Corsendonk Christmas Ale (Belgium) – This is a style I sometimes struggle with, because the results are so often more like someone fermented a fruitcake than anything beer-like. But while there’s plenty of spice and cooked-down fruit here, it’s still ale-like. No one would deny how thick it is, but there’s enough freshness to support the weight. I like this a lot, and the appeal increases as the nights grow colder. (12/11)
