0.75 bottle. Dark red brown. Dark fruity, plums and raisins,yeast. Dark malts and some spices. Medium bodied, soft dark bready. A bit of hardish hops, not that subtle. A found this a bit bland, was expecting more from an xmas belgian. But quite nice anyway.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
From the 750 ml. bottle. Reddish-brown pour with a modest, short lasting tan head. Big Belgian sweet caramel and candied sugar aroma with a sort of oily note on the nose. The body is medium to full. The taste is highly sweet with a notable bitterness to finish. But the sweetness is what sticks with me

*Old rating, best before Jan 11. The beer has nice herbal aroma, is highly drinkable but grainy. Fresh and round, a bit too alcoholic. Interesting.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Keg at Chez Moeder Lambic Fontainas, Brussels. Dark ruby amber with white head. There is a sweetish, candied sugar, pear drop yeasty character to this at the start, which then develops into a smoothish, strong mild flavour, quite silky on the palate. There is a berry, general fruitiness throughout. Milk chocolate malts. Good beer.
