yngwie (13575) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 19, 2012
Bottle, 75cl corked. It’s a more or less clear one, dark golden in color and with a dense, two-finger off-white head. Sugary, caramel-ish aroma with a generic fruityness and some spiced notes. Cinnamo and cloves it seems. The flavor has a touch of something cellar like, with caramel, spice notes, white sugar and a fruityness. Medium body, a bit effervescent. Lasting sugary and caramel finish with a touch of spices. A quite decent beer, but rather boring, especially as a Christmas beer. 121219

argo0 (11535) - Washington DC, USA - MAR 6, 2003
Clear orange body (though it becomes cloudy at the end of the pour) with small white head. Aroma is sweet -- orange and butterscotch. Taste is moderately sweet, mostly orange. Also some yeast and spice, and a hint of alcohol. Beer is much improved in the second pour -- most of the flavor seems to have sunk to the bottom of the bottle.

Tap @ YNWA, Kolding. Pours a clear golden with a small creamy white head. Aroma is sweet malty with a slight dose of spicyness. Quite full and round mouthfeel. Sweet taste with flavours of ginger, anise and vanilla. Nice and good - quite refreshing for a Belgian Christmas beer.
