This special beer is rich in density and hop. It will warm up the body and spirit in the end-of-year holiday season.

Ethereal (2421) - Los Angeles, California, USA - DEC 31, 2009
650ml bottle from the Christmas market in Lille, 13th Dec 09. Golden blonde, perfectly clear, lively, with a big white persistent head. Dusty hops and alcohol on the nose. Balanced taste with a nice orange element. Could do with more complexity and weight but overall a good beer and washed down the turkey dinner nicely.

Bottled, 0.7 liter, BB '97 (> 8 years old). Hazy orange coloured, small but lasting head. Sweet and hoppy aroma, some cork. Obvious "age-sensation", notes of port. Watery palate. I've never had a fresh bottle, but i guess aging really benefits this one.

Trionfo di prugne nell’aroma e nel sapore, questa birra di Natale di Castelain volevo conservarla per il 25 dicembre, ma essendo arrivato a 599 volevo fare 600 senza assaggiare niente di troppo pretenzioso o troppo grande; 65cl di Ch’Ti mi sembrano l’ideale. Solito fruttivendolo di via Maddalena. Questa è la tipica birra che mi stufa un poco, con le sue note estremamente dolci che non vengono smorzate dal finale un po’ secco tipico delle bières de garde (e a cui mi sto abituando siccome ne sto bevendo tantissime).

Dixen (1465) - Flagstaff, Arizona, USA - JUL 27, 2005
Sweet and yeasty nose, some spices. Golden colored body, small white head. Flavor of sweetness and yeast.

onystrom (1333) - Magellan Hunter! - Skanderborg, DENMARK - DEC 21, 2011
Clear golden color with fine head. SOmewhat soapy and perfumed but not that bad.

bjakk (718) - Skagafjordur, ICELAND - DEC 1, 2013
Golden with floating corns but white good foam. Mild thick aroma apples. Taste is light fruit, alcohol, light bitter aftertaste that gets magnifired

psilosophy (680) - vitry en artois, FRANCE - NOV 28, 2010
Bouteille de 65cl. Couleur dorée, mousse plutôt faible qui ne tient pas longtemps. Arômes de fruits et d’épices, un peu légère en carbonation. Au moment ou je l’ai dégustée, je l’ai trouvée encore un peu jeune. Trouvée à huit à huit - Vitry en Artois.
