Braincage1 (147) - Cary, North Carolina, USA - DEC 21, 2009
Bottle. A brown and orange beer with a large off white head. Strong aroma when the beer is opened of hay and yeast but more complex nose of ginger and grapfruit on the pour. Flavor starts interesting... a honeyed sweetness and a barleywine like flavor but it is over pretty quick, instead it gives way to a weird pine sol, battery acid taste that sticks in the corners of your mouth.

Jabah (336) - Winter Park, Florida, USA - MAY 16, 2016
As Noël Des Géants @ 8.5% ABV. Pretty much a triple with some winter spice additions. Very sweet, with fruit/raison flavors, caramel, Belgian yeast, etc. I enjoy trying new Belgians, but the winter seasonals are not really my preferred style. Still a solid brew though regardless.

Not really a Goliath but quite good. Unfiltered and quite good. Smell of spices and good aftertaste.

SlovakSniper (4702) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 2, 2015
As «Noël Des Géants» with my friends Frank and Sue. Une bière ambrée avec une mousse crémeuse à souhait. Des parfums et saveurs épicés bien dosés: cannelle, muscade, touche de gingembre, coriandre, je ne sais plus trop, girofle aussi, peut-être. Belle base maltée à la belge, caramel avec ajout de sucre candi, traces fruitées, raisins comme dans une double. Beau corps souple, effervescence à point, étonnant. Finale riche comme une brioche légèrement épicée. Facile à boire. Une surprise!

Bottle during RBWG. Pours a clear orange with medium off white head. The aroma is yeast and spice. Thin mouth with spice and caramel, decent.

stevoj (3594) - Boise, Idaho, USA - FEB 15, 2015
Exploding bottle, so I only got to sample a bit. Needless to say, lively body and creamy head. Meadow, floral, herbal notes, some golden ale, some Belgian triple. All in all, a tasty brew.

My botttle says Noël des Géants. They say it is the same beer but I wonder given the other ratings. Wonderful aroma rising of a cloudy brown pour with an ample head. Taste is has nice floral notes and sweet with maybe a touch of sour. It’s not real complex, but a nice balance. Slightly warming as it goes down but the flavor fades a little too quickly. Noël des Géants is a very nice Belgium with a perfectly balanced taste.

bkurtz (1018) - PERU - FEB 11, 2015
Pours a clear copper with a creamy head. Has a sweet malt aroma. The taste starts biscuity and finishes a bit astringent. Not so nice.

Silphium (3191) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - FEB 3, 2015
Bottle. Deep murky red-brown-orange body, medium clumping off-white head. Nose of white grape, pear, and sticky, fermented pineapple. Very sweet. Somewhat tart body, phenolic, with fermented light fruits (same as above) and drier biscuity notes. Meh.
