COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
(ik haat B. C.) A Natale, Kerst in fiammingo, siamo tutti più buoni. Anche la nostra Kerst vorrebbe esserlo, ma non riesce a togliersi di dosso l’istinto naturale a far del male. Attenzione, dunque. Schiuma prorompente e cremosa, lo spettro olfattivo è dominato da un violento fruttato che ricorda le mele caramellate ed in secondo piano la pasta reale siciliana. Etilica in bocca, con un attacco morbido subito aggredito da una tagliente freschezza acida. Da abbinare ad una fredda serata invernale.

sonnycheeba (3299) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - APR 15, 2012
Bottle. Pours clear gold with thin, fizzy white head; short retention and spare lacing. Aroma is corn, biscuit and straw malt, lemon, grassy hops, and herbs. Flavor is balanced malt and fresh fruit esters; sweet white wine undertones throughout with a crisp, dry finish. Light body, medium carbonation, and low warmth.

Vinegar92 (61) - Matera, ITALY - JAN 5, 2012
Birra chiara, arancione. Schiuma non persistente. Aroma particolare, dolce.. quasi di legno... Gusto molto dolce, forse troppo. Da bere con calma, da accompagnare con qualche stuzzichino. Il finale riporta molto al miele.

PatBateman81 (178) - Caserta, ITALY - DEC 31, 2011
Bottle 33 cl @ Karhisma Birroteca (Piedimonte Matese, Caserta - Italy). A pale orange colour, with cassock and yellow reflexes. Aroma is the classic belgian (or Extraomnes?) spiced, but not boring and complex since all the components are balanced: cloves, coriander, fresh fruit (pear and peach), alcohol, herbs, liquor. Body is medium to full, and perfectly carbonated. I don’t understand all the ratings that state this beer as too much carbonated, maybe they don’t had it at the right temperature? Mouthfeel is extremely pleasant, loads of sugar, candy fruit, toffee, peach and lemon peel. Finish is moderatly bitter, oriented towards orange and citrus. Very balanced Xmas beer, Extraomnes works well and it’s not a belgian bastard copy.

Pours cloudy amber with a 2 finger white head. Nose is citrus fruits, mostly oranges. Taste is sweet from start to finish with minimal hop bitterness. Super carbonated, crisp and clean. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottled 330ml (PBF, BB 11/2012)
Hazy dark orange color, huge cloudy off-white head. Berryish, a bit spicey aroma. Medium-bodied. Very sweet, berryish flavor with Belgian-.style yeastyness and some burning alcohol (mostly sweetness overrides it). Some peppery notes too.

JorisPPattyn (7773) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAR 12, 2011
Again near-explosively lively beer, totally hazed & yeast in suspension, dark orange under a towering yellow, dense head, very slowly collapsing. Glühwein spices, if mild, and lots of fruit(esters), mainly citrus; and thinned palmhearts of ditto artichokehearts. Sweat, citrus; faint acidity surrounding a serious, if unsweet maltbase. Spiced/yeasty finish, but not specifically Glühwein spices, if clovey indeed. Slick, bit buttery texture, heavy to overcarbonated, spritzy. Breadyeast in the aftertaste. Extratripel, compared to that one. Mille grazie, ragazzi!
