Alengrin (1824) - BELGIUM - AUG 2, 2014
Christmas barley wine with thin, off-white, loose head and brownish dark blonde colour, misty, tending towards amber. Powerful and opulent aroma of peach, pineapple, orange, honey, aniseed, cognac, ginger, cinnamon, gin; soft and velvety palate, sweetish with mild spicy tones of aniseed and juniper berry, citrussy freshness, soft maltiness, finish lightly hoppy bitterish with warm alcohol.

Koelschtrinker (10710) - KŲln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 6, 2011
Kerstbierfestival 2007 Intensiv hefiger und leicht sŁŖer Geruch. Mittelstarker hefiger Antrunk, kaum malzig, ein dezentes Kršuteraroma stellt sich nun in den Vordergrund, hefiger und hopfiger werdend. Lasch hopfiger Nachgeschmack. Test vom 20.12.2007, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 12,11,12,12,-,11

tderoeck (4729) - Gent, BELGIUM - FEB 5, 2010
Amber to ruby color, pretty strange for a "blonde de noŽl". Nothing blond about this baby. Smelled overwhelmingly like sour apple. Also a sour taste, with little sweetness in it. Sweet-bitter aftertaste, but the sourness keeps dominating the palet. No expiration date, but Iím afraid I got a very old bottle (Hopduvel, Gent). Fair enough, next time I went, they gave me a new one for free, but it tasted just as bad as this one. Needs to be revised, with a younger bottle.

CapedBrewsader (265) - Brasschaat, BELGIUM - FEB 12, 2009
33cl bottle at home, iRate: low bottle fill. Pours a hazy amber with almost no head. Oddly mead like aroma of fermented honey, just like one of my meads done with the westmalle yeast (it didnít work out). Floral esters with pear juice and some cardboard. Strange yeasty and solventy character. Flavor is much nicer than the aroma. Touch of wet paper on the front but then amber malt rolls in. Light chemical solvent underneath a pretty nice spice character. Ends with malt, spice and a bit of rich earth. Some rubber comes in as the beer warms up.

Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 19, 2008
(Bottle 33 cl) Clear deep golden with a creamy, off-white head. Somewhat strange tart fruit aroma. Medium-bodied, fruity - overripe fruit - and a very distinct underlying acidity. Finishes dry. Clearly this must be infected. 311008

Grovlam (4154) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 31, 2008
Bottle. [Tasting session @ Papsoe, 31-10-2008] Large fine bubbled white head that mostly lasted. Fair display of lacework. Clear golden color. Aroma of yeast, orange peel, Christmas spice, mild herbal notes as well. Over the palate came infected sour malty notes. Medium bodied with an average carbonation. Because of the infection the sour notes overpowers the sweetness. Mild sour spicy finish.

BoBoChamp (5477) - Gent, BELGIUM - JUL 29, 2008
33cl, exclusive brewery, from De Hopduvel Gent, not complex X-Mas brew, not balanced, cloudy, good head, nothing special, needs to be revised

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 25, 2007
A Mes rate: 33cl bottle at Kerstfest, Essen.
Slightly hazy dark gold with a thin white film. Aroma of orange and white spirit. Spice, bread and malt liquor flavour. Pretty poor to be honest.

yespr (31235) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - DEC 23, 2007
33 cL bottle, Kerstbierfestival 2007 in Essen/Belgium. Pours hazy orange with a lacing white head. Fruity aroma, some peach and oranges. Flavour is sweet malty with a classic belgian yeast note providing a nice smoothness to the brew. Finish holds a nice lingering fruity spice note. Classic belgian, yet different although not really Christmassy.
