On tap at na 7.schode, Zilina. Pours is cloudy orange with medium to big white head. Aroma of spices, malts, lot of coriander, lemon peel, black pepper, yeast. Solid malty base, light sweet, hints of bittery, citrusy fresh mouthfeel. Medium body, lively carbonation, oily texture. Pretty surprising, fresh beer.

Pours hazy orange-golden with a creamy white head. Sweet aroma of orange and flowers with hints of spices. Very well-ballanced taste with a spicy and slightly bitter aftertaste. I would certainly recommend this one.

TimE (4547) - Tokyo, JAPAN - DEC 15, 2015
Big frothy white head. Golden color. Very hoppy nose with tons of herbs and spices with lots of orange peel and soapiness. The mouth is medium body with decent hoppiness. Full bodied. Dry with lingering bitter with herbs just lingering and lingering. One of my favorite Belgian beers for a long time.

DraftDodger (726) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 12, 2015
Amsterdam 12/12 2015. 75 cl bottle from local supermarket. Fat little Christmas Elf looking for Rudolph the Reindeers footprints on the label. Pours slightly hazy yellow with very big head. Substantial lacing. Settles as 1 cm thick layer of foam. Aroma is sweet with some spice - black pepper freshly grinded - and caramel. Medium carbonation and slightly thick palate. Taste follows the nose - more or less. Not as sweet as it smells and with a sharp spicy edge. Notes of alcohol. A fine Belgian but it did dissapoint a little bit due to the hype around this Christmas Elf.

Had this for the first time in a small pub in Brussels in 2012. Got a bottle at home three years later and it’s still magnificent. Aroma of caramel, herbs, wheat and typical Belgian yeast. Pours a small white head on top of a deep orange-golden body and the looks aren’t promising too much. It’s delicious, with subtle hints of coriander in the finish. Starts out with creamy wheat, finishes with just the right amount of hoppy sweetness, the alcohol almost unnoticeable. Smooth palate, creamy texture and long pleasant finish. It’s subtle, pleasant and will keep you warm even on cold, foggy days in Brussels. After the Triple van De Garre, this is my favourite Belgian beer.
