Advent Beer Calendar 2007: Day 22: Pisgah Solstice

Pisgah BrewingTo commemorate the winter solstice today, I selected Pisgah Brewing‘s Pisgah Solstice. Even though they brew this beer year round, it certainly sounds like a seasonal:

Pisgah’s year round Belgian. A Tripel ale, this beer contains moderately fruity esters with an alcoholic complexity supported by a soft malt character. This beer is pale gold in color and 9.5% ABV.

Scoot yourself down to Black Mountain, North Carolina for a glass or two of this beer (or a growler); they don’t bottle, but it’ll be worth it.
