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

Clarkdvm (396) - Florida, USA - DEC 8, 2015
Bottle in Fl. Aroma only good part. Looks like domestic lager work extra head. Can’t understand the rating at all. Very hoppy. Not what I consider a saison. Name is kinda right- tastes like a melted dirty snowball mixed with funky hops

Saeglopur (1598) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - NOV 10, 2015
330 ml bottle from Ammersin Centerstore.
Amber, hazy body, with a big, fluffy, lacing, white head.
Aroma of Brett, lemongrass, some barnyard, citrus, grass, some pine, spices, some cheese, candy.
Tastes of yeast, lemongrass, lemon zest, citrus, some passion fruit, some sweet beerries, some spices, candy, some pine, some honey.
Medium, a bit oily mouthfeel, with an average carbonation.
Finishes dry, bitter, piney, zesty, yeasty, a bit malty.

Very nice example of a hoppy Brett Saison. The nose is really lovely and complex, taste is more straight dry and hoppy. The finish releases a lot of enjoyable piney hop notes. Overall not the very best style example I’ve had, but really tasty and fresh nonetheless.

Diabobale (436) - Vallata, SUD ITALIA, ITALY - OCT 29, 2015
UPDATED: OCT 31, 2015 Una saison dal colore dorato carico, leggermente velato, con un abbondante cappello di schiuma bianca, grossolana e dalla lunga persistenza. Al naso note fruttate (banana), lattiche e liquorose su una consistente base di cereale. Impercettibili note erbacee di sottofondo. Al palato entra ottimamente carbonata, con un corpo scarico per una buona facilità di bevuta. In bocca tanto amaro fin da subito. La parte maltata (crosta di pane) è ben in evidenza. L?alcol pure si avverte bene. Finale molto secco, con le note agrumate (pompelmo) ed erbacee che si prolungano abbastanza nel retrogusto. Se non fosse per l?odore, sarebbe un?ottima double ipa.

Pours a golden cloudy yellow with fizzy head. Aromas of fruity, funky, horsey goodness. Flavors of barnyard, grass, yeast, and citrus hops.
