4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle at Bagers - on christmas evening - shared with Mette, Bager, Per & Farmand. Cloudy red/brown - white head. What a lovely beer.... the winecasks helps the Bush de Nöel very much.... it turns it from way too sweet, to nice balanced and very complex. Soapy, citric, wood, nutty, light sourish (the good way), light sweetness, nice hoppy, dark fruits, fruity, caramel.... and so on.. very nice - lovely complexity.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
750 shared by Marcus and I at Delerium. Bottle is 2008 Cuvee Special. Pours a dark amber with a decent beige head. Aroma has notes of oak and apple. Sour notes. Body is full and carbonation is fairly strong. Flavor is dark malt, and somewhat plummy sour. Malt is present to offset the sour. Becomes a bit vinous. Sour disappears with time. Changes. Goes really smooth in less than half an hour. Great beer.

Bottle. Poured a hazy brown with a large frothy light brown head that was fully lasting with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy complex spice, fruit, yeast and alcohol aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture with soft carbonation. Moderate yeasty sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate to long duration. Very well done.

UPDATED: DEC 16, 2012 Sampled at OBER Kerstbierfestival 2012. A bit unclear amber colored brew, virtually no head. Smell and taste malts, lots of alcohol, some sourness, spicy as well. Pretty sharp and spicy. Fizzy carbonation, medium body. Not my thing.

Bottle, bought @ Ølbutikken, Cph.
Enjoyed to the Aab - Deportivo match.
Pours almost completely red with a slight haze to it. Head is small, rather fizzy with low duration. Tarty aroma with grapes, wood, brett, prunes, vanilla, blackberries. Medium carbonation, superb creamy and oily mouthfeel. Flavour is vinious, no doubt about that, but it seems incredibly balanced. Sweet caramel malts with prunes, plums and raisins mix wonderfully well with grapes and light red whine notes. Some brett-like tartness and dryness as well. Truly incredibly balanced.
