[On tap - Blindtasting at Pegasus.] First impression was Poperinge Hommelbier and I did not accept, that is was a belgo x-mas beer, due to the lack of spices. Lots of hops and heavy fruits in the triple way. Some dust and horse. Fresh and nice!

Oscbert (1194) - 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 (970) - 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

Beerdrinker79 (1867) - Idaho, USA - DEC 26, 2015
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.

Rune (10010) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 21, 2015
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).

Look; huge off white head, clear golden body. Aroma; pale malts, yeast, apple cream, dusty floral hops. Taste; soft hops, fruity caramel, syrup, grains - leading to a barley dusty finish. Palate; ok. Overall; it’s an ale, but xmas?? [33cl btl abv7.2%, BB.3.12.2016, B@Vinmonopolet]

Not what I combine with a Christmas beer. The taste disappears after a short time. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
