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.

Kosmokrator (517) - ITALY - NOV 7, 2012
UPDATED: JAN 5, 2014 Color arancio scuro nebuloso con una schiuma bianca persistente di medio spessore. Aroma con sentori di albicocca, lievito e bucce di agrumi candite; gusto dolce con note di albicocche secche e zucchero di canna, mela cotta e glassa di zucchero verso il finale. Persistenza media, al palato è rotonda, setosa, quasi mielosa. E’ meno corposa dell’atteso e l’abv è ben mascherato: una possibile conseguenza, assieme all’effervescenza debole, dei due anni passati in cantina.

lembeek (143) - ITALY - JUN 14, 2012
Colore ambrato. Schiuma bianca, compatta, persistente. Aroma di malto con sentori di mele, coriandolo, zenzero. In bocca dolce, burrosa, con l’alcol bene mascherato, una buona acidità e un finale secco

MrChopin (3575) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - APR 19, 2012
hazy gold, frothy white head with ample lacing. Nose is dry hay, light tea, bit of sweet earth. Sweet red grape and clay, hay mid with nice caramelized brown sugar finish. Dry end despite sweetness, rich, layered.

BeerandBlues2 (10713) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 15, 2012
Bottle shared by Ryan. Pours hazy orange to amber with a medium, frothy white head, medium retention with good lacing. Aroma is floral and herbal hops, earthy notes, cookie and biscuit malt, perfume and spices with fruity esters. Flavor is fruity and barnyard notes, light malt, light hops and bitterness, and a dry finish. Medium body, warmth, and carbonation.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - APR 15, 2012
33cl bottle, shared by ryan: pours a hazy dark golden with a stringy-lacing white head. Has a sweet biscuity light malty sweetness with some light fruity esters. Starts with pretty good fullness and rich pale malty sweetness with some licorice and clove spice before a slightly warming bready finish. Well-balanced and fairly complex.

GT2 (9272) - San Diego County, California, USA - APR 15, 2012
330mL. Hazy golden pour. Thick buttermilk head. Sweet yellow apple nose with spices and lemon sorbet. Taste is richer with tangy apple pie. Richer abbey Tripel notes with dark cherry and figs. Good stuff. A sweet beer with delicate complexities. Good stuff. Rich, oily palate with a blend of dark fruit and citrus. Amazed. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

sonnycheeba (4197) - 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.

dreadnord (1013) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 25, 2011
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
