mcberko (5941) - 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.

Questa birra terribilmente insaporita alla cannella e ai biscotti allo zenzero. al primo sorso buona al secondo ha gi stufato. ebbasta non 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. Theres a hint of chocolate. Yum

chrisv10 (10755) - DENMARK - APR 1, 2010
33 cl bottle. Not sure if I got a bad version of this but it was close to undrinkable. Hazy yellow body with white head. Flavour is malt and cleaning detergents.

Borresteijn (4543) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - NOV 15, 2009
Bottled at 3rd Brugs BF. Hazy golden yellow, white head. Aroma of speculoos and typical Belgian blond ale notes with some coriander. Flavour is sweet, speculoos, light fruity, bit malty. Soft mouthfeel. Nice for a few sips, then becomes cloying.

CapFlu (4461) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 27, 2009
(Bottle) Sampled at GCBF 2009 in Victoria on September 9, 2009. Grossly overpowered with cloves and ginger. I was expecting cookie dough but this was much more a ginger cookie. 7/3/4/2/11

mgermani (1000) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 27, 2009
Pours a surprisingly pale golden colour and an unremarkable thin line of foam. A pleasant sweet aroma, nothing jumping out. Very pleasant taste cold, but as it warms the spices become more prominent until unbearably so - cinnamon, nutmeg, mace, perhaps? Decent carbonation, thin slightly creamy body. This is best COLD so as to temper the over-spicing and sweetness.

sebletitje (6582) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JUN 29, 2009
Bottle from Beer Planet, Brussels. Cant claim to have been to Belgium w/o trying our famous Speculoos cookies. pours a hazy golden, thick white head. Aroma was overly yeasty, with candi sugar, cookie dough, some light citrus scent, and a typical nose that was reminescent of speculoos cookie. Taste, candi sugar, malty, cookie/bready, some honey like sweetness, finish with a light bittersweet palate. Lots of floating sediments. Could be better if the yeast just wasnt too overwhelming.
