Dogbrick (9109) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 2, 2011
Pours a dark amber-gold color with a medium somewhat fizzy white head that evaporates steadily to a film. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of caramel, musty malt and fruit. Light body with a sweet syrupy mouthfeel and flavors of caramel malt, citrus and a hint of hops. The finish is short and malty. Guess I shouldn’t approach a beer with certain style expectations due to a holiday label but this beer is pretty forgettable regardless of the season.

Rune (8921) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JAN 4, 2009
650ml dark blue, Yuletide-decorated bottle bought at Vinmonopolet in Harstad, and shared with Eva on a Saturday eve. Clear golden-amber body topped by a thin, ring of dimples. Pale malty aroma with an artificial impression. Sweet malty taste with notes of fresh berries and lemony fruits. Herbal dry endnotes. Lively carbonated. Some refreshments, sparse Christmas mood [Tromsø, 03.01.2009].

MoritzF (8676) - Bochum, GERMANY - DEC 28, 2008
[25cl bottle, merci beaucoup à Quack-Duck pour les petites Françaises] Clear, amber colour with a cream-coloured, mid-sized foamy head. Sweet and slightly sourish malty nose with a touch of toffee and flowery as well as spicy accents, also quite artificial. Light-bitter flavour, medium bodied with a moderate carbonation. Malt-accented, slightly fruity taste with spicy (pepper, cinnamon) notes. Quite dry and slightly bitter, spicy and shy hoppy finish with traces of alcohol that cannot be hidden. All in all not bad [20.XII.08].

leaparsons (8650) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 8, 2004
Brown in colour and quite still. Aromas beer with a single malt whisky stirred in. Flavours are syrupy malts and that quite French whisky something or other. Medicinal, earthy flavours are also present. Odd, but merely OK.

Chemical fumes and bubbly orange soda…Short-lived taste and hopefully soon forgotten…

chriso (7475) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 14, 2011
On tap at the Draft House, Tower Bridge on 8 February 2011 (as Meteor Biere d’Hiver). Orange in colour. Sweetish and quite fruity. Not much hop character in evidence. That’s about it really. Difficult to place style-wise - at least it’s not listed as a Biere De Garde. Overall, pleasant enough but not hugely interesting.

KyotoLefty (7134) - Kyoto, JAPAN - DEC 24, 2008
Bottle in Strassbourg, 2006. Called Biere Aromatisee a l’orange, and it sure was. Amber color. Basically a cheap beer, with a little more malt character than their pils, but still not near enough. Hopping was not too bad. There was a ton of orange in there, certainly some kind of syrup as it was very sweet and caramelly. It was drinkable, but basically cheap alcopop. Slightly interesting, but forgettable.
