Tap at Max’s. Pours a clear red. Phenols, must, earth in the nose. Some very odd flavors like dirt, floor, old candies, must, sweaty socks in the body. Weird. JoeinDahlem (1503) - Berlin, GERMANY - JAN 30, 2010
Kerstbierfestival in Essen. Murky brown color with fruity nose, notes of black currant and juniper. Firm bitterness, light sweetness, well balanced. Pretty dry. Getting spicier as it warms. Well-rounded and confident winter warmer. BoBoChamp (5755) - Gent, BELGIUM - JAN 20, 2010
33cl, new exclusive brew Anno 2009, from Geers Oostakker, complex brew, yet easy to drink, not balanced, hazy, good head, good Winter brew PilsnerPeter (3045) - Flushing, New York, USA - JAN 19, 2010
Tap at Blind Tiger: Hazy light golden pour with a white film of head. The aroma has a mild doughy note with a touch of bubblegum phenolics. Slick/light body. Has a very simple pale Belgian malt flavor. Some mild bubblegum and peppery phenols- quite one dimensional and boring. thebeertourist (5189) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 7, 2010
Bottle. Burgundy with a medium yellowish head. Notes of berries and sweet bon-bon as well as grains and toffee. Complex malty flavours, quite a bit of spices, some berryish sourness. Interesting.

@ Kerstbierfestival Essen (B). A little hazy almost brown colored beer, with a beige head. The aroma of caramel, with coffee candy and fruits. The taste of caramel, with brown spiced biscuit. There is bitter with some fruits. The aftertaste is bitter sweet. maupie (1067) - Roosendaal, NETHERLANDS - DEC 14, 2009
