Medium yellow and clear colour. Creamy off-white head, mostly lasting. Aroma is light bread, caramel and lactic-acid. The lactic is not so good.

FrankJohansen (3616) - Sabro, DENMARK - NOV 13, 2006
Bottle. Golden colour with a nice white head and a good lacing. Weak aroma and taste of malts and hops. Boring christmas beer.

janubio (689) - SPAIN - JUL 17, 2006
UPDATED: SEP 22, 2006 Bottle, 25 cl. . Golden colour with small head that does not last much. Smells very sweet, I would say artificial, and maybe some fruit, a littel winey but after a little while is only a metallic or oxid aroma. Taste is again artificially sweet and very metallic. Metallic is the main aroma and taste. Dissapointing, plus I can’t find any of the christmas beers features.

Boutip (5833) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 1, 2006
Bottle: Poured a bright golden color ale with a small pure white foamy head with good retention. Aroma is incredibly sweet – like if they had drop an extra bag of candi sugar – and doesn’t provide me with any enjoyment. Taste is also totally sweet and gross – a bit like a cough syrup with extra glucose. Body is very average and alcohol is well hidden. Probably one of the worse Christmas Belgian that I’ve tried.

oh6gdx (25141) - Vasa, FINLAND - APR 22, 2006
Bottled 1996. Honeyish golden colour, longlasting big foamy white head. Aroma is honey, fruit, yeast and malts. Very pleasant and smoothly mixed aroma. Very bitterish to the flavour, along with grassy and slightly acidic hints. Alcohol gives a warming kick in the finish and aftertaste. The flavour wasn’t as good as the promising aroma.

harrisoni (17146) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - APR 11, 2006
Bottle. Gold, thin white head. Hop, citrus and bubblegum aroma. Quite light in mouth, with bit of alcohol burn, syrupy fruit and hop on the end. Bit over carbonated. Plain but ok and oh not very Christmassy
