COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
On the palate this silky smooth ale is predominantly malty, with smoky, spicy and citrusy notes, and a long, lingering finish that is lightly tart and malty.

Editor’s note: Sold as both Corsendonk Christmas Ale and as King’s Blue in Norway.

Bottle. Brown beer with a biege head. Sweet candy malt and some fruit aroma. Dark fruit flavor that’s yeasty with some malt backing. Finishes dry. Well balanced and easy to drink. Masks alcohol well.

aspidites (1272) - manteca, California, USA - MAR 7, 2005
Very clean and balance brune. Lite mouthfeel some woody and bread notes with toasted almonds and raisins. Not near one of the best Belgian Christmas beers. Just average.

Very dark red, amber color.Spices, licorice, toffee, sweetness, caramel in aroma, very rich. Little beige head. Licorice, chocolate, caramel, lasting sweet chocolate in aftertaste. Mild alcohol in aroma and flavor. Somehow short ending, still excellent brew!

Ruby with a lasting beige head. Great aroma, some banana notes, caramel, spices. Sweetish yet balanced flavour. Banana showing up again, with toffee, plums and spices. Little bit thinner than i was hoping for in body, but still a really tasty beer.

cphbeerking (154) - København K, DENMARK - JAN 29, 2005
A flavorful, somewhat typical warming Belgian with a healthy dose of brown sugar (or so it feels). Tasty, but not morish in the vein of real top Belgians. Still, I enjoyed it and will be back for more.

Had this on Christsmas day 2004. This one packs quite a punch with the warming alcohol coming through quite nicely. A great beer for the season. The flavor is definately on the malty side with medium spiciness.

Thanks Doug Shoemaker for an extra from your Esprit order. Easy drink, hard to believe its 8.5%. Foamy initial pour. Lots of malt and some sugar.

skbohler (3) - USA - JAN 16, 2005 does not count
Pours a nice brown amber with good lace. Citrus and spice mixed with malty palate. Spicy hop finish. Faiint notes of smoke and nuts and raisins. A bit weak on the mouth-feel in my opinion. Had it last year and remembered that I’m usually unimpressed with it compared to Corsendon’s standard pale and brown ales.
