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

tfredvik (1208) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 19, 2014
Hazy amber body with a creamy, off-white head that leaves a good amount of lacing. Strong, complex and interesting aroma: first I get mainly IPA-ish fruity notes with peach in front, then I recognise a firm fruity tartness and apricot kernels. The strong flavours are definably dominated by the sour stuff, lots of tart fruits, lactic notes and stale white wine. Light to moderate sour taste with a light sweetness and bitterness as well. Mid-bodied, moderate carbonation, very dry finish. Maybe more interesting than really good.
[25 cl from tap @ Nydalen Bryggeri og Spiseri, Oslo]

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 (422) - 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.
