Benzai (11312) - 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 (2409) - 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 (905) - Beijing, CHINA - 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.

Noté en 2011 Petite bière de Noël sympa qui arrache pas la tête et douce avec une longue amertume en bouche

Idiosynkrasie (5319) - 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.

Brandman (2516) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 24, 2012
Hazy yellow body, white head. Aroma has toasty malt, cardboard, urinal. Quite light malt flavour, pepper, grassy. Much unwanted flavours, but somehow ok when combines.

Cuso (6595) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - DEC 22, 2012
Bottle from bierzwerg.de. Hazy light golden color with small white head. Light malty aroma. Taste, malt, hints of citrus, very light bitterness in background. Where is Christmas in this beer?

JefVerstraete (2297) - Ghent, BELGIUM - DEC 18, 2012
UPDATED: JAN 17, 2013 @ Kerstbierfestival, Essen. Very good pilsener. Starts a bit sweet but nice body and a bitter finish. Refreshing.

1/IX/2012 on tap @ Tuinfeest Heeren van Liedekercke (Denderleeuw) - BB: n/a (2012-989)

Little cloudy pale yellow beer, big aery fuzzy head, bit stable, adhesive. Aroma: hay, stable, grains, bit grassy, some citrus, spices. MF: soft carbon, medium body. Taste: grains, malts, pretty fruity, hay, stable, grassy bitterness, little sweet. Aftertaste: hay, pretty bitter, grassy, still fruity, lemon, tangerines, grains, all-bran. Reminds me a LOT of all the German Helles I recently had on holidays.

BlackHaddock (5187) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 11, 2012
July 2008: Oh dear, Tim Webb describes it as possibly the best Pilsner brewed in Belgium. My findings are very diferent. He claims 6%, I claim 5.2%. Choosen from the huge beer list at Cafe Botteltje in Ostend. My beer was out of date and this is not for ageing obvisously, as it was almost undrinkable. OK, only a sado like me would have finished it. A dull old gold colour, with a white head, so it looked OK. The 33cl brown bottle gave off a citrus smell and the beer looked fizzy, please read on. The beer from the list I had before this one, was a murky sludge (an out of date ’Lam Gods’). This beer had the aroma and taste of a lemon cleaning liquid, which came in handy the next day as I cleared up after the sludge fell out of me. A beer that smells and tastes like a toilet block isn’t my normal drink, but you only live once, don’t you?
