WVHouseofBeer (929) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 12, 2013
I REALLY enjoyed this beer. It has very nice aromas of dark fruit, brown sugar and doughy cookies. Flavors are more of the same but is balanced nicely by the spices and yeast. Pours a dark orange/ruby color with a frothy off-white head that leaves some lacing. Full-bodied and the alcohol definitely makes its presence known but is not overpowering and gives just enough warmth and bite on the finish. A big beer that is very well done.

9er (85) - Maryland, USA - JUN 11, 2015
Nice malty taste and rasiny sugarcane aroma. The semi-sweet brew is full of well done spicy and warming alcohol. This very nice concoction is apt for a mature palate. Lovely velvet texture and carbonation.

Syfher (194) - Brussels, BELGIUM - DEC 29, 2014
Bottle of 75cl, in a Trappist glass; from the fridge. Good Christmal ale, with a great spiced aroma, beautiful appearance and marvelous taste of spices and yeast (a little bit like the Trappist one). Cloudy and a little bit sticky palate. Go try it !

thepeter (325) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 27, 2014
pours chestnut brown, small white head. Aroma of spices, cinnamon, clove nutmeg all spice. Similar tastes with roasted nuts, molasses and boozy at the end, VERY sweet. Too sweet in my opinion. Medium to full bodied needed to let the carbonation settle a bit but was fine after a while. Overall just too sweet and boozy.

A Scaldis Noël nevű főzethez, jelen sörital alap verziójához korábban már volt szerencsém, ebben az esetben az ízélmény utóerjesztés biztosította fokozásának megvalósulását van lehetőségünk megvizsgálni. Az mindenesetre már biztosra vehető, hogy a tapasztalatok aggodalomra semmi okot nem adnak, s hogy bizakodásunk igazolást nyerjen, elsőként a jól ismert szivárványos aromafelhőkről leszakadt puha illatpamacsok érkezése simítja el a talajt a további élményeknek. Parfümös, likőrben ázó aszalványos nyalábok keringenek a levegőben, majd a mézben eltett befőttekhez hasonlatos jegyeket produkáló, elegánsan karcsú, élénken vibráló test terül el az ízlelés terepén. Sárga húsú gyümölcsök közepesre aszalt karaktere, édes gabonák emléke és cifra élesztő éle teszi mintaszerű belga specialitássá a szerkezetet, amely egy karácsonyi ital képének minden tekintetben maradéktalanul megfelel, a palackban történő utóerjedés adta sajátosságok pedig ha kifejtik is hatásukat, leginkább csak jótékony sejtelmességgel teszik azt.
