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

Excellent beer. Crisp, light, hoppy, and refreshing. Pours with a nice fine bubbly head. Has a very fine champagne like carbonation. Nice orange color. This beer seems like it would pair nice with light fruit, mild cheese or grilled fish. ---Mr. Dizzle

valquere78 (31) - calais, FRANCE - JUN 11, 2015
Pours a deep gold with full retentive head. Aromas of toffee, light grapefruit, peaches, and a very light funk. Initial flavors of somewhat tart fruit candy followed by toffee then grass, citrus and grain. Light lingering bitterness.

pint 9 shared poured a clear highly carbonated orange color with white head. the aroma was nicely hopped which I thought a little strange for a saison. mild saison nose as well..the flavor was more of the same nice dry hop finish to this one. light and refreshing.

DrunkSanta410 (619) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUL 10, 2015
Tap at cottonwood. Bright orange pour, frothy white head. Aroma is light floral and hoppy. A bit of Brett. Taste is orange, citrus, smooth. A bit of a boozy back to it. Smooth. Really clean and fresh.

hoplover66 (58) - Barcelona, SPAIN - JUN 20, 2015
Color naranja, espuma muy abundante y compacta. Aroma de lúpulos, cítrico, herbal. En boca es picante, maltosa y levadura muy presente. El final es moderadamente amargo, muy agradable. Perfecta.

tomer (2163) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - JUN 21, 2015
At a tasting, thanks, medium stable bubbly head, light hazy pale orange color, aroma of paper with light bready malt, a spicey hint and some honey, sweet biscuity malt and honey flavor, coarse but not too strong bitterness, much too sweet. Not good, doesn’t resemble a saison.

750ml bottle @William K Kurvi. Amber colored, thick white head. Spicy, peppery aroma, candy sugar. Flavor has sweetness, white pepper, candy, fruits. Interesting, not very traditional saison though.
