Dead Frog’s Winter Beeracle Winter Ale is back this holiday season, packing in a flavourful punch in its 25 IBU, 7.5% alcohol by volume content.
We found the Winter Beeracle an amazingly refreshing winter ale with complex warmth, sweet vanilla, brown sugar, and hints of bitterness competing for our attention. Our oven-roasted chicken with root veggies was made all the more pleasurable by this deep brown ale.
Although we love baking with vanilla, when it comes to choosing a winter brew, we’re fans of less vanilla-up-front, more complex notes, and this one delivers the goods. Dead Frog revised the original recipe to lock in the vanilla with chocolate malt and orange peel, reminiscent of breaking open a Terry’s Chocolate Orange during the holidays.
Winter Beeracle is a rich winter ale with a slightly spicy aftertaste. It’s now available for a limited time in BC Liquor Stores.
