Jeppe (2631) - Ølbutikken, DENMARK - JAN 6, 2005
Clear orange colored, fizzy off-white head. Yeast and fruit penetrates the aroma with tones of straw. Quite sweet and syrupy. Flavor is bittersweet malty and hayish with sweet fruity notes and a touch of alcohol. The taste is all right, but generally I find these blonds to sharp and rather unbalanced. It is probably just not my style of beer.....

Hazy orange-brown color with lots of CO2. Good foamy off-white head, lace. Aroma is malty, slightly fruity with grapefruit and raisins. Carbonated, quite dry mouthfeel. Quite thin bodied with hints of toffee, malts and alcohol. Dry oaky finish.

Bottled: Golden coloured. Dusty. Fluffy off white head. Yeast, fruit, malt and some spices in the aroma. Not very distinct, but still pleasant. Flavour is fruity, sweet, yeasty, and has a nice touch of berries. Is light bitter and fruity in the end. Smooth mouthfeel.

fiulijn (14381) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 29, 2004
Tongerlo Christmas Dubbel Blond
Gold color. Very simple aroma; the flavor as well is not really interesting; reasonable body strength, spicy (coriander), with a quite strong final bitterness; and clearly not a Christmas beer.

SilkTork (5216) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 12, 2004
Bottle Conditioned. BBE March 05. Fullish mouthfeel with some alcohol felt, but not dominant. A blonde ale. Yeasty flavours. Prickly carbonation. Decent quality, but not exciting.

jonas (5622) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - DEC 30, 2003
Anonymous nose. Amber, low head no carbonation. Mainly fruity flavors, especially banana ( and a little bit prunes), it actually got very close to a weissbier. Slightly vineous notes as well and with a herbal exit.

ARMed (598) - Garnet Valley, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 13, 2003
An exception Christmas Dubbel. Smooth fruity taste with a blond duppel taste. Clear orange color with a moderate white bubbly head. Poor lacing but a good flavor. Slightly hoppy but overall an exceptional ale.
