oh6gdx (20670) - Vasa, FINLAND - NOV 9, 2012
Bottled (from Alko Prisma, Vaasa). Deep golden colour, huge fluffy/foamy white head that leaves some lace. Aroma is lots of tropical fruityness, mild spruce and some slight sweet syrupy and gingery notes. Mild honey in there as well. Flavour is sweet tropical fruits, mild honey, some slight gingery freshness (no real burn, just a slight gingery tone to it) and mild spruce and some rasiny/sappy notes. Woohah, what a nice surprise. Not sure what this beer has to do with Christmas except for the name, but this beer is brilliance!

Very hazy amber beer with a good fluffy white head. Crispy palate. Light creamy malt base. Minerals. Nice hops - sweetish orange marmalade nicely balanced with bitter grapefruit. Follows through with some peach and traces of tropical fruits. Finishes crisp. Effortlessly drinkable.

fiulijn (15000) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 27, 2012
Draught at Ølbaren, Copenhagen
Hazy golden color, small creamy head. Aroma of fruity hops, creamy, light tomato too; some oranges and cheese. Good body strength; the mouthfeel is smooth; toffee flavor, a bit buttery and fruity, with a creamy impression; strong hopping, with plenty of hop oils and fruits.
Too candyish, but good overall.
