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.

75 cl bottle batch 260. Pours with a huge white creamy head. Golden yellow colour. Aroma is fruity, wheat and sweet with notes ofhops.

UPDATED: JUL 19, 2007 Bottle, from Kolding Vinhandel. Muddy pale yellow with a big bubbly white head. Lots of lacing. Aroma has a weak chamomille, light fruityness (oranges) and generally sweet. Flavour is sweet, lightly vinious, loads of chamomille and other sweet spices. Complex and with a light carbonation. lending it a creamy feel.

Boutip (6498) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 17, 2008
Bottle courtesy of Thewolf: Poured a dirty beige color ale with a large pure white foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of spices and fruity ester is quite interesting with some light funky notes. Taste is also dominated by some light spices with some great fruity esters with a great malt backbone which may includes wheat. Full body with limited filtration and great carbonation with no apparent alcohol. Overall, I thought it was a refreshing example of the style with some good complexity to offer as well.

ToolHead (266) - København, DENMARK - MAR 10, 2007
75 cl (plastic-) corked & wired bottle. Served in wine glass. Deep, hazy gold w/ mammoth, mostly lasting head that leaves good lacing. Powerfully, invitingly spicy, yeasty and flowery aroma w/ notes of honey and nice hop presence. The flavor is yeasty and pleasantly, softly spicy, well-hopped and honeyish without being even slightly sweetish. Complex and harmonic. The finish is dry as a bone, spicy and lasting. Great drinkability. Full and pleasantly fluffy mouthfeel. A hugely enjoyable and well-crafted saison that I’d gladly come back to.

Skinnyviking (9674) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 16, 2007
Bottle. High white and cremay lasting head. Hazy orange body. Hoppy mild oranges aroma, unfortunately also with - goodness knows what - in my point of view - muddy waters, sewers like flavor. Favor though crosåu cleaan hops nuts oranges. What the brewer (Christian?) calls chamomille tea flavors are hardley noticiable because of the (thajnk God) high hops contents. Interesting though. They’ve dpme ot agaom. Low carbpmatopm (mot needed here). Long bitter atftertaste (thank u).

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.

bu11zeye (13139) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - OCT 11, 2007
(750ml Bottle) Pours a cloudy golden body with a medium white head. Aroma of florals, vanilla candle burning, and light citrus. Flavor of chamomile, light citrus, orange peel, and herbs.

sayravai (4710) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 13, 2007
(Bottled, 0.75l, 2005) Very hazy amber with a medium head. Aromatic-hoppy, grainy-fruity aroma with berryish, sweetish Belgian feel. Quite nice flavor with saisony earthy sourness combined with pale ale -style aromatic hoppiness. Medium-bodied, reasonably refreshing palate with soft carbonation. A pleasant and enjoyable pale ale -influenced saison.

Christian (13807) - Odense, DENMARK - JUL 1, 2007
Unclear orange with a disappearing white head. Malty aroma with leather and flowers. Full fruity flavour with a spicy pepper dry finish. I love that the chamomile is kept in the background as one nuance among many others.
