Holmen1 (2715) - Stavanger, NORWAY - JUN 17, 2014
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 (2883) - 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 (5278) - 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 (5607) - 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 (1164) - 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 (4576) - 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.

PapaVillum (494) - Valby, DENMARK - NOV 29, 2013
50 cl, flaske, 6,0 %, gave fra Sophie sidste år - tak, 29. november 2013. Mahogni-farvet ganske klar julebryg (årgang 2012) med 1 cm mocca-farvet skum, som minimeres hurtigt. Lettere julearoma af sødlige tørrede frugter, gran/fyrrenåle, kanel. Smagen er knap så sød, som forventet. Men en fin afstemt julebryg, som ikke stikker i nogen retning. Sødme og bitterhed i forening i starten, men man efterlades med et bittert indtryk. Kulsyren virker fint afstemt og skruet let ned. En lille fin og ikke så stærk julebryg. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bamsen78 (3315) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - NOV 26, 2013
Bottle. Pours clear tea amber with airy but stable off-white head. Clear aroma of malt and hops, with a touch of roast amånd sparse hoppy notes. Sweet, malty and caramellish flavour, enriched by fruity and roasty touches, and bitter, hoppy notes, as well as hints of gingerbread. Ends rather dry. A complex and rather decent beer.

CPH2200 (296) - DENMARK - NOV 17, 2013
50 cl bottle 6.0% 2013 edition. Ruby brown colour almost no head, could be dirty glassware. Nose has faint brown sugar. Taste has brown sugar and spices. Somewhat watery. Boring.
