Special for Wetherspoons: "As a special treat this Christmas, we have brought this beer across from one of Belgium’s great breweries. It has pronounced hop flavours which complement the fruit and caramel notes, together with an emerging sweetness and pleasing, soft finish."

berkshirejohn (5884) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 14, 2011
Cask at the John Logie Baird (JDW), Hastings. Golden amber with a thin white head that laced the glass nicely; the aroma is yeasty with some red fruit; the body is grainy with a slightly sour fruit flavour; and the finish is dry with some caramel biscuit and perhaps a touch of spice. Very pleasant and reminiscent of the standard Palm.

niquillis (2344) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 11, 2011
On cask at jdw, stone. Pours brown with white head. Sour, dark fruits, dry and pretty uninteresting. Especially for a Belgian ale ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Leighton (18005) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 8, 2011
Cask at The Hamilton Hall, JDW, London. Pours clear gold with a creamy cap. Lots of lacing. Some doughy malts in the nose. Medium sweet flavor, subtle Belgian yeast, some dough, faint alcohol. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Sticky, malty finish, some sweet bread, toasty sugar, weak Belgian character. Drinkable but that’s about it.

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - DEC 4, 2011
Cask conditioned Handpump Moon On The Square Northampton. A classic brown coloured beer with an off-white coloured collection of head. Served very cold. Nutty and a bit fruity in the nose. Better fruits in the mouth with a touch of berry. Dark fruits. Certainly malty with sweetness. It’s OK.

BeerViking (3982) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 1, 2011
Cask/handpump at the Sir Michael Balcon in Ealing. Amber with fine white head, caramel and malt on the nose, sweetish and fruity but with a tart edge. Dry-sweet finish with a little floral hop coming through. Not bad at all.
