Not the best thing they brew. Drier than the dubbel. Beautiful dark brown/reddish color. Nice body!! I'd buy it again but I wouldn't hunt it down.

Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - DEC 28, 2003
Pretty good belgian christmas ale. Nice clear deep amber color with an off white head which lasts over an hour. Aroma is yeasty and fruity with some estery notes. Flavor is fruity and bready with lots of complex crystal and belgian malts. Medium to full body- with a smooth aftertaste. Very nice but I'd rather have a corsendank christmas ale anyday.

EdPaulsen (117) - Rochester, New York, USA - DEC 28, 2003
layered and complex. doesn't taste like a christmas beer, no spices and not that dark and rich. quite floral, surprisingly bitter. ok, and generally quite nice and warming but not worth 10$per bottle

snoot (286) - Anaheim, California, USA - DEC 27, 2003
Dark brown, big white rocky head on top. Aroma is predominately malty, some yeast and hop notes also. I thought it was a touch too sweet, but a decent effort nonetheless.

HildigŲltur (5105) - KÝbenhavn, DENMARK - DEC 26, 2003
Brown coloured with nice head. Rather malty and yeasty aroma. Quite yeasty and slightly alcoholic flavour.

Bill Becker (793) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - DEC 25, 2003
Nice reddish brown colour with little to no head. Swishing the brew in my mouth, there was an abundance of spicy flavours maybe dominated by cloves. For a 9%abv brew, I thought the alcohol was pretty well hidden.

omnivore (270) - San Francisco, California, USA - DEC 25, 2003
Warm woody brown in color, with a lively tan head. Strong cidery aroma, reminiscent of a lambic, almost. Warm broad tast. Sweet and hearty. Spices and hops well balanced into a really nice winter brew.

egajdzis (6067) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 24, 2003
Poured a reddish brown color with a nice and small tan and red head. Spicy aroma of some fruit but dominated by malt. Sweet taste of malt, some candy and even alittle cinnamon. Sweet, chewy, spicy mouthfeel. Overall a festive drink, but thats about it.

Copper in colour. Aroma is lightly malty, caramel, some yeast. Flavour was yeasty, slightly sweet, candyish. Finish was spicy, some bitterness.
