tlind2 (1126) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 8, 2008
750 ml swing-top bottle. Amber color, off-white head. Strong aroma of sweet spices. Sweet flavor with orange peel. Medium-full body, medium carbonation. Too sweet for my taste.

TBone (12544) - Pori, FINLAND - DEC 7, 2008
Bottled BBE 03/2010, 75cl flip-top. Clear amber color, no head. Spicey, candy-watermelon-menthol aroma, also slightly cellary. Fizzy carbonation. Crystal sugary malty flavor with light spices and fruity notes. Touch of clove. Typical biere de garde hard mouthfeel and quick finish. These usually taste more like a lager than an ale and this is no exception.

oh6gdx (20299) - Vasa, FINLAND - NOV 29, 2008
Bottled (from Alko). Amber colour, small beige head. Aroma is bready malts, some slight sour fruits as well as some cinnamon. Cinnamon increases as the beer gets warmer. Flavour is earth, sour wood, smooth fruityness and some yeast. Gets more fullpalated and tastier as it gets warmer.

75cl bottle from Auchan, Calais. Chestnut colour with thick off white head. Yeasty, spicey malt aroma, which is great. Candy sugar and dry malt in mouth. Some nice raisiny furit. Quite good hop on the end. Bit of spice. Dry malt fruit is good. One of the better Noel Biere de Garde
