Une bière de Noël blonde à faible titrage alcoolique (7,2 % Abv), j’aurais dû me méfier. Mais il ne faut jamais avoir d’idées préconçues. Brassée par Verhaeghe, la bière présente une robe jaune claire, avec une effervescence peu marquée et des bulles moyennes. La mousse quant à elle ne tient quasiment pas. Le nez est quelconque, marqué essentiellement sur le malt et la coriandre. La dégustation est déconcertante, l’attaque est quasi inexistante, très aqueuse, avec de petites notes sur le blé. Parvient ensuite une amertume très peu marquée, comme une sous-mélodie en arrière bouche sans avoir d’attaque franche et corpulente. Les arômes sont avant tout marqués sur le malt et très légèrement épicés. Sans intérêt. Quant au final…..celui-ci est toujours attendu ! En conclusion, Verhaeghe nous offre une bière de Noël qui n’en respecte pas les codes et qui est de surcroît insipide. Noël bien morne…. A offrir aux zythologues peu sages durant l’année !

330 ml bottle poured into a chalice. The beer is a lighter gold color with a white head of foam. Good retention. The aroma has ginger and clove notes with a supporting doughy bread note. Taste is more sweet than spice. Medium body and higher carbonation.

imdownthepub (13395) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 18, 2016
Bottled 330ml from Beermerchants of Kent. Gold with white head. There is a sweet, candy aroma which follows on into the beer, barley sugar mixed with pear drops. There is a strong Belgian yeast character, hints of banana essence and light herbs. Nothing really Christmassy about this but okay.

Oscbert (1253) - Sacramento, California, USA - JAN 16, 2016
Sweet candy like aroma, raisin, Belgian yeast spice Pours a light Amber color with small disappearing off white head. Sweet candy like flavor raisin and prune, light Belgian spice. Medium full bodied, sticky, medium co2, lingering sweetness in finish. Enjoyable beer. A bit on the sweet side. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Silvan7 (1106) - Samarate, ITALY - JAN 9, 2016
Bottle @ home.ambrata limpida. Schiuma bianca non troppo fine ne persistente. Aroma poco intenso ma fine. Fruttato di pesca sciroppata, miele di castagna e arancia candita. Speziato di zenzero. Esteri del lievito belga. Dolce abboccato quasi amabile il gusto. Acidula. Per nulla amara,nemmeno nel finale. Leggerissima tostatura. Corposa carbonata, poco calda, molto rotonda. Abbastanza equilibrata manca di un po’ del gusto deciso delle birre delle Fiandre. Armonica

11.2 oz bottle, thanks Poisoneddwarf- Pours beery copper golden with a white head that mostly holds. Aroma is European, grains, floral, generic beer. The taste is grains, crystal malt, faint bubble gum, floral, pretty generic, European lager flavor, but really no major off notes.
