Passewaaij (326) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 14, 2013
Goudkleurig, bijna pils qua kleur, met veel wit schuim. Ruikt hoppig, beetje zoet. Smaakt super, niet te zoet, redelijk bitter.

Not a demanding one - pours gold hazy with stable head. Aromas are Belgian yeast and fruits (citrus and redcurrant). The carbonation is fizzy, taste is sour, body is dry to medium. Overal - very refreshing but not one of those that would scracth your tasting buds and make you remember it for longer. Apart from that I find the label quite poor. (did they want to follow Delirium’s in any way?)

mgajdaczewa (2040) - Katowice, POLAND - OCT 12, 2013
Cuchnęło to piwo starymi drożdżami, a smakowało nieudolnie przeprowadzoną górną fermentacją na styl belgijski, co o ile w Polsce jest raczej normalne tak w Belgii jest raczej niewybaczalne. Na plus to, że ostatecznie jeśli człowiek przyzwyczai się do tego specyficznego, nieprzyjemnego słodowego smaku może to w siebie wlać. Nigdy więcej piw z gołymi babami!

Finally got round to opening my 0.75 litre bottle when a mate stayed for the weekend (25 May 2013): poured into two ’Duvel’ glassses. I love sweet beers and this did the trick for me. Pours an orange gold colour with a white staying, but thin head. Sweet nose and taste: like sugar has been poured into the final stages of the brewing process, or added to the bottle (like the old home brewing way) before closing the cap. Spicy notes too, corriander and cloves came to mind along with yeast esters and pie crust. The sweetness however overpowers everything else and I couldn’t keep my eyes from Santa’s crutch, I’m sure it was winking at me!

Grzesiek79 (4246) - Radom, POLAND - MAR 19, 2013
Srednie w smaku i zlozonosc uboga, finisz wytrawny i lekko alkoholizujacy. Piana srednia ale bardzo trwala. kolor lekko metny ciemno zolty. Zapach za to mocno owocowy. truskawkowo-malinowy troche owocow lesnych. silne nagazowanie. ładna buteleczka z typowo swiatecznymi akcentami

KansaiBeerLvrs (5040) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAR 16, 2013
Drunk on Dec. 1, 2012 A bottle from Craft Beer Base, it poured a highly carbonated gold with a light fluffy quickly dissipating head. Very belgian flavor profile with a great fruity nose and a nice mild sourness. The aftertaste was a bit mossy though... You do feel the 8.5% so be careful drinking this one!

jonathannoal (31) - Porto Alegre, BRAZIL - MAR 7, 2013
Cerveja interessante! Frutas vermelhas muito presentes, contendo até alguns pedações em suspensão no líquido. Muito adocicada no início, terminando com um amargor interessante. Vale a pena conhecer e degustar.

laiti (8304) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 2, 2013
33 cl bottle @ Kahdet Kasvot. Rated on 15.01.2010
Aroma is somewhat fruity with apricot, some spices and Belgian yeast. Flavour is slightly sweet and somewhat fruity with caramel, Belgian yeast, some spices and distant floral notes. Quite typical Belgian christmas beer.

Cool pic on the front but that doesn’t count for much does it? The pour is murky brownish yellow with a big white head. Nose is citrus, cloves, honey and corn syrup. The taste is sweet, with a little bitter on the end. The mouthfeel is crisp and clean, perhaps just a bit to carbonated. The body is light and the finish is long.
