* Old rating, Many thanks to Simon for bringing this bottle from Denmark. Best before 01.10.2010. Mild-malziges, nett gewürziges Weihnachtsbier. Süffig-mild, malzig mit kräuteriger Herbe. Die verwendeten Zweige scheinen leicht holzig-erdig durch. Interessant.

Bottler @ friends. Appearance: pours clear ruby/brown with ok off-white head and some lacing. Aroma/taste: caramel and a lot of Christmas spices. Palate: medium carbonation, medium body, distinct sweetness, low bitterness, medium duration and oily texture. Overall: too sweet and spicy seasonal for my taste

A bottle, 6,0%. Clear dark amber colour with off white creamy head. Notes of syrup, sugar and some alkohol, but not too much. Taste is medium sweet with a long sweet finish. Pretty good beer. I enjoyed it, but ond bottle was enough.

Flaske delt på rbhd-samling hos Odd Gunnar: denne skal være "tilsat ekstrakt af håndplukkede grankviste". Fin aroma med julekrydder, og en rund smak med de samme pluss litt kvae. Myk. Christmas pudding? Nesten i meste laget, særlig en varm sommerkveld i juni. Litt bitterhet skaper en fin helhet i denne, som jeg måprøve på nytt i den passende årstid.

abemorsten (2942) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - JUN 13, 2014
0,5 l bottle kindly shared by Sigmund. ABV is 6,0%. Clear nut golden body with a white rim. Leaves, flowers scented eraser and rock sugar on the nose. Spices and dried fruits with a balanced bitterness. Christmas pudding comes to mind.

Sigmund (5341) - Tau, NORWAY - JUN 13, 2014
Shared 500 ml bottle at local tasting, from Voldby Købmandsgaard. ABV is 6.0%. Reddish dark amber colour. Aroma of Christmas spices, malts and spruce - but unfortunately also a hint of vomit. Strong and medium sweet flavour of Christmas spices and spruce - some may find it "over the top", but I like it. A little more hops wouldn’t hurt though.

gunnar (5752) - Sandnes, NORWAY - JUN 13, 2014
Shared bottle at local tasting. ABV 6 %.Pours hazy brown with a tiny white head. Aroma of caramel and christmas spices. Taste is light sweet, with too much spices for my likings. Dry spicy and herbal finish.

Holmen2 (1275) - NORWAY - JUN 13, 2014
Dark amber. Short beige head. Fine and refreshing aroma. Spicy Christmas fruit cake in taste. Perhaps a bit too much of the latter.

Beer4000 (4696) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 8, 2013
500 ml bottle. Clear amber body with a decent off-white head. Weak in aroma, light malt and some caramel. Not too strong in flavor but not bad either. No obvious faults. Sweet malty, some caramel, light fruit, some spices and moderate bitterness. Nothing here reminds me about Belgium ale and too much of a Christmas beer either but it went fine together with herring and sour crème.
