24 Beers of Christmas: Day 10

By scot in 24 Beers of Christmas, Beer on Friday, December 10th, 2021

Day 10 of the 24 beer of Christmas is ‘Tis the Squeezin’, an Berliner Weisse, from Metal Monkey Brewing in Romeoville, Illinois. A Berliner Weisse beer in a Christmas pack? Interesting. Not something that I expected but I do like the innovation of doing a non-seasonal style with seasonal ingredients. My hat off to Metal Monkey for going off the rails a bit (and for not using spices).

‘Tis the Squeezin’ as the typical Berliner type yeast profile. I can’t describe it but I know it when I waft it. The cranberries and orange don’t really assist the aroma but the two work well in the taste to add to the tartness of the beer, which lingers. Overall a solid offering and something I would have again, especially in the warmer months. Enjoy!
