One of my favourite beers, lovely spicy palate where the ginger hits, it appears a little cloudy but the aroma makes up for it. Delicious.

Aroma is tropical fruit and caramel. Round mouthfeel. Nice malty base, fruity hops and little herby too.

Desverger (2157) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 22, 2014
Tap@Mikkeller Bar, CPH - fuzzy golden pour with a small white head. Aroma and taste of hoppy citrus notes, pine needles, straw, slightly toasty malt, caramel, some herbal and floral nuances in there. Nice brew.

angel77 (1017) - oviedo, SPAIN - JAN 19, 2014
Botella de 33 cl en casa. 21-12-13 Aromas afrutados con ciertos toques resinosos Cuerpo medio con color ambar tostado bastante turbio y con espuma blanca bastante persistente. Sabores afrutados al principio pińa mango melocoton... Seguidos de malta y ligero toque final de resina y pino muy ligero. Muy buena la mejor de navidad -y que no parece de navidad- hasta el momento.

agent_persik (413) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 11, 2014
Clean golden color, medium white head. Floral aroma with notes of caramel, pine, ginger, yeast and some spices. Taste is similar, mostly sweet with light dryness and medium bitter hoppy finish and spicy aftertaste. Medium body and high carbonation. Drinkable, but has some unpleasant notes, which I don’t like.

Now, that’s a proper Christmas beer (by that I mean, not a potpourri bomb). Aroma is brightly lit by fruit and pine, followed by a well-carbonated body and citric flavor mellowed by a caramel sweetness. Not to worry, it finishes dry and spicy, likely where the ginger and pine needles show up most. Bravo!

In a world of dark Belgian winter beer, this one stands out with the best of them for pale wintertime ales! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
