petewhitley (519) - 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 (282) - 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 (1083) - 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.

bonkiedeaap (634) - Leerdam, NETHERLANDS - JAN 3, 2015
Bottle from Dranken Verheyen in Poppel. The beer is amber colored and has a long staying small white head, with average carbonation. The beer has an aroma with tones of spices, fruits and hops. The taste is a little sweet with tones of candy sugar and some some hoppy bitterness in the background. The finish is a little dry and medium bitter. Not what I expect from a Christmas Ale. I miss the warming alcohol and the full body.

33cl bottle. Clear amber colour with a thick white head. Peach, yeast and caramel in the aroma. Average carbonation and medium body. Taste is a bit boring more on the sweet side. Overall, a nice beer but hardly for Christmas.
