On tap at Fynske Øldage, Odense, Denmark. Malty and sweet aroma. Clear, amber beer with an off-white head and low carbonation. Citric and sweet flavor. Miss the Christmas-feeling in this one, but it is not bad at all. (051029)

Amber colour. Cedar and juniper nose, also little sugary. Cork has left marks on both aroma and flavour. Pretty light mouthfeel. Dried fruits such as plum is most dominant.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Amber coloured, thin white head. Woody, cedar nose with some hints of juniper. Sweet, almondy, slight woody (cork) flavour. Some notes of plum & raisin is present. Quite short aftertaste. Christmas-like seems to be a popular description here, so......YES it´s very christmas-like.

75 cl Bottle. No yeast in bottom. Brown/amber in colour with a nice head. Very malty aroma, with some spicy notes. A malty and caramel taste, speciel for a christmas ale. A good frence beer, BUT not a great one in the big picture.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JUN 23, 2005 (Bottle 75 cl) Pretty, filtered amber with a fine yet discreet head.. Slightly sweet to begin with but well balanced off by the hops. Not very fullbodied in spite of the alcohol, but a quite harmonic beer. 100404

Very Christmas-like but too sweet for my taste. The sweetness overwhelmes everything.
