Danish: Jule Rikling fra Viborg Bryghus er brygget som en hyldest til hende, som hvert år gør december til noget helt specielt. Der findes en i hvert eneste hjem. En som pynter, bager, koger, pakker og sørger for alt – og alle, så juledagene bliver lige som de skal være, fyldt med varme og hygge. Fra Viborg Bryghus, en tak til alle julemødre – og fra Brygmesteren til en helt speciel.
Jule Rikling er lettere en traditionel julebryg. En klar ravrødlig ale med balanceret sødme og toner af appelsin og nelliker. Opskriften består overvejende af Munich Malt, samt Melanoidin, Carafa type 3 og Rug Malt. Humlen er Pioneer og First Gold og for at give ekstra aroma, lidt tørret appelsinskal.
Øl brygget af: Vand, bygmalt, rugmalt, humle, tørrede appelsinskaller og overgær.

The aroma is full of hops and orange peel. Very reminiscent of a pilsner. The taste the same. The color is caramel-like. Not a very interesting beer. Pretty plain and ordinary, as mentioned reminiscent of a pilsner.

KoNrRiI (1218) - Århus, DENMARK - FEB 10, 2014
0.5 bottle. Hazy, dark, crimson color with a brown hue to it, head is rather small but thick and creamy. Aroma of spices, fruits - mostly apples, and some malts; overall it is sour with a sweet note. Taste is also really sour with even less sweetness to counterpoise that despite the noticeable presence of sugars, unbalanced. Medium body, somewhat creamy texture, and average carbonation. Finish is more poised than the rest but still far from perfect. All in all the omnipresent sourness rather spoils the beer which was supposed to be a Christmas brew, one could expect a sugary or even tacky, spice-filled beer instead of a sour drink.

Bottle.Pours deep amber with an off-white head. Aroma of vegetables, malt, marzipan and some caramel. Flavor is sweet and cooked vegetables with some spices and malt. Medium body, average carbonation. Might be a nice beer but this one is ruined by the vegetable flavor and aroma.

yngwie (16506) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 19, 2013
Bottle. A more or less clear one, dark amber in color and with a dense, finger-thick off-white head on top. Green apples and almond essence in the aroma. Some maltyness too. The flavor is pretty much equally uninteresting, borderline bad, with lots of green apples, as well as almond essence, cooked vegetables and some dried fruiits. Medium body, decent carbonation. Lightly roasted finish with green apples and some bitterness. Definitely not a winner. 130119
