COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A Strong Belgian Ale, deep orange in colour with a lasting creamy head, spicy hop aroma from our own Hallertau and Tettnanger hop flowers, and a complex malty finish. Brewed with almost religious fervour with extra long maturation, dry hopped in serving tanks mean this one will continue to develop till we run out. Great Gift.... Only available in December.

A wonderful Christmas Ale. Lovely carbonation. Lingering head. Lovely spices, in both the aroma and flavour. Worth a second bottle.

Muggus69 (2494) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - JUN 2, 2017
330mL bottle from Beer Love online. Bottled 29/11/16 Dense pale copper body, small off-white head. Bread malts upfront - dark brown sugar, nutmeg spice & ginger; doesnt give away too much. Thick body, good weight, warming, luscious. More spice on the palate - nutmeg, cinnamon, clove, ginger, glace orange to accompany rich dark brown sugar & bready/pudding sort of notes. Touch of bitterness, warm finish. Nice winter warmer.

Maris (1516) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - DEC 11, 2016
From a 330ml bottle on 11/12/2016. Pours a light amber with a small head. The nose is light spice. Taste wise there’s a bit of Christmas cake, Belgian yeast and a bit of spice. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Not bad but fails to inspire any real enthusiasm.

KeefOz (1842) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - DEC 20, 2015
Poured a translucent murky orangey amber with 5mm of off-white foam that diminished slowly to a collar that laced OK. carbonation moderate with fine to medium bubbles. Aroma strongly of mixed spices and possible pepper with hints of caramel; no obvious alcohol. Taste of mixed spices with hints of sweet malt; alcohol well hidden. Medium body. A nice warming winter ale.
