2012-11-12, bottle at La Fine Mousse, Paris, 6-3-6-3-12=30
Hazy amber color, low carbonation. Better than the last time, but still, the aroma shows some apples (undesired), the flavor is malty and sweetish, with low bitterness and some fruity presence; delicate spices too.

75cl bottle from Auchan, Calais. Chestnut colour with thick off white head. Yeasty, spicey malt aroma, which is great. Candy sugar and dry malt in mouth. Some nice raisiny furit. Quite good hop on the end. Bit of spice. Dry malt fruit is good. One of the better Noel Biere de Garde saxo (18571) - Højbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - APR 24, 2011

Bottled BBE 03/2010, 75cl flip-top.
Clear amber color, no head. Spicey, candy-watermelon-menthol aroma, also slightly cellary. Fizzy carbonation. Crystal sugary malty flavor with light spices and fruity notes. Touch of clove. Typical biere de garde hard mouthfeel and quick finish. These usually taste more like a lager than an ale and this is no exception.

Bottle, 75cl. A clear, dark amber colored beer topped by a dense, light beige head of finger-thick size. Fruity and candy-ish aroma with some notes of toffee. Sweet and fruity flavor with some bitterness and a faint caramel touch. Warming, full-bodied and nicely carbonated. A decent beer, not very Christmas-ish in my book, and lacking on complexity. 110826 brokensail (16449) - Dublin, California, USA - JAN 20, 2014
On tap @ Provisions Market. Orange pour with a nice white head. Nose has some sweet bread, sugar, and caramel notes. Candied apple, spicy hops, and a subtle nuttiness. Tastes quite sweet.
