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.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
The DM & Hotstuff’s European Honeymoon trip beer number 38. This bottled brew from the ’t Brugs Beertje pub in Brugge poured a medium sized head of fine to medium sized long lasting off-white colored bubbles that left behind a uncarbonated transparent dark brown colored body. It had a mild vinous aroma and a strong vinous malty palate that smoothened in the finish. Very good flavor. Goes down very easily.
