Reddish Double color, nice lasting head. A: fruity/sour aroma welcomes you when pouring, mostly sour apples. Closer inspection reveals caramelized malts / bock, some rye, fresh cut grass notes, brown sugar. Cherry lacing. After yeast, brown sugar is much more pronounced. T: sweetness is much more pronounced, bock with cherries, Christmas (fruit) cake, hint of chocolate. Development is slightly boozy, mildly sour, some licorice notes. Medium body. Aftertaste is sweet and slightly boozy, but not sticky. Maybe a bit too sweet.

Lowenbrau (2640) - Asturias, Oviedo, SPAIN - MAY 15, 2015
330 ml bottle, lots of occasions during my early years of beerlover.
In short: spicy strong ale.
Labeled as "Regal Christmas", this was one of my fav xmas beers many years ago. A strong abbey dubbel, little spicy, with waming mouthfeel and aftertaste. Quite enjoyable.

TheFoamhead (166) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 18, 2015
An overall sweet character but also a light metallic taste. Hints of nuts,caramel and cani. The beer is on the sweeter side and hops are very hard to find. But its nice and drinkable. An average winter ale with a sweet heart.
