UPDATED: DEC 22, 2016 Découverte dans la Berry Christmas (#22). Bière brune cuivrée. Étonnement houblonnée au nez. En bouche on retrouve une belle amertume dû au houblon, un petit retour sur du café et malt. Surpenante bière qui marie le houblon à une du malt bien torréfié. Superbe pour l’hiver. Vraiment une très belle découverte. Gangstergafje (1231) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - DEC 22, 2016
Saveur Bière Beery Christmas # 22. The beer has a nice reddish brown copper color. The beer is quite clear, with a tiny haziness. On top of the beer a normal layer of offwhite foam is formed. The foam collapses a bit quickly, leaving a nice drape.
The smell of the beer is nice. I smell nice average hop aroma’s. I smell nice American hop aromas, which give the beer nice smells of pineapple, some citrus fruits and pine. It is rather sweet and slightly sour, combined with that nice hoppy bitterness. I also smell a nice toasty malt aroma, giving both sweets and bitters. The balance in the smell is nice.
The flavour is nice to. I smell nice strong hop flavours, giving pineapple, some citrus and pine. The toasty malt is a bit stronger in the flavour than in the smell. The taste is a bit richer. Strong bitters, sweets and delicate sours are in good balance. Hop and malt flavours support each other nicely.
The body of the beer average. The body is medium and the texture is rather smooth. The carbonation is nice and strong. The finish is a bit dry. But all in all, a good beer.
