Delirium (636) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 27, 2012
UPDATED: OCT 29, 2012 Bottle. Pours slightly hazy amber, with a foamy, disappearing white head. Aroma and flavor are fruit, orange peel, bit of caramel, yeast, and mild hopping. Moderately sweet. Doesn’t seem particularly christmasy, but it’s fine as a Belgian ale.

ARMed (625) - 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.

Ysok02 (623) - MOns, BELGIUM - DEC 14, 2015
Robe ambrée, mousse peu abondante. Nez discret sur les fruits mûrs et les épices. Bouche souple, fraîche, légèrement fruitée, matière discrète et finale moyennement complexe. Une bière assez banale.

bonkiedeaap (534) - 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.

Pours a hazy amber color with an off-white head. Aroma of malts, citrus fruits, yeast and spices. Flavors of malts, herbs, fruits as some lemons, yeasts and spices. Good carbonation, bitter dry, with a bit of a smokey finish. Not what I expected for a Xmas brew.
