3.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
@ Kerstbierenfestival, Essen 2005. No notes for appearance...?hmmm. Smells woody, sweetish, spicy, and some varnish/hairspray. Tastes flowery, sweetish, bitterish and lightly spicy. Full bodied, silky/soft tasting, not much co2. Rather good.

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Draught at Kerstbierfestival 2005, Essen, Belgium
Light, clear body. Cask wood aroma. Lightly sweet flavour, very watery. Lightly to medium bodied. It appears as they somehow get hold of a good recipe for their regular beers, but can’t manage to create new good beers theirselves.
