Brewed and bottled by the Brasserie Duyck in Jenlain France, since 1922.
This 6.8% ABV French Christmas Ale pours a deep and dark copper in color, glowing with orange tints. There is an off-white head that is short lived and dissipates very rapidly. The aroma is intensely fruity, very citrusy, citrus fruit peels, over a caramel malt base. The taste is a tangy and tart citrus blend, lime, grapefruit and orange over a counter balancing sweet caramel malt base. It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas! This is a tasty and pleasing beer that shares similarities to some other styles of beer, but remains unique. Highly recommended.
