Ungstrup (29170) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 8, 2003
A slightly cloudy orange beer with a fine very foamy head, but it disappears quite fast. It has a quity strong very nice aroma of fruit, yeast and oranges with notes of alcohol. The flavor is smooth with a good sweetness containing orange and yeast notes and ending on a slight very nice bitterness.

Papsoe (25089) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 16, 2005
(Bottle 33 cl) Dark golden with a soft and very lasting head. Very close to the "Tongelo Dubbel Blond" which must be the base of this with some minor alterations in the recipe. A lovely velvety soft mouthfeel and a less sharp bitterness. 261097

fiulijn (14350) - 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.
