Clear amber beer, creamy irregular beige head, little stable, non adhesive. Aroma: sweet, honey, sugary, bit soapy, floral, citronella. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: bit sourish, spicy, citrus, floral, hoppy, bit herbal. Aftertaste: soft bitterness, lots of citronella, some caramel, hoppy, bit grassy, soapy touch. Weird, with all the citronella. Im curious where that came from...

Alengrin (4895) - BELGIUM - DEC 23, 2014
Better known nowadays as Santa Bee, another stereotypical Scotch-based Belgian Christmas ale, deep bronze with dense, off-white head; malty and estery aroma, honey, sweet spiciness, candied fruits; malty taste, fruity, candi sugar, caramelly, yeasty, sourish touch with a dryish finish with some warming alcohol and roasted coffee bitterishness, but solvents as well. Quite alright but there are better Belgians to choose from in this time of the year.
