Slightly cloudy copper amber topped by a generous frothy head that lasts for a while. Spicy nose with hints of tart fruits (gooseberry). Full body, very nice malt palate, a bit of spice with the wood showing a bit in the end in great balance, never overshadowing this great beer. Some herbs gets involves as well as it warms up, I identified it as thyme. Long malty and herbaceous finish. Great beeer!

Pours a murky brow with billowy white head that laces in chunks. Nose & taste are of spice, oak, bitter sweet dark fruits. Very smooth very drinkable. Interesting beer, I’m definitely a fan! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Amber colored pour. Big fluffy off-white head. Plenty of lacing as the head slowly fades away - it almost lasts the entire drink. Spicy aroma of flowers pepper and malt. Taste is different. A musty flavor of dirt and sugar. The mustiness sticks around well after each sip. A residual bitterness as well. Not sure if the musty flavor is from the spices or something else. But it is none to pleasant. Only thing wrong with this.

On tap at Brugs Beertje last Christmas. I drank plenty of this during my 3 night stay. A hazy/dark amber coloured pour with a medium beige head on top. Typical sweet Belgian yeasty aroma. Tastes sweet, fruity, malty, spice, caramel, cinammon. Nice and complex. A quality Belgian Christmas beer.

Bottle. Brown and poured with a big head.Some maltiness which lingered for a long time. Straightforward with little complexity but still very interesting.

Tap. Pours deep copper with average white head; short retention and decent lacing. Aroma is yeast, cookie malt, pears, spice, and light grassy hops. Flavor is heavy malt, faint hops, and average fruit esters; slightly sweet finish. Medium body, carbonation, and warmth.
