Bottle @ Kerstbierfestival 2006 in Essen, BE. Amber red color with a good off-white head. Aroma is malty, roasted, fruit, hops. Flavor is nice balance of sweet and bitter with a average duration. yespr (45412) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - DEC 7, 2006
75 cL bottle. Pours with whith and short-living head. Clear smell of of "De Koninck"-hops. Elements of yeast too. Taste is classical de Koninck with hops and malt. On top of this is a sweet taste of cinnamon together with vinous fruity/fig-like taste. Almost creamy texture but still light bodied. I’m not much of a De Koninck fan, this is better than their other beers, but still not amongst the best Belgian seasonal ales. Ungstrup (37561) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 8, 2003

, Essen. Amber colour, not much head. Aroma is hops, malts and earth. Flavour is the same, quite sweet flowery and fruity hops along with some mild vanilla added.
Sampled draught at Akkurat, Stockholm, Sweden.Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 15, 2005
Ruby. Coloured. Flowery hop aroma. Dry nose, nicely malty - near full body. Fruity and clean with a flowery bitter finish.
UPDATED: JUL 2, 2005 (Bottle 33 cl) Beautiful, clear bronze colour, rather limited head. Typical fruity esters from the ale-yeast and a light sweetish, caramel-like aroma which is perfectly balanced by a prominent bitterness. Medium body and easier to drink than most other heavy Belgian winter/christmas-beers. 240205 madmitch76 (24791) - , Essex, ENGLAND - JAN 2, 2011
