3oz tasting at DBS. Aroma has some alcohol in the nose with caramel notes. Caramel, light/dark fruit, and alcohol in flavor. Nice balance of carbonation and mouthfeel. Very good beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DTM (798) - Winters, California, USA - FEB 9, 2012
3oz tasting from Davis Beer Shoppe. Lighter bodied beer with the dark fruits dominating . Honestly nothing special about it, not very memorable.

maneliquor (3011) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAY 20, 2012
Bottle from Mane Liquor. 2009 edition. Pours amber with a small, bubbly, yellow head leaving thick lacing. Nose is sweet and sour. Very cider like with lots of spices and sour undertones. A touch of hay to begin with. A fair few transitions between sweet and sour notes in this one. Dark fruits with subtle spices and high carbonation to help it flow. Not bad but was expecting a little more

Savvy1982 (1705) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 6, 2012
Bottle, at work, in one of the store’s tulip sampling glasses. Pours clear deep tawny, thin off-white head, no lacing. Nose is very sweet, lifted and floral, with lots.of plums, honey, red licorice, brandy, Christmas cake. Flavours of big raisin, dates, plums, prunes, earth, rather sweet, but decent enough...

AdamJackson (2389) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 21, 2012
Acquired at State Line Liquors in January in Delaware. Enjoyed in a wine glass.

A - Deep brown and amber red hues. No head at all.

S - Lots of big caramel and sugar. Some breadiness. I get this dark fruit sort of fig and dark plums. Maybe some peaches?

T - yeah. this is a beer loaded with herbs, spices, fruit and big nice belgian yeast. Not much like the Chouffe I’m used to. Lot more fruit than the standard chouffe. It’s bigger and sweeter. Very holiday-esque with the undertones of basil, mint and spices.

M - 80% carbonation on the mouth swish. Medium body. Sweet candy like finish.

O - It’s a solid beer. Glad I didn’t sit on it too long.

Ottima birra di natale, al naso un po' troppo alcolica e tostata mentre al gusto abbastanza equilibrata e caramellosa ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

MaartenRF10 (1566) - Wageningen, NETHERLANDS - DEC 22, 2012
Monthly Beerevents tasting @ Heidebrouwerij
Slightly hazy amber, light beige head. Malty beer, with some rye, spices, caramel and thyme (which is actually only detectable after reading the label) Some alcohol as well. Good body and carbo.

WilleLW (173) - Lund, SWEDEN - DEC 30, 2012
Dark brown redish colour with a crispy head. Aromas of malt, light tones of fruit, some spices and some sourness. Taste of malt, fruit and a light sourness with some alcohol and with some metallic taste in background. Unfortunately with a somewhat watery body,

I don’t know how this beer is rated so highly. It tastes like metallic, soapy apple juice. It’s watery with the only real redeeming quality as a premium beer being its alcohol.
