Fifth Beer of Christmas 2019: Jolly Pumpkin Noel de Calabaza

Noel de Calabaza beer bottle

On the Fifth Day of Christmas, my brewer gave to me... Jolly Pumpkin Noel de Calabaza!

Jolly Pumpkin Noel de Calabaza

The sour ale pioneers at Michigan’s Jolly Pumpkin put their own personal stamp on a classic Christmas-y style with Noel de Calabaza. They brew a Belgian dark strong ale, a style many Belgian brewers release as a holiday seasonal, and then put it in oak barrels for six months where it receives the signature Jolly Pumpkin mixed-fermentation treatment.

What emerges is a dazzlingly complex beer with richly layered malt and barrel character, some acidity and subtle funk, and notes of dark fruit and chocolate

The Beer

This Belgium dark strong ale offers the complex flavor malty, layered hops, and hints of fruit and spice. It's deep mahogany coloring gives you the perfect sophisticated companion for all times of good cheer.

The ABV is 9%.
