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.

BigMilly8 (389) - Wesley Chapel, Florida, USA - MAY 6, 2011
From bottle : Pours a hazy sweet tea brown. Very carbonated with bubbles. Hardly any head to speak off. Aroma on the other hand is very complex and robust. Slight floral hops and basement aroma. Also some alcohol, banana, and other mixed smells. Light on the tounge with a medium sweet taste. Not much of an aftertaste. Beer is ok, but this style isn’t for me.

Vignale (2181) - 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.

madvike (2847) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 13, 2014
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.

Peter_L (886) - SWEDEN - DEC 12, 2014
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!
