2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Amber, clear and with a white head. Sweat malty aroma... A little two sweet on the palate and hops are bitter and not present enough to offset the sweetness. Reminiscent of other French beers such as 1664, but sweeter and more powerful in alcohol. Slightly sour as well and fizzy. Could have been better. It looks like a great beer, but taste like a bad one.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Brown 750ml cork-and-wire finished bottle. Date stamp on front label 07.03.13.
Appearance: An orange-amber color with good clarity and some visible carbonation bubbles. Generous and durable bone-colored head leaves plenty of sticky lacing on the glass.
Aroma: mix of Belgian dubbel and French biere de garde. Hints of honey, dark dried fruits and apricot jam.
Palate: Medium body; medium-high carbonation; Soft and smooth.
O: a pleasant Holiday ale that is more than a little like a Belgian dubbel and which worked fine in the 100F degree heat of Arizona.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from a 750ml bottle. The aroma is candied fruit, caramel, hints of cinnamon. The flavor starts off with a solid caramel sweetness, and finishes sweet with fruits and spices. This is a sweet holiday ale. I enjoyed this holiday ale.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Rail soda with Deanso. Nice fruity aroma leading to a bitter sweet moderately malty flavour. A decent Christmas beer but could do with being less sweet more malty and a little more bitter!
