Description

Your traditional dark, malt-rich Christmas ale may simply overpower a light, delicate holiday dish like cod, lutefisk, or its fermented cousin: rakfisk. Instead, we have created our strong, pale, winter solstice ale: Solsnu 4.5%. Very much in the French farmhouse tradition, this "beer for keeping" (bière de Garde), is characterized by a mild fruitiness from the fermentation process, a moderate, but noble note of hops, and a clean malt body. A pale, refreshing ale that works well even by itself without food.
