Number nine is a wheat beer. You might think that a wheat beer can not be a Christmas beer. This is America where everyone is looking to break old traditions and explore the new and where we are not stuck in old European chains. Winter White Ale from Bell’s Brewery in Michigan, is a slightly sweet beer with a clear wheat flavor. It’s a good beer that I would enjoy on a Hawaiian Christmas. But not right now when is getting below zero (C) at night. I’m looking for something more tradition. I am after all European.
