Bottle. Pours a clear amber, nice medium biege head that quickly goes down. Nose is a bit sweet but very dominated with spice- coriander. Flavor is dark fruits, coriander. Finish is quick and just a little dry. Smooth drinking.

Copenhagen 13/11 2014. 75 cl bottle from FaktaQuick. Pours clear reddish brown with white head. Dissipates rather quickly. Spicy malty aroma tinged with alcohol. Medium carbonation. Intense sweet taste in the traditional yeasty Belgian style with a little sourness especially in the aftertaste. Good Belgian Christmas beer.

Hazy amber beer with a small frothy head. Very fizzy, the representative called it a 'festive edition'. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ChristianHR (204) - DENMARK - DEC 6, 2013
Has a fresh citrusy hop aroma. Pours with a nice white fluffy head and a clear amber color. Tastes of roasted malts, caramel and a little hint of chocolate. The mouthfeel is sirupy and leaves the mouth sticky and dry with a little bitterness from the hops.

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

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.

Syfher (144) - Brussels, BELGIUM - DEC 3, 2014
Bottle of 25 cl, in a Trappist Glass. Nice beer, but not a very special one. So we’re in front of a heavy taste beer, but with no spice in. Try it, but don’t pay for it.
