Oakes (19045) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 15, 2017
Hazy dull light brown with minimal head. Aroma showcases plastic and cloying sugars. Alcohol, sticky, yeasty, some apple and brown sugar but wow what a mess. North American brewers: do not use Huyghe beers as your benchmark for Belgian ale.

Cybuch (596) - Muszyna, POLAND - DEC 15, 2017
W aromacie owocowo, brzoskwinia. Barwa bursztynowa, piana obfita, bardzo fajnie sie prezentuje. W smaku rowniez owocowe, fajna slodowosc, lekko slodkawe. Ale nie ma tu gestosci, jest na granicy wytrawnosci. Alkohol bardzo dobrze ukryty. Bardzo fajne piwko, pije o glowe zwykle delirium.

MetalNHopHead (2223) - Lincoln, Nebraska, USA - DEC 13, 2017
Delirium's Christmas brew is brown-shaded ale that has some Belgian yeast character, but makes an overall malty impression. The feel is soft, though it isn't as ultra fat and velvety as some Belgians - there's a bit more carbonation. Dry, earthy, and spicy yeast character followed by nutty caramel. Toasted grains and toasted sugar notes. Balance is mostly sweet. This Strong Ale goes about its business very easily.

Off white bubbly head stayed on a very dark brown, luscious, still body.
Stewed fruit, caramel, orange & Christmas spices aroma.
Medium bodied, sparkling on the palate, thinning to the back with a prickly finish.
Sweet caramel tastes with over ripe fruit, spices, candied orange, demerara & a long tangy, fruity finish.
Excellent Christmas Ale

3.2
CraftyHare (129) - Adelaide, AUSTRALIA - DEC 7, 2017
330ml bottle pours dark red-brown with thick creamy off-white head. Aromas of caramel malt, molasses, spices and alcohol. Tastes of dried fruit, brown sugar, Belgian yeast, spices and cognac. High carbonation, but thin body has trouble hiding the 10% alc vol. Not as layered as I would expect for a xmas strong ale. Cool label artwork though.

3.7
Tjeerd (630) - GERMANY - NOV 30, 2017
Dit is een kerstbier zoals je dat verwacht. Kruidig als een goede glühwein, maar belgisch bier zoals alleen belgisch bier kan zijn.

3.5
serrano94 (27) - SPAIN - NOV 28, 2017
De sabor amargo pero con suavidad. Espuma poco duradera y con bastante aroma a malta. Una delicia para los paladares exquisitos para beber a diario.
