3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled, 0.75l. Clear amber - hazy with yeast - with a small, partly lasting head. Very mild aroma of caramely malt, berries, nuts, cinnamon, and some other spices. Caramely-malty flavor with yeast and lots of Belgian-style fruitiness. Spices are present, but not as dominant as in the aroma. Medium body with quite a lot of carbonation for this brewery. Something between Leffe and Jacobsen Golden Naked, which equals roughly something ok, but nothing very interesting.
