La notte del 5 dicembre, i Krampus si aggirano fra le vie ed i vicoli dei paesini dell’arco alpino. Coperti da pelli di montoni, con corna e zampe di capra, agitando le loro nere catene, terrorizzano gli abitanti dei villaggi. È il preludio dell’arrivo del Vescovo San Nicola (antico precursore de Babbo Natale) che riporterà la pace, dolci e doni nella comunità. Una birra dedicata al Natale, calda ed avvolgente, dalle tenue speziatura. Ideale per aspettare lálba accanto al focolare, al riparo dalle incursioni del demoni.

sebwaw (40) - POLAND - DEC 27, 2014
Big bottle, pours deep amber, hazy with soft, creamy head. Aroma is mostly grapes, wild yeast, much sourness. Some maltiness in taste, sour grapes, some dried fruits, even a touch of vanilla. Short finish, light bitterness. Its a decent beer at best, many more better examples.

Cruzer (94) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 26, 2014
Pretty surprised as to how sour it turned out, but I enjoyed it! Very fruity and sugary aroma, flavour of lemon and citrus.

Gerbeer (2169) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 13, 2014
330 ml bottle. Pours a hazy brown with lots of carbonation but only light head. Aromas of red wine vinegar, a little cherry, and wood with some odd vegetal notes in behind. Very sharp vinegary flavor with enough carbonation to push vinegar in the nose. Yikes and yuck. 5

vadie (910) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 9, 2014
Jaune/marron brumeux avec très peu de mousse beige. L’arôme est d’abord très dégueux comme les pieds salles mais après quelques minutes c’est du citron très aigre avec du levure sauvage et de la vinager de cidre de pomme. Le goût resemble l’arôme. Super aigre. Unique mais je ne dirais pas que cet bonne.

Pours a turbid brown with minimal head (though it might be how I’m storing these bottles as I’ve noticed all the advent bottles are ending up this way for me). Smells of apple, yeast, somewhat sweet. VERY sour, slight acetone and cider with an aftertaste like rind. It certainly wasn’t what I was expecting. Not my style but worth a try, probably wouldn’t buy again though.
