Bottle. Clear amber pour with thin white head that recedes quickly to a very smallish ring. Aroma is quite spicy, light clove/nutmeg notes with bready malt aromas. Taste is light, very spicy, light sweetness. Palate is medium bodied, light carbonation. A bit overspiced, but quite clean. Not bad.

250ml bottle from Monoprix, Marseille. A mildly syrupy lager. Not much happening - some honey notes. Drinkable and acceptable, but not otherwise note worthy. ClubGonzo (5670) - Bergen, NORWAY - DEC 4, 2009
Oh man, what a bummer. The hefty Norwegian price tag kept my expectations up all the way until the pouring. While the smell is interesting, the beer just splashes freely into my huge Du Monde Blanc 0,7 (in effect, line is a bit further down) glass and goes mute and deaf in about 2 seconds. No head, no life, despite my effort to create some foam to smell and look on top of this thing. Bleak, slightly-tanned-lager appearance, not exactly what I had hoped for. This is definitely one of the beers I should’ve read the ratings for BEFORE purchase... Oh well, down it goes, with all its weak, somebody-dissolved-my-chewing-gum flavor to it. Doesn’t even hold enough alcohol to get my consolation drunkenness on. Bad, bad, bad. And they dare brand this s**t Christmas beer??? DonMagi (5593) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 14, 2007
Big 650ml bottle from the cave, £5:99, burned man! Aroma is pale lager malts, spice, but almost completly dominated by orange. Taste is again orange, thin marmalade sweetness, all spice, nutmeg, cinnamon, alround on the sweetside. It poured with a massive sparkling head which deminished in a few second then stood looking dead for the rest of the time. Maakun (5577) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - NOV 22, 2014
75cl bottle. Clear light Amber with good sized off white head. Light spices, orange peel, Christmas cake and wine gums. Light sweet malts. Light sweet taste with spicy finish. Light bodied. Not bad, nice light Christmas beer.

Bottle @ Hoppy Advent Race in Space, Sønderborg. Pours clear golden with airy white head. Clear aroma of yeast, with notes of hops and some malty touches. Sweetish, malty flavour, with estery notes and hoppy touches. Mild, malty afteraste. Well, drinkable but nothing very exciting. Rather sweet for the style.

Received a four pack and tulip glass under my tree this year, picked up at the Christmas market in Metz. Deep copper hue, faint head. Spicy smell, with just the right amount of carbonation. A nice take on the Belgian style wih some added spiceness for Christmas. Different from the German Christmas beers I have been drinking...a nice change of pace.
