TheCrowsNest (76) - Redondo Beach, California, USA - NOV 30, 2012
Muddy brown with a healthy beige head. Aromas of caramel, apples, chocolate, tart cherries, great complexity. There’s a light touch of anise hidden in flavors of cherries and plums. Medium body with good carbonation. Classic Belgian Christmas ale. Roughly translates to "Cuvée Rulles Best Wishes."

EddyBeer1 (1021) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAR 21, 2015
Brune légèrement rougeâtre, effervescence faible, col beige moyen et crémeux. Principalement maltée, un peu rôtie, légèrement torréfiée => un rien de moka, légèrement fruitée (fruits rouges), un peu trop aqueuse.

Douberd (3011) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - FEB 24, 2015
(La Rulles Cuvée Meilleurs Voeux) Bottle 750 ml at home, served into a tulip glass, ABV 7.3% Dark brown colour on the body that turns to a beuatiful red ruby when hold against the light. Tiny oieces floating around in it. Tall and thick head, tan in colour, with very good retention, leaving heavy lacing on the glass. Vinous aroma along with caramel, light toffee and red fruits. Nice taste, fruity, mostly red fruits, but also light grapes, agian some vinous notes, caramel, faint roasted caracter that becomes much stronger on the finish, leaving a heavy ashy touch. Medium thin body, carbonation walks towards the light side, quite dry on the palate. Very good, sipper, and it costs less than 5 euros for a big bottle, what else to ask.

lello4ever (204) - ITALY - FEB 13, 2015
Birra belga invernale dal colore marrone con tendenza al rossastro e una schiuma piuttosto cremosa, si sentono subito le spezie e il malto tostato, oltre a un tocco di frutta. 7% ma si beve facilmente anche per il suo piacevole equilibrio, non essendo troppo complessa.

sonotono (74) - torino, ITALY - FEB 13, 2015
Bel colore marrone con sfumature rossastre, bella schiuma compatta e persistente; aroma fruttato e speziato, caramellato e un pizzico di erbaceo. Sapore caramellato, speziato, ottimamente bilanciato dall’amaro del luppolo e un tocco di tostato. Ottimo equilibrio di sapori.

erickok (4095) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - FEB 7, 2015
Dark amber body, oily looks. Interesting spice, earthy type aroma. Not as sweet as expected, more of an English feel to it. Bière de Garde style fermentation. Interesting brew, original and quite nice too. Not so alcoholic. (75cl bottle from Saveur Bière, shared with Darren)
