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

nilsas (1637) - Bryne, NORWAY - MAR 17, 2014
Syrlig duft av høy og sitron. Klar gyllen farge. Hvitt dekkende skum. En anelse sitron syrlighet sammen med mild smak av høy.

Simonsen (702) - NORWAY - MAR 16, 2014
Flaske fra vinmonopolet. Gylden, lett sløret farge, lite/medium karbonert. Stor varig hvit skumtopp. Smaker gjær, kandis, brent sukker, sitrus, humle,frukt, furunål. Svært fornøyelig . Smakfull og frisk på en gang

750 ml bottle shared w/ Mike

Pours a deep rich golden with a highlighter-yellow tinted head. Nice aroma of sugared citrus, little funk or barnyard. Peaches and pineapple in the flavor, alcohol very prominent in flavor and mouthfeel alike. Sticky, on the sweet side despite a substantive hop bite that brings an Amarillo aroma but with a flavor that nods to the Hallertau. Brett is basically nowhere to be found. While I don’t really know what to call this, I guess I wouldn’t have thought saison. There’s not that much funk or farmhouse here at all. A bit of a pricey disappointment at $15.99.

On tap at Nydalen B&S
Light orange hazy, white head. Smell of yeast esters, light malts, apple and some hops. Light sweet, quite fruity, more apple, some acids, a stenk of alcohol, warming malts, some xitrus, quite dry not at all funky. Moderate to medium bitter finish. Not all that exciting really. The brett and hops does not shine as i expect

Unde (405) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 10, 2014
Golden yellow beer with nice thick head on top and beautiful lacing. Aroma has spices, anise, fruits and hints of vanilla. Taste is fruity, yeasty, spicy, and some vanilla and drying after taste. Full body with crispy carbonation and slightly high alcohol content. A more full version of saison for cold winter days.

RexTalionis (2599) - FINLAND - MAR 8, 2014
Bottle 75 cl, BBE 08/2014. Pours golden in color with a massive off-white head. Exotic fruits, faint perfume, summer meadow and lemony notes in aroma. Light funkiness and sweet fruityness too. The aroma is so nice and soft, but yet it feels quite crisp. Hints of bitter grassyness and slightly funky notes in taste at first, also some sweet fruity and spicy notes are present. Refreshing for sure. Not far from a (D)IPA actually. Orange peel and piney notes in aftertaste. Tasty nonetheless, even if the sweetness could have been a bit on a lower level and at the same time a bit more bitterness would had made this an excellent brew. However, this one groves on one and gets more complex and better towards the finish.

jcr (2221) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - FEB 28, 2014
750 ml. Deep golden/orange body. Large white, rocky head. Aroma of citrus, spice, toasted malt, earthiness, orange. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Dry finish. Spicy and slightly funky (basement) tastes with orange and peach notes.

Torrefacto (617) - Madrid, SPAIN - FEB 22, 2014
Color anatanjado pálido. Aromas de hierba y resina con toque cítrico. En boca es ligera con un toque herbal al inicio que acaba en n amargor algo cítrico pero sobre todo seco y resinoso. Buena, pero no parece una saison

Very easy drinking Saison, champagne like head. White foam, light golden color. Taste is clean and crisp. You get some hops and brett.
