vincentvega72 (217) - Terneuzen, NETHERLANDS - NOV 10, 2015
UPDATED: NOV 12, 2015 Roodbruin troebel bier. Mooie plakkerige schuimkraag. Beetje grassige smaak, heel zacht met een hoppig bittertje op het eind. Niet écht een typisch kerstbier maar zoals wel meer bij de la senne een bier met een twist (maar wel een lekkere twist)

erickok (4614) - Leuven, BELGIUM - NOV 7, 2015
Brown body, very stable head. Delicate yet wintery aromas with dark bready malts, light spice (clove), bit woody. Solidly hopped too /for the style) as expected from this brewer. Great stuff. Very balanced taste too, rich sipping at moderate abv. Certainly not too sweet. (33cl bottle from QV.ID)

SirLimpsalot (3119) - SWEDEN - NOV 3, 2015
@ Moeder Lambic 15-10-30: En ganska ordinär juleöl med tydlig kryddiga toner som så ofta blir allt för obalanserat.

DocLock (8956) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 12, 2015
330 cL bottle from Whole Foods PM. Pours turbid brownish ruby with 3-finger, frothy head. Nose is earthy vienna malt, vinous fruit, spice. Tastes malty, fruity, I dare say barleywiney, with some mild spice. Works OK as an X-mas ale, but works even better as a barleywine.

2014 Bottle from the brewery on the eurostar home
murky cola brown with beigish head collapsing to lacing. Fruity, slightly earthy and autolysis on nose. Full bodied, sweet plums with a dry mineral bitterness and slightly sticky Christmas cake finish with a nutmeg note
