2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
In the bomber bottle from Beertopia. Pours an extremely bright clear bronze amber color with a medium thick off white head. Aroma is very perfume-like. Flavor is devoid of anything that you might think of as holiday or christmas. This is a Fischer with a pretty label. Palate is very thin and watery. Not a bad beer, just nothing special. At $4.99 a 750 mL bottle, you get your money’s worth.

Very nice dark amber colour with a solid meringue-like head. Not much on the nose, just malts and alcohol. Taste isn’t bad but not great - malts, grains, dry finish and some brown sugary-taste in there, along with some disgusting tinniness. Could be better.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
750ml - Pours a dark amber in color with a foamy white head that settles to a thick covering over the beer. Some small lacing on the glass. Aroma is thick with bready yeast, fruits, honey and sweet malts. Flavor is quite fruity with esters and caramel malts. Flavor is not that strong. Somewhat watery. Some hops, but slightly sweet initially and quite pronounced at the finish. Not that impressive for a "Belgian" (not!)
