Bottle, 33cL. Home. A brown orange opaque beer ; some yeast sediments ; big creamy white head ; average retention. Caramel aroma, herbs, biscuit. Medium sweet, acid note, light bitter, a bit dry. Medium body, thin to medium texture, high carbonation, sweet finish, refreshing and yeasty note. Overall, average christmas beer ; lack of depth.

kraddel (8156) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - JAN 24, 2015
Bottle . Bit astonished by the high ratings this one appears to have . Had no expectations at all , which has changed just now . Pours clear amber, good white head . Smell is sweet, touch of herbal spices . On the bitter side as well . Taste is very sharp bitter, with earthy amber malts . Not as sweet as expected . Full, kinda bread-like character . Not very spiced in the taste at all . Good mouthfeel , yet as in most Belgian beers overcarbonated to me ... Nice one, yes . Not sure why it has a 90+ score though ...

rosenbergh (11532) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 18, 2015
330 ml bottle. BB? From saveur-biere.com.
Lively cloudy bright orangey golden colour with huge foamy off-white head. Grainy malt, yeast and mild hops in the aroma. The flavour is yeast, mild hops, mild bitterness, mild spices and malt. Quite indifferent beer.

gygatron (2) - Valladolid, SPAIN - JAN 10, 2015 does not count
UPDATED: MAR 15, 2016 Cuando probé eata cerveza por primera vez, me atrajo su aroma ligero. Pensé, seguro que me ofrece algo. Nada más lejos de la verdad, un gusto insípido y volátil que no deja mas que un regusto a flores pasadas.

Garrold (5278) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 28, 2014
Bottle. Archer Road Beer Stop, Sheffield. Hazy, lumpy, reddy amber. Thin, fairly dense, lasting, white head. Soft, fruity, caramel malts. Banana and toffee ice cream. Some cherry, too. Beyond the sweet, there are elements of raisin, granary bread, and nuts. Taste is light sweet, and fruity dry. Soft, smooth, luscious palate. Finishes chewy, soft, and fruity dry. Goes really well with Stichelton cheese. I’m about to go overboard on both...

3.3
allmyvinyl (10624) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 26, 2014
330ml bottle from Beers of Europe. Pours clear golden amber, thick off-white head. Aromas of Belgian yeast, spice, grainy notes, light citrus fruit. Taste is more of the same, light boozy note at the end. Prickly carbonation. OK.
