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.

thewolf (11260) - Kolding, DENMARK - DEC 25, 2009
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.

Tmoney99 (11094) - 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.

Koelschtrinker (11063) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 11, 2011
Im Antrunk ist das Bier aromatisch hopfig, natürlich, vielfältig. Der Hopfen weitet sich aber sogar noch aus, dabei nimmt er an Herbe zu und ist so nicht mehr der alleinige Taktgeber. Weniger bitter, auch die Herbe ist im Vergleich zum Hopfen dann doch eher gering. Etwas fruchtig und grasig, zudem sind Honignoten erkennbar. Vollmundig hopfig, im Abgang verfliegt er aber merkwürdig schnell und hinterlässt keine bitteren oder herben Noten, das Bier ist minimal grasig. Ein durch und durch auf den Hopfen ausgelegtes Bier! 12/12/11/12//12
