(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.

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).

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.

KansaiBeerLvrs (3990) - Kyoto, JAPAN - DEC 26, 2014
12.2% a slightly opaque copper pour with a 1cm head of foam. A quad with a yeasty bready malt nose with some fruity notes that evoke wine. The taste is bready, yeasty, a dash of spice and a lots of malt.

leghorn99 (197) - Livorno, ITALY - NOV 14, 2014
Nel bicchiere è di un nebuloso color arancio; la schiuma è abbondante, fine e cremosa, molto persistente. Naso dolce, ricco di frutta candita (arancio, cedro, pesca), zucchero a velo e, una volta svanita la schiuma, anche frutta sotto spirito; ma chiudendo gli occhi, l’impressione dominante è davvero quella di trovarsi ad annusare un dolce di marzapane. C’è molta frutta anche in bocca, a richiamare quasi in toto l’aroma: dolce, candita, a tratti sciropposa, con brevi intermezzi etilici e di malto biscotto. Birra dal corpo pieno, mediamente carbonata, morbida al palato, caratterizzata da una grande pulizia e da una relativa facilità di bevuta.

33cl bottiglia @ beershop. Extraomnes garanzia di qualità, birra che ricorda tantissimo le strong belghe e non è da meno.

jonnyguns (1104) - AUSTRALIA - JUN 7, 2014
Bottle from mane liquor. Pours a deep amber with no head. Little to no Carbonation. Nose has dried cherries, oak, red wine and candied sugar. Taste is like a syrup mouth feel. Lots sour fruits, cherries and brown sugars. Booze is evident. Might be a fraction old. Couldn't finish this one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
