Couleur orangée, trouble, mousse digne, nez à fond sur la poire, dingue ! En bouche c’est très fort sur les épices, genre la cannelle. Ça mousse en bouche. On sent quand même pas mal l’alcool. Une bière d’hiver qui fait le job.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
De Ranke’s Pere Noel takes a lighter touch with its Christmas-y spices and tastes quite a bit like a traditional Belgian Ale. That works just fine for me, although it won’t work for everyone. Gold pour with a bit of haze. Yeasty, fruity nose. Flavor follows suit with some touches of spiciness and sourness. Just a bit of hops. I’m a sucker for Belgian Christmas beers and this one was extremely pleasant.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours from bottle cloudy peach coloured with minimal foam head. Basement aromas with a hint of resin. Taste medium bitter, lightly sour. Palate medium body, sticky texture, average carbonation, bitter finish. Doesn’t appeal to me at all. And I love tart beers and sours. So can’t understand the rave from so many about this one. Different strokes for different folks I guess.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma is dusty, clove, banana, dry, barnyard, fruity but mostly dusty. Appearance is amber, hazy, light light brown head. Taste is bitter, dry, really really dusty, booze, not fruity, little yeast, incredibly bitter. Mouthfeel is light to medium body, light crisp carbonation, incredibly dry and bitter aftertaste. Overall, not what I expected at all, harsh but decent. Certainly not as smooth as Orval.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A tasty and sweet beer with hints of christmas spices such as korriander. The drawback is hat it’s pretty bland compared to other christmas styled beers.

Pours a very cloudy copper with fluffy, off-white head. Yeasty, bready, slightly vinous nose with some fresh gooseberries and just a hint of piney hops, becoming fruitier with mango puré after a while. Medium bodied palate, rather fresh. Medium finish with low bitterness.
