Type: High fermentation Christmas beer in the tradition of northern France
Color: Dark amber / Bright / Old Cognac
Packaging: 33cl - 75cl
Ingredients: 4 Malts - Hops - Spices
Nose: Fruity, sweet and spicy
Tasting (2012): At first it’s soft and tasty with a note of spicy aniseed and a slight licorice finish. In northern France, the tradition is to make a brew in October (just before receiving the new raw malts) with malt stocks from the previous year to avoid mixing the vintage. This beer is perfumed with spice. Mascaret makes a different Christmas beer every year
Tasting winter temperature: (8°/9°)
