fonefan (48669) - VestJylland, DENMARK - SEP 4, 2006
Reddish brown colour with a small head. Nice light aroma of malt and spice, slightly sour. Malty flavour of sweetness, spice and ends up with a alcoholic finish.

yespr (44807) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - NOV 20, 2007
75 cL bottle. Pours hazy brown/orange and with a diminished off-white head. Spiced aroma. Flavour holds sweet malt, slight breadish and a mellow spice note. Sweet dried fruit. Ends with a smooth spice and fruity note. Nice but also somewhat off-balance.

Ungstrup (37292) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 27, 2003
A beutiful red beer with a beutiful head though the color gets unclear if you pour the yeast. The aroma is spicy with notes of cloves. The flavor is malt sweet (too sweet for me) with alcohol running over the tongue. It has a very low carbonation and the flavor is rather simple. An OK beer but too sweet.

joergen (27983) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 1, 2005
Draft at Fynske Øldage 2005. Clear red coloured with a small off white head. Acidic aroma with notes of dried fruits and malts. Sweet flavour of dried fruits with fruity notes.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 14, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 10, 2005 (Bottle 75 cl) The Abbaye d’Aulne beers used to be brewed by another brewery (I don’t remember which one) but are now made by Val de Sambre. The beer is chestnut brown, clear and appears filtered (possibly with a bit of sediment). Decent, slightly brownish head. Typically, fruity ale-character, nice nutty aroma with typical fullness and sweetness. An absolutely splendid christmas beer. 241203

3.2
omhper (24970) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - NOV 27, 2006
UPDATED: JAN 8, 2007 Bottled. Hazy mahogany colour, no head. Aroma of roasty malt and strawberry jam. Sweet with solid body and clean mouthfeel. Strawberry jam appears to be the one and only flavour. A straight forward very drinkable beer, where did the 9% go?

3.8
fiulijn (20411) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 5, 2004
Amber color; giant head. Malt nose, spices, banana. Quite sweet, but not too thick; caramel and spices; very light roasted malt. Good, easy, Christmas beer.
