COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A dark, malty celebration ale with layered flavors and beautifully balanced hopping. Jubelale pours deep garnet in color, medium bodied, with notes of chicory, earth, spice and fruit. To beer lovers, it’s like Yule fire and family.

3fourths (7855) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 10, 2003
UPDATED: JUN 21, 2013 Cask: Wonderful fruit and floral aroma, containing strawberries, cherries and spices. Taste is more of burnt wood with dark fruit. Very robust, with a syrupy palate and a nice burnt finish. 9/4/8/4/17 Bottle: Medium brown/orange head, dark amber color. Smells fruity, almost like Life-Savers. Tastes like peach, very light on the tongue. Seems like a very nice holiday beer. 7/4/7/3/14

aracauna (3030) - Georgia, USA - JAN 9, 2003
Nice cherry-red glow with light tan head that is nice but fades incompletely. The aroma is oranges, mild winter spiciness (whether it’s added or not) and a light, sweet malt. The first sip is a shock at the amount of hop bitterness. The hops seem to float seperately from the rest of the beer which is a warm soft sweet maltiness. The hop bitterness fades as you get used to it but it still seems out of place and unbalances the beer.

This is a descent brew, in the same malty tradition of their other brews.

Crit (3306) - Surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 3, 2003
UPDATED: DEC 4, 2005 Too many different years with too many different tastes to add comments. This is different each year, I confirmed that with the brewery, should be able to rate each year. just like Anchor

Darker brown color. Sweet spicy nutmeg(?) then a hoppiness kicks in.

Drew (2411) - Kent, Ohio, USA - DEC 26, 2002
Warming. Front is very sweet - I was worried, but middle and finish are roasty, hoppy and dry. This is my kind of winter warmer

Glowing ruby color. Huge maltiness in the flavor...some pine tones, floral hops, sweet fruit. Nice warming brew for the holidays.

SpaceMonkey (182) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 20, 2002
Smells like a freshly poured glass of orange juice, yet in the background you get whiffs of a nutty malt overtone. The top is a creamy beige micro bubble soup the thins ever so slowly. The body is a lovely glowing dark reddish magenta. Subtle hints of cherry and bittersweet chocolate starts it off, then blends into an understated orange and flowerery hop bitter in the end. This an interesting tasting experience and shows quite a bit of skill in blending together several different subtle spices and flavors.

Light on the malt with a slight bitter aftertaste. Brew had a decent head and light evergreen aroma.
