Pours a dark, murky brown with lots of sediment. Very light head. Aroma is very bready Thought it was a "christmas" ale ("noel") but not as spicy as Id expected. Other than that, pretty good example of a belgium ale. Malty, yeasty, high abv is slightly noticeable.

Juelze (1141) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 17, 2006
Pours a nice ruby color with thick head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is belgian yeast, fruit with a bit of spice. The taste is very light and fruity and very enjoyable. The alcohol is very well masked. This is a very good BSA and I would definitely buy this again.

SHIG (3832) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - DEC 16, 2006
Bottle: Pored an amberish brown with a off white head. Spicy fruit aroma with a melow ton of hops. Bitter at first but developed into a burnt spicy after taste.

I had this beer at a bevmo tasting in Laguna Niguel, California. I think that the pink elephants on the bottle are cool I thought it was a smooth and fruity beer and enjoyed it.

Whole Foods Bottle 2006. Pours a caramel color thats a bit hazy. has an off-white head, lasted for a while. not an extremely aromatic beer, but has a fruity scent with mostly apple and a bit of cinnamon. has a strong alcohol finish with a skightly sour after taste. definately worth a try.

marcus (7142) - Sacramento, California, USA - DEC 13, 2006
2003 75cl bottle. This amber ale poured with a decent off-white head, eliciting a strong fruity aroma. The flavor, too, is fruity with a caramel malt base and some spicy enhancements. There is an astringent alcohol finish.

Quite light color. Alcohol, caramel and spicyness are the main elements, but the alcohol is far too obvious. Could benefit from prolonged storage?

A real nice beer! Nicely fruity, with an alcoholic and spicy component. Like brandy-soaked fruitcake, glazed with molasses and caramel syrup. Probably better than that actually, as Ive never had a fruitcake I liked, but i did like this beer. Easy semi-sweet finish.
