COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This winter wheat beer uses dark malting to provide subtle toasty notes. We then single-hop and dry-hop this beer with Citra hops from our friend Brads farm. Interesting pineapple notes from the Citra hop provide a stark contrast to the toasty notes in the body. An engaging and sessionable Winter Seasonal. ABV: 5% IBUs: 62

Saveur Bire Beery Christmas # 22. The beer has a nice reddish brown copper color. The beer is quite clear, with a tiny haziness. On top of the beer a normal layer of offwhite foam is formed. The foam collapses a bit quickly, leaving a nice drape. The smell of the beer is nice. I smell nice average hop aromas. I smell nice American hop aromas, which give the beer nice smells of pineapple, some citrus fruits and pine. It is rather sweet and slightly sour, combined with that nice hoppy bitterness. I also smell a nice toasty malt aroma, giving both sweets and bitters. The balance in the smell is nice. The flavour is nice to. I smell nice strong hop flavours, giving pineapple, some citrus and pine. The toasty malt is a bit stronger in the flavour than in the smell. The taste is a bit richer. Strong bitters, sweets and delicate sours are in good balance. Hop and malt flavours support each other nicely. The body of the beer average. The body is medium and the texture is rather smooth. The carbonation is nice and strong. The finish is a bit dry. But all in all, a good beer.

Bouteille de 33cl. Couleur ambre fonce, mousse moyenne, tenue moyenne. Une bire assez houblonne sur l attaque mais qui file sur des notes de plus en plus torrfies. Pas vilaine mais un peu binaire, carbonnation moyenne. Beery Christmas #22.
