Red fruits, sherry, hints of caramel, acetic notes, cloudy amber/reddish with a thin head, medium/full body, law carbonation, taste similar to the aroma with a pleasant sour final...intense sweet but for christmas is a good adjective.

Silvan7 (1176) - Samarate, ITALY - DEC 5, 2016
"Reserva 2016" On tap @ Extraomnes bier e cibo. Giallo ambrato carico velato, schiuma bianco lattiginoso, fine persistente. Aroma intenso fine e complesso. Subito si avvertono note fruttate riconducibili al vino, uva appassita, legno ,quasi liquoroso. esteri del lievito belga, fruttati, pesca sciroppata, zucchero candito, leggerissima luppolatura. Dolce amabile, acidula, solo nel finale qualche sentore amaro, ma il calore alcolico lo "lava" immediatamente, speziata, Calda, poco carbonata, corpo medio, rotonda, "piena". Equilibrata ed armonica.

laiti (8173) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 21, 2015
33 cl bottle vintage 2011 @ home. Batch #214 11, BBE 08/2016
Aroma has ripe fruits, apricot and alcohol. Foamy palate. Flavour has burning & warming alcohol, ripe fruits, apricot and some yeasty tones. Finishes with some spicy tones and more alcohol. Very Belgian, reminds me of some Bush beers. Alcohol clearly pushes through here but luckily most of it is of warming type.

AlchemikalGab (48) - Borgomanero (Novara), ITALY - JAN 20, 2015
33cl bottle from my cellar (1 year and 2 months approximately). Pours a clear, amber coloured liquid, with a thin, off-white head. I can smell candies, apple pie, vanilla, honey and even some funk. Taste is mostly fruity, sweet, and mellow, you can detect just a little warming sensation (it?s 12% ABV but it doesn?t feel like it at all) with a slightly tart finish. Body is impressively thin, carbonation is soft.

oliodnb (662) - ITALY - JAN 13, 2015
33cl bottle. Pours light hazy amber with two fingers of light beige head. Aroma is sweet malts, caramel, candied sugar, sweet fruits (raisins, dates), some nuts and some yeast along with a light alcoholic note. Taste is similar with less sweetness, lots of fruity notes, some acidity, some alcohol again, spices. Medium body, light carbonation, very good long lasting sweet finish with only minimal bitterness. Excellent.
