This review is for the 09 Jubelale
I enjoyed the 08 version of this so I am looking forward to trying the 09. My local grocery story ended up putting it on sale last year because they had so much. Let's hope for a repeat.
A- Pours a beautiful dark copper, almost looks like a fruit beer. The pour alone causes some nice lacing. and the head is minimal but has a nice dark color with some large bubbles and pilling.
S- Very Christmasy. Nutmeg and spice, maybe some orange peel. A woody finish on the nose.
T- Solid and full taste. Tastes like a heavy saison, the aftertaste lingers. As soon as you swallow the entire beer changes. The spice is not the first thing you notice but it creeps up on you. Not the most amazing thing out of Deschutes and the taste is not really the best part of this beer but it is good none the less.
M- Awesome thick mouthfeel on this seasonal. Thick, creamy, rich, full....anything else you would like to call it.
D- Another decent seasonal. I hope it does go on sale so I can have an excuse to buy a bunch more.

Pours a deep amber/ruby color with a thin, tan (almost yellowish) head. Minimal lacing. No noticeable carbonation.
A very sweet with a bit of spice with a tinge of cola. Dark fruit notes, bitter cherries and fig spring to mind. Light brown sugar and molasses and a hint of hazelnut.
Beautifully balanced between bitter and sweet. A rush of slightly tart, dark fruit up front with dates and cherries. Sweetness brought to you by molasses with a bit of nice spicing that I can't seem to put my finger on. Tasty, this one is.
Smooth and super easy to drink. Medium bodied. Fizzy. Sweet finish.
Another fantastic offering from Deschutes. Easy to drink and loaded with character. Definitely worth picking up!
