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.

Pours a soft ruby copper with one finger of tight tan head. Nose is interesting, lots of dark fruit (fig/raisin/prune) and a touch of spice. Gets to be kind of weird, that Belgian yeast + dark grain fiasco comes out. Grainy burnt popcorn. Touch of acidity in the nose, lots more in the flavor. Where did that acidity come from? Dark fruit shows too and all that other jazz. Weird finish, almost sour.
