COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A Schlafly Ale for Culinaria. Holiday Ale is a bottle-conditioned, English-style "Old Ale" brewed at The Schlafly Tap Room on 21st Street for Culinaria, a Schnucks market. This ale is a collaborative effort by the Brewers of Schlafly Beer and our friends at Schnucks to celebrate the ongoing revival in the City of St. Louis. The Schlafly Tap Room opened in 1991 and was one of the first efforts of the modern revival. Culinaria, opened in 2009 on 9th Street, brings a fine food and beverage market back to Downtown St. Louis. Our Holiday Ale is a rich, amber-colored ale that will pair well with meats, cheeses and desserts that accompany the Holidays. Celebrate the Season in St. Louis and best wishes from your neighbors as Schlafly and Culineria.

iwantalambic (1478) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - DEC 2, 2009
750 mL capped bottle, sampled fresh in December 2009: pink, orange candy hue with a creamy ivory head that settles to the outer edge of my glass. Deep, sugary malt aroma with candied nuts, fruitcake, and toasted grains. Peaty alcohol mixes with charred honey over-ripe bananas. Slightly bitter initially, with cinnamon apple slices and candied pears. Long, malty flavour with significant alcoholic raisins, buttered toffee and bitter honey. Though the palate begins fairly gritty the finish is creamy and smooth. The alcohol creeps up on you slightly, but is more warming than overwhelming. A nice holiday treat.
