En dehors du fait qu’elle n’a pratiquement rien d’une bière de Noël (à part peut-être la couleur, vaguement rouge-brune), cette Breughel goûte comme si les ingrédients avaient été faits à partir d’un "kit" déjà tout fait. Aucune épice, l’alcool est perceptible en bouche (mais pas au nez, il faut l’avouer), et à part quelques notes de fruité (baies, peut-être des cerises en finale), rien de remarquable ni même rien qui compense pour l’ennui qu’elle suscite.

Viper666 (3283) - Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 13, 2013
Bouteille 500ml. De couleur brune et voilée. Nez de légumes bouillis avec des notes de chocolat, de caramel, d’alcool léger et de plastique brûlé. Moyennement rond een bouche avec un pétillement moyen et une texture aux notes huileuses. Léger goût de caramel avec des traces de chocolat noir et de brûlé dès l’entrée en bouche qui laisse rapidement la place à un goût de légumes cuits (chou) et d’alcool assez intense ainsi qu’un goût de brûlé progressivement plus présent. Post-goût long et sec, amer de brûlé et d’alcool.

Oakes (17132) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 24, 2012
Hazy light brown. The aroma has light cherries and lots of brown sugar. Sweet. Sugary character but picking up some harsher phenolic stuff underneath.

Beershine (5224) - VANCOUVER, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 2, 2012
Draft at beethilde vandoren. Dark the color of fig jam. Bot much head. Aroma is powerfully sweet with fruit sugars, honey, date paste. Thin and painfully sweet diabetic beer. However, there are bran muffin notes, stewed raisin and plum adding nuance to all those sugars. Too sweet, thin, and unrefined. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

500 mL bottle. Muddy brown with a decent, but short lived beige head. This was after it slowly oozed in the sink for twenty minutes. Smells off. Kinda vinegary. Tastes not so off, but still not right. Sweet early, but vinuous and dry at the end. This can’t be what they were going for, can it?

Originally rated July 2006. 2005 edition, well at least written 2005 in small on front label. Wow ! A huge head is created with a few millimetres of brew at the bottom of my glass. Beige creamy head which lasts forever. The colour is dirty caramel brown and quite cloudy. Head won’t go down, so lets do the aroma thing. Dark fruits like raisins, plums, then nut, caramel malt, Belgian yeast and some light sourness. Very active tiny bubble carbonation with a thin mouhtfeel. No burn what so ever, and quite mild taste. Actually, kind of like burnt rubber or plastic. Very weird. I will finish the bottle just to get loaded. Just this once.

Dfonorow (2216) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 6, 2011
Pours brownish black with a thin off-white head. Aroma is of sugar and vinegar? Flavor is acidic, metallic, sour grapes... pretty awful. Very disappointing... I’m rating this a two because its a lot like poop.

500mL bottle courtesy of manuchampions, pours dark brown with a towering beige head. Nose of candied sugar, caramel malts and a slightly acidic character. Vile, vile flavour, with a very acidic, nasty grape, artificially sweet and metallic body. Thanks Jon, but I’m going to have to pour this... gross.

Gethinbeer (2452) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - MAR 30, 2010
Black colour with a frothy white head. Acidic aroma. Again very thin in body and flavour. Acidic. The beer has no balls, not very innovative. Disappointing beer.
