Beat the freeze with Eight Degrees ! The 2012/2013 evolution of our winter seasonal is a strong, spiced deep ruby ale. We have developed this beer in collaboration with local spice specialists Green Saffron, producing a rich, dark ale that will warm you from the inside. Crystal and Munich malts are complimented with Fuggles hops, dessicated orange peel, cloves, cinnamom. Best sipped s-l-o-w-l-y next to a roaring fire. Snow optional ! Ingredients : mountain river water, malted barley, wheat, hops, yeast and unique spice blend from Green Saffron.

    Aroma: 10 | Appearance: 8 | Mouthfeel: 8 | Flavor: 8 | Overall: 8

    500 ml capped bottle, gift from the brewer. Poured in the original Eight Degrees stemmed tulip glass an unfiltered and hazy copper-brown coloured Spiced Ale with a one finger beige, fine and dense foamy head that had a very long retention and tons of micro bubbles. Sustained carbonation. Some lacing. Some floating sediments powder. The aroma is yeasty, fruity, oranges, sourish apples, spicy, star anise, orange peels, cloves. The flavour is yeasty, sourish fruits, apples, oranges, spicy, star anise, cloves, oranges peels, cinnamom, the malts are under the reign of the spices. The mouthfeel is fulled, quite thick and sourish bitter. The texture is a bit oily. This medium bodied Spiced Ale has a lingering spicy and bitter finish. A rich spicy side, star anise, orange peels and a marked sourish side give this Winter's Ale from the Province Munster in Ireland a particular charm. I like it.
