JohnnyJ (4872) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 19, 2011
Bottle purchased at Delirium Cafe, Brussels. Pours a clear gold/orange, off-white head. Sweet malts, doughy, cinnamon, and lots of spice. As much as I don’t like sweet beers, I actually liked this one, I thought it did what it was supposed to do.

Enjoyit (3583) - Vadum, DENMARK - JAN 16, 2011
Unclear amber of color with a nice foamy head. An aroma of spice, cinnamon, sweets, dry and danish christmas cokies. A flavor of sweets, caramel, spice, cinnamon and weak bitter finish.

Abio (1770) - Waasland, BELGIUM - JAN 13, 2011
What to expect from a beer with this name... It pours out golden, light orange with a medium head that should hold a bit longer, but sticks ok to the glass. Smell is totally not cookies for me... Really spiced, hoppy smell. Smells like a lot of winterbeers. The taste is sweet, totally outbalanced, and weird. A lot of spices, but to call it "speculoos", I really have to say no. Weird beer, not my style.

Sweet beer! Very sweet beer! Light palate. Some floral notes and a subtle but pervading ginger. Well joined up - a grower!

Allara (148) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 10, 2011
33cl bottle from Beer Planet in Brussels. TONS of carbonation, and lots of yeast particulate visible. Sweet notes in the aroma and palate. Nice tan color with notes of sweet spice. Really tasted like a sugar cookie. Different beer and enjoyable. However, you really wouldn’t want to drink more than one.

mcberko (9219) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 25, 2010
330mL bottle, pours a cloudy golden with a monstrous white head. Aroma of cookie, yeast, and various christmas spices (nutmeg, cinnamon). The cookies flavour stands out the most in flavour, with the spices (especially cinnamon) toning it toward the end and on the finish. Decent attempt here.

marcot (770) - Campomorone, ITALY - JUL 28, 2010
Premesso che sono sbronzo. Bevuta al big ben di Sampierdarena dal bicchiere di Corkscrew, siam venuti qua perchč doveva esserci la blonde hop e non c’era... ma va bč. Questa birra č terribilmente insaporita alla cannella e ai biscotti allo zenzero. al primo sorso č buona al secondo ha giŕ stufato. ebbasta non č mica natale

Bottle at Cambrinus in Bruges. Pours dark gold with a white head. Smells like gingerbread. Medium body with foamy carbonation. It is heavily ginger. There’s a hint of chocolate. Yum
