This Belgian Christmas Ale has all the welcoming aroma’s of Christmas and a dark hazy appearance. It has a nice sweet flavor and a lingering aftertaste.

330ml bottle poured in a Leffe chalice. A: Pours a cloudy beige color and a huge white fluffy and "alive" head. A lot o noise. Dissipates slowly leaving many lacings S: Smell is very sweet and yeasty. Mallty too. Very pleasant. A bit spicy. Quite fruity T: Taste is the best part. Sweet upfront. Fruity. Caramel, honey, caramel malts. Earthy yeasts. Delicate bitter aftertaste. Hints of oxidation M: Creamy heavy body. Lots of carbonation. Sweet upfront, bitter aftertaste like a good Belgian should be O: Absolutely good beer. Very drinkable. Belgian to the bone [ BA Review @ 3/8/2012 ]

Een echte aanrader. Alhoewel het een blond bier is, is het een typisch winter bier met een zeer volle smaak

Maakun (686) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAR 10, 2014
Hazy golden with massive white head and lots of yeast in the glass (with still a massive deposit in the bottle). Yeast, lemon, light sweet malts, some spices. Taste is mainly sweet with a hint of yeasty bitterness. Medium to full body, lots of alcohol. Decent, but has more alcohol and sweetness than good taste.

Ins Glas ergießt sich ein minimal trübes goldenes Bier mit schöner Schaumkrone. Geruch sehr malzig süß, alkoholisch, belgische Hefe. Geschmack sehr malzig alkoholisch, fruchtig, würzig

33cl in a Delirium Noel glass. Pours very pale straw with a white head. Very carbonated and just keeps bubbling. Very fruity in taste - almost like Champagne in both taste and finish - quite dry but very good. Not at all Christmassy though. Glad I tried it.

Bottle 33cl. Unclear, yellow beer with a good white head. No special aroma, some hops maybe. Also the rate isn’t that special, mainly alcohol (and) sweetness. The bitter tone sticks longest. Normal carbonation. It’s called a Christmas blond, I would define it as a high alcohol triple or maybe even a quadruple.
