When this unconventional holiday beer won gold at the Canadian Brewing Awards, we decided to make it a seasonal tradition. The 2012 version resembled a Christmas orange, with additions of toasted clove, tangerine zest, and kafir lime leaf – this year we’re doing something a bit different…
Though it beholds no actual hallucinogenic properties, we do hope the 2013 version will give you visions of sugar plums dancing in your head. This tart and fruity brew boasts a one third sour mash foundation with the addition of fresh blue plums and lemon zest.
What it smells and tastes like: A soft floral bouquet that gives way to subtle aromas of honey and fruit. Characteristic Belgian yeast aromatics and phenolic flavours. Nice tart lemon on the palate.
