Jubelale 2008

According to Deschutes website, Jubelale was the first beer the brewery bottled. Each year, a different artist creates a unique and seasonal label. This year Sister's resident, Pam Jersey Bird was chosen for her seasonal painting which depicts a river running across the bottle. Visitors to the Bend brewery can view each year's unique label.

The 2008 Jubelale is a dark coffee like brew with a bouquet of dried fruit and an ABV of 6.7%. Don't let the dark color scare you off. It is a friendly tasty beer with a malty aftertaste that is pretty pleasant. It's only available from October to December so you better act fast.

Jubelale is one of my favorite seasonals. Sometimes I enjoy a malt focused beer, and Jubelale fits the bill.

I just discovered this winter warmer ale this season and it looks like I've been missing out on something great. It's now among my favorites like Anderson Valley Brewing Co.'s Winter Solstice.

I also gave a good review of this beer at my new blog: http://beer47.com/2009/01/jubelale-2008-review/
