Alengrin (3019) - BELGIUM - DEC 15, 2014
Tasted many years ago, so this rating is from old notes; amber coloured, hazy beer with medium thick, yellowish white head; yeasty and caramelly, some peachy and slightly orangey fruitiness, sweetish, malt sweet with spicy hints and mild herbal hop bitterish finish, a bit metallic. Didn’t like it that much and this is not what you’d expect from a Belgian Christmas ale, but it’s about time for a re-rating now that Christmas is coming - hopefully it has improved meanwhile.

KyotoLefty (7337) - Kyoto, JAPAN - DEC 14, 2014
Bottle from Aeon Liquors. Spicy, somewhatnhoppy nose, grass, lemon, sugar, orange. Hazy orange-brown with a medium tall head. Sweet, biscuity, lemons and orange, bit metallic, decently prickly and bitter finish. Not so special or particularly Christmasy, but ok.

KansaiBeerLvrs (2865) - Kyoto, JAPAN - DEC 11, 2014
Bottle from Asahiya served in a chalice type glass. The nose is bready, a bit fruity & spicy but has a rough grainy character to it. It pours a clear amber with a soapy off-white head. The body is med-light with a rough round carbonation. The taste is fruity but with a metallic malty caramel edge to it. Average.

Syfher (194) - Brussels, BELGIUM - DEC 3, 2014
Bottle of 25 cl, in a Trappist Glass. Nice beer, but not a very special one. So we’re in front of a heavy taste beer, but with no spice in. Try it, but don’t pay for it.

mjik83 (859) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - NOV 26, 2014
33cl flesje via Mans, Margraten Alcoholpercentage van 7% Uitgeschonken in Grimbergen glas Uiterlijk: robijnrood/amber kleurig met kleine schuimkraag Aroma en smaak: abrikoos, zoetig, fruitig, Belgische gist Conclusie: niet zo kruidig als normaal bij een kerstbier, zou niet zeggen dat het zo'n type bier was zonder het te weten. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

PeatyPete (481) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 14, 2014
Amber coloured beer with extreme foam production. Light aroma of cane sugar and malt. Taste is sweet malt. A bit like barley wine.

mikske79 (1285) - Puerto Plata, DOMINICAN REPUBLIC - AUG 16, 2014
Geen slecht bier, maar als ik een kerstbier koop, verwacht ik een bier met heel veel smaak aan en dat was hier niet helemaal

ogreface (1390) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAY 9, 2014
Világos sárgásbarna, kicsit zavaros, habja piszkosfehér, igen nagy, buborékos, laza szerkezetű de kitartó. Íze és illata is tipikus átlag belga ale, talán az lehet benne karácsonyi, hogy egy kicsit fűszeresebb és a vége olyan, mint a grapefruit héj. Nem rossz, de semmi különös.
