2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Malty and fruity aroma reminded me a little of the westmalle dubbel. Good so far. Hazy, brown-orange coloured with a lasting, off-white head. Taste is a little alcoholic, malty, fruity, sweet, sugary. Perhaps a little winey indeed. Not really my kind of beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Labeled Santa-Bee. Large creamy off-white head that mostly lasted. Good display of lacework. Muddy dark brown color. Aroma of sweet almond, toasted malt, caramel, fruit, citrus and mild chocolate. Over the palate came heavy sweet notes of caramel, fruit, toasted malt and again chocolate. Medium bodied with an average carbonation and light alcoholic texture. Heavy sweet flavor with maybe a twist of acidic and bitterness in there. Lingering caramel, toasted malt and mild chocolate finish. I love it even if it was quite sweet.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottle, 0.33 l, as Santa-Bee at Oud Arsenaal) The beer poured dark brown and almost clear. Its head was medium sized, long lasting and lightly brown shaded white. Aroma had cloves, malts and yeast. Palate was medium bodied and dry with medium carbonation. Flavours were clove, spices, hops, malts, yeast and bitterness. Aftertaste was dry and malty. Ok beer but bit too spicy and also boring.

11.2oz Santa Bee bottle purchased in Belgium. Dark, thick, brown-amber color. Sweet with a honey-candi sugar finish. Mellow and drinkable and smooth for 8.5%. A very well-balanced Belgian Christmas Ale. I really have enjoyed all of this brewery’s honey beers, and this may be my favorite yet.
