25 cL bottle, Kerstbierfestival 2007 in Essen/Belgium as #78 Noël/Christmas/Weihnacht. Pours clear and golden yellow with a lacing white head. Slight mouldy aroma. Flavour is sweet malty with a little metallic edge. Ends with a mellow yeasty and mild mouldy note. Nice but close to mediocre.

Ungstrup (29665) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 14, 2005
An amber beer with a nice off-white head. The is quite complex, with notes of spices, coriander, yeast, caramel, wood, as well as slight alcohol. The flavor is a bit dusty, form the spices, where coriander are most dominant, but it also contains notes of yeast and caramel, the dustyness keeps on being present thruout giving it a dry end. After awhile the alcohol burns thru leaving some warmth.

Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 22, 2005
(Bottle 25 cl) Golden beer with a nice, white head. Sweetish in the beginning but a fruity freshness balances thing very well. Not very full-bodied or bitter. Another very unusual Belgian Christmas beer - nice that they vary so much in style. 260198

oh6gdx (20827) - 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.

fiulijn (15060) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 3, 2004
Golden color. Grass aroma, paper, plastic, salame. Strong body, but too grassy, non interesting. Not really aromatic, but at least strong final.
Unexpected bad beer, by Verhaeghe!
