Our traditional Bruery Christmas beer on Christmas.
Bright orange with a thin, insta-skim head. Smells like pineapple juice and fuzzy Belgian yeast phenols. Tastes like it smells - fuzzy pineapple. Tangerine/nectarine (I don't know that I can tell the difference) in back.
Good but intensely juicy brew. Like a pineapple, tangerine cocktail. Had I known I would have brought fruit and mini-umbrellas.

750 ml bottle
Served in a tulip glass
A - It is peach in color with one inch of off-white head.
S - The aroma gives off scents of pear, pineapple, and cinnamon.
T - The taste is exactly like the smell. I get pear, pineapple, and cinnamon. i do also taste some Belgian yeast spiciness.
M - Moderate
O - It is a well done BSPA with added spices to give it a Christmas feel. i really enjoyed this beer. It is probably the best new to me Christmas beer of this season.

Poured into a Funky Buddha Brewery snifter. Cellared for one year.
A- Pours a hazy orangeish amber color with a 1/4 inch beige head that's short-lived and soon fades to a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a sheer sheet of surface foam. Semi-resilient lacing leaves a thick ring behind.
S- Moderate amount of yeasty barnyard funk plus some orange zest, candi sugar and booze.
T- Whoa, you can really taste the pineapple juice. It's actually like drinking a pineapple juice liquor cocktail but just a bit more complex with some yeast and a tad bit of malt at work. Some other flavors come out as a result like mango and orange but it's just full-on pineapple juice through most of the ride. Things become more enjoyable as it warms but I think it's just because I do like pineapple juice.
M- A bit sharp and acidic but not in a very good way since the booze also adds to the bite and creates a discordance. Medium-low carbonation with a lightish body.
O- About as one-dimensional as it gets. Drinkable, but easily the most disappointing in The Bruery's Christmas beer series.
