3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330 ml bottle. Good looking amber body with a decent beige head. Aroma is malt and caramel, a bit plain but pleasant. Flavor is slightly roasted malt with caramel and an acceptable bitterness, still rather straight forward but quite enjoyable. Body is medium and if you forget about the Christmas expectations it’s actually a pretty decent lager.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can at home. Has a slightly hazy deep reddish brown colour with a medium beige head. Dried fruit in the aroma with oak, leather and some cocoa, cinnamon and dark berries. Nice and feels very belgian. The flavour is more careful but pretty much of the same with mainly leather and dried fruit. A bit thin and slick mouthfeel, and a light bitterness. This is Christmas beer is actually pretty nice, but not rich enough in the mouth. Fascinating belgian-like and complex for being a lighter Christmas beer.
