Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 14, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 10, 2005 (Bottle 75 cl) The Abbaye d’Aulne beers used to be brewed by another brewery (I don’t remember which one) but are now made by Val de Sambre. The beer is chestnut brown, clear and appears filtered (possibly with a bit of sediment). Decent, slightly brownish head. Typically, fruity ale-character, nice nutty aroma with typical fullness and sweetness. An absolutely splendid christmas beer. 241203

rauchbier (3634) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2005
Bottle conditioned, at Essen Kerstbierfestival 2004. Amber bronze, low white head and low condition. Sweet malt with a hint of fruitiness in the nose. Slight figginess develops in the mouth along with a brief roasted note. Lingering fruitiness and grain in the finish.
