Rulles nous présente ses meilleurs vœux à 7,3 % abv … Oui, c’est très gentil, mais un peu juste... Et c’est ce qui m’a retardé à déguster cette bière. On le fait donc aujourd’hui ensemble. Dans la composition plusieurs malts et plusieurs houblons : c’est déjà mieux. Couleur brun roux de candi (Il y a plusieurs sucres aussi). Clarté nette. Bulles fines partout mais peu nombreuses . Mousse beige crémeuse avec une belle texture et des bulles d’air en surface. Arômes de pain complet, réglisse, candi, farine d’avoine, beurre baratté. 1ère bouche à la texture soyeuse sur une belle entrée maltée, avec des épices fines et une amertume noble. Arrière-bouche très équilibrée, stable et pourtant de caractère. 2ème bouche où le velouté se développe, les épices s’avancent mais très jolies et fines. 3ème bouche complexe sur du malt, houblon et levure. Grand ensemble et malgré tout très frais. La longueur est toujours très pleine, complète, avec plein d’aspects olfactifs et gustatifs. La levure est douce, salée, poivrée, fine. L’alcool (les « fameux » 7,3!!!) est correct pour ce niveau plus que modeste, et soutient le propos du mieux qu’il peut... mais il a 75 cl pour le faire (ça aide!!!). La finale est bien nuancée, encore supérieure au reste. Conclusion : une spéciale Noël et Nouvel An, qui se révèle une très grande bière à l’équilibre fort, et pourtant au caractère amer prononcé. La finale prend du large, et la contenance de 75 contribue à une ambiance superbe. (Seule erreur pour ce type d’embouteillage : une capsule !!! Quel dommage, mais ceci n’intervient en rien dans la dégustation présente.)

drpimento (2293) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 6, 2011
Very good beer and recommended by the bartender. Poured with a light tan, foamy, frothy head that lasted a while and good lacing. Color was a hazy, almost cloudy brown with red highlights. Aroma was perfumey, malt, roast, caramel, yeast, a little dark ripe fruit. Flavor was very similar to nose, plus some toffee and just enough tang. Body was good and carbonation fine. Finished with average length, smooth, and drinkable. Nice.

Draft at the Birch. Deep reddish orange. Nice poofy head. Spicy aroma, enticing indeed. Wow this is delicious. Orange zest, brown sugar, perfume ... And then a mellow, neutral finish. Excellent. (#4370, 11/26/2011)

Mortlach (1005) - Rome, ITALY - MAR 13, 2012
14/08/2011 Birrifugio Trastevere (tap). Bevuta al Birrifugio con Pippi. Bellissimo color bruno, rovere intenso, miele di castagno, abbastanza densa, bel cappello di schiuma bianco sporca, morbida e molto persistente. Aroma intenso di malti, frutta, lieviti, una punta di luppolo. In bocca è dolciastra, caramellata, con note di cioccolato, complessa, con un bel finale amaro e speziato. Corpo medio, carbonazione soft. Eleganza e bevibilità. Notevolissima a dispetto della gradazione alcolica bassa. Una signora birra!

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."

Chudwick (2207) - Cincyucky, Kentucky, USA - SEP 9, 2013
75cl bottle - pours amber/brown with khaki head and decent lacing. Nose is earthy, dusty, caramel and festive - I’m transported to family warmth contrasted with economic modesty during the winter months. Flavor adds metal, brown sugar and a hint of nuttiness. quite sweet, but a tad spicy. warming. I would like this more if the palate was thicker.

Floback (527) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - OCT 20, 2013
Bottle from Total Wine. Massive off-white head over a red-tinted, light brown body. Puffy lacing. Aroma notes of bubblegum, biscuit, and caramel. Flavors of cola, more caramel, subtle coffee, subtle horse blanket. Soft carbonation and medium/full body. Super smooth and velvety mouthfeel. Delicious and highly drinkable. Very well done.

Claves77 (155) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 22, 2014
Deep brown color. Thin brown, while lace. Excellent texture. Strong roast smell, like double, slight chocolate nose. A bit weak, but good body, bold flavor, excellent finish.
