3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
33 cL bottle. Pours orange with white head. Strange smell, sour and very little hops - it must be yeast. Reminds me a bit about champagne. Taste i sweet-sour. It changes much with the temp. initial colder beer had manu dark notes (unusual dark given the colour) which goes into more bitter-sour light notes as the beer warms up. Bitter and dry aftertaste. Not bad but not very christmassy

Bottled. Nutbrown colour, small white head. Aroma is yeast, cartboard. berries and some hops. Flavour is nuts. fruits and slight yeast. Also slight alcohol to be notes. Quite a watery brew for being 7%. No winterwarmer... nor that much Christmas in it...

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sampled draught at Akkurat, Stockholm, Sweden.
Amber coloured, hazy. Big flowery, hoppy aroma. Sweet and light bodied with sparkling mouthfeel and good hop presence throughout with notes of honey. Salty, bitter finish. A very pleasant ale that runs down dangerously easy.

On tap somwhere! Cloudy amber beer, thick white head. Fairly dry palate but soft as well. Light dry malt, well balanced with a little sour fruit. Overall a sour creamy malt beer. Drinkable though.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A: Golden color with a fluffy white head that settles quickly to leave slight lacing.
Fresh hops aroma with wildflowers, grass and mixed spices.
Flavor starts with spice and progresses to bitterness in the middle and finish.
Definitely a top Christmas beer, unusual for its hoppiness and lack of sweetness.
