For a holiday beer, the spices in this beer are very muted. Overly chemically sweet. Slick mouthfeel.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle served at 8°. Golden orange with a fizzy, frothy, full lacing, white head. Smells of toasted malt, lime, caramel and some dried fruit. Medium watery body with soft carbonation. Tastes of toasted malt with some dried fruit, caramel but mostly a bitter alcohol liquorish leather taste that finishes with lime and spice. It is drinkable but there is some harshness to everything.

This had a nice dried fruit flavor, reminiscent of prunes. Had on tap at a small bar in Metz, France. Overall nice aroma and taste, with some mild sweetness.

A somewhat too sweet beer with a little foam, but with a good hoppy aroma, Not much christmas over this.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
bottle, kindly delivered by jaghana - merci beaucoup! Clear amber-red colour, mid-sized off-white head. Very spicy nose, lots of spices here. Malty bas, rather sweet and lemonade-like, sticky, with some hop flavours, but mainly perfumy and spicy. Lots of spices that seem rather artificial, very sweet overall character. Nevertheless, not bad.

Bottle from Carrefour St. Denis. Copper colour, small white head. Odd sickly fakeish aroma in the middle of vegetables. Dominated by the aroma that unfortunately turns to meat. Dry as shit. Maltiness, carbonation bite underneath. Very very herbal light. This is crap.
