Jubelale Review


Jubelale is a beer that has enough of a body to keep individuals properly warm; the malt backbone of this beer is enough to keep imbibers interested. Jubelale touches upon an array of styles – bocks, hop-heavy beers, and is able to establish a wholly new style in the course of 12 fluid ounces. The beer pours with a reddish-brown coloration and a small bit of lacing. From there, the beer’s initial sip yields hints of pitted fruits and malt,p with the perfect amount of burn at the end of each sip.

Hints of raisins and prunes can be tasted, with a slight upturn at each quaff. The beer does well in refreshing its set of flavors; no matter whether an individual is at the beginning or ending of a session, Jubelale will come forth as unique and interesting.

Jubelale is a seasonal effort; make sure to pick it up as soon as possible, before Deschutes moves on to their next effort. Visit Deschutes’ website ( or their Facebook ( . In terms of holiday-themeed ales, I feel that the well-moderated flavors present in Jubelale are significantly better when compared to other efforts on the market. With such a complexity, there is little doubt in my mind that this should be the go-to effort of the next few months. Take special care to view the beer’s new bottle art, crafted by Avlis Leumas; the sheer attention to detail mirrors in a close fashion the nuances that are present in each Jubelale.

Rating: 9.3/10
