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.

Keg @Cimmeria, Oviedo. 29-07-2014.
In short: a malty saison.
Pours hazy amber with frothy off white head. Malty, funlky, spicy aromas. Medium body, average to high carbonation, crispy texture. Taste is subtle sour, alcohol noticed, malty, sweet aftertaste. Not so well balanced.

MikeKeller (834) - Kemi, FINLAND - APR 9, 2014
Draught @ Ale&Hop, Barcelona. A bit hazy amber beer with a disappearing head. Aroma is a bit sour, sweet malts, belgian yeast. Flavour pretty much the same. Very much like Belgian ale and not so much like saison.

We don’t need know power just brew baby brew. An experimental saison that has a story to match it’s intriguing characteristics. A saison with a multitude of different yeast flavors. Great color and exceedingly drinkable. Like most of the Edge brews this beer hides it’s ABV.

Impresionante cerveza. Su aroma intenso, especiado y de recuerdo belga contrastó mucho y muy bien con las inglesas que estuve tomando esa misma noche. El color es naranja oscuro y radiante, con espuma cremosa y muy apetecible. Más bien densa. Muy recomendable.

GBZ59 (1116) - BARCELONA (Catalonia), SPAIN - MAR 15, 2014
Grifo. Servida en Copa de Cata en el Homo Sibaris (Barcelona). Color latón pálido y apariencia nublada. Espuma blanca que crea una capa tupida con bastante buena retención. Aromas afrutados con intensa pimienta y trazos de queso azul dulce/salado. Entrada reseca y sabor malteado con recuerdos de galleta y gentil amargor floral. Cuerpo medio y carbonatación moderada. Paladar picante y textura oleosa. Sabores complejos y bien equilibrados. Final amargo prolongado con toques de fruta dulce. Retrogusto reseco y refrescante. Una elaboración sabrosa. On-tap. Tasting glass @ Homo Sibaris (Barcelona). Pale brass color, cloudy appearance. White froth creates close crown showing fairly good retention. Intense spicy & fruity aromas, hints of sweet/salty blue cheese. Dried upfront, malty flavor –biscuit memories- & gentle floral bitterness. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Spicy palate & oily texture. Well balanced & complex flavors. Long bitter finish touched by sweet fruity notes. Dried & refreshing aftertaste. Flavorful.

tiong (3699) - Espoo, FINLAND - MAR 14, 2014
Draught @ Edge Brewing Tap Takeover @ La Mes Petita, Barcelona

Pours dark orange with a smooth white head. Aroma of spices, wet hops, some earthy notes, caramely malts and citrus. Taste is sweetish, smooth, hoppy and caramely with some spiciness. Finish is smooth and wet hoppy with some floral and spicy notes. Okay, quite hoppy saison. Not very tart or earthy, but still easily recognizable as a saison.
