Translated as the Winter Solstice, Solstice d’hiver is perfect for the season. Once I opened the bottle, I was hit with aromas similar to scotch. Sharp roast and stinging hops strike at the surface of this beer. Alcohol and fruit play together throughout the flavor with an equally sharp finish. Hops dance lightly on the tongue as alcohol leaves a lingering burn.
