pFriem Belgian-Style Christmas Ale Review

Belgian Christmas beer has a particular style. It’s rich, malty, and sweet. Many brewers in the United States make a Christmas beer, but not using the Belgian style. Particularly Northwest breweries tend toward hoppy beers brewed with a few herbs and spices. Good, but nothing like a Belgian. pFriem’s Belgian-Style Christmas Ale is different. It could be from Belgium.

pFriem brewed this beer as a Dubble, malty and rich. There’s coriander and Belgian dark candi sugar in the brew. The results are a full bodied, rich malty beer with toffee and smooth milk chocolate in the background. It’s 8% ABV and entirely delightful.

    While it's difficult to picture Santa as a young man, he was once. He met the future Mrs. Claus one snowy night when she offered him a winter ale that she brewed herself. It was love at first sight - for both the Mrs. and her winter ales. With Santa's growing fame, his favorite brews became named after his favorite day - Christmas. Santa now travels the world each year to spread the joy that began in a stable in Bethlehem two millennia ago.
