Pas du tout une belgian strong, mme si elle est strong en ralit, mais une spciale de Nol brune de 8% abv, avec candi, miel et pices. Je mexplique: son niveau abv thorique ne permet dailleurs pas de la ranger dans les strong, mais on verra que son efficacit relle le permettrait tout fait, neut t le fait que les Christmas sont des bires part entire, dont ratebeer na dailleurs pas rfrenc le style, mais ceci est un a parte... Couleur brun roux, transparence rousse en bas de verre. Bulles fines partout bien vives. Mousse beige crmeuse trs souple, qui nappe 2 mm. Armes de malt torrfi, pointe de porto, bois de ft, levure, pain dpices. 1re bouche souple la belle entame malt/levure, avec un ct bois, rgliss. Arrire-bouche bien dense, malte, pice, pointe de girofle. 2me trs belle suite malt, liqueur. Arrire-bouche avec une pointe de bonbon lanis de jadis. 3me la grande suavit, malt et pices trs harmonieux. Arrire-bouche douce et complexe. Longueur de grande suite, trs belle harmonie. Jambes fines, groupes. Levure forte, dense, trs belle ligne. Alcool solide, il aide au profil de lensemble, trs directif. Finale grande, enthousiaste. CONCLUSION: bire qui se dveloppe sur la longueur, grande, belle, complexe, dense, avec un impact gustatif majeur. Donc une vraie bire de fte, tout fait dans le style requis.

RW80 (2500) - Hoogeveen, NETHERLANDS - MAR 21, 2015
33cl flesje via Brewery Shop, Appearance: Brown with a tiny head., not that nice looking. Aroma: Caramel, acid, Chanterelle, duck meat. Taste: Well this taste like how I could make Duck with Chantarelles in a liquid vorm and slightly sweeter. Not much bitterness, Starts sour with some candy sugar sweetness and odd earthy tones and it even has a hint of the peppery tones Chantarelles have. and some of the tones of the Duck. This is not normal how beer should taste, but I like it. medium body, soft carbonation. Very odd brew, I know the Bies beers are crazy. But this one makes the other look like childplay. Fact is liked it, but its not for most people.

33cl flesje via Brewery Shop, Brugge Alcoholpercentage van 8% Uitgeschonken in Keyte glas Uiterlijk: hazelnootbruin, weinig tot geen schuim Aroma en smaak: caramel, zuur, donker fruit, kruidig, zoetje erna van kandijsuiker, honing ook licht te proeven Conclusie: niet mijn smaak, maar wordt lekkerder gedurende het drinken. Zuur waar ik niet van hou wordt gecompenseerd met een zoetje. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jinroh (1505) - ESTONIA - SEP 6, 2014
330 ml bottle. Purs hazy brown, almost no head. Looks like a good fermented kvass. Aroma has bee wax and honey, some bitter notes, alcohol. Quite nice actually. Taste is a bit sour, has honey sweetness and aftertaste leaves a strong and lingering bee wax taste. Quite nice beer, sweetness is not cloying at all, slow drinker, interesting and one of the best honey beers I have had.

Alengrin (5187) - BELGIUM - AUG 24, 2014
Christmas version of Zatte Bie, with less stable, thinner, more yellowish foam, less sweet onset but more sticky sweetness in the finish, which also shows roasted bitterness absent in Zatte Bie. Otherwise pretty much the same, including the very dark red-brown colour, the honey, the chocolatey malts and the sweet spiciness.
