COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Every year we offer a special, unique brew to celebrate the Holidays. They have run the gamut of colors and flavors, sometimes with spices, fruits or other exotic ingredients to add extra dimensions. This years offering is light in color but has a full body and flavor. We used Pale malt, rye and malted wheat for the base grains. These lend both pleasant flavors and a smooth mouthfeel to the beer. Locally produced sunflower honey adds flavor and aroma and it is complemented by a subtle addition of chamomile. Hops are not the focus of this beer but gentle additions of Mt. Hood and Horizon hops add balance to the sweetness of the malts and honey. Served unfiltered.

UPDATED: JAN 12, 2006 On Tap: Another great Free State beer! Maybe I am biased, but man this stuff is good! A nice hoppy flavor with some malts, spices, citrus/fruits, flavors. Had a very nice mouthfeel that wasn;;t too stiff.carbonated nor was it weak by any means. Great beer!
