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

yngwie (13211) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 7, 2012
Bottle, 75cl. A clear, dark amber colored beer topped by a dense, light beige head of finger-thick size. Fruity and candy-ish aroma with some notes of toffee. Sweet and fruity flavor with some bitterness and a faint caramel touch. Warming, full-bodied and nicely carbonated. A decent beer, not very Christmas-ish in my book, and lacking on complexity. 110826

TBone (12474) - 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.

thewolf (11131) - Kolding, DENMARK - NOV 12, 2010
Bottle, bought @ LIVA, Kolding.
Clear amber with a fine, medium, frothy, white head. Mild caramel aroma, some toasted notes, light earthy. Medium, but kinda prickly carbonation, fine mild creamy mouthfeel. Flavour has good caramel as base, a hint of milky chocolate, a bit of piney and earthy hops. Red apples and a hint of cranberries. Mildly dry in the finish. Fine, elegant beer, even if doesn’t really break new ground.
