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, 25cL. Home. A clear brown beer with a big off-white head ; good retention. Citrusy aroma, limonade, herbs, alcohol.Light to medium sweet, light bitter, sour note, a bit dry. Average body, light silky texture, sticky, ephemeral sweet finish. Overall, where is Christmas spirit ? A bit lost.

~Older bottle. Somewhat stale aroma, papery. Staleness goes away with time. Bready malt with caramel, prune, dark cherry and plenty of spicy notes ~Pours amberish brown color with lasting fluffy brownish head. ~Sweet yet refreshing fruity prune/raisin flavor with bread and light spiciness. Very well balanced. ~Medium light bodied with medium high CO2, soft bubbles, smooth and creamy, Bready sweet finish and a spice that lingers. ~My first impression wasn’t great, but as it aired out this turned out to be pretty excellent. I think I would like it even better with out the lingering spicy bitterness. Complex enough to be interesting and very easy to drink.

UPDATED: JAN 20, 2015 Nice looking dark brown color, small off-white head. Lots and lots of caramel, some brown sugar, berries. Taste is more sugary, raisins and caramel. Thin to medium body, average carbonation, a bit creamy. Good one.

Smells like German black bread. Pumpernickel if I’m not mistaken. Definitely lots of spices. Alcohol quite noticeable.

Bière qui à le mérite d’avoir un goût particulier avec une épice non identifié. Malt présent.

Bottle. Piurs cloudy coffee brown with stable light tan head. Clear aroma of malt, caramel, fruit and yeast, with notes of cinnamon and hops. Sweetish flavour of caramel malt and fruit, with estery hints and bitter notes of hops. Touches of spice. Warming alcohol presence. Bitter aftertastebwith sweetish notes. Decent, indeed.
