COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
St. Benedict of Nursia lived in the late 5th to early 6th centuries. Legend has it while living in solitude, he was befriended by a raven that later saved his life. He is most remembered for writing the Rule of St. Benedict that, among other virtues, teaches humility. Inspired by this Rule we humbly offer St. Benedict’s Winter Ale, a hand-crafted ale using generous amounts of dark roasted malts and the finest noble hops for a robust warming flavor.

drpimento (2103) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 4, 2013
Actually one of Point’s better efforts. Poured at a good temperature with a large foamy, fizzy, light tan head that soon settled to a large island and ring with a bit of lace. Color is a clear orange red mahoganey with lots of bubble trails. Aroma is immediately bubble gum, then fruit, malt, caramel. Flavor is like nose with sweet on top then bitter and tang. Not a lot going on. Body is a tad thin and carbonation fizzy. Finish is like flavor, fairly long, and lelt me thinking: I know they can do it if they want. The question is, why don’t they?

Clear amber color out of the bottle with a thin khaki colored head. Big sweet nose with some puffed wheat and spice notes. Caramel and toffee with puffed wheat, banana, some spice and dark fruit flavors. A little thin in the palate. Not remarkable.

Mild roasted malt aroma, pours a clear dark amber with a off-white head. Mild malt flavor, with a touch of roast and toffee, very quick finish with just a touch of roast. Thin bodied, very little going on, not bad, just not very good either.

Draft at Land O Lakes World of Beer. Pours a nearly clear rich amber color with a small white head. Minimal lacing with a small residual island of head remaining in the middle of the glass. Aroma has has a number of dunkleweizen notes to it with banana and clove present along with some sweet caramel malt. Flavor is more sweet with caramel malt sweetness to it. Decent winter.
