Underbart skum som ligger kvar. Mörk röd i färg och lite söt och peppig i näsan. Lite marsipan och halm i smak.

Bière brune foncée avec des reflets rubis, bon col de mousse qui se tient. Nez de caramel, d’alcool et d’épices (réglisse). Bouche sur le malt et les épices, toujours réglisse. Alccol fort présent, sucrée, peu amère, forte carbonation. Une bonne bière de noêl dans le pur style belge.

TET (1685) - FINLAND - JAN 26, 2014
A dark brown beer with a big, creamy and beige head. The nose is dark fruity, plums, spices, simple. Taste is smooth and dark fruity, quite strong spicyness that gives the more interest. Medium bodied, high and smooth carbonation. Very simple beer, but quite tastefull, anyway.

Pours a very dark red/amber with slight head. Aroma is caramel, some smoke, malts and herbs. Body is sweet caramel, strong in alcohol but t doesn’t overpower the taste. Finish is more caramel, but with a shorter tail. A well balanced and quite tasty belgian, christmas ale.
