I like the Fistmas...its probably one of the best Xmas ales I have had. The beer pours a rich clear amber with thin creamy head that is leaving a nice lace. The scent carries fresh hops that lean towards a pine with slight citrus. The taste follows the scent and is well balanced. There is a subtle hint of Belgium malt/sugar in this beer. The mouthfeel is medium in body with good carbonation. Overall I like it...nice job Revolution!

12 oz can poured into a snifter.
A - Gorgeous warm ruby mahogany in color, Fistmas has a sturdy off-white head resting on the clear beer while wispy lace encircles the glass.
S - Sharp hoppiness provides a quick slap in the face with a sack of pine needles drizzled with tropical fruit juice, overtaking the subtle holiday spice nuance quite quickly but, the aroma is welcoming, balanced by underlying toasted malt.
T - Spruce and pine needles stay at the forefront of Fistmas, providing a woodsy, generally earthy profile that still works well with the beer's undercurrents of juicy tropical fruit and base of nicely toasted malt. Holiday-themed spice assimilates itself into the woodsy character of the beer nicely as well, nudging towards the holiday cheer!
M - Smooth and crisp, Fistmas has a bitter hoppy nip that's complimented by toast and balanced by a touch of sweetness for a spice-and-hop leaning finish.
O - A unique winter warmer, Fistmas' spiced profile peeks through the toasted malt background but seems to get lost in the hop-infused woods of pine and tropical fruit. Revolution's Fistmas is interesting, seasonally appropriate and tasty, but one of this beer is enough for me in one sitting.
