3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle: Had this beer many many times in the past. Every vacation in or around Luxembourg we had several of the Simon beers and some other beers from local or even Belgium/German brewers. As a matter of fact I got one bottle of this beer cellared which past it’s prime about 12 years ago.. Not sure if this would still be drinkable and more than just some honey...
Old rating, spiced up a tiny bit:
White head on top of a yellow golden beer.
Smell dust, malts, older flowers and grains.
Taste bitters, malts, hops, grains, plants and some yeast.
Quite easy drinkable and enjoyed it on several evenings.
The Noël is the best from Simon!
But this is quite an easy beer, nothing complex, strange or great, but just a fine beer what you exactly know what to expect from...

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dec 2009: Brown 33cl bottle best before 20th May 2010.
Poured into my huge ’Judas’ glass. The beer was a misty, cloudy dull lemon colour, the head pure white and fading in size before I had taken a sip and sniff. To be fair though, the collar did produce some good lacing as I downed the beer.
Real yeasty aroma, with some citrus notes in there too, grapefruit and lemons, but not a sour feel or smell to it.
Very fizzy and light in both taste and texture. I have read this is 92% beer and 8% local sparkling wine, the taste backs this up.
Different that’s for sure, not overly impressed, but glad I’ve had one. In the right place and circumstances this could/would be a great drink to bring out. Sadly my house tonight isn’t either.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Getreidiger, sonst aber sehr milder und nichtssagender Antrunk. Dies ändert sich merkwürdigerweise auch im Mittelteil nicht, prickelnd, feinherb, muffig-malzig. Eine Biermischung, bei der ein langweilig schmeckendes Lager heauskommt - spricht mich nicht an..
Danke an FaustusI!
