Ungstrup (34696) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 26, 2013
Bottled. A hazy amber beer with an orangey head. The aroma has notes of spice hops, malt, and caramel, but also a light note of lactic acid. The flavor is lactic acid, malt, spices, and hay, leading to a tart finish. If a sour ale was the aim it wouldn’t be so bad.

Beersiveknown (5076) - NORTHERN IRELAND - DEC 11, 2011
A fair amount of cloves and ginger in this. Star anise less so. Warming but keeping the alcohol content well hidden.

garthicus (2912) - Dublin, IRELAND - NOV 21, 2012
On tap at The Brew Dock. Appearance: Ruby red, small off white head. Body somewhat cloudy. Aroma: amazing, cinnamon, Christmas pudding, pumpkin & roast squash with Christmas spices. Flavour: Bitter, flavour is slightly less Christmas-sy than the flavour but that’s a good thing, lovely balance of the spices and malts, again Christmas pudding and winter spices, cloves and cinnamon, Long sweet finish. Very nice indeed.

mzaar (2842) - Varberg, SWEDEN - JUL 12, 2013
Flaska. Lätt grumligt bärnstensfärgad med gulvitt fluffigt skum. Mängder med julkryddor plus apelsin och clementin i doften. Citronsur smak där det också ryms kryddnejlika, ingefära och apelsin. Något tunn, men ändå en trevlig julöl mitt i sommaren.
