75 cL bottle, seriously this deserves a sep. listing as it is has a dif. ABV and dif. label. Light caramel malt aroma and a mild alcojol aroma. Pours slight hazy brown with a lacing off-white head. light spiced malt based aroma. Flavour is sweet caramel with a distinct caramel malt base. Nice and different from the normal noel.

750ml bottle. Poured an amber color with a larger sized off white head. Aromas of yeast and bananas/fruity. Tastes of the same fruitiness, yeast, and caramel. Alcohol content well hidden and creeps up on you. Extra point for drinking on Christmas Eve wrapping presents ...

sebletitje (6687) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JAN 2, 2014
Bouteille 75cl de et partagée avec Tderoeck. BB 12/2013. Ambrée, col beige léger. Arôme est maté, caramel, fruité noir garde un bouquet légèrement sucré avec pas mal de caramel, note grillé en rétro. Palais est malté avec les 13% de suite présent, caramel et fruité noir entre prune et raisin, date ponctué par un sucre candy. Le tout reste très belge dans l’approche avec une bière rivalisant avec les grosses productions trappiste voire abbaye. Complexe et nettement plus savoureuse que de souvenir.
