Winter beer with deep reddish bronze colour and creamy head. Fruity aroma of plums, cherries, raisins, mild spiciness, something woody and something yoghurt-like; sweet maltiness, caramel, candied fruits, refreshened with a slight sourish touch almost reminiscent of an oud bruin. Bit thin finish.

tderoeck (6904) - Gent, BELGIUM - DEC 19, 2012
15/XII/12 - on tap @ Kerstbierenfestival (Essen) - BB: n/a (2012-1363) Thanks to John for sharing the beer!

Clear deep red brown beer, aery off-white head, unstable, non adhesive. Aroma: yeast, spices, something rotten, star anise, cloves, dirty. This smells pretty bad. MF: soft carbon, medium to light body. Taste: rotten fruits, jam, banana peel, yeasty, very unpleasant, completely off. This is really bad. I don’t know what went wrong, but they should have taken this keg out of the system.

sebletitje (8124) - Enghien, BELGIUM - DEC 16, 2012
Tap @ 18de Kerstbierfestival, Essen 2012. Cuivrée/rubis, col fin beige. Arôme est fruité noirs, léger en épice - kruiden - le tout reste assez faiblard. Palais est moyen avec ce relent de fruits noirs, acétone ou alors possible trop d’épices. Profil reste très belge avec dans l’ensemble ce côté typique de malt carapils, dark fruité noir moyen.

Fin (8704) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 29, 2012
On tap at Zythos, Brabanthal, Leuven, Belgium Saturday 28th April 2012 Pours murky brown in colour. Very, very sweet and with the addition of four bottles of port per barrel (so we were told by the man working the stall) this is very port heavy up front, actually throughout. Marginally better than the Grand Cru but again not one to get excited about. A6 A3 T6 P2 Ov11 2.8
