AlainG (2042) - Montréal, Quebec, - JAN 5, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 6, 2013 Bière rougeâtre coiffée d’une énorme et persistante mousse, qui garni le verre d’une dentelle échevelée. Au nez, c’est épicé. La cannelle, le clou de girofle et la muscade semble tourbillonner avec des effluves de sucre d’orge, qui serait à son tour, poivré. Le goût s’apparente à des herbes d’automne et d’épices. Des saveurs boisées, florales, herbacées et fruitées. Ça sent bon, ça goûte bon, mais le résultat me fait grimacer un peu. Peut-être parce que ça ressemble à un gâteau aux fruits?

Un pur délice; un gâteau à la cannelle dans une bouteille. Parfait comme digestif. Une belle surprise en bouche même pour ceux qui n’ont pas la dent sucrée. Belle couleur.

Bierdimpfe (550) - Quebec, CANADA - SEP 28, 2016
Cloudy copper color with snowfall activity. Creamy beige 3 finger head, lasting around 15 minutes, making strong lacing. Flavors of ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, dark berries, cherries, herbal spices and roasted grains. Slick medium body with the perfect dose of prickly carbonation. Medium strength finish with a short lingering feel of gingerbread and candy cane. Overall good quality craft. The flavors are nice and well refreshing. The alcohol is incredibly well hidden. Good intensity, but lacking balance from an overly syrupy sugary feel. Would be more pleasing with a thicker body. I find the Red racer gingerbread a better choice.

asheft (3007) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 8, 2015
Bottle. Very spicy aroma with spruce and cinnamon and other spices. Hazy red-bronze under no head. Potent spruce and spicy cinnamon flavour with sweet golden raisins and moderate bitterness. Medium body, moderate carbonation.

radiomgb (2686) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - APR 14, 2015
750ml bottle from Broue ha ha in Gatineau, Quebec. Orange-brown in colour with a thin white head, light lacing. The aroma is of spices, dark fruits, cloves and candy. The flavour is very spicy, some candy. Spicy mouthfeel, medium body, moderate carbonation. Finishes with more spice. A straight forward spicy Christmas beer.

bunget (871) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 18, 2015
750ml bottle. Clear reddish copper body, medium to small beige head, average retention, poor lacing. Aroma of yeast, herbal hops, bitter herbs, autumn leaves, ginger. Sweet taste: tons of caramel malts, ginger, herb liquor, brown sugar, cinnamon cookies, a touch of booze. Lovely.

robinvboyer (4276) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 1, 2015
Dark amber/ ruby pour, with a medium off white head. Incredibly earthy aroma. Loads of sweet, brown sugar malts, with alot of spices, and earthy ginger. The finish is light to medium bitter with an intense ginger earthiness, and strong spicy finish. It’s not a spice bomb, but it’s close. Too earthy I find though.....

2014 Bottle from Halles St-Jean. Aroma: cherries, spices. App: clear dark copper with a tint of red. Small white head. Full body, medium-high sweetness, average carbonation, light dry finish. Overall: good but a tad too sweet, candy for me.

BrewGoblin (632) - Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - JAN 1, 2015
I am a guy who likes his over-the-top ol’ timey, horse-drawn sleigh, Jack Frost nipping at your nose, tree decorating revelry, vintage Christmastime charms. This beer is that feeling a bottle. With a crystal clear reddish copper body and an off white lacing-machine on top, bold whiffs of fresh cut pine, oranges baked with cloves, spiced cider, dark fruitcake, boozy eggnog and gingerbread cookies, who could ask for more? Although some booze is present (you’d be a fool to think that at 11.3% it wouldn’t be), it takes a backseat to the prominent Old World Christmas flavours that are blended seamlessly. A light syrupy, mid bodied texture mingles with mid carbonation for a warming and joyful sipper, embracing the last vestiges of the Yuletide as a year anew unfolds.
