Magnum from Half Time. Pours hazy orange amber with a heavy foamy beige head. Lightly sour citrus aroma. Me. body; mild carb. Flavor is lightly sour, citrus, and rather decent De Proef funk that develops with a little time. Finishes smooth and Belgian. Wouldn’t have known this was Xmas ale. Good tasting ale.

Tmoney99 (12233) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 25, 2010
Draft. Poured clear dark copper color with an average frothy off-white head that lasted and produced excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy complex spice and alcohol aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy spice sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate to long duration. This is a good holiday beer.

Bottle, bought @ Ølbutikken, Cph. Enjoyed to the Christmas dinner.
Pours hazy amber with a good, creamy, off-white head. Aroma is super hoppy. Grassy, grapefruit, peach. Some caramel and wheat as backbone. Medium carbonation, nice dryness. Rather creamy. Flavour is dry, sweet wheat, some caramel, coriander. And a sh**-load of dry bitter hops. Lightly fruity and grassy. Lovely balanced beer.

FatPhil (11522) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 24, 2011
UPDATED: NOV 28, 2012 1.5L bottle (Pikkulintu, Helsinki, Olutopas Pikkujoulu 2011) - shared by someone generous - thanks! (6:3:7:4:13=3.3)
6 Super sweet mandarin peach and toffee aroma.
3 Sludgy, but we were at the bottom of the bottle, after many pours.
7 Exceptionally toffee-ey taste, lots of fleshy fruits too.
4 Full, sweet, sticky body. Again, not aided by being at the end of the bottle, but if Mikkeller think it’s a good idea to put beer in bottles this size, they’ve got to expect people to judge it after it’s been tipped up 20 times.
13 Don’t get me wrong, this may have been unclean to the eye, and stodgier on the tongue than what the guys who cracked it open for, but by no means was this unpleasant, it was very drinkable. Covered the alcohol well.
Rerate: 1.5L bottle (Drink Shop, Tallinn) (6:4:6:4:13=3.4)
From the top of the bottle this time - and it’s a lovely clear red. Apart from that difference, it’s mostly the same as before. Things related to teh slidginess are gone, and the toffee aspects too - this is drier. A real zingy bitter bite, but also smooth. Tasty - I like it, but it might be a little bit too agressive in places.
