This beer has a dark red body - hue apperance and a coarse white scum collar. I have drunk the beer from the bottle and it had no carbonic acid. The initial flavor taste is karamelsweet.

On tap at the brewpub. Red copper colour with a solid offwhite head. Good fruity aroma, hints of bananas and berries. Fruity flavours, slightly sweet with caramel, drier towards the finish. Warming alcohol. A nice Christmas beer.

MiP (15296) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - DEC 15, 2004
Draught. Spicy, malty, yeasty aroma. Colour is dark red, big stable white head. Very smooth beer. Flavour is very malty and quite sweet with some burnt caramel in the aftertaste. Very well-balanced, harmonic beer.

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.

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.

Alengrin (4594) - 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.

Amber with very ruby-red highlights; even the head is pinkish coloured, not stable. Chocolate, some malt - nothing else to smell. Sourish notes above a lot of malt, some fruity cherry notes. Strange. Medium bodied, but very light, watery texture. Ends much sweeter in the aftertaste. It grows on you - but seen where it had to come from...
