Acquistata in bottiglia al bir&fud, è stata la birra più gradita della serata, anche se personalmente non condivido l’entusiasmo generale che ha suscitato. Aroma un po’ evanescente, in bocca ben bilanciata ma un po’ vuota nel finale.

Buona birra natalizia, bevuta in bottiglia da 750ml acquistata al bir&fud, dolce ma con luppolatura finale che equilibria bene il gusto.

Servita a temperatura ambiente da il meglio di sè. Io personalmente l’ho presa al Birrifugio trasteverino e me l’hanno servita troppo fredda. L’aroma e il sapore sono molto meno decisi e marcati sul dolce, se paragonati ad altre birre bevute quella sera (come la Bush de Noel), ma nel complesso meglio equilibrati. Il finale leggermente luppolato lascia la bocca fresca senza quel dolciatsro appiccicoso che personalmente detesto. Per me ottima, anche l’alcol si nasconde bene.

On tap at Ma Che Siete Venuti a Fa, many thanks to the hospitality of Manuele. Dark brown with cream head. This had moved to a slightly soured beer, but you could still tell the sweetish maltiness and spice notes. There was soured tartness with a yeasty edge. Somewhat challenging.

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.

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
