The Yule Goat is one of the oldest Northern European Yule and Christmas symbols and traditions. It is also associated with the custom of wassailing, sometimes referred to as "going Yule Goat". This brown ale is delicately spiced with mace and allspice and fermented with a Belgian yeast strain. A perfect beer for going Yule Goat!

Tap @ HAF 2013... Poured brown with a bubbly, tan head. Nose had barrel and funk. Strong whiskey notes with drying brett and some spirit alcohol and charred tones towards the finish along with yeast and esters. Brett and whiskey barrel characters stand out here. Not very sour.

Very odd beer on tap at the Holiday Ale Festival 2013, PDX. Pours a light brown color with a darker brown head. A sour, spicy nose with some sweet fruitcake. The flavor is also super spicy and sour elements, sour berries, some currant, dusty yeast, brown malt. Sweet all-through but elements of sourness. Good.

On draught at Pdx holiday ale fest - pours dark cloudy amber with thick tan head. Nose of whiskey, wood, booze. Taste is warming barrel aged whiskey with sweet malt combined with fruitcake spices. Perfect for the Holidays! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
