UPDATED: JAN 7, 2011 As sweet as honey as every Christmas beer should be, taste of caramel, fruits, a lot of belgian beer and some barleywine features at palate. The body is hardy. I’m only disapponted for the aroma, inconsistent at nose.

Sweet orange and grape fruity aromas. Dark amber in color with fluffy white head. Sweet orange/grape fruity flavors with a grainy, winey, earthy finish. Complex and changing as you drink.

Butters (3946) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - DEC 18, 2010
Very interesting brew. Strange flavor profile. Mix between belgian mild and a wild. Weird mild funk. But extremely good job of hidding the abv. I would certainly drink again. Ve

ReAle (120) - Rome, ITALY - DEC 3, 2010
UPDATED: MAR 8, 2011 Bevuto alla spina al Birrifugio Trastevere (Roma) e ribevuta in bottiglia. Birra molto forte da meditazione, bellissimo colore rosso scuro vivo e limpido. L’alcool si fa sentire con i suoi nove gradi e mezzo. Aroma potente, in cui si distinguono frutta secca e legno. In bocca vinosa con discreto corpo, maltata e caramellata ma ben bilanciata con l’amaro. Un’altra ottima Birra del Borgo. Quest’anno molto ma molto meglio del precedente, a detta di tutti!

Bottle @ Friday Night Ulfborg Thing. Thanks to J&C. Pours unclear amber with floaties and a large fluffy white head. Nose is yeast and spices. Lively carbonation. Flavor is tart fruity with spices and caramel. Fine balance and overall a tasty brew!

redlight (2317) - Orlando, Florida, USA - NOV 8, 2010
2009 keg on draft @ redlight redlight. Sweet citrus with candy hearts and pixie sticks on the nose. Pours caramel amber with a solid white head. Caramel malts with candy and sweet citrus, very sweet with bready malt notes with a spicy hop finish with slight grass notes. Not bad, but I can’t drink too much of it!
