En typisk belgisk alesmag, altså smagen af gæren. Der er ikke alle de typiske juleting i denne øl, hvilket er godt!

Fruchtig und fluffig mit einer ordentlichen Perlung, viel Vanille, belgischer Hefe und Hopfen. Recht dick, süßlich, vernünftige Stärke gepaart mit etwas Karamell. Nicht schlecht.

Beautiful rough frothy ale which secrete a good aroma of spicy hops. The taste is not quite as expected soft and fine like a typical blonde ale, but it is more pronounced spiciness of something that I think reminiscent of orange peel and apricot. Good fruit sweetness that never takes too much.

petewhitley (479) - Nagoya, JAPAN - MAR 28, 2015
spruce, citrus, floral, orange, cloudy, rocky head, medium sweetness, lightly sour, medium body, sticky. Deep orange, cloudy with a substantial rocky head of foam. Spicy, hoppy aroma. Sweet, fruity taste. Quite sticky on the lips, almost distractingly so. Overall a very nice beer to sip on, but the sweetness/stickiness would prevent me from asking for another.

didierlewallon (270) - ponferrada, SPAIN - MAR 14, 2015
Es una cerveza de color rubia cobriza con una espuma blanca. El aroma es suave, dulce y afrutado, con toque de especias, de vainilla y de levadura. El sabor es afrutado con notas de levadura y de malta, el final de boca es seco y dulce con nota de lúpulo, termina con amargor ligero, cerveza refrescante, no parece una cerveza de navidad.

DraftDodger (839) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 18, 2015
Copenhagen 13/11 2014. 75 cl bottle from FaktaQuick. Pours clear reddish brown with white head. Dissipates rather quickly. Spicy malty aroma tinged with alcohol. Medium carbonation. Intense sweet taste in the traditional yeasty Belgian style with a little sourness especially in the aftertaste. Good Belgian Christmas beer.
