Ungstrup (28448) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 1, 2008
Bottled at Kerstbierfestival 2007. An unclear orangey beer with a lazing off-white head. The aroma is very spicy with coriander and cloves being most dominant. The flavor is sweet matly with strong notes of spices - again cloves and coriander, but also light notes of alcohol, leading to a dry spicy finish.

thewolf (10783) - Kolding, DENMARK - MAR 11, 2009
Bottle @ ZBF 2009.
Pours hazy yellow with a slight green hue. Nice, staying, frothy white head. Soft carbonation, lightly malty with some sweet spices; ginger and coriander. High carbonation but still a good, frothy mouthfeel. Flavour is great, good malty sweetness, coriander, pepper, ginger and vanilla mixing in well. Very elegant beer.

Christian (10779) - Odense, DENMARK - JUL 30, 2009
hazy yellow with a big and lasting white head. Yeasty aroma with pineapple and other tropical fruits. Yeasty and fruity flavour with a hint of grassy hops in the finish. Very full bodied to the point of being slightly cloying.

Koelschtrinker (9998) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 17, 2011
Kerstbierfestival 2007 Von diesem Bier wurden lediglich 20 hl gebraut. Herber Antrunk, etwas bitter, in Teilen fruchtig. Eingeschränkte Hefigkeit, etwas alkoholische Bitterkeit im Nachgeschmack, kurz vorher steigt die Hopfigkeit stark an und wirkt etwas übertrieben, zuletzt kräuterartig. Test vom 20.12.2007, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 12,8,9,10,-,8 - 8,89

Speciaal eindejaars bottle 2008. Pours a huge head. Blonde. Flowery citric aroma with hints of cream. Firm flowery hopbitter flavor with hints of citrus, coreander and vanilla. A pleasant and tasty beer.

JorisPPattyn (7716) - 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.
