hints of dried fruits, but overall a very yeasty flavor. Not as strong or heavy as most christmas ales.

33 cl bottle, 7.5%, drank at a christmas market, pours as an clear amber with a nice white head. Mild aroma that is slightly sweet. Taste is a little alcoholicy but remains smooth. I enjoyed it and the free cheese it was served with.

PapaVillum (834) - Valby, DENMARK - NOV 14, 2013
75 cl, flaske, 7,0 %, købt i Fakta på Peter Bangsvej på Frederiksberg, 14. november 2013. Klar karamel-farvet belgisk juleøl med offwhite-skumkrone på 3-4 cm tykkelse. Ikke fin krone med medium størrelse bobler. Skummet minimeres efter et par minutter. Øllet dufter af banan, belgisk gær og krydderier, men iøvrigt henad typiske Triple'r. Den balancerer fint med sødme og bitterhed, men er mere krydret og slutter mere bittert end Tongerlo's gode Tripel. Indtrykket af mundfølelsen er middelgodt, men kulsyreindholdet er lidt over middel. Ville foretrække, det skruet lidt ned. Denne "jule-Triple" er lidt mere dyb og krydret end "helårs-modellen", men specielt jule't ved jeg ikke, om den er... Kan vel drikkes hele året. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Defreni (2945) - Husum, DENMARK - NOV 9, 2013
Flaske: Brunrød klar øl med et flot skumhoved. Duft af belgisk gær, sukker og en smule metal som der nogle gange er på disse øl. Smagen er let krydret men faktisk forholdsvis drikbar. Udmærket øl.

75 cl bottle 7.0% abv. Amber colour, sweet alcoholic aroma. Taste is sweet with caramel and alcohol heat. Pretty boring, will store some bottles for next xmas and see if the bottle fermentation does any wonders.

77ships (7353) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - SEP 5, 2013
33 cl. bottle @ home. Procured from ALBO. Bottled on 30/08/2012 thus 2012 Vintage. Pours surprisingly a bright amber, bubbles rising and a big soapy white head that quickly descends. Smells of esters, slightly floral, candy sugar with some industrial soap sweetness in there plus a chunk of banana. Taste is bitter esters, floral, slightly phenolic, hint grass, very bubbly, something akin to sweetish cheap grainy alcohol, touch banana and hint of honey in the back followed by warming & noticeable booze, hint chemical / soapy. Very effervescent, very dominating fact over the taste. Why does this feel so boozy, its 6.5 % ABV? Unbalanced, faulty, raw Belgian. Why is this labelled as a Christmas beer? Feels like they are trying to fool people or something.
