0,5L Bottle from local supermarket. - Pours a pale red colour. Aroma has toffee, caramel and toasted bread. Slight dark fruits. Flavor is very fruity with much of the same as in the aroma. Very nice for a store-bought christmas beer. Florya (2023) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 27, 2015
How : bottle Appearance : spice, herbs, floral, citrus and caramel. Palate : medium to light body, average to low carbonation. Nonshaugen (613) - Fetsund, NORWAY - NOV 22, 2015
50 cl bottle, 2015 vintage. Quite clear dark orange, thin off-white head. Spicy aroma, cinnamon up front, and you know it’s soon Christmas eve :-) Taste is all spices and herbs, cinnamon and ginger, and it’s sweet but citrusy at the same time. Mouthfeel is a bit on the dry side, due to the citrus. If you like spicy beers, this is all yours. kokkenrolv (348) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 22, 2015

Bottle 50 cl.Holmen1 (5885) - Stavanger, NORWAY - APR 6, 2015
Clear amber, off-white head. Moderate malty, spices and caramel. Sweet and medium bitter, long and spiced.
Flaske delt med Willy på brygga 2.påskedag: lett uklar brunlig ravfarge med krydderaroma (og et aldri så lite snev av røykmalt?). Krydder (ingefær, kardemomme og en knivsodd nellik) dominerer smaken. Vi savner maltrkopp til å balansere dette, blir for tynn i kroppen og noe vandig i avslutningen. Jula varte dessverre ikke helt til påske denne gangen. tfredvik (1941) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 11, 2015
Pours a slightly hazy amber body with an off-white, long-lived head that ends up as a thin layer, excellent lacing. Quite strong aroma of juniper berries, sweet fruits and hay. Pretty strong flavour of juniper berries, spices, pine, faint fruits and citrus in the back, and vague hints of smoke. Light sweet and light bitter taste. Light body, dry and with a moderate carbonation. Very nice! Akilles047 (24) - - JAN 7, 2015
[50 cl bottle, enjoyed 2 years before BB date, from ICA Ullevål, Oslo]
Pours white-brown head, disappearing within second. Tastes a very slight amount of citric fruits. Nothing exciting about this beer.
