The smell is Christmas cakes, bread and cinnamon. The foam is high, impressive and enduring. The taste is heavy and rich and has again gingerbread, cinnamon, clove, banana and a delicate touch of orange peel. A really tasty and lovely Christmas beer, which I can only recommend that you taste. Hop bitterness has a slightly sour end.

Bottled as Jefferson Merry Christmas Beer.
Hazy brown. Malty nose, some overtones of Belgian yeast. A nice Belgian style ale. Nothing seasonal about this, and it lacks soemthing extra to lift it.
