Deschutes Brewing Jubelale

I’ve been waiting to sample this years’ Jubelale. You see, every year, Deschutes Brewery out of Bend, Oregon comes out with their Fall seasonal. Each year, it’s a bit different.

However, the description is always the same. Jubelale is a crisp ale brewed with crystal malts and enough hops to make it well balanced. The ale could be described as a darker ale, but not as nutty or malty as a stout or porter.

On another note, Jubelale chooses one local Central Oregon artists and asks him/her to come up with the art work that adorns the Jubleale bottle each year. This is a great move as it features local ale and local artistry in one stroke.

This years’ Jubleale does not disappoint. It’s crisp but refreshing taste compliment the holiday perfectly. Jubelale is a well balanced and flavorful ale that will warm you up as the season turns cold.
