hoju777 (153) - Florida, USA - DEC 23, 2012
On tap at Moose. Reddish brownish. A bit watery for an X-mas beer. Maybe a bit of ambiguous x-mas spices in the background somewhere. Not a good beer. Not bad, I guess.

Evilman (183) - Taverny, FRANCE - FEB 19, 2017
Another seasonal Grimbergen product. I cant say I had high expectations for this one, considering its counterpart (Leffe de Noel) was pleasant but not that impressive, but it managed to be rather nice, yet not very different from the regular Grimbergen. Very sweet and creamy taste, soft head, smooth aroma. Hints of caramel and light spices. Very easy to drink so it was pleasant after a good meal, but its not especially interesting compared to some other ones they put on the market more recently. Still cool despite its evident lack of ambitions.. APPROVED BY TAVERNYS BLACK METAL CREW!

Appearance: clear copper with good off-white soapy head and lacing. aroma/taste: bread, caramel, brown sugar and sweet berry & fruity notes. palette: strong malty and yeasty aroma, medium to light sparkling carbonation, medium body, average to notable sweetness, somewhat balanced by a light to medium bitterness, average to long duration and a watery texture. Overall: nice widely available Belgian Christmas

Beer5000 (6200) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 28, 2016
750 ml bottle. Chrystal clear, deep amber with a medium sized off-white head. Looks really great actually. Medium strong aroma of dry fruit, candy sugar, toast and caramel malt. Flavor is sweet mild caramel malt, dry fruit, candy sugar and a little toast. Medium body and sweet aftertaste with a little bitter hint toward the end. Quite plain and straight forward Belgium ale, but not bad at all. No problem finishing the bottle myself to a meal.
