Alengrin (4604) - BELGIUM - JUL 24, 2014
Christmas ale from ’t Pakhuis, in very limited edition but yearly available there around Christmas. Off-white head on a bronze, cloudy beer; aroma caramel-malty, peach, strawberry, flowery hops accompanied by lightly smoky and meaty impressions. Tastes fruity and malt sweetish (caramel), in the finish some toasted bitterness. Quite okay but I’ve had many better Belgian Christmas beers.

Bart (2938) - Brussels, BELGIUM - AUG 27, 2011
Light brown coloured beer with very little carbonationa and a small off white head. Full sweet roasted and malty hinted aroma with fruity touches. Full palate. Finish is fruity sweet yeasty hinted with some suggary sweet touches. OK.

Koelschtrinker (17712) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUL 4, 2011
Hopfiger, sehr eigener Geruch und Antrunk, die süße und brotige Hopfigkeit verblasst nur langsam, stattdessen erscheint ein mittelhefiger Ton mit Gewürznuancen. Das Bier wird im Nachgeschmack hefiger, auch die Hopfigkeit nimmt wieder zu. Test vom 21.12.2007, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 9,9,10,8,-,9 - 9,00

Ungstrup (34660) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 2, 2008
Bottled at Kerstbierfestival 2007. A hazy brown beer with a thin beige head. The aroma is sweet with notes of malt and nuts as well as light notes of fruit. The flavor is sweet malty combined with notes of nuts and caramel, as well as a weird edge - that makes me wonder if it is a bit off?

1 L bottle, Kerstbierfestival 2007 in Essen/Belgium. Pours slight hazy copper coloured with a little lacing white head. Dark malty aroma. Flavour is mild sweet and malty. Has a nice soft yeasty note to the mild dried fruit. Ends with a mild bitterness and a lingering yeasty fruit note.

sayravai (4707) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 18, 2007
(Bottled@Kerstbierfestival 2007, Essen) Hazy darkish amber with a smallish head. Typical, stuffy Pakhuis house aroma with roasty malt and some alcohol. Licoricey-malty, toffeeish flavor beats the aroma, but doesn’t really impress. Some gingerbread, and warming alcohol. Medium body, smooth and low-carbonated. Average.

Bottle Kerstbierfestival 2007: Poured a caramel amber color with white head. Aroma is sweet toffee, fruit, and roasted malt. The taste is sweet caramel/toffee with nice roasted maltness.

Jerre (3235) - Waregem, BELGIUM - DEC 16, 2007
Yesterday from bottle @ the brew pub. Dark amber color, with dark white small head. Medium body. Aroma roasted malts, yeast, hops. Taste sweet, roasted malts, strong alcoholic touch bit sticky. Not bad.
