COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: “…rør blot ikke ved min gamle jul..” sådan hører vi hvert år, Bo Bendixen synge fra “Sikke en voldsom trængsel og alarm” Sådan er det også med juleøllet. Det har sin plads blandt mange andre tradtioner. Juleøllet har alle dage været kraftigere øl end hverdagsøllet – Hornbeer Juleøl er ingen undtagelse. Den holder sine 7½ pct. Vi har i år valgt at brygge vores juleøl efter belgisk forbillede. Der er anvendt gær fra belgisk trappistøl, og der er krydret ganske lidt. Der er smag er frugter, karamel og jul. Vi tillader os at citere Carsten Bertelsen fra bogen 24 juleøl. “Juleøl skal tages alvorligt, ellers ka’ det være det samme. For så kan vi lige så godt drikke den øl, som vi plejer i hverdagen. Vore forfædre indviede det godt indbryggede og krydrede juleøl med højtid, så derfor må velsmag og godt håndværk – i det mindste – være vor tids offer til guderne” Vi er helt enige i synspunktet: stå vagt om en god tradition, nemlig den gode juleøl.

The aroma is very Belgian. A Blue Chimay is not far away here. The flavour is also very similar. Ripe plums, candy sugar and just enough sourness to hold the sweetness in check. The label says spices, but it does not specify. I feel cinnamon, nutmeg and sage, but I could be mistaken. Robust enough to cope with a Danish pork roast with red cabbage

Maria (9963) - Thisted, DENMARK - JAN 1, 2011
It’s unclear, red-brown with a small, creamy head. The aroma has notes of caramel, yeast, candy sugar and anise. The flavour is sweet with notes of caramel, yeast, coriander, candy-sugar, hints of chocolate´and the finish is both lightly dry and slightly bitter – it’s a bit monotonous.

MiP (13046) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - DEC 21, 2010
Bottle, 7.5%. Sweet roasted aroma, hint of cough syrup. Cloudy, muddy red brown colour. Fruity flavour, quite spicy. Some cinnamon, hint of mild bread, very weak aniseed. A mixture of many different spices, I think. Late cherry sourness to balance. I wonder if there is fruit in there at all.
