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

Bottle. Amber color with a small white head. Sweet malty caramel aroma and taste, light spicy. Medium body and a sweet finish.

En sød ukompliceret øl. Først bitter, så sød. Smager af rørsukker, karamel med lidt god vilje. Abrikos? Dufter af honning og frugt. Fin gyldenbrun farve, men spinkelt skum. Glider let ned...

Good appearance. The aroma and the taste as well, is just to sweet. It overwells the beer. The sweetness/citrus flavor makes the beer an odd christmas beer. It would not do well at a danish christmas dinner.

The beer is quite boring. The brewers don’t succed in making a abbey dubbel style. They shoul concentrate on their own style saison and stay away from the Belgian styles. Wheaty flavor and yeasty, malty finish.

On tap at Falstaff, Paris. Nice copper body topped with a good white foamy head. Pleasant fruity aroma with hints of alcohol and brown sugar. Rich sweet taste with a decent warming finish. A bit unidimansional, but I like it.

A very delicious beer - sweet, but not cloying. Probably a disappointment if you’re after complexity, but a wholesome brew.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Raisin, plum, clove and ginger, some other Christmas spices, reminding me of a spicy Christmas candle. Sweet and spicy. Dark amber clear with thin off-white lacing head. Light-medium watery body with light soft carbonation. Aroma fools you into thinking that this is a rich, complex beer. Taste is pretty weak and watery. Starts with light sweetness and malt, with nondescript spicy tones. No acidity. Finish is mild sweet and some bitterness. It’s well balanced, but just lacks any substance. After is malty, a little nutty, with maybe some clove.

(750 ml corked bottle, champagne style. Bought in Denmark.). A Christmas beer in August, why not? Amber colour, large fizzy head that doesn’t last very long. Pleasant and complex aroma of oak, caramel, dried fruits and spices. I find the flavour less complex, maybe because of the beer’s fizzyness. Still it is reasonably malty and easily drinkable, fairly sweet. Aftertaste is OK but not impressive.
