Mikkeller Red White Christmas 
Posted: 22 April 2015  Beer Republic 6.0 
Mikkeller Red White Christmas from Denmark The Red White Christmas may not be the beer Santa would prefer on Christmas Eve. But it might be the beer of choice among the alcoholic chubbsters who play Santa at the department store shopping malls. It's a cross between an imperial red ale and a Belgian wheat beer.   
Avg price/liter: USD 21.18   ABV %: 8.0 Type: Belgian Wheat   
       


Mikkeller has accomplished a lot in its less-than-a-decade of existence. The brewery fancies way-out unusual combinations.  And as of this writing, they don't actually own their own brewery.  Mikkeller is a gypsy brewer.  Mikkeller crafts its own recipes in its offices in Copenhagen and funnels this out to various  breweries to produce, paying for the use of the brewery's facilities and the ingredients.           

The Red White Christmas may not be the beer Santa would prefer on Christmas Eve.  He has a sleigh to drive.  But it might be the beer of choice among the alcoholic chubbsters who play Santa at the department store shopping malls.  It's a cross between an imperial red ale and a Belgian wheat beer.  At 8% abv, anyone drinking a lot of this will be fantasizing he's Santa very early in to the drinking session.        

Like any Mikkeller brew, it's well made and takes your mouth to new places.  But the alcohol taste isn't subtle and overshadows the taste of the brew itself.        

I don't celebrate Christmas.  Probably no need for me to pick up a second bottle. Do you got the guts to pick up a first?
