Eiker Øl Fabrikk – Vinter Saison

‘”Oi! Little Brother!”

This was an unexpected call to attention on the Saturday morning of Bergen Øl Festival as I was making my way across the festival grounds.  The caller was Jonas from everybody’s  favourite organic brewery from Drammen. Again, a collaboration borne from Bergen, we got very chummy with the great guys from Eiker over the course of the weekend that was the BØF.  Being huge fans of their “Eiker Hvete, Belgisk Wit”, well all of their beers as a matter of fact, we had decided upon something appropriate for the upcoming season.  A plum Saison that is as dark as 17:00 in January is the result.  With a rich farmhouse body, this has a big dark fruit nose to begin and leaves you with a well rounded palette that keeps you warm no matter what is happing outside in the depths of winter.
