KansaiBeerLvrs (5141) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 29, 2015
Bottle on sale at Cave a Bulle. Page 24 Biere de Noël is an amber winter ale 6.9% picked up at Cave a Bulles in Paris and drunk there during my trip. It pours a deep reddish brown with a thick beige head. The nose is a malty sweet breadiness with a touch of spices. Med-light bodied with a soft pillowy mouthfeel. The taste is nutty, boozy, cinnamon biscuits and sugared plums. Seasonally appropriate flavor profile. A pretty average Christmas beer.

Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAY 5, 2010
Bottle RBWG 2010. Pours a nice medium amber with a low to mod carb and a medium to small head- lasting. Aroma is nutty, toasty and earth with some moderate caramel sweetness and light herbal phenolic yeastiness. Flavor is earth, toast, herbs light nuttiness, some honey sweetness and a good fresh doughiness and lightly burnt bread with good grassy bitter hop finish- nice.

Miksu (5053) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - DEC 27, 2008
0.75 l bottle. Amber color with fading head. Sweetish aroma with toffee, dark caramel, berries, vanilla, lemon, some tartness, some fruitiness and some musty notes of cellar. Sweetish caramelly, toffeish, musty and slightly metallic flavor with raisins and figs. A bit too sweet and full bodied, the biere de garde aromas and flavors are masked. Although mustiness is typical for biere de gardes, here the musty character is kind of dull.

Cavie (4717) - Arlington, Texas, USA - FEB 1, 2010
Bottle courtesy of ericandersnavy. Amber appearance. Smells of amber malts and light honey. Sharp taste that fades very quickly. Very malty flavor. Some honey sweetness with gentle fruit. Finishes easy with a tight buttery sweetness.

3.2
sayravai (4710) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 12, 2008
Bottled, 0.75l. Clear amber - hazy with yeast - with a small, partly lasting head. Very mild aroma of caramely malt, berries, nuts, cinnamon, and some other spices. Caramely-malty flavor with yeast and lots of Belgian-style fruitiness. Spices are present, but not as dominant as in the aroma. Medium body with quite a lot of carbonation for this brewery. Something between Leffe and Jacobsen Golden Naked, which equals roughly something ok, but nothing very interesting.
