sebletitje (6341) - Enghien, BELGIUM - DEC 16, 2012
Bottle sample @ 18de Kerstbierfestival, Essen 2012. Couleur cuivrée, col beige tirant vers un café au lait, le tout laisse un filament huileux doré au verre. Arôme est très agréable, pointe boisé de chêne avec ce bouquet de Bordeaux donnant des notes vineuses, raisins / prunes fermentés et certaine douceur de vin. Palais est malté, caramel avec un boisé chêne donnant une fine note d’épice boisée, le tout garde une très belle balance entre fruits rouge/noirs, vin de Bordeaux et une très fine amertume. Le tout surfe entre un fruité prune sucrée, et raisin avec un chêne qui est judicieusement mis en usage. Vraiment très bien réalisée, belle balance sans vraiment avoir trop peu ni de trop de la barrique et du vin. La bière de base est déjà solide, et ici, cette dernière prend une toute autre dimension.

JanLaursen (2731) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 13, 2012
Bottle, 75 cl. Slighty hazy mahogony with frothy tan head, good retention. Nose of dried fruits, peppercorn, yeast, fruity berries. Taste is sweet, ripe fruity - dates, abricots - sulphor yeasty with a woody, light tannish, liqueur-like, light boozy finish. Full bodied, sophistacated palate, definitely above average.

Papsoe (25094) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - DEC 13, 2012
Bottle 75 cl. Courtesy of yespr. Pours a hazy, reddish brown with a dense off-white head. Rather sophisticated aroma, clearly oaky but also with a herbal balsamico tint to it. Rich body, interesting base of overripe fruit, oak, spices and then again the slight tartness. Hardly any bitterness. Different. 131212
