0.75 bottle. Hazy, light brown color and a medium-sized, white head of good retention on top. Aroma is sweet with the typical Belgian yeasts in the forefront as well as some spices and plenty of candied sugar. Very sweet taste, sugary all the way with what one could call an amalgam of "christmassy" spices. Medium body, oily texture, and soft carbonation manifesting itself mostly during swallowing. Overall the beer is pretty tasty and drinkable but it could be less sweet while retaining the same flavor, as of now it feels rather saccharine.

Amber colour with way too much foam which stays for a long time. Aroma is sugary, some spices, malts. Taste is quite sweet with a malty touch. Slightly bitter and dry at the end.

Mooi kerstbier, iets bitter met vol kruidig aroma. Mooie kleur, slaat niet dood in het glas.

OK Belgian ale, but I’d love to see fuller body and fresher after bitterness.

maekchu (3044) - Hirakata, JAPAN - DEC 25, 2013
Bottle from AEON Mall Kumiyama. Candi sugar aroma, with plenty of spice, and medium maltiness. Light orange-amber color. Sweet candyish malty initial / sugar, with a touch of nutmeg and cinnamon in mid / finish is a bit rough and overly sweet. Thin-medium body. Lightened up with corn. Okay, but a little too cloying. Final is unsatisfying.

Abijen (2243) - ’s-Hertogenbosch, NETHERLANDS - DEC 23, 2013
Pours a copper clear beer with a good white head. Smells malts, yeast and caramel. Tastes flat, malts and licorice. Thin body, watery texture and an average carbo.

UPDATED: DEC 15, 2015 Heldere oranje koper kleur met een aardige kraag. Zoetige geur met iets caramel. Smaakt lekker zoet. Goed te drinken.

Niet zo sterke geur. Lekker fris, gelukkig maar want her is bloedheet bij de pubquiz. Donker koper, dun maar dekkend schuim.
