COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An unconventional Christmas brew that departs from the tradition of Winter warmers being sweet and malty. Our Christmas brew is abundantly hopped with the four American C's: Cascade, Chinook, Columbus and Centennial. Cinnamon and coriander provides the Christmas spirit and adds to the merriness.
Brewed on Maris Otter ale malt, crystal malt, wheat malt, soft brown sugar and Demerare cane sugar. Ølfabrikken Jule Ale is, of course, unpasteurized, unfiltered and cask conditioned like all of our beers. Introduced on 'Fynske Øldage' 2005.

650ml bottle purchased at Knightly Spirits in Orlando, Florida. Rusty brown in colour with a long lasting beige head, excellent lacing. Aroma is quite hoppy, lots of citrus, caramel malts, some spice and oranges. Flavour is hoppy, spice becomes more pronounced as this warms, some light alcohol, caramel sweetness. Hoppy mouthfeel, medium body, moderate carbonation. Finishes long, hoppy, sweet and warming. Nice beer.

Vignale (2196) - Malmö, SWEDEN - DEC 14, 2014
Flaska från SB. Julöl 2013. Ölfabrikken har en särskild plats i mitt hjärta som det första danska mikrobryggeri jag provade efter att ha upptäckte Barley wine-butiken i Köpenhamn. På den tiden hade ÖF etiketter som såg ut att vara tillverkade med hjälp av en gammal skrivmaskin. Detta öl löper tillbaka till den tiden men jag undrar i hur hög grad det är samma brygd. Nu är flaskan ett drygd år gammal men humlen lyser helt med sin frånvaro. Istället någonting som liknar engelsk strong ale eller dubbelbock med söta maltsmaker. Karameliserat socker, farin, smörkakor dominerar smakbilden. Jag tror att året i kälaren gjort det gott för smakbilden hänger ihop ch sötman över inte överväldigande funkar ganska bra på julbordet. Men långt ifrån den wow.upplevelse jag fick 2006 och som jag minns än idag.

Cantabrian (882) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - JUL 12, 2014
Very sweet, maple syrup and dried fruits aroma. Cloying. The appearance is not cool. Watery brown, looks like the product from a tummy bug. Flavour is malty, honeyish, with some boring Christmas cake, and a not particularly memorable combination of spices - but not unpleasant either. Palate is quite thin. In the end, this is not my kind of beer. I can’t say that it is bad, but seems to be far away from the excitement stirred by its Baltic Porter sister.

hotstuff (4274) - Indiana, USA - FEB 11, 2014
Rated on 5-21-2010 - This bottled beer pours a medium very fizzy head that quickly dissipates, orange brown body, minimal carbonation noted, floaties, and virtually no lacing. The aroma is malty, coriander, spicy, and cinnamon. The taste is sweet, malty, spicy, coriander, lightly hoppy, and has a semi-dry finish. The palate is tingly and this beer is medium bodied. This beer has a very nice flavor. It is a sipping beer and would be a nice winter time beer.

BiffNilsson (255) - Perstorp, SWEDEN - FEB 1, 2014
Ljusbrun med gulaktig skinkorna som försvinner direkt. Söt doft och smak. Ganska alkoholig i smaken. Jag är inte överens med andra som gett denna ett högt betyg. Jag upplever den som obalanserad.
