3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very pretty reddish brown colour, fairly small head. Definately a decent Belgian Christmas ale. Initial impression is sweet: toffee and maybe licorice. Surprisingly(?) this is decently balanced by a mild bitter finish (along with a slight acidity). Palate is quite lively. Not bad at all.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A beutiful red beer with a beutiful head though the color gets unclear if you pour the yeast. The aroma is spicy with notes of cloves. The flavor is malt sweet (too sweet for me) with alcohol running over the tongue. It has a very low carbonation and the flavor is rather simple. An OK beer but too sweet.
