In a blind tasting by BJCP trained experts, this beer rated


pFriem Family Brewers Belgian Christmas Ale

“Clear medium amber, well-carbonated with an off-white head that never goes away. An intoxicating licorice character in the aroma, with light lemon, coriander, and caramel malt. Spice and more licorice in the flavor with some bready malt in the background work well with a creamy mouthfeel and body. Sweet malt, a touch of toast, and lightly spiced hops play well into the integrated coriander flavor. Semidry, smooth bitter finish. Offers something new in the flavor and complexity each time you come back.”
