Bottle from gastronomie.. pour is amber.. cloudy.. tons of sediment.. looks like something ive made in the magic bullet. aroma is spoiled strawberries, sour milk, oak, spice. taste is horrendous.. sour, spoiled berries, spice.. Really shitty.. like a failed science experiment
Smooth malty beginning. Mild with yeasty beginning and cake hints. Nice with smooth sweetish hints. Beerhunter111 (23265) - Beerland, GERMANY - OCT 7, 2017
Bottle shared with Erzengel! A hazy orange brown beer with a small beige head. Aroma of herbs, spices, dark medium sweet malt. Taste of sweet caramelish malt, ginger, herbs. chinchill (5377) - South Carolina, USA - MAR 6, 2017
330 ml brown bottle. Some sediment left in the bottle.
Pours with a clear copper body topped by a respectable off-white head.
Medicinal aroma with a hint of fruit vinegar. The very tart flavor carries some of this but is a bit better than the aroma suggests. kermis (14958) - The Hague / Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - DEC 19, 2016
Bottle sampled at Essen Christmas Beer Festival ’16. Listed as “Winterbier” but described as being a rebranded version of “Kerstbier”. Cloudy golden with an off white head. Aroma big herbal notes, veggies. Flavour is moderate sweet and bitter. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Alengrin (5891) - BELGIUM - OCT 17, 2014
UPDATED: NOV 17, 2014 This rating concerns the original version of this beer, tasted at 8 months of age in 2005, when the brewery was still run by Eric Ameye. The bottle did not have a label... Pretty firm, yellowish white, moussy, regular head and dark burgundy colour, cloudy. Weird aroma of tomato, meat broth, brown sugar, cloves, liquorice, balsamic vinegar, sherry, dough. Sweetish taste, fruity esters, tomato, yeasty, dark malts, something ’umami’ and meaty, smooth, with low hop bitterness. Very strange but not really that bad - compared with the other original Gaverhopkes, at least.

Voor een kerstbier te zijn vond ik het net iets te weinig smaak hebben. Spijtig maar net niet r464 (2377) - Earth, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 1, 2014
Dark orange with almost no head. Very tart with lots of sediment. Dark fruits, light malt. Not sure whether I got a bad one, or if it just sat too long. Davhgbrew (948) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 3, 2013
Amber and clear. Aroma of apples. Slightly carbonated. Tastes cider like. Dry finish. Would prob go well with sausage that’s spicy. gEUS (1637) - Linden, BELGIUM - OCT 3, 2013
330 ml bottle at home (taken from notes 25/03/2011) - pours cloudy orange with a fizzy off-white head. Aroma of sweet malts, honey, and some citrus. Taste is a strange mix of malts and spices, and a tad too sweet for my taste. Weird beer. hallinghansen (3474) - Odense SV, DENMARK - SEP 18, 2013
Bottle @ bandlys blålys. Clear amber body with a small white head. Aroma is bay leave, potroast and spices. Flavour is bay leave and spices. This is quite weird.
