trapez (1537) - Hilleroed, DENMARK - DEC 11, 2011
Large bottle. Aroma dominated by the hops with lots of grass and hay. Slightly unclear orange colour with white head. Spicy flavour with some orange and fresh hops bitterness. Not very Christmaslike but a nice Christmas present.

stefannilssons (1534) - SWEDEN - DEC 20, 2012
Bara flaskan är en kul upplevelse, sanningen är att jag gick och småskrattade med flaskan som en bebis i mina armar när jag kom ut från systembolaget. Helt frisk är man ju inte! Ölen intogs under en extravagant ölprovning och i ett celebert sällskap så sto d den ändå ut, både som en riktigt bra öl men också som kvällens överraskning. Ölen hade en bra kropp och en en precis balans med inslag av frukt och syra. Slutsats: sjukt bra och kul öl.

gramity (1530) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 20, 2012
RBAG Summer Session. First beer of the tasting. Pours amber with a lacy head. Aroma of caramel malts, some wheat and light fruits, a little spiciness, plus a lot of hops. Flavor the same. Strong on hops, not like most of this style. Smooth texture.

RasmusOtt (1519) - Aarhus, DENMARK - NOV 19, 2011
On tap. Pours redish orange with off white head. Aroma is sweet rice, almost like rice milk, some milky lacto sweetness, rice pudding, sweet grains, almons, honey, some hops behind and a yeasty feel. Taste is very different. Alot more fresh with hops, citrus and grapefruit bit still the grainy sweetness from the aroma is there underneath.

Heathen (1500) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - FEB 3, 2012
THOUGHTS: Nice, but not Christmasy. Nice hybrid. Actually very nice. It kept getting better as it warmed. Orange, caramel and spice were the main aromas and flavors. TECHNICAL: Magnum bottle. Poured a cloudy, light to medium amber with a large, creamy, off-white head that mostly, but slowly, diminished and that left excellent lacing. The aroma had moderate caramel and wheat; moderate to heavy pine, grapefruit and orange hops; light to moderate doughy, spicy and dusty yeast; orange; and coriander. The initial flavor was light to mod sweet, mod to heavily acidic and moderately bitter; while the finish was moderately sweet, mod to heavily acidic and heavily bitter with a long duration. There was caramel malt, wheat, lots of citrus, orange, coriander, pepper, grapefruit; some other fruitiness, spicy yeast and hops, and some metallic hops. The medium to full body was creamy, then dry with fizzy carbonation and a metallic and moderately astringent finish.

jefcon (1491) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - DEC 22, 2013
Big bottle. Hops, orange, light caramel on the nose. A little effervescent, long finish. Spices on the palate: clove, coriander, white pepper, pine. Lots of fruit on the finish, and not too sweet.

Reimer96 (1490) - Alberta, CANADA - NOV 21, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 18, 2013 Pours a amber color with a big white head and nice lace. Aroma is citrus grapefruit with some spice. Taste is very citrus and malty taste that has some sweetness. Great balances of hops and malts. This is one of the best Christmas beers you can get!

jmikolich (1477) - North Ridgeville, Ohio, USA - FEB 5, 2013
Tap at Lizardville, RR almost too much going on in this beer, with the orange and hop fighting for who is dominant, lack of coriander and full body that I expect from a wit
