Bottle Kerstbierfestival 2007: Poured a copper to blonde color with a slightly off white head. The aroma was spice with coriander and alcohol was present. The taste was an unexpected malty with some spice to off set it. There was a bitter alcohol finish. I rather enjoyed this beer.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled - live at Kerstbierfestival 2007. Hazy orange-amber with a lazing beige head. The aroma is quite light with notes of fruit and malt - especially peaches, as well as light notes of alcohol. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of alcohol, peaches, cloves, and oranges, leading to a dry spicy finish.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cloudy amber color. There is too much yeast aroma, with the malt and light spices. The flavor is a bit malty, also quite sweet, with a touch of orange zest; the bitterness comes out only at the very end. Enjoyable (because of the sweetness), but simplistic.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy orange color. I hardly see any carbonation. Flavor and aroma: I think a lot of coriander is used. A bit too much if Iím correct in my analyses.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy orange, firm creamy off-white head. Floating yeast particles. Very yeasty nose. Medium to full bodied. Mostly soft, wheaty, yeasty-fruity flavor - some lemon and apples. Hides alcohol quite well. Too yeasty to be really enjoyable.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottled, at Essen Kerstbierfestival 2004. Hazy amber, no head and minimal condition. Nasty over sweet syrupy aromas, lots of unbalanced butterscotch in the mouth and a lingering sickly sweet finish.
