KnutAlbert (6339) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 25, 2007
It says blonde on the bottle, but it is bordering on ambré. Nice and spicy, including vanilla. But the label says maize, too, which makes my alarm bells ring. I doubt there is real vanilla, too. Minus for cheating!

MoritzF (8676) - Bochum, GERMANY - JUL 19, 2007
(33cl bottle) Hazy, golden colour with a fluffy, slowly lacing, tanned foamy head. Moderately sweet malty, yeasty and fruity aroma. Sweet and slightly bitter flavour, malty and yeasty, subtle honey-fruity taste with a rather slim body; slightly fizzy on the palate; sweet and yeasty bitter finish with a tinge of alcohol.

Lubiere (10721) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 14, 2007
A lightly hazed golden orange ale with a thick creamy big bubbled white head. Aroma of caramel, light orange peels, and coriander. In mouth, a very pleasant sweet malt, with notes of hops and curacao, medium bodied. Bieropholie import. BB 28-01-08

leaparsons (8637) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 22, 2007
Bottle. Golden brown with a small foam. Aromas are caramel malts with brown sugar and spices. Flavours are crystalised sugar with caramel. Quite soft. Has a decent foaming palate. OK.

beerbuzzmontreal (3490) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 27, 2007
Clear golden pour with yeast in suspension and a medium white head. The aroma is dominated by a strong and peppery yeast. The flavor is also focused on the peppery yeast, there are some spices and sweetness too but they’re backstage, allowing the yeast to do the show. The body is medium with a creamy texture and moderate carbonation. It’s not a bad beer but it’s nothing like a Christmas beer.

Glouglouburp (6104) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 19, 2007
UPDATED: AUG 26, 2008 Almost clear golden body topped by a large-bubbles-filled large white head with medium retention. Aroma of spices and synthetic pine-tree (like Pine Sol or something). Large amount of peppery spices leaving an overall impression of minerals. Some sweet malts and some fruity notes (apple and orange peels) and dominated by the peppery spices. Medium oily body with a lively carbonation. Finish is oily and peppery and yes, Pine Sol. Not very good but certainly not boring. I’ve had many Christmas beers in my life and this one is as true to the Christmas tradition as… eh… Hanukkah.
