Bottle: The aroma is fruit (plum and grape) and candi sugar. It pours a hazy, bordering on cloudy, amber with a small off-white head that fades to a thin film. The flavor has lots of grape and plum. There is some faint tartness in the background. The finish has some light caramel and the faintest hint of spice. Light-medium bodied with lively carbonation.

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.

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

Purchased from Carrefour in Steenvorde (petrol stop) and split with Leighton and Bruce in J98 LLY en route to Kortrijk. Lightly hazed dark amber with a big frothy biege head that retains well. Nose is toffee, yeast, clove, banana, spice. Taste comprises yeasts, toffee, light spice, brown sugars, touch of booze, hint of smoke. Medium bodied with fine carbonation, some bitterness in the finish. Ok stuff.
