Weissenohe Monk’s Christkindl, a German dunkel from Bavaria, fits right into our Christmas celebrations. Christkindl means “Christmas present” and is lovely one indeed.
Monk’s Christkindl pours copper-brown with a small cream-colored head of larger bubbles. It smells of sweet malts and a bit of bread yeast. It has a medium-body, with toasted malts, light caramel, and hops in the background. It finishes sweet. It comes in a 500ml bottle and at 5.1% ABV I suggest keeping a couple of bottles on hand.
Klosterbrauerei Weissenohe is a traditional brewery that continues to make their beer according to the Bavarian purity law of 1516. The brewery traces it’s lineage back to a 10th century Benedictine monastery and is one of the oldest breweries in Franconia (central, South Germany).
