Silvan7 (1097) - Samarate, ITALY - APR 18, 2013
Bottle @ home. Versione natalizia della Bieken, la supera in quasi tutti gli aspetti. Al profumo erbaceo e floreale agiung edelle note speziate molto interessanti tipo vin brulé ( chiiodi di garofano / zenzero, etc.). Il colore è scuro, mogano e con riflessi rossastri, non è trasparente me è più limpida della versiona standard, anche se non è filtrata. La schiuma è comunque biancastra e compatta. In bocca il miele è più evidente e anche la luppolatura è meno generosa per lasciar spazio ai gusti speziati delle birre natalizie. Qualcosa mi ricorda le bevande al chinotto. Finale più appiccicoso e lungo.

jbird13 (6) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JAN 6, 2013 does not count
Dark brown belgian. Citrus seems to make for beer that is a bit sweet and a bit too sour. Plenty of ’christmas spices’. OK as a winter beer, but definitely not top tier.

erickok (5396) - Leuven, BELGIUM - JAN 4, 2013
Dark ruby with small tan head. Dark malts, figs, strawberry jam and wintery hops. Taste is more complex with sweetness of lots of cherry. Caramel malts to add. Different approach than the dark brown, roasted and spiced Belgian winter beers, but very Christmas y still. Nice. (33cl bottle from De Bierwinkel Leiden)

dexcansino (575) - Andalucía, SPAIN - JAN 1, 2013
[Probada como "Santa Bee"> Cerveza oscura con espuma cremosa. Sabor y olor especiado, pero menos dulce o especiada de lo habitual en las cervezas navideñas, teniendo también un poco menos de alcohol. Buena elección.

stouby (4437) - Holbæk, DENMARK - JAN 1, 2013
Bottle at home. Zazy brown with an off-white head. Aroma heavy malty (caramel, spicy, honey). Flavor almost heavy sweet, medium spiced, notes of licorice. Medium+ body, some alcohol, quite flat.

n0mel (250) - FINLAND - DEC 18, 2012
12.12.12. Bottle. Small, off-white foam. Clear brown beer. Aroma is sweet candy, but the flavor is not very sweet. Smooth mouthfeel. Not much of an aftertaste. Good beer.

karlsnes (47) - NORWAY - DEC 8, 2012
08.12.2012 3. luke i Ølkonsortiets julekalender. Uts: klar, mørk bronse, moderat kullsyre og godt med lyst beige skum. Duft: fruktig og sødmefylt (kompott), noe alkohol og hint av humle. Smak: middels fyldig. For mye alkohol i smaken, litt dårlig balanse, men godt med frukt og noe skuffende ettersmak, preget av alkohol og noe syre. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
