Clear teak pour with a tiny head; at Churchkey on draught. Spice, hop, cinnamon, clove, and good sweet malt presence; classic biere de garde plus Christmas spice, just what you’d expect. Pleasant balance of malt and spice on the flavor with a nice dry spicy palate. Nice.

Rating #645, flaske fra Fish N’ Beer medbragt til Julebrygsmagning 2011 af Brianwillum

Jeg husker denne øl som den første til julebrygsmagningen der rent faktisk smagte behageligt. Vi taler om en uklar, nærmest tåget øl med et stort og holdbart skum. Duften var præget af syltede bær, lidt malt, citrus og abrikos. Dertil kommer en smag der er meget belgisk inspireret med noter af citrus og let bær, og selvfølgelig lidt træ der understreger øltypen. Middelmådig fylde.

DYCSoccer17 (3226) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 14, 2011
750mL bottle acquired through a white elephant holiday beer swap. The aroma is a bit musty, oxidized, floral, and lightly sweet. Hints of honey is present, and this is rather quaffable. Mildly hazy orange-amber body with a small, off-white head. Starts a little toasted and sweet. Caramelly/metallic in the middle, before it becomes roasty, dry, and lightly bitter with a long long finish. Rather thin. Nothing special. Has a weird mouthfeel that is too thin and dry.

Dark golden/light amber, nice head, tiny carb bubbles. Nice dusty yeast, malt up front. Light fruit, hints of alcohol. Flavor full of phenolics, alcohol, light fruit. Medium body and mouthfeel.
