COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Zero head. A stunning color - a blood red ruby orange. Light hop aroma. Highly alcoholic flavor, reminding me of brandy. Not very ’beer’ flavored. Average beer. Wish it weren’t so alcoholic flavored.

andrewje41 (896) - Kenmore, Washington, USA - JAN 1, 2015
Draft pour at mammoth. Pours a reddish color with a patchy, foam head. Dry, grainy aroma. Really dry flavor, with an empty finish. I suppose the beer isn’t so bad, but compared to the usual from these guys paired with my expectations, I’m a little disappointed. I’ll drink this again.

Vignale (2281) - 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.
