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 (300) - 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 (2413) - 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.

En trevlig Ale som inte smakar allt för mycket jul. Klassisk smak, ljusbrun färg och noll krona. Helt Ok
