(Slaghmuylder Kerstbier) Bottle 330 ml at home, surprised to see this is a pilsner. Served into a lager glass, ABV 5.2% Deep golden yellow colour on the body, crazy activity in it. Small but thick white head, with very good retention, leaving light lacing on the glass. Malty aroma but with a light citrus presence. Good taste too, again light malty with some citrus/lemon presence to break the sweetness, metallic notes on the finish, quite clean though. Medium thin body, good carbonation. Overall a very good beer, definitely not what you expect from something called kerstbier but still good.

Very unusual Christmas beer since this is not a spiced Scotch but a ’pils’ (pale lager), but then, if you come to think of it, Stella Artois once began as a Christmas beer too - so this one too refers to a forgotten time when pale lager overwhelmed Belgian beer culture even in Christmas versions. I agree with Tim Webb that this is one of the better Belgian lagers, with a deep yellow golden colour and an honest malt profile; corn has been added for the colour, but does not disturb, a first for me in pale lagers.

deanso (5580) - the Hague, NETHERLANDS - AUG 18, 2014
33cl bottle from Speciaalbier, Leiden Thin white head. Clear golden pouir. A crap Xmas beer. Not herbal, not dark. Why do they call this an Xmas beer???

ShivanDragon (1778) - Leeuwarden, NETHERLANDS - DEC 28, 2013
Licht gouden, ja blijkbaar zijn niet alle kerstbieren donker, helder met minimale witte kraag. Aroma is zoetig en caramel moutigheid. De smaken zijn matig zoet, redelijk bitter, licht van sterkte, stevig moutig maar dan met name pilsmoutig, mais. Het zijn iig erg goedkope smaken in de mond en bovendien ook nog metalig. Lichte body, dun maar totale ervaring was Niet lekker !!

Benzai (8754) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - DEC 14, 2013
Sampled @ Kerstbierfestival Essen 2013. Clear golden color, medium sized white head. Smell and taste are quite crisp, malts, hayish, lightly bitter. Average body and carbonation.

tricksta_p (1271) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - DEC 11, 2013
Pours a clear golden with a white head. Aroma of grains, slightly fruity, yeasty and some hops. Decent pale ale, but I had better hopes for this one, it’s not what I seek in a Christmas Ale.

Moravius (570) - Berlin, GERMANY - DEC 1, 2013
Flasche von Bierzwerg.de (33 cl). - Keksartig-malzsüßer Antrunk, gefolgt von etwas penetranter, obwohl nicht allzu kräftiger Hopfennote mit deutlicher Bittere. Etwas wäßrig. Im Hintergrund blasse zitrusähnliche Aromen. Unangenehmer Beigeschmack, vielleicht vom enthaltenen Mais. - Kein großer Genuß und erst recht nicht das, was man sich unter einem belgischen Weihnachtsbier vorstellt.

Idiosynkrasie (4023) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JAN 12, 2013
330ml bottle. Clear pale golden colour with average, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Hoppy aroma with cautious hints of spice and herbs in the background. Taste is initially slightly watery and minimally strawy, has notes of hay, hints of cooked vegetables, later with a nice herbal note.
