VANDEKELDER SAISON NOIRE  t_u  t_u  t_u  t_u

Dark Saison from Vandekelder, with an ABV of 8.9%. New brew for me.

Pours a very deep dark burgundy with a creamy frothy head. Great lacing.

Aromas of dark chocolate, mocha, coffee, caramel, malts and herbals.

It's medium bodied, and nicely carbonated. Rich, creamy, and smooth;
very dry and bitter, complex, balanced and with good depth of flavour.
The initial dark chocolate, caramel, coffee, mocha, cocoa powder,
baking powder, praline and charcoal move from centre stage to back stage
as the saison flavours take over with more florals, hops, spices and
making a much lighter softer taste and texture. Lovely brew!
