MoritzF (9564) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - DEC 28, 2008
[25cl bottle, merci beaucoup à Quack-Duck pour les petites Françaises] Clear, amber colour with a cream-coloured, mid-sized foamy head. Sweet and slightly sourish malty nose with a touch of toffee and flowery as well as spicy accents, also quite artificial. Light-bitter flavour, medium bodied with a moderate carbonation. Malt-accented, slightly fruity taste with spicy (pepper, cinnamon) notes. Quite dry and slightly bitter, spicy and shy hoppy finish with traces of alcohol that cannot be hidden. All in all not bad [20.XII.08].

Quack-Duck (9356) - Down South, GERMANY - DEC 14, 2008
bottle from Auchan, Strasbourg. Clear amber colour, aroma of malt and herbs, medium-size head. Full-bodied, malty with hints of caramel, herbs and christmas spices. Slightly fruity with a touch of orange peel. Pleasantly hoppy in the finish.

gunnar (8424) - Sandnes, NORWAY - NOV 30, 2009
Bottle @ Cardinal. Pours golden with a very thin head. Weak malty aroma. Taste is light sweet, malt,berries. Dries up at the end. Strange christmas brew.

chriso (7513) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 14, 2011
On tap at the Draft House, Tower Bridge on 8 February 2011 (as Meteor Biere d’Hiver). Orange in colour. Sweetish and quite fruity. Not much hop character in evidence. That’s about it really. Difficult to place style-wise - at least it’s not listed as a Biere De Garde. Overall, pleasant enough but not hugely interesting.

ogivlado (7434) - Zagreb, CROATIA - MAY 13, 2008
Bottled(250ml). -Dark golden coloured, medium sized lasting white head, malty caramel nose. The taste is also very malty, light fruity and caramel with notes of spices and few alcohol hints. Boring Noël.

larsga (7381) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 18, 2008
Medium offwhite head. Copper body with light carbonation. Fruity, lemony aroma with notes of lime. Sweetish fruity lemony taste, again with a kind of lime background. Clean, medium mouthfeel. Dry malty caramelly aftertaste dominated by the same lemon/lime character. Not terribly complex, and extremely unusual, but quite OK. This is really the beer Corona should have been. What the association with Christmas could possibly be I really couldn’t say. (0.65l bottle from the wine monopoly.)

Sigmund (6958) - Tau, NORWAY - NOV 7, 2007
650 ml green glass bottle, entirely covered in very "christmasy" plastic foil. Courtesy of Cardinal pub, Stavanger. Also available in Norway at Vinmonopolet, bestillingsutvalget. ABV is 5.8%. Clear and deep golden colour, large and lasting head. Fruity and spicy aroma with notes of farm kitchen, quite nice. The flavour has some of the "spritziness" of other bières-de-garde, but is sweeter, with caramel. Artificial "aroma" (whatever that may be) has been added, hmmm ... That is probably what I get some candy / pear drops notes from. Moderate hops in the finish. Not your typical Christmas beer, but drinkable.

Idiosynkrasie (6871) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - FEB 5, 2012
650ml bottle. Clear copper with yellowish off-white head. Grainy aroma, hay and straw, minimal alcohol note. Taste is sweet caramel, fizzy grainy and slightly alcoholic finish. Nothing special.

Finn (6824) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JAN 30, 2008
Bottle 0,65l. Golden colored. A shortlived creamy head. Aroma of berries. The flavor is dominated by sweet fruit and berries. Sourish bitter finish. No Christmas feeling at all. Label design better than the content.KI=4
