Bottle @ Kerstbier Fest, Essen. Poured with large ice cream head, unfiltered golden color. Lovely nose of banana, bubble gum, spice. Smooth, creamy texture, with flavors of fruit, spice & hop bitterness, dry finish. My favorite at the festival. Very unexpected. Would love to get this one in the US.

Bottled@Kerstbierfestival, Essen. Hazy yellow colour, small white head. Aroma is cellar, fruits and yeast along with some mild earthy and woodenness. Flavour is the same in a perfect balance.

thebeertourist (4819) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 18, 2007
From bottle at 13e Kerstbierfestival, Essen. Frothy white head-hazy pale golden colour. Rich spicy fruity nose. Flavoursstart out sweet, but quickly balanced by refreshing bitterness. a decent saison, quite spicy, ending very dry, but highly drinkable, nonetheless.

sayravai (4674) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 18, 2007
(Bottled@Kerstbierfestival 2007, Essen) Very hazy golden with a large, foamy head. Sweetish, pale-malty aroma with fresh, flowery hops. Lemony-flowery-hoppy, quite malty flavor with a dry, bitter finish. Medium to full-bodied, bitter and still refreshing palate with some acidity. A very nice, balanced, refreshing and quite full-bodied saison.

SHIG (3587) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - DEC 17, 2007
Bottle Kerstbierfestival 2007: Poured a hazy golden blonde with a white head. The aroma was fruit citrus and yeast. The taste is hoppy metallic with nice bitter splash to the tastebuds, there is also that citrus presence.

This was probably my favorite offering at the Kerstbierfestival. Bottle pours hazy gold with a huge, white, pillowy head and classic lacing. Looks gorgeous. The nose is grainy and yeasty, with grassy hops and fruit--tangerines or some other citrus. Wow. Tastes quite hoppy-bitter, and again with the citrus, like nectarine or tangerine or some other ’rine. High carbonation. Dry finish and bitter aftertaste. Really enjoyable.

Bart (2940) - Brussels, BELGIUM - DEC 16, 2007
Hazy blond coloured ber with a lots of carbonation and a large white head. Very herby, malty aroma. Full herby palate with some fizzy mouthfeel. Finish is bitter herby/Spicy, some light dry alcoholic touch. Lond ending, not bad.

JorisPPattyn (7926) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - DEC 16, 2007
Good whipped egg-white head, very muddy beer with a greenish bathtube shine. Spicy nose, but all the spices blending well together, so as none comes out. Maybe a bit citrus & juniper berry. Sweet-sourish taste, hint at coriander and citrus. Soupy, perfumey, coming on stronger warming up. Rather creamy MF but alleviated by a very present carbonation. Medium bodied. Please, Jef, go easy on the spices. An excellent beer doesn’t need to impose itself.
