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.

Light amber color, hazy, it pours almost flat, oily, with very small head eventually. Mild aroma of sugar and esters, some alcohol too. Sweet mouthfeel, with a good body strength, but also a bit oily; there are fruity esters, and a quite strong alcohol perception.
Nice beer, but it has too much sugar, it lacks of depth.

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.

Rune (10928) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 30, 2012
330ml bottle, lotto 349-10, bought in March 2012 at Johnny Off License (Via Veio), in Roma and kept in my cellar for drinking pleasure this Christmas. Pours a firm off-white head and a near-clear, amber coloured body. Sediments to the last pour. No lacing. Aroma of dusty hops and fresh, sweet fruits. Earthy malts, dry lemon and overall a candy sweet fruity taste profile softened by spices and partially offset by bittersweet oranges to the finish. Warming and velvety mouthfeel. Mostly integrated alcohol. Nice, however, too sweet for a higher score (Saturday eve at home, Tromsø 29.12.2012).

GT (9982) - Oceanside, 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

JorisPPattyn (9252) - Ursel, 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!
