3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
[Tasted in 2003.]
A nice beer with only small notes of christmas. Sweet and fruity, but needs more spices. Some weak carbonation, but better that average.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Once I didn’t like Belgian or Belgian inspired beers, and this Christmas beer had an important role in my transformation. It’s not one of the big ones, I know. But even if it’s quite uncomplicated and not so "big", I still love it....
The aroma is nicely spiced and malty, the color is warm amber and the head is nice. Even if it’s sweet there is a nice citrus, that balances the sweetness in a subtle and perfect way, making this an unexpected pleasure. It has notes of fruit, honey, flower and a hint of oranges and other citrus fruits. Nice to sip, nice to enjoy in all it’s uncomplicated charm. 1 year of storing makes it even better, actually much smoother and nice.
