COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Lad os bare sige det kortfattet: Vi er pænt trætte af oversøde, dybt maltede jule og vinter øl. Helt ærligt… Når man spiser sin Gås eller And med tyk mormor-sovs så har man ikke brug for et ekstra skud flydende insulin. Nææææ. Du har brug for noget der kan lette din middag, tage din mave ud af den røde zone og rense din hals. Og det er der at Snowball Saison kommer ind i billedet. Det er en SUPER perlende, ren og tør Saison som er blevet eftergæret med mælkesyrebakterier og tørhumlet igen og igen for at give øllen dets lækre krop og bløde tørre eftersmag. Nyd den kolde vinter med en vasker af rette kaliber!

Ingredienser: Vand, Maltbyg, flækket havre, Lys kandis, Humle (Amarillo, Tettnanger, Simcoe, Hallertauer), Gær og brettanomyces.

English: Enough heavy dark obnoxious sweet super malty x-mas and winter beers. When you eat heavy duck with fat gravy, the last thing you want is another heavy sweet malt liqour!
NO! you want something that can help you digest the dinner, ease you stommach and cleance your throat. And that is exactly what Snowball Saison will do. It is a SUPER sparkling crisp and dry Saison that has been refermented with milk acid bacterias and dry hopped over and over to give the beer a crisp and smooth tart finish (not to mention.... there is a lot of hops of course...)
Have a nice winter!

Ingredients: Water, Malt, Flaked Oats , Light Candy, HOPPPPPSSSSS (Amarillo, Tettnanger, Simcoe, Hallertauer) Yeast and brettanomyces

hawthorne00 (3361) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JAN 24, 2016
Bottle. Pale gold with a modest white head. Gentle yet classy aroma of oranges, light puddingy dough, under-ripe nectarines. Medium bodied, carbonation on the low side for a saison. Decent balance between sweet, tart and bitter, with fruit flavours making up most of all three. Oranges, nectarines, some light dough, gentle spices. Dry and quite bitter at the end with a suggestion of funk right at the end. (Almost) justifies its alcoholic strength with depth rather than punch.

MonsterMagnet (1047) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 22, 2016
Bottle from my secret santa Saeglopur, many thanks! Pours hazy yellow with a white head. Lime zest, peach, green leaves, spices, light floral and a tiny bit of funk. Great balance of sweet and bitter, lovely creamy texture, medium body and soft carbonation. Wonderful lingering fruity and spicy bitter finish, slightly tart, dry with hints of green tea. Not very bretty, but a lovely fruity saison with great texture and finish. Edit: when warming up the brett becomes more potent in the finish and it seems just right.

Taste of citrus, grapefruit, saison yeast, pepper, light grains and acidic funk. Medium mouthfeel and low carbonation with medium-high bitterness and some nice acidity. Aftertaste is dry and bitter with more funky acidity.

lilsummerlil (9) - THAILAND - JAN 16, 2016 does not count
The label is lovely and it’s a good choice for refreshing beer. I had it n the bottle which I didn’t regret to take it across the world from Copenhagen to Thailand.

procraste (471) - FRANCE - JAN 12, 2016
épicée, agréable au palais. Pointe funky discrète mais qui soutient un côté gentiment accueillant ... Très agréable à chaque gorgée / Sans lassitude ... Pourtant, ce n’est pas d’une complexité inouïe. Une certaine justesse.

Turtles (1650) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JAN 8, 2016
750 ml bottle from Systembolaget. Hazy golden with a big white head with rich sticky lacing. Hoppy, yeast and caramel in the aroma, pineapple and peach are prominent fruits. Smooth and well rounded mouthfeel. The taste got sweet caramel, peach, pineapple and bread, with tangy citrus zest and yeast, more fresh hoppy than tart.
