COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Interpretation of French/Belgian Biere de Noel (Christmas beer). Blue Mountain Barrel House’s Blitzen is a dark ruby-hued ale fermented with Rochefort Trappist brewery’s signature yeast. Light notes of dark stone fruits blend with the subtle spiciness of the yeast to produce a well-balanced 7% alcohol delicious seasonal beer.

On tap at Ridgewood (Raleigh). Pours a clear dark copper with a finger of head. Combination of fruit and spice aroma, with spice (nutmeg/cinnamon) taking over upon tasting it. Nice winter/seasonal ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
