This wheat based farmhouse-style Christmas Ale is smooth and cloudy. Deeply kilned Belgian malts and our rustic farmhouse yeast come together to provide a bone-dry, warming richness with notes of dark fruit, wet stone, leather, and tobacco. In Season when ‘tis the Season.

corby112 (2722) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 16, 2015
Pours a dark ruby red/chestnut brown color with mahogany edges and a one finger, off-white head that quickly settles into a thin, lasting ring. Spotty lacing left behind. Slightly spicy aroma with subtle farmhouse funk and dark fruit notes. Slightly medicinal with some zesty pepper and cinnamon spice followed by sweet caramel malt, bread, toffee, raisin and cherry juice. On the lighter end of medium body with a crisp, zesty spice presence countered by sweet vinous fruits and subtle farmhouse yeast. Peppery with some cinnamon and nutmeg followed by subtle earthy funk and a sweet, vinous dark fruit presence. Lots of sweet cherry along with subtle grape, currant and other dark berries. Really nice balance and the high ABV is well masked making it very easy to drink. This beer was a pleasant surprise and I look forward to drinking it again sometime.

Draft. A brown beer with a beige head. The aroma has notes of butter, malt, and caramel. The flavor is sweet with notes of lemons, butterscotch, and brettanomyces, leading to a tart finish. Weird, wonder if this is how it is meant to be.
