Pours a light orangey golden with a generous white head. Clean light malt and spices on the nose. Light bodied in the mouth with delicate ginger and some vanilla notes. Little trace of alcohol, some sweetness. Good.

Bouteille achetée Au Grain d’Orge - De couleur ambrée orangée avec une magnifique mousse blanche crémeuse - Au nez des arômes de miel, légèrement épicée, une bonne présence de levure et de malt, assez peu épicée pour une bière de noël - En bouche une bière douce et mieleuse, légèrement épicée avec un bon corp malté, une touche d’alcool, une bouche égale au nez sans surprise - Corp moyen, amertume légère, carbonation vivante, douce, final mieleuse et épicée - une bière de noël légère et pas trop épicée, sympathique

Bambam57 (9) - FRANCE - OCT 24, 2015 does not count
Annee 2015 (etiquette verte). Assez crémeuse, goût de miel et fruité ,assez faible en epices pour une bière de Noël belge. J’ai étais surpris, mais pas positivement.

kajser27 (645) - Zagreb, CROATIA - OCT 19, 2015
Amber colored, hazy, strong off white creamy lasting head. Aroma is fruity marmalade, some yeast, spice, touch of cardboard. Taste is medium sweet caramel, candy sugar, honey, marmalade, some spice and yeast, bit of grains, again cardboard notes, bready finish. Medium bodied, average carbonation. Disappointing one...

gEUS (1583) - Linden, BELGIUM - APR 29, 2015
bottle at hme. Pours cloudy dark yellow with an orange hue and a more or less steady thin head.Sweet malts in the nos eand some yeast and spices, all a bit dull and characterless. Medium body, quite round indeed but no real outspoken characteristics except for the light malt touch. Taste is not particularly there, it’s all kind of bland.

a_cross (639) - Poole, Dorset, ENGLAND - FEB 21, 2015
Cloudy slab of dull orange, thin white head of tiny bubbles; aroma of candy, banana and yeast; first up is sweet fruit - banana, oranges - and toffee; then spice, a touch of cinnamon perhaps; a long sweet and spicy finish with much yeast; prickles the tongue; straightforward, steady mid-strenth belgian.

*Old rating, best before 25/10/09. Malzig-fruchtiges, tiefes Bier. Etwas erdig, malzig ohne zu süß zu sein, leichte Herbe im Nachgeschmack.
