COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: “…rør blot ikke ved min gamle jul..” sådan hører vi hvert år, Bo Bendixen synge fra “Sikke en voldsom trængsel og alarm” Sådan er det også med juleøllet. Det har sin plads blandt mange andre tradtioner. Juleøllet har alle dage været kraftigere øl end hverdagsøllet – Hornbeer Juleøl er ingen undtagelse. Den holder sine 7½ pct. Vi har i år valgt at brygge vores juleøl efter belgisk forbillede. Der er anvendt gær fra belgisk trappistøl, og der er krydret ganske lidt. Der er smag er frugter, karamel og jul. Vi tillader os at citere Carsten Bertelsen fra bogen 24 juleøl. “Juleøl skal tages alvorligt, ellers ka’ det være det samme. For så kan vi lige så godt drikke den øl, som vi plejer i hverdagen. Vore forfædre indviede det godt indbryggede og krydrede juleøl med højtid, så derfor må velsmag og godt håndværk – i det mindste – være vor tids offer til guderne” Vi er helt enige i synspunktet: stå vagt om en god tradition, nemlig den gode juleøl.

Ungstrup (29486) - Citizen of the universe, - NOV 7, 2010
Draft. An unclear brown beer with a thin beige head. The aroma has notes of hops, malt, and caramel, as well as lighter notes of smoke. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, caramel, and smoke, leading to a dry, bitter finish. A nice beer - but christmas? more like the burning of the christmas tree tradition that exists in some countries.

Cloudy brown beer. Little tan head. Crisp semi dry palate, turning softer. Sweet red fruits - somewhat fruits of the forest like. Over the top is creamy malt with a light smoky streak. Finishes minerally and dry.

yngwie (13809) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 14, 2011
Bottle. Unclear, reddish dark brown beer with a beige head of moderate size. Cardamom, clove hints and dried fruits on the nose. Some caramel too. The flavor is a bit dull, sweet, yet quite dry, with caramel, spices and dried fruits. Medium to full body, caramel, roasted malts and spice notes in the finish. Not a Christmas beer in my style. 110614

sebletitje (6819) - Enghien, BELGIUM - APR 23, 2011
Bottle 50cl @ Hoppy Loft, Brussels. Je ne savais pas trop à quoi m’attendre avec cette bière. En effet, une très bonne surprise; Bière de style belge allant vers une trappiste légère. Couleur cuivre clair, col blanc. Arôme malt biscuité, fruité allant vers la prune, figue et cassis. Une trace de malt fumé peut être à noter ainsi que levure belge et sucre brun. Garde définitivement ce profile belge frôlent l’ester. Une bière qui a les caractéristiques d’une bonne trappiste, un peu plus légère.
