Nekronos (3603) - Xalapa, MEXICO - DEC 23, 2005
UPDATED: APR 30, 2006 Was a little different in name. So, maybe can be difficult to find here. It was a little soft, but very good in flavour. Dark too.

Bottle. Creamy white excellent fully lasting head. Yellow colour. Light malty heavy hoppy aroma. Orange notes. Fruity and citrus anis notes in heavy bitter flavor. Long nice finish. Creamy palate. I think this is close to a trippel!

BeerBiker (1412) - Odense, DENMARK - NOV 14, 2009
[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!

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.

Grzesiek79 (2966) - Radom, POLAND - FEB 16, 2014
Dobre i chmielne, nieco cytrusowe w zapachu, przypominalo mi amerykanskie pale ale, byc moze dodano tu chmielu rodem z USA. Niewielka piana, zlocisty kolor, brak drozdzowego osadu. Delikatne i lekkie, co dziwi przy wyzszym stezeniu alkocholu.

jerohen (1962) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - JAN 30, 2004
Bottled, BB 05-2003. Clear golden coloured, beautiful big head (at least in my champagne glass). Aroma of a sweet white wine, but with less alcohol. Quite nice actually. Sweet malty flavour. I liked this one.
