On tap at Moose. Reddish brownish. A bit watery for an X-mas beer. Maybe a bit of ambiguous x-mas spices in the background somewhere. Not a good beer. Not bad, I guess.

Une bonne surprise, pas trop de sucre et d’épice, ça se boit bien à la pression.

Lubiere (9428) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 9, 2014
A deep reddish brown ale with a thin mocha head. In aroma, sweet fruity caramel malt with light curacao, herbaceous, OK. In mouth, a rather sweet fruity malt with light licorice, thin bodied, boring and a bit off. On tap at a small café in Arrays, France.

Calisky (234) - Strasbourg, FRANCE - JAN 4, 2014
Belle couleur sombre ambrée. Nez malté. Bonne carbonation. Gout tres epicé, malté et pain d’épice, note de caramel. Fin rapide et legere.

Bottle at a tasting event. From notes. Spicy yeast and a little caramel. Nothing too special here, kinda blah.

freretoc (441) - Besançon, FRANCE - DEC 13, 2013
Bu à la pression en 25cl, une bière de Noël sympa qui ne paie pas de mine, son intérêt c’est qu’elle n’est pas sur épicé et encore moins avec du réglisse

Marcius (142) - Geneva, SWITZERLAND - DEC 13, 2013
Appearance with amber color (dark), medium cloudy liquid and medium head of cream. Sweet Aroma of red fruit and wood. On the palate it is sweet, sour (wine) and alcoholic. An excellent Bière de Noël.

UPDATED: JAN 24, 2014 Not very good... too acid... not a good taste at the end... An industrial beer...

Drunk in February in Paris during a snow storm. Vanilla. Prune. Low carb. Slight buttery texture with some chalkiness too. Brown royal oak colour with orange highlights. Medium bodied and smooth. Very nice

Nice Belgian ale, dark brown with almost no head. Aroma is sour and dried fruit. Taste is prunes, caramel, malt. Average....

worldbeertaste (1548) - AUSTRIA - FEB 4, 2013
Dark brown with a red tint and a thin lacy, somewhat lasting, off-white head. Smells of complex malt, caramel, and lots of spices - perfume, peach, nutmeg and dark berries, some light alcohol. Medium oily body with medium carbonation. Tastes of mostly alcohol with some chocolate and caramel malt and light spices in the background. The smell is defiantly better. Dry fruity finish. I enjoyed it with my meal.
