signori superbirra! ricordo la mia ultima visita al birrificio boelens..agricolo,rustico,utilizzo di materie prime visibilmente naturali,alla mano e semplice..in questa birra si pu trovare tutto ci..pur non rientrando a mio parere tra le birre artigianali natalizie,la birra una bomba! aromi agrumosi molto molto decisi (pompelmo in primis) derivanti da spezie e piante particolari sicuramente (ricordo roba verde che veniva lanciata nei fermentatori :D) e non da luppolo..gusto maltato ma come nellaroma,dominato da spezie davvero gradevolissime che la rendono amara ma non come il luppolo..un qualcosa che svanisce dopo la sorsata e invoglia la gola a ricevere dellaltro! gasata al punto giusto,corpo medio,finale secco..davvero unottima birra "natalizia"!

Ysok02 (1397) - Mons, BELGIUM - DEC 28, 2016
Robe brune, mousse peu persistante. Nez typ sur des notes de caramel, de chocolat, de prunes crass, sur un fond de malt torrfi. Bouche lattaque torrfie, fine bulle acidule, manque un peu dampleur, finale sur lamertume. Une bire un peu dissocie mon got.

Dark ruby, off-white lacing lasting foam. Caramel in aroma and bitterness in taste, somewhat strange combination of tastes. OK. (Arnhem 201612)

[Thank you for sharing!][330 ml. bottle sampled @ O.B.E.R. Kerstbierfestival 2016] Dark brown, tanned head. Nose is overly big on brown sugar, dough, bread, fruit. Taste is extremely boozy, weirdly alcoholic, raw booze, sugar, spoiled fruit, sugar & varnish. Body is varnish, booze.
