Pinball (11408) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 31, 2009
33cl bottle, brown and green label, 7% called christmas blond, double blond abbay beer. i hope it is the same as this one here. pours cloudy orange. lively beer but didn’t get out of the bottle itself. large head that soon collapses. aroma of yeast, cheese, spices, alc. faint citric fruity note keeps it interesting. flavor is rather average or below average for a belgian beer, but it does taste good. nice harmfull blonde with no strings attached. end is very non-bitter, almost as if something is missing.

fiulijn (16428) - 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.

Geen slecht bier, maar als ik een kerstbier koop, verwacht ik een bier met heel veel smaak aan en dat was hier niet helemaal
