COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Editor’s note: Brewed by Ølfabrikken at Het Anker, Mechelen, Belgium. <br /><br /> The heart of this beer is an aromatic yeast from the Ardennes region in Belgium fermented at very high temperature (>30 deg. C). This provides the beer with a range of interesting flavor and aroma components and leaves the beer bone dry as a true Saison should be. Even though the beer gets its inspiration from the Belgian Saison brews, it has its very own Danish character from the use of Chamomile flowers and freshly picked thyme giving the beer a discrete tea-like aroma and a nice fullness. High carbonation and light body makes this brew uniquely refreshing. Ølfabrikken Saison Kamille is of course unfiltered, unpasteurized and refermented in the bottle like all of our beers. Only available in 75 cl corked bottles.

boboski (1095) - Alabama, USA - SEP 26, 2007
Amber body, visible protein in clouds, very cloudy. A thick white head forms and holds steadfast, minimal lacing left behind. The nose is very grassy, with notes of lemon custard, bread and grain, robust chamomile, lesser alternating perfumed scents of lavender and coriander, herbs and various undefined spices. A sensual, feminine and challenging aroma awaits me at each inhalation, with facets fading in and out of regognition as the temperature rises. Mild vanilla and pepper make the scene. Alcohol is very well disguised. Overall, the aroma is pleasant, perfumed, spicy, earthy and very intriguing. Enjoyable dryness in the flavor, as well as mild but substantial bitterness that leans toward the earthy and herbal variety. Less chamomile is noted with each increasing degree. Sweetness is limited in scope and mild overall. Acidity is prevalent but unintrusive, doing its job and little else. Wheat malt is plentiful and while it doesn’t provide any traditional flavors, it does give off an admirable and steady graininess that disperses the flavors across an eager palate. Finishes lightly tart/sour, powdery, very lightly warming, smooth and moderately acidic, mild sweetness drying quickly and leaving the tongue barren and tingling. The mouthfeel is well carbonated, medium bodied, unsticky until the finish. This is a strange one, but I enjoyed it and I really enjoyed the chamomile spicing and earthiness.

CheesedMan (555) - Saint Cloud, Florida, USA - SEP 22, 2007
Pours a hazy warm golden color. Aroma is very floral, for obvious reasons. Hints of vanilla and a touch of sour dough are there as well. The flavor is almost tea like, in an extremely good way.

3.2
Miksu (5053) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - SEP 17, 2007
0.75 l bottle. Hazy straw color with thick head. Herbal, flowery, honeyish and peppery aroma. Sweet honeyish and herbal flavor with some sharp alcohols and some phenolics. Oily palate. Does not seem dry as a true saison.

Ungstrup (38249) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 12, 2007
Bottled. An unclear orange beer with a lazing orange-beige head. The aroma is sweet malty with spicy notes of camomille. The flavor is sweet malty again with spicy notes of camomille, leading to a dry spicy finish.

ryan (3186) - Beltsville, Maryland, USA - AUG 6, 2007
Provided by kmweaver. Opaque pale body with medium off-white head. The aroma is floral, lightly sweet, bread and apricot. The flavor is lightly sweet, bread, herbal, floral, honey, pear and apple. Medium/full body is round with moderate carbonation. Just too heavy for a Saison.

Maria (10211) - Thisted, DENMARK - AUG 3, 2007
It’s completely opaque golden with a huge, creamy head. The aroma is dusty and malty with notes of yeast and chamomile. The flavour has a light sweetness, a little malt, yeast, dust, chamomile and is somewhat dry - but IMO it lacks depth to be the usual standard from Ølfabrikken. 2421

3.5
pilsnerrogge (2987) - Finspång, SWEDEN - JUL 29, 2007
bottle Muddy orange with a large head. Spicy chamomile and thyme aroma. Dry, citric, spicy chamomile flavour with a light touch of smoke and mint. A pleasant saison.

3.1
Marsiblursi (3076) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUL 27, 2007
(Bottle) Pours hazy amber. Flowery, German chamomile aroma with a light underlying spiciness. Flowery flavour with a light spiciness. Light fruity and light tart with a touch of tart berries. Some citric notes both in the aroma and flavour. Rather dry, medium bodied. Some Ølfabrikken house character is notable.
