I Got Everything I Need For The Holidays
Malty | Raisin | Spicy
For the 6th installment of our collabo series with Eastbound Brewing, this year’s Sam & Dave Christmas Ale is a decidedly different take than in years past. Leaving the Belgian styles we normally do, this year we are going to try our hand at a German inspired Weizenbock. Utilizing a traditional weizen yeast and using a rich malt bill, this year’s offering is most certainly different from years past. With a fruity and spicy yeast driven aroma, a blend of 5 different malts, there is definitely lots to feel merry for about this special holiday release. Pouring a dark brown, this unfiltered wheat ale has a fluffy white head with aromas of spice, raisin, and a hint of banana. The flavour has a ton of spice and fruit derived from the yeast, while a rich malt character from the generous use of wheat and a touch of dark specialty malt gives it the heft it requires . The elevated ABV, gives a full bodied mouthfeel with a noticeable alcohol warming. A real holiday sipper to be enjoyed with family & friends.
