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

SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - DEC 24, 2011
75cl bottle. Sparkling golden with a lasting white head. Spicy and fruity hop aroma with a nice, fruity yeast profile to hold it up. Hoppy and fruity in the mouth with a dry finish and light heft. Lingering orange hop bitterness. Quite dry. Nice hoppy and dry saison. No overt brett character but that might come in time. Just about when the hops are dying...

puren (595) - Starogard Gd., POLAND - JUN 26, 2016
Prezentacja:
zmętnione, pomarańczowe, bardzo obfita, powoli osiadająca do grubej pierzyny, ładnie koronkująca piana;
Aromat:
delikatny, pomarańcza, chleb, słodkie przyprawy, zboże, alkohol;
Odczucie:
bardzo niskie ciało, średnio nasycone, goryczkowy finisz, lekkie pieczenie w przełyku;
Smak:
pomarańcza, brzoskwinia, alkohol, chlebowy-ziołowa goryczka;
Ogólnie:
orzeźwiające, zdradliwie pijalne (8%), ale zbyt delikatne, zwłaszcza w aromacie; ogólnie - nic wielkiego.

eljebi (62) - oviedo, SPAIN - JUN 21, 2016
Muy interesante la combinación de las notas ácidas (funky que dicen por ahí) de la saison clásica y ese punto especiado, con el dulzor del alcohol y ese ligero amargor herbal. Muy rica

thirstyrabbit (1692) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 23, 2016
Small bottle. Bright golden body with a medium head. Dry bretty aroma with some orange juice. Taste is dry and mildly bretty with some sweet zesty orange peel. Crisp carbonation, dry finish. The hops are not very aromatic anymore because my bottle is nearing the BB date in three weeks. However, it seems that the brett character has really taken off during the time the beer stayed in the bottle so I like it.

angelkostvo (1094) - CZECH REPUBLIC - MAY 8, 2016
Light orange, big white head. Aroma of funk, lemon, elderflower, yogurt and grass. Taste is light bitter, light tart, dry finish with flavor of tea leaves and rotten nuts. Light body, slick texture, fizzy carbonation.

metalspice (571) - Jevnaker, NORWAY - MAY 6, 2016
Lys gyllenbrun med høyt skum. Krydret og fruktig duft med litt gårdstoner ved siden. Krydret smak med noe besk frukt. Sterk bitterhet i avslutningen. Lett oljete munnfølelse.

alkolas510 (1141) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAY 4, 2016
Pilsnerfärgad grumlig med stort vit skum. Doftar och smakar citrus och lite fruktigt från jästen. Lite för mycket beska. Annars bra!
