DruncanVeasey (7882) - NUNEATON, TOP, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAY 27, 2015
Thimble off the in-laws, Feb 2015? ABV 6.2%. Negligible halo on clear bronze. Big waft of spice could be caraway, mace and/or cinnamon. Lovely. Utterly dominated by the spices with a dunk of peppered cardboard. Heavy wheat. Other than the cardboard, afraid to admit I love it.

trapped (1655) - New York, TURKEY - FEB 12, 2015
Draught @ Waterfront Ale House. Brown with reddish tint, small foamy beige head, spicy caramel aroma, mocha-caramel taste, creamy texture, medium carbonation, abrupt finish with chocolate aftertaste. Very nice and fulfilling.

"a nicely spiced holiday brew. it was not overpowered by the belgian yeast, or the spices, which was nice. better than the usual, but not great. recommended."

guzgorog (525) - FRANCE - JAN 13, 2014
Bière ambrée, col de mousse sympathique. Au nez : épices, pomme verte, petit côté "acide" indeScriptible et désagrébale. En bouche, l’acidité est fortement présente est vraiment très désagréable, je ne retiendrait que ça. Mauvaise bière (à sa décharge le fût était peur être percé depuis trop longtemps ...)

Renobob (1333) - Besançon, FRANCE - JAN 1, 2014
Bue à la pression. Bière basique mais à noter que le brassin de Noël n'est ni trop sucré ni trop aromatisé à la cannelle, donc plutôt agréable. Ça reste une bière de soif classique.

Erzengel (6242) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - DEC 22, 2013
Dieses in Frankreich gefundene Weihnachtsbier ist aromatisiert mit Zimt und Spekulatiusgewürzen. Da bin ich mal gespannt! Im Glas gibt es sich hellbraun mit schönem weißem Schaum. Der Geruch ist neutral-süßlich. Schon im Antrunk ist das Bier süßlich-weihnachtlich. Erst kommt eine schöne dunkle, malzige Herbe zum Vorschein, die sich angenehm im mund ausbreitet, gefolgt von einer tollen, schön dazu passenden Lebkuchennote, die sogar noch etwas schokoladiges an sich hat. Das Bier ist nicht zu süß-aufdringlich, sondern schön abgewogen und die Aromen sind vom dunklen Bier dominiert, der Lebkuchen hält sich schön dezent im Hintergrund.
--> Eine überraschend leckere Bier-Lebkuchen-Kombination. Angenehm herb-malzig. Durchaus gelungen!
Test vom 24.12.2008, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 12,10,11,10,12,10 - 10,45
