Bottle (ZBF2008) (sip)
Pale orange, thin head. Grainy and bready. Covers alcohol well. Long tangy yeasty and bitter finish. But a bit unsatisfying on the whole.

It is a strong blonde ale, which smells great of coriander and hops. The taste is a strong blonde ale, fresh cereal, summer berries, orange, coriander and a good dose of alcohol which emphasizes that it is a strong beer. It has lovely creamy foam that quickly dwindle. Perhaps it is too strong to enjoy for the classic Danish Christmas dinner, but as a discretionary enjoyment on top of the food it will be quite appropriate. Lovely beer.

Spiced Christmas tripel since 2007. Off-white head over a yellow blonde beer, sweet and fruity aroma of cinnamon, honey, candi syrup, pineapple, vanilla, flowers. Soft sweet taste, sugary, strong peachy and banana-like fruitiness, gradually evolving into a floral and spicy, lightly warming finish. Nice.

Ik ben nogal sceptisch tegenover blonde kerstbieren omdat voor mij dat donkere bieren moeten zijn, waar meestal meer smaak aan zit dan aan blonde. Maar dit was een welkome verrassing, een enorm lekker kerstbier

PotjeBier (3839) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - MAY 24, 2014
Backlog. 33 cl bottle @ home, 2007 issue. Blonde color, cloudy. Huge head, but short retention. Aroma’s from the glass: sourish, infected, stinky cheese, weird; retronasal: Malty sweet, herbs/spices, something off. Flavor: moderate sweet with something strange herbal. Medium bodied. Finishes slightly dry and somewhat herbal bitter. Flavor was OK-ish, but the aroma was way off.

Icedwarf (1886) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - APR 5, 2014
Geelkleurig troubel bier met weinig koolzuur. Smaak is fruit, appel en citroen. Smaak blijft redelijk lang hangen.

goozen (4178) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - DEC 27, 2013
Bottle 0,33ltr: Hazy dark golden coloured brew with an slightly sweet bitter taste and some hints of caramel, fruits and spices.

This is quite the unorthodox Christmas (and not only because its a blonde, which might be one of its best attributes). This Wallonian blonde pours in a cloudy light brown proving to be an unfiltered Belgian Ale. The carbonation comes bursting out with a light frothy head that dies down fast enough to let you enjoy the light fruity aroma. The flavor is mild as it the beer is obviously made up of pale malts. The traditional spices are not apparent on the tongue but linger in the after tone. If you are looking for a traditional X-Mas Ale, this is not the one, but instead this is an excellent beer year round!

Bottle from Havnens, Vejle. Clear golden with a lasting white head. Aroma is sweet, malty, fruity, oranges and spicy. Flavor is quite sweet and moderate bitter. Dry and moderate bitter finish. 011213

Oelbas (274) - DENMARK - NOV 18, 2013
Gylden uklar med meget gærsvæv. Skummet er fint, hvidt og ikke særlig holdbart. Duften er relativt svag, sød med blomster og banan. Smagen fyldig med en lidt påtrængende humlebitterhed, hvis den drikkes ved stuetemperatur. Det ville formentlig hjælpe på balancen, hvis den var lidt koldere. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle.Dark golden with dense medium white head. Aroma sweet malts, sugar, dates, some grass. Taste sweet malty, sugar, some hoppbitterness in the finish. Nice beer.
