Shaney (2425) - Köln / Cologne, - NOV 13, 2012
#1401 Hefig-fruchtiges Aroma nach Pfirsich, Aprikose und Zitrone. Im Geschmack malzig-fruchtig. Der wuchtige Alkoholkörper drückt vehement auf die Süffigkeit, eindeutig zu viel des Guten. Der leicht bittere Nachgeschmack wird vom wärmenden Alkohol begleitet. Trinkbar, aber zum Genuß reicht es nicht. Was dieses Bier mit Weihnachten zu tun hat, ist mir gänzlich schleierhaft, denn das ist das Blonde weder von der Farbe noch vom fruchtig-alkoholischen Geschmack her.

StilleStorm (1208) - Stavanger, NORWAY - NOV 8, 2015
DWFADSJT; Bottle 0,33L. Poured hazy golden, with a lot of sediments and a moderate lasting, frothy, off-white head. Nose is moderate to heavy, malt, caramel, rasin, yeast, honey alchol and spice. Taste is heavy sweet and light bitter with a warming, honey, lasting finish. Body is medium to full, texture is oily to creamy, carbonation is avarage. Sweet, warming Christmas delight.

VDuquerroux (818) - Airvault, FRANCE - FEB 3, 2015
Bottle, 33cL. Home. A yellow opaque earthy beer with a medium white head ; medium retention ; yeast sediments. Herbal aroma, dry white wine, alcohol. Medium sweet, light bitter, warming background. Full body, medium texture, average carbonation, sweet warming background. Overall, too much sun for this winter ale ; ok but disappointed.

Icedwarf (916) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - DEC 30, 2014
Helder geel bier met veel schuim. Smaak is verrassend anders dan de meeste kerstbieren, en is bitter hoppig, krachtig en lijkt meer op een goede triple. Na de eerste verrassing moet ik constateren dat dit wel een erg goed bier is waar de smaak lang blijft hangen. Kan me wel voorstellen dat velen dit tereurstellend vinden vanwege de afwijkande smaak.

77ships (6129) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - DEC 25, 2014
330 ml. typical Bon Secours flip-top bottle from Carrefour supermarket. Orange golden, lightly hazy, fizzing away egg-white head which quickly is entirely gone. Looks a bit like cheap sparkling wine. Nose is cheap esters, plastic, fake honey sweet & grain alcohol in typical run of the mill esters & boozy BE style. Taste is odd plastic sweetness, grain alcohol, plastic honey, light rotting egg,… Plastic & thick oily body, not the best. Warms the throat a bit in a cheap hoock kind of way. Lots of odd plastic sweetness that I cannot place, not a fan of these kinds of beers. I’m definitely not a fan of the brewery that makes this kind of swill.

freretoc (1284) - Besançon, FRANCE - DEC 23, 2014
Bue en bouteille de 33cl à la brasserie, couleur blonde, belle mousse effervescence moyenne, une bière avec une attaque abricot poire et fin de bouche sur le pruneau, un peu trop sucré.

Renobob (1333) - Besançon, FRANCE - DEC 23, 2014
Bue en bouteille de 33cl. Blonde forte légèrement sucrée, pas mal équilibrée. Résultat correct pour ce premier essai. On sent à peine trop l'alcool d'après moi.

ruigo (1799) - PORTUGAL - DEC 23, 2014
33cl bottle. Hazy light amber colour with floating yeast particles and fine white head. Yeast, malt, esters, caramel and citrus in the aroma. Average carbonation and medium body. Taste is more on the sweet side with some sour notes. Overall, a nice beer.

TheFoamhead (223) - Vught, NETHERLANDS - DEC 19, 2014
The taste is dominated by a sour taste as you usually get with spontaneous fermented beers. This goes along with a heavy alcohol taste that is somehow contradictory to the medium body of this brew. A light dry hop finish rounds it up. OK, but certainly not my kind of beer due to it’s sour character.
