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

Poncjusz (170) - 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

Maarten1993 (1223) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - MAY 23, 2017
Drank with Rik 23-05-17 while watching Brooklyn Nine Nine. Slight triple taste. Bit metally. Not really fresh nor hoppy. Nothing special.

Tap at Erzbierschof. Hazy golden color with small white head. Aroma is dough, spicy, lemony. Taste is apples, pears, pineapple, dough, some spicy yeasts, dry spicy finish. Medium soft carbonation, oily mouthfeel. Fun Saison, but not excellent.

VDuquerroux (1639) - Airvault, Haut-Poitou, FRANCE - APR 24, 2017
Bottle, 33cL. Home. An orange-yellow light opaque beer ; few bubbles ; big white foamy head ; medium retention ; good lacing. Fruits (citrus, tropical fruits), resin, light herb. Medium dry bitter refreshing, light to medium sweet, round. Good body, oily texture, average to soft carbonation, fruity dry bitter lasting finish. Overall, very good (15 =17-2) ! Honestly, this tasting was great ! But this beer was more a imperial IPA than a saison ; I didn’t get the Brett aromatic character at all.

ghostbeer (204) - Nebraska, USA - APR 22, 2017
Some earthy tang, but sort of all up front with a weak finish. Probably good with food, but still left me wanting more from it and not more of it.

3.8
nosajhongkong (77) - North Point, HONG KONG - APR 10, 2017
0, 33L bottle bought at HK Brewcraft. Appearance: Pours a hazy golden colour very attractive colour with frothy and large white head. Aroma: Quite hoppy, mainly ripe fruit, lemon, pineapple. Alongside some hay, spice and fresh grass. Some yeast at the end. Taste: Moderate sweetness at first. Bitterness appears towards at the end. Mainly citrus, lemon, grassy, spice and malt. Have some very mild tartness Palate: Lingering bitterness of grass and hay. Herbal yet with hoppy and dry finish. High carbonation with smooth texture. Medium body. Overall: Very fragrant and distinctive arome, though I still prefer a traditional saison. Maybe this is a bit too hoppy and bitterness is slightly strong for a saison (more like Pale Ale-ish bitterness in my opinion). Nice effort though.
