COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The very first beer we ever brewed, in winter, before we had full power supply, hence the name. It’s a Belgian classic fermented at high temperatures to bring out all those great saison yeast characteristics. Big aromas of fruit and spice carry through into the flavor. The result is hearty and complex, yet wholly drinkable.

Scrumpy369 (398) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUL 26, 2016
On tap at hopaholic. Clear orange colour, almost no head. Nose is grainy. Taste is low sourness. Stick mouthfeel. Not very outsanding.

Palme (3943) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 26, 2016
0.33l bottle @ Una. The most over carbonated beer I’ve ever seen this. A few drops in the glass equals a massive foamy overflow of near everlasting off-white foam. Just ridiculous without being funny. Really wanted a beer now, but I won’t be able to drink this is quite some time. What a shame. 4 minutes later... It has a body also. Blurry and coppery orange in color. Smells like fluffy foam with yeast, grapes and alcohol. Kinda sweetish also. Like the aroma. It’s massively over carbonated and it doesn’t really taste any good either. Old and earthy lots of dust and soil. Really sweet in the taste. Sweet and yeasty alcohol. Tried swirling the bottle a little and the foam gushed, almost hitting the roof top. Crazy over carbonated. Too bad. 13.11.2015

Sigmund (6485) - Tau, NORWAY - JUL 24, 2016
RBESG 2016 in Barcelona. On tap at the brewery. Amber colour. First reaction: What the hell is this? Sourish, malty, medium hoppy. Hardly a saison in my book, anyway. Not great.

martjoobolut (2800) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 17, 2016
BB 11.06.17, ABV 7.4% (from UJH?). Pours amber with off-white head. The head stays for some time. Aroma is rotten fruits, sourness, diacetyl, floral notes. Flavor is sour, sweet and bitter, fruits, more diacetyl, grass. Finish is bitter, some caramel, diacetyl and a ton of alcohol. Overall: this is really bad (maybe a bad batch/bottle?!). I would prefer average macro lager instead.

Maakun (3403) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUL 8, 2016
Tap at the brewery. Caramel, spicy Belgian yeast, dried peach, fresh cut wood, resin, lots of green leaves, cardboard, unripe berries. Light sweet and sour and medium bitter. Medium bodied. Again not a typical saison, but interesting nonetheless.

Rask0lnikov (615) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 6, 2016
330ml bottle at Koht. Amber colour. Thin white line of froth around the glass. Caramel, hints of currants or raw gooseberries, flowery notes in the aroma. Caramel, some sweetness at first. Brown sugar, flowery notes in the middle. Slightly sour finish. Hints of berries. Slight alcochol and hints of spices in the aftertaste. Rather medium bodied, medium carbonated, averagely balanced saison. Does not have that crispiness and refreshing touch. But there are some interesting sides as well.

lebermilz (209) - GERMANY - APR 10, 2016
Hazy orange, foamy white head. IPA nose, pineapple, passion fruit. Sweet, round, bitterness in the aftertaste. The sweetness and colour resemble a saison, the rest is IPA. Still tastes good.

TheJester (2443) - Cavan Monaghan, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 23, 2016
330 mL bottle at St Veronus. Dark, rusty orange with a small tan head. The aroma is very fruity, some sour, some sweet. Some earthy hops and bitterness at the end. Interesting.

h0ppingmad (83) - Barcelona, SPAIN - MAR 12, 2016
33cl bottle, pours a slight hazy amber/golden with frothy white head. Aroma is fruity, slightly sour, and yeast, typical of a saison. Taste is an intricate balance balance of sweet and tart, with some spice and pepper notes present. Medium body, medium to high carbonation, with a dry bitter finish.
