And so the Three Wise Men set out from the East bearing gifts of Gold, Frankincense and Myrrh. Along the Way, they followed a bright light. The Bible neglects to mention if they brought beer or not. Who goes crossing the desert without beer? How smart are we to believe these wise men were? Since Christmas is the season of gift giving more than receiving, please be a giver and share the Wisdom found in each and every bottle of our Gift of the Magi.

Bottle. It’s been a couple weeks now since this showed up at my door. I had pondered holding both bottles for a while but aspidites insisted that I pull one so I could try it fresh and enjoy the dry hopping, he’s never steered me wrong with anything beer related so what could I do? The pour is murky and burnt copper in color with a persistent ivory head. The aroma is primarily malt and yeast with a sort of musty orange note. Bright hop character in the flavor with a nice brettiness not unlike a fresh Orval. I like where this is going... The malt sweetness is very subdued and I refuse to believe the alcohol is 9.5 %, there’s only a touch in there. Everything seems to be balanced in this beer but its seems to be delicately balanced, if that makes any sense. If I were one to believe in tag lines for beer, I’d call this one the chandelier of beers. There’s also slight stone fruit notes. I don’t get the scores on this one; I think it’s awesome! To each their own, I guess. You can’t argue with anyone’s palate.

Vignale (2202) - Malmö, SWEDEN - DEC 18, 2014
Flaska från Galatea drucken med ölföreningen. En söt ganska kryddig Bier de Garde i det starkare spektrat, eller t o m bortom det, av stilen. Söta maltsmaker lite blandat smågodis anis/fänkål, söta frukter, äpple, körsbär, aprikos. Eftersmaken lite torrare aningen funk, lite humle och lätt syrlighet. Riktigt fin balans räddar ölet från att bli för tungt. Riktigt gott.

On tap at Lost Abbey - Pours amber with a filmy tan head. Nose is astringent boozy sweet bread malt...just gross. Taste is grainy, spicy bread--real dry with a little sweetness and a touch of tropical fruit. Thin and fluffy with biting carbonation.

Fat@Akkurat. Grumligt mörkt bärnstensfärgad vätska. Härlig brett-doft med antydan av honung. Söt och len inledning som sedan körs över med en stram och dammig jordkällare.

@ Akkurat 14-12-10: riktig trevlig både doft och smak. Mycket fin hetta och trevliga smaken av torkat frukt och lite brett. En riktig bra balans. Härlig vintervärmare. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone ---- Soberness not garanteed!
