Sigmund (6958) - Tau, NORWAY - DEC 19, 2006
500 ml brown bottle, courtesy of Cardinal pub, Stavanger. Bottle conditioned (?), ABV is 5.5%. Clear amber to brown colour, moderate head. Strong sweetish and hoppy aroma, notes of strawberries, blackcurrants, figs, caramel and Christmas pudding. Pleasant flavour with moderately sweet fruity notes, some biscuity notes and caramel too. Distinct hops throughout. Soft and pleasant mouthfeel. A nice Christmas ale this one!

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - DEC 19, 2006
Cask at Oliver Twist, Stockholm. Clear reddish amber colour, low white foam. Malty sweet aroma of toffee, milky chocolate and almond with a subtle but fresh enough hop aroma of soily and slightly grassy hops. Malty flavour of fudge, crackers and whipped cream with a well-balanced aftertaste of crackers, oranges and soily brittish jops.

Ungstrup (35695) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 25, 2006
A slightly hazy orange beer with a light orange head. The aroma is sweet malty with notes of English hops giving it a light spicy and floral note, to accompany the fruity notes. The flavor is sweet malty with fruity notes of oranges and peaches, as well as spicy, floral, and slightly dusty notes, leading to a bitter end. OK, but for a Christmas beer I find it boring.

Bottled.Strange aroma upon opening.Flat and toffee like. A bit sticky, clinging to your throat. A weird beer or did I just have a bad bottle?
