier. The taste is of coffee, chocolate, berries and with a trailing bitterness that is quite thin. The aftertaste sticks in the upper part of the mouth for a long time. Very special and good beer. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.
