SilkTork (5361) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 27, 2011
750ml bottle from a French supermarket. It’s a moderately pleasant, but somewhat vague and muddy drink. Some paraffin notes. Some candy sugar. Few hops at the end. A sort of dirty yeast/spice flavour that is not attractive. A little thin for 6.8%, and rather unexciting.

Beautiful amber color; nice lace. Light aroma, with sweetness. Flavor is very sweet. Good beer for christmas. All too sweet for outside the Christmas season.

psilosophy (544) - vitry en artois, FRANCE - DEC 28, 2010
Bouteille de 25cl. Couleur ambrée foncée, mousse moyenne qui s’estompe assez rapidement. Ressemble beaucoup à la Saint Landelin ambrée, peut être un peu plus amère et avec les épices de noël en plus. Trouvée à Intermarché - Montigny en Gohelle.

bhensonb (12048) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 24, 2010
750 c&c. Pours medium amber with a very coarsley foamy beige head. The head collapses and rings. Aroma is cooked caramel. Med body. Flavor is lightly sweet with some very mild hop. Drinks very well. Is it a spicey thing? No. Sort of a very extra good Jenlain sort of drink. Love it.

JK (4845) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - MAY 30, 2010
UPDATED: AUG 30, 2010 Light brown color and a white head. Flavor has some malt, quite dry, and clearly recognizable French/ Biere de Garde yeast, which is how I would classify this beer. Simple and one dimensional, with the dry malt dominating the flavor and aroma.

BeerandBlues2 (10546) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 15, 2010
750 mL bottle. Pours clear and sparkling deep copper with a medium, fizzy and frothy off-white head, good retention. Aroma is sweet caramel malt, light toast and biscuit, low fruity esters, and no hops. Flavor is lightly sweet caramel and biscuit malt, low hop bitterness, earth and cellar notes with a dry and fizzy-spicy finish. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation.

beerguy101 (5319) - Newark, California, USA - MAR 14, 2010
Sampled on 1/29/2010. This Belgian Strong Ale pours a medium orange amber color from a corked and caged 750ml bottle. Medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is caramel, cider, herbal and sweet. A medium bodied Belgian Strong Ale. The malts are fruity and sweet, touch of bread and caramel. Touch of apple cider, bread and honey. Hops are earthy. Nice balance. Good carbonation. I had a lot of French Xmas beer this past season, that sort of taste like this one, ciderish, sweet, earthy and spicy. Nice sipping beer. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.
