77ships (4882) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - NOV 8, 2013
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.

Pours clear golden with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, wheat, yeast, sugar and fruits. Taste is medium sweet and light bitter with a long fruit and dry finish. Body is medium, texture is thin to oily, carbonation is soft.

Only blond christmas beer... Better make it a good one then, fitting the season. Unfortunately this idea failed.

ShivanDragon (2017) - Leeuwarden, NETHERLANDS - NOV 30, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 19, 2012 licht geel/gouden kleur, witter kraag die vrij snel verdwenen is.
aroma van bloemen, parfum, kruiden en wijn.
smaak van peper, citrus, koriander en lichte wijn.
vrij lichte body met een te beperkte smaakevolutie van een kerst bier, afdronk droog
over het algemeen een vrij matig kerstbier
