vinøs smag af malt, korn og halm. Gylden, klar, hvidt, tæt, kort og skum.
let sød og let bitter. Føles let, tør og livlig. oh6gdx (26485) - Vasa, FINLAND - OCT 22, 2010

, Golden colour, not much head. Aroma is fruits, wooden earth and some spices, alcohol and malts. Pleasant. Flavour is quite simiilar, rather sweet, but still
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a medium sized head of foamy finely sized white colored bubbles that were mostly lasting and left behind a strongly carbonated hazy with floating yeast chunks orange brown colored body and a good lacing. The bubbly aroma was yeasty and musty. The mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start and at the finish. The flavor contained notes of mild citrus yeast and mildly vinous. A decent one that I would consider drinking again. Dorwart (2609) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - MAY 21, 2010
Decent sized head of white bubbles and light carbonation. Aroma is a bit on the skunky side with some cardboard, light fruit and candy sugar. Color is a hazy dark orange. Light and fruity flavor with some sweet malts, sugar and a touchof yeast. Flavor is better than expected based on the aroma but is still not very good for a belgian strong ale. Finishes, sweet and sticky. Would not recommend. AmEricanbrew (7011) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - APR 8, 2010
Clear orange yellow color with white foam. Nice Christmas spicy sweet aromas. medium body. Decent lightly spiced, earthy fruity pale malt flavors. 33cl bottle

750ml bottle. Poured a hazy goldish amber with a thick fine bubbled white head. Smells of sweet malt and candy sugar, along with banana, cherry and apple with some slight alcohol. Fruits are everywhere on the initial taste, but are toned down quickly to leave a dry and surprisingly balanced beer. Not too sweet, as the aroma would suggest. This is a tasty brew and makes for a decent Christmas beer. corby112 (2813) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 18, 2010
Pours a cloudy dark amber/orange color with golden orange hues and a two finger bubbly white head that slowly settles into a lasting cap. Sporadic spots of lacing.
Slightly earthy spicy aroma with lots of estery Belgian yeast notes. Hints of light fruit especially apple, pear and strawberry. Peppery zest and spice with cinnamon, Christmas pastr, earthy grass and subtle hops.
Highly carbonated up front with a slightly creamy and very earthy medium body. Lots of dry earthy grass(hemp?) notes followed by subtle malt backbone with plenty of estery Belgian yeast and candy sugar. Hints of apple, pear and berry with lots of sharp and dry spicy, peppery character. Also, a good bit of Christmas cake ans slight alcohol. Dry finish.

750ml bottle shared at a tasting thanks to Arbitrator on BA. Pours a mostly clear orangish-golden color with a fairly large off-white head that lasts. Aroma is sweet malt, spices, and candi sugar. Smells Christmasy and Belgian for sure. Flavor is very malty and sweet with caramel, bready notes, caramel, honey, and spice. Smooth on the palate with medium body and soft carbonation. Pretty nice beer overall. jredmond (8644) - New York, New York, USA - JAN 12, 2010
Bottle split with Dallas. Pours a slightly hazy orange body. Aroma is sharp malt. Taste is basic malt, not a ton of flavor - the aroma is significantly better than the taste. DeputyAndy (636) - Ambler, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 12, 2010
