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

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

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 (2862) - 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.

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 (767) - 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.

Backlog fra Cardinals crazy juleølsmaking. Jeg ticket alle de øllene, men så at de da ikke kom med på Statistikk, så nå blir det sånn ca...

BREWMUSKCLES (2333) - New Jersey, USA - FEB 5, 2014
crisp and sparkling sweet with a nice steely malt character. loaded in hop but muted and not as harsh. nice apple in there and a good slick wheaty yeast that is not grainy. different. bitter in the finish.

a clean, dry saison that’s not overbearing with a yeast-taste. Yes, you do taste the yeast... But not enough to think that you are going to be able to make a few loaves of bread with it. This is a nice closing bee for me before heading home after a long day of staring at code.
