3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Yamaichi. Light yeastiness, pureed fruit, some spice. Lightly hazy golden/amber color, thin head. Mild sweet fruity initial / some oxidation and then sugar / a small acidic note, and then it simpers down into tiny sweetness in finish. Medium body, slight astringency. Okay.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
25cl Bottle from Lost Property. Clear golden colour, white head. Aroma is quite malty, cake, bread, coups be imagination but I found it Christmassy in a way, fruity esters. Flavour is malts, bread, cake, a hint of alcohol and fruity tartness, grape, light spicy, light-tart/bitter finish. Light to medium-bodied. Nice beer IMHO.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
250ml bottle, pours golden brown with a foamy billowy white head over a clear golden body. On pouring, the nostrils receive a healthy banana aroma. In the mouth it’s more refined, with additional belgian yeast aromas and caramel. The finish is balanced, short and crisp. Very decent blonde Belgian ale,

Bottle at home. Golden amber colour. Farmyard aroma but not unpleasant. Very subtle, vanilla with a gentle sourness, soft and fruity with a hint of the aroma in the taste. Unusual Christmas blonde, very drinkable.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
1998 Vintage. 25 cl. bottle (bottle states 25 cl. / 33 cl. oddly but looks like 25 cl. to me) sampled @ Kulminator as “Noël Chirstmas Weihnacht”. Golden amber with little white head. Nose is oxidized but in a solid way, sticky toffee, caramel, lots of sugar, very simple but holding up very well considering the age with some light dust. Taste is similar, oxidation but well, sweet caramel, toffee, simple brown sugar, dusty (but restrained), syrup, sticky, pretty boozy with an almost cognac edge to it,.. Syrupy, sticky, little carb. Pretty simple but has survived well, probably thx to it sugary simplicity. Solid enough still.
