Copper brown, small white head. Malty, grassy nose. Caramelly, grassy hoppy and sweetish. Not very Christmasy. Like a combination of typical bière de garde and a bock.

Bottle. [thank you, Yespr]
Pours a light orange with a pretty, creamy off-white head. Aroma is sweet, caramel and lightly fruity. A little thin mouthfeel perhaps. Flavour is nice, lightly vinious and some malty sweetness. There are notes of tartness as well balncing nicely with the sweet graininess.
