Bottled(250ml). –Deep golden/amber coloured, medium sized pale beige head. Sweet malty aroma with notes of spice, fruit, caramel and toffee. Just a few tiny hop hints. Sweet fruity and mild alcoholic finish. Nice notes of banana and orange in the aftertaste. In comparison with other Duyck beers that I’ve tried this Noël is quite good.

Shared 750 ml green corked "champagne" bottle, from Voldby Købmandsgaard. Reddish brown colour, moderate off-white head. Moderate but nice aroma, malts, herbal hops and a hint of caramel. Harmonious flavour, not very sweet, herbal hops, highly drinkable. Better suited to accompany Christmas dinner than its sweeter Belgian counterparts.

Bottle. Pours clear darkish copper brown and ruby with airy off-white head. Clear aroma of fruit and malt with notes of caramel and spices. Sweet, fruity flavour with notes of malt, touches of flowers, notes of hops. Sparse metallic notes. Slightly vinous and fruity finish. OK. Rather Christmas-like for a Biere de Garde, though.

From Michaels Mad og Vin in Hørning. This beer was very nice but a little too much cristmas-style for me.
