A lovely winter warmer. On draft at Whole Foods in Omaha, NE. Lovely spice notes and residual candy sweetness, rich Belgian yeast and fruit. Sadly out of bottles but keeping an eye out!

330ml bottle. Aroma is sweet cherry, light malty. Appearance is clear amber with a huge brown-ish head. Taste is light sweet and light bitter. A lively carbonation with a nice warm, light alcoholic after taste. Very lovely.

Beautiful red amber a strong lasting frothy creamy beige foam. Aroma finds soft fruitiness, brown sugar, modest spices, yeast working its magic, touch of sourness. Flavor follows. Pleasant alcohol warmth. Soft. Nice beer to kickoff Christmas day.

MarinEvelyn (597) - Wisconsin, USA - DEC 25, 2014
Light, fairly carbonated, beautiful pour. Interesting mix of spices in the taste. Something a little funky (not in a bad way) that I cant really pick out. Maybe nutmeg. Malty, brown sugar. My nose isnt working very well today so cant note much on aroma, but definitely smell (and taste) some bubblegum.

A delightful Christmas beer. Dark amber pour with an off white foam head. Some minor lacing. Rich flavour of Belgian yeast, dark fruits, caramel, toffee, brown sugar, etc. A nice warming beer!

Misschien wel het lekkerste kerstbier op de markt. Probeer zeker de bieren eens van vorige jaargangen. Wel een zware jongen

SinH4 (274) - SWITZERLAND - DEC 22, 2014
Orange color with small head. Spicy yeasts, sugary, and loooots of carbonation. A little bit of fruits. It?s quite ok, but not too good. It?s got the Belgian sickness.
