COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Unfiltered.
The first Christmas beer produced by Thiriez since 1997. Fewer hops than the Blonde; lightly toasted malts for color, and a hint of spice.

April 4, 2014. 750mL bottle at barvolo. Barley flavour. Very smooth, lovely mouthfeel. Nice balance, lovely finish. Dark amber with white head.

Pours hazy amber. Aroma of brown sugar, malt. Yeasty. Taste sweet (caramel) and greenish, well-balanced. Lack of body and short finish make this beer a bit boring though.

The color was beautiful and classic. The aromas were funky and amazing, like sundried tomatos with malt. This beer showed true finesse, and was extremely freindly on the palate.

Got this bottle from France (0,75). And I am very surprised. Most tasty beer I tasted in years. Very roasty taste with dried fruits. Malty and long taste. I had this in my mouth for hours.

Not a Biere de Garde. Great character of munich malts. Bitter. Less well balanced than the blond
