3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Schouskjelleren. Hazy golden with a small, bubbely, white head. Lightly wheaty, fruity and spicy aroma with a hint of citrus. Spices are dominating the flavour and I have difficulties to tell what kind of spices there is. After a while the anise becomes quite obvious to me, the others are hard to tell apart, but they give some Christmas associations. Medlium body with a fairly soft carbonation. A bit new and strange at the same time as it is a bit familiar too. Reminds me slighlty of some candy, cough syrup or some liqueur. Hmmm, maybe "the King of Denmark" candy!? or Pernod? - probably because of the anise. Nice and quite different Christmas beer. Well integrated alchol and a certain freshness with citrus, fruits and spices, not just caramel water with alcohol.
From tap @Schouskjelleren. Low white head. Hazy golden boden body with an orangey hue. Perfumed spice aroma along with a whiff of sweetish wheet malts. Spiced up flavor. Some lemony fruit tones, a sourish-sweet, light malt base, and hint of yeast. Lively in the mouth. Sharp spicy lemon-fruity ending. [28.11.12] RuneStumo (2685) - Haugesund, NORWAY - NOV 29, 2012
21.11.2012. On tap at Schouskjelleren brygghus. Golden yellow colour with white head. Wheaty aroma with lots of floral and spicy hops. Strong nots of both citrus and coriander. There is really a lots of flavours here. Yeast, citrus and different spices. This beer is more like a spicy Belgian blonde, than a christmas beer. But I love it!

This has improved vastly with a few extra weeks in the tank.
Gazy gold, pearly carbonation.
Soft wheat base. Shte spices have blended in, but one can still detect white pepper and citrus. Belgian yeast, saison-like tones, a bit funky. larsga (7540) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 16, 2012
Medium white head. Hazy opaque pale yellow body. Yeasty spicy coriander aroma with paradise seeds notes. Dry-sweetish coriander, lavendel and fruit taste with floral yeasty notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, mealy mouthfeel. Dry-bitter floral yeasty lavender aftertaste with strong coriander and citrus notes. It’s not bad, but too sharply spicy and too yeasty. (0.25l draft at brewpub.)

Hazy deep yellow colour with a fine off white head. Fresh spicy and balanced sweet wheat aroma. Moderate sweetness and a medium body. A nice spicy and mild round wheat flavour with some fruity notes. More christmasbeer like this please!
