erickok (3629) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - DEC 2, 2011
Enormous gushing head, hazy orange body. Fresh yeast, green apple, alcohol, wheat and cloves. Dry taste, light sweet. Heavily carbonated. Nothing like I expect or want a Christmas beer to be. More fresh, crisp and Duvel like. (33cl bottle)

Swaroga (1352) - Brussels, BELGIUM - DEC 1, 2011
33cl bottle. Light yellow/green and hazy. The head is white and amazingly lively. Dont pour this thing without some precautions. Nose : citrus notes, strong cherry esters with this quite original liquor presence. Yeast and caramel. Sip : Oily with a sparlking carbonation. Sweet alcohol filled with fruity ester aromas. Very spicy : pepper, paprika ? some little clove. The alcohol is there but well balanced into the overall taste. One glass yes, but a good one.

Murky blond one with a huge ammount of sediment, big fluffy head. Aroma of yeast, tropical fruits, figs, banana, vanilla that soaked in alcohol. Strong spicy character with coriander, sourish yeast, overmatured fruits, a lot of alcohol. Too mutch alcohol.

Benzai (8360) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUL 22, 2011
Not the most standard Christmasbeer. A light sourness is present especially in the finish. Still a nice beer, very nice taste overall and the alcohol doesnt dominate.

Great smell and taste. Mouthfeel could use a bit more body. Colour is pretty nice. I think this might be the first non-black x-mas beer ive had.
