hopdog (9327) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 12, 2004
Poured a medium hazy amber color with a small off-white head. Small particles. Strong spicy & malty aromas with citris undertones. Tastes of oranges & spices. Sweet with a light bitter after taste.

fiulijn (15410) - 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 (5319) - 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 (5910) - 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 (613) - 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.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 13/20
sayravai (4673) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 12, 2003
UPDATED: DEC 2, 2005 (Bottled) Golden color with a medium head. Sweetish, slightly sour, banana-fruity berry aroma. Grainy-malty, a bit papery flavor with some spiciness and a fading, dryish finish. Medium-bodied, foamy-carbonated palate. A quite boring Belgian.

diabel (1614) - Aarschot, BELGIUM - NOV 26, 2003
Bottled. Blond, golden colour. Little treble with white head. Malt and spicy aroma. A spicy and alcoholic aroma. A little bit Duvel-like.

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 11/20
JorisPPattyn (8120) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - NOV 22, 2003
Amber/orange; fluffy, yellowish head. Herbal nose, crystal malt, meaty and yeasty, however filtered. Honey-ish taste, with a harsh bitter edge; a herbal concoction from the pharmacy. Syrupy mouthfeel, again meaty impression. This is not exactly my favourite. Beer of very weak quality, tastewise.

bierkoning (10721) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - JUL 7, 2003
Amber orange color, small head. Malty, hoppy flowery aroma. Sweet hoppy perfumed flavor with a hint of tartness. Nice, but maybe a bit simple.

Dalle (1145) - Skørping, DENMARK - JUN 29, 2003
Small light head. Dark golden body. Aroma; seet, fruit, yeast. Taste; sweet, fruit (orange). Medium body.
