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

Frisch vom Hahn im Kaschk getrunken. Trübes Gelb im Glas. Der Schaum ist schnell weg. In der Nase sehr zurückhaltend. Körper ist sehr dominant und überdeckt erhoffte Spritzigkeit.

Barea (66) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JUL 2, 2017
Bottle from pivny raj. Aroma of tropical fruit, banana, yeast. Golden colour, small white head, pretty carbonated with light body. Taste of sweet dry fruit, orange peel, alcohol in the background, earthy bitterness, creamy beer with Brett tones. Unorthodox saison , really enjoyed this one, can’t wait for next Xmas saison edition.

sharkydodson (1704) - St. Petersburg, RUSSIA - JUN 30, 2017
the aroma is fruity and herbal with hints of farm, hay, sweet citrus and yeast... the taste is fruity and rather spicy with notes of orange, candy, yeast, lemon peel and some grasses... sweet, bitter and dry aftertaste...

Poncjusz (263) - POLAND - JUN 21, 2017
Piana wysoka, sredniej struktury ale sztywna i trwała. Kolor zloty, lekko opalizujący. Zapach slodowy, kwasu, delikatne owocowe estry, w tle chlebowyzapach. Aromat przyjemny ale prosty. W smaku lekko cierpki, przyprawowy, ale nie w stronę pieprzu, posmak kandyzowany. Przyjemna konstrukcja smaku, nieco w strone slodową ale finisz wytrawny. Wyczuwalny alkohol choc nie od razu. Choc brakuje wyrazistości i zawiera az 8% bardzo pijalne. Polecam

Drank with Rik 23-05-17 while watching Brooklyn Nine Nine. Slight triple taste. Bit metally. Not really fresh nor hoppy. Nothing special.
