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.

Vignale (2414) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAY 20, 2015
Flaska från Mikkeller&Friends. Drucken i solen vid en av Söerne i Köpenhamn. Och det kanske är problemet, fel tillfälle för detta öl och min förväntan på det. Hade förväntat mig en modern kanske humlad saison och inte läst så noga på ABV. Så miss där. Det här är sött, stark, fruktigt/estrigt, väldigt kolsyrat och med en beska som jag är jordig och lite väl skarp. När den klingat ut lyfter fruktighet fint men tar annars över för mycket. Annars en klassisk stor söt saison som jag tror hade blivit bättre av att stå några år så att smakerna fick rundas av och växa ihop.

FatPhil (10291) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 12, 2015
Tap (TCBW15)
Simple watery saison aroma. Dirty taste, yeasty. Crisp palate, but the yeast makes it sticky and tongue-scrapey. Finish earthy and yeasty. Another victim of the trend to just chuck in a saison yeast, which as saison is fashionable currently therefore must be good. Yeah, right.

NosirIwont (2102) - Aalborg Vestby, DENMARK - MAY 10, 2015
Bottle. 7.2%. Best before 11.15. 10 cl. sample. Pours a clear yellow with a white head. Grassy hop aroma with a fruity note. Tart note deep down, poking out as it warms. Swimming pool (!) overtone. A bit tart and fat flavour, with some hops and a grainy note. Grainy finish as well. Overall too grainy and not enough hops. 01.05.15.
