COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
(ik haat B. C.) A Natale, Kerst in fiammingo, siamo tutti pi buoni. Anche la nostra Kerst vorrebbe esserlo, ma non riesce a togliersi di dosso listinto naturale a far del male. Attenzione, dunque. Schiuma prorompente e cremosa, lo spettro olfattivo dominato da un violento fruttato che ricorda le mele caramellate ed in secondo piano la pasta reale siciliana. Etilica in bocca, con un attacco morbido subito aggredito da una tagliente freschezza acida. Da abbinare ad una fredda serata invernale.

mkel07 (5686) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JAN 5, 2013
On tap at Tipplers Tap. A big ballsy Belgian strong ale with a mouth numbing alcohol content that sends an alcohol burn down your throat - in a good way. Packed full of spiced fruit aromas and flavours. This s a beer that needs to be sipped and appreciated. Light amber colour with a sticky residue of ace left on the glass. The Italians certainly know their beer.

Colore ambrato. Schiuma bianca, compatta, persistente. Aroma di malto con sentori di mele, coriandolo, zenzero. In bocca dolce, burrosa, con lalcol bene mascherato, una buona acidit e un finale secco

Lele (531) - Padova, ITALY - OCT 9, 2016
Aspetto: bionda un po' torbida, schiuma quasi assente. Aroma: decisamente speziato, aroma di canditi (proprio come quelli di Natale), fruttata, leggero caramello. Gusto: tutti i sentori avvertiti al naso. Carbonizzazione tra media e bassa, corpo tra medio e strutturato. Birra molto buona e dai sentori molto gradevoli. Forse un po' piatta a causa delle troppo poche bollicine. Comunque soddisfacente, un buon lavoro. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BeerandBlues2 (12841) - Escondido, California, USA - APR 15, 2012
Bottle shared by Ryan. Pours hazy orange to amber with a medium, frothy white head, medium retention with good lacing. Aroma is floral and herbal hops, earthy notes, cookie and biscuit malt, perfume and spices with fruity esters. Flavor is fruity and barnyard notes, light malt, light hops and bitterness, and a dry finish. Medium body, warmth, and carbonation.

MrChopin (4304) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - APR 19, 2012
hazy gold, frothy white head with ample lacing. Nose is dry hay, light tea, bit of sweet earth. Sweet red grape and clay, hay mid with nice caramelized brown sugar finish. Dry end despite sweetness, rich, layered.

Kosmokrator (849) - ITALY - NOV 7, 2012
UPDATED: NOV 21, 2015 Color arancio scuro nebuloso con una schiuma bianca persistente di medio spessore. Aroma con sentori di albicocca, lievito e bucce di agrumi candite; gusto dolce con note di albicocche secche e zucchero di canna, mela cotta e glassa di zucchero verso il finale. Persistenza media, al palato rotonda, setosa, quasi mielosa. E meno corposa dellatteso e labv ben mascherato: una possibile conseguenza, assieme alleffervescenza debole, dei due anni passati in cantina.

Davros (3054) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - DEC 28, 2013
Pours dark amber with a lasting head. Nose shows brown sugar, confectionery, a gooseberry lambic note, horseblanket and lemon. Unorthodox and probably not intended but nice. Some of the funky notes transfer through as flavours but its more about the malt; very sweet with big confectionery sugar-like notes. Some booze but reasonably well-integrated. A bit too sweet. Could use a fair bit more carbonation.
