KoNrRiI (389) - Århus, DENMARK - JAN 23, 2014
0.5 bottle. Cloudy, amber color and an off-white head which leaves not a bad lacing behind. Sweet yeasty aroma containing quite a lot of spices and some sour citruses with an unusual addition of juniper. Taste is sweet as well with the same spices and citrus flavors but it features some bitter tones too which prevent it from becoming dull. Medium body, oily texture, and below average carbonation. Finish is worse than expected and frankly spoils the whole beer a bit; starts nicely and sweet at first but then gradually turns bitter and even leaves a bit of an astringent sensation. Overall the beer starts off well but then is spoiled by an excessive, as for a Christmas beer, bitterness; has more characteristics common to IPAs.

omhper (18966) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - DEC 27, 2012
Bottled, thanks fonefan! Hazy golden, rich creamy head. Hoppy grapefruit and tangerine aroma. Sweetish with medium body and rounded mouthfeel. Fruity with tangerine and pine needles. Long bitterness. Christmas IPA?

mikkellund42 (491) - DENMARK - DEC 7, 2012
Bottle. Pours hazy yellow/amber with medium white head. Aroma is sour apples, sour dough, citrus spruce, juniper, wet paint - light synthetic. Taste is medium to heavy bitter and medium sour. Body is oily with good carbonation. Finish is long and bitter with notes of nuts, bitter grapefruit, lime and milk. In a blind tasting I would have said that this is an IPA rather than a Christmas beer.

stobbe74 (3789) - DENMARK - NOV 30, 2012
Pours a hazy golden beer with a white head. The aroma is malt and hops with citrus and too much green material. The flavor follows the nose with additional grapefruit. The palate is bitterness. Overall a good beer.

Bottle. Pours clear golden with white head. Bitter, but not unpleasant, hoppy taste with a slightly bitter aftertaste. Ok, but a trifle disappointing.

Bottle. Large creamy beige head that mostly lasted. Fair display of lacework. Cloudy amber color. Aroma of malt, light Christmas spice, fruity and yeast notes. Light to medium bodied with an average carbonation. Moderated sweet flavor with some mild counter bitterness. Light malty and spicy finish.
