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

Tejas (851) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 13, 2014
Bottle. Looks great. Almost zero aroma. Insanely dry which is good for a saison. Lacks spice for a saison. Tastes ok. Wish it had more flavor. Probably won't buy again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

750ml bottle from Vinmonopolet Asker. Four finger off-white head which fades quickly, but with excellent frothy lacing. Hazy golden body. Aroma of sweet malt, some light grassy hoppiness, leather and herbs. Slightly bitter on the tongue, bitter aftertaste. Well balanced.

BeErikS (4) - TAIWAN - APR 7, 2014 does not count
Well hopped, crisp saison, reminiscent of an IPA but shorter on the bitterness. Drawback is the discernible alcohol nose. A very solid and well balanced winter offering from Toøl.

IPAgutten79 (359) - Skui, NORWAY - MAR 29, 2014
Gulaktig med medium høyde. God aroma av gjær, gress, sitron, malt og humle. Smaken er veldig frisk, her er gjær, sitron og malt. Noe surhet, men ikke overveldende. Frisk, og umulig å merke at den er på 8%. Godt balansert.

On tap at Cafe Sara. Hazy straw colour, light tan foam. Aroma of honey, hops and green apple with some skunk. Girlfriend said it smells slightly like Venice. Taste is bitter, dry and somewhat fruity with a zesty aftertaste.
