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.

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

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
330ml bottle, many thanks to djoeye. Huge, bubbly, off-white head leaving crocheted lacing as it goes down. Bright golden body. Aroma of dusty hops, apples and yeast. Mixed taste of mild caramel, apples and a backdrop of cinnamon. Slight yeasty fruitiness to the ending. Silky mouth feel with warming alcohol. Pleasing without being great (Tromsø 18.12.2015).
