SlovakSniper (5561) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 2, 2015
As «Noël Des Géants» with my friends Frank and Sue. Une bière ambrée avec une mousse crémeuse à souhait. Des parfums et saveurs épicés bien dosés: cannelle, muscade, touche de gingembre, coriandre, je ne sais plus trop, girofle aussi, peut-être. Belle base maltée à la belge, caramel avec ajout de sucre candi, traces fruitées, raisins comme dans une double. Beau corps souple, effervescence à point, étonnant. Finale riche comme une brioche légèrement épicée. Facile à boire. Une surprise!

Erzengel (9779) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - JUL 16, 2015
*Old rating, best before 10/2013. Malzig-süßlich-dickflüssiges Bier. Rund, weich. Kräuter, Röstmalz, Karamell. Moderat bitterer, aber passender Nachgeschmack Durchaus nett.

Bottle during RBWG. Pours a clear orange with medium off white head. The aroma is yeast and spice. Thin mouth with spice and caramel, decent.

stevoj (5881) - Boise, Idaho, USA - FEB 15, 2015
Exploding bottle, so I only got to sample a bit. Needless to say, lively body and creamy head. Meadow, floral, herbal notes, some golden ale, some Belgian triple. All in all, a tasty brew.

sloshgator (770) - Orlando, Florida, USA - FEB 11, 2015
My botttle says Noël des Géants. They say it is the same beer but I wonder given the other ratings. Wonderful aroma rising of a cloudy brown pour with an ample head. Taste is has nice floral notes and sweet with maybe a touch of sour. It’s not real complex, but a nice balance. Slightly warming as it goes down but the flavor fades a little too quickly. Noël des Géants is a very nice Belgium with a perfectly balanced taste.

2.8
bkurtz (1151) - LITHUANIA - FEB 11, 2015
Pours a clear copper with a creamy head. Has a sweet malt aroma. The taste starts biscuity and finishes a bit astringent. Not so nice.

3.1
Silphium (3224) - Traverse City, Michigan, USA - FEB 3, 2015
Bottle. Deep murky red-brown-orange body, medium clumping off-white head. Nose of white grape, pear, and sticky, fermented pineapple. Very sweet. Somewhat tart body, phenolic, with fermented light fruits (same as above) and drier biscuity notes. Meh.

3.6
penstemon (224) - Washington, USA - JAN 9, 2015
Pours rusty orange-amber with an off=white head. Aroma has strong notes of dried plum and raisin, also candied orange peel, dried cherry, apple and grape candy, some bread, and a bit of spice. Really great. Taste is lots of fruitiness - raisin, plum, grape. Cola, bread, a bit of molasses and spice. Light bitterness. Falls a little flat to the amazing aroma, but still nice. Medium body, full fizzy carbonation.

3.3
jandd1983 (4690) - Wentzville, Missouri, USA - JAN 6, 2015
Sampled at an ESBLS tasting. It poured a dark brown color with an off-white head. The aroma was of malts, caramel and some spices. The taste was of malts, caramel, fruits and more spices.
