hetyu (115) - - AUG 21, 2012
Bottle- Poured a cloudy brown color ale with an off-white foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of candi sugar and nice rich Belgian style malt is quite enjoyable. Taste is also a nice enough mix between candi sugar with some notes rich sweet Belgian malt and light dry figs. Body is full with limited filtration and great carbonation with no apparent alcohol.

Gehbe (297) - Vilnius, LITHUANIA - NOV 26, 2016
Clear amber brown with a huge beige head and nice lacing. Aroma of caramel, toast, strawberries, spice, candy, baguette crust, hints of zest and cooked bread. Tastes sweetish upfront, immediately followed up by carbonation sourness; light bitter notes on finish. Full body, high carbonation, smooth texture, not as sticky as expected, nice light warmth on finish. Amazing!

DraftDodger (1169) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 13, 2016
Copenhagen 13/11 2016. 75 cl bottle from Meny. Santa from the local department store on the label. Pours clear dark reddish brown with off-white head. Settles as thin creamy layer of foam. Moderate lacing. Aroma of fermented Apples, brown sugar, glue and alcohol. Soft carbonation and medium thick palate. Flavor is heavy sweet with only light bitterness. Sweet aftertaste. For some reason it does not feel very heavy. A nice alternative to glwein, glgg and other Christmas monsters you might encounter.
