Helder blond bier met witte schuimkraag. Geur: mout, zoete appel, ietwat perzik en honing. Smaak: moutzoetig, karamel, appel. Redelijk volmondig voor een pils. Weinig koolzuurprikkel. Afdronk: lichtjes bitter, droog, peer.

KansaiBeerLvrs (4912) - Kyoto, JAPAN - DEC 1, 2016
Lets start off December with Slaghmuylders Kerstbier which is a 5.2% Belgian Blonde Christmas beer. Its a brass color with a thin head and a fruity vinous aroma featuring plums & figs with a sweet bread like malt character. Medium bodied with a sandpaper like carbonation and a dry finish. First you get wine, raisins, plums, some booziness then a dense bready character. The taste that lingers in my mouth is a sweet fruity hit.

Clear golden, good frothy white head, recedes slowly, good lacing; aroma malty, corn, grass; tastemedium sweet and bitter, malty, hint of citrus, average duration, soft sweetbitter finish, metallic and herbal notes; medium body, oily texture, average carbonation; not what you expect from a xmas beer but a decent lager.

Thank you! Sampled 330 ml. bottle @ Kerstbierfestival Essen 2015. Apparently uses a small percentage of corn according to the booklet. A Christmas pilsner is truly an odd thing in Belgium, one of a kind for certain. Clear golden, small white head. Nose is oily, quite metallic, sugar, corn, sweet & oily, touch esters. Taste is oily, metallic, white sugar, sugar, corn,.. Metallic, corn, esters body. Rather dull & not much better than some of the more agreeable pale lagers.

I have no idea why they call this Pilsener a christmas beer. Its a rather ordinary pilsener.

Bire spciale de Nol .. Assurment spciale puisquelle est en fermentation basse, et dun niveau abv mdiocre de 5,2 %!! Pour complter le tout, elle contient du mas!! Mon exemplaire avait dpass sa date de 2 mois. Couleur dor clair brillant, la clart nette. Bulles fines, mais peu nombreuses et lentes. Mousse blanche flocons moyens, en nappage de surface. Armes de malt pils, houblon sec, mas. 1re bouche souple, au bon ensemble malt/houblon, mais trs pils. Arrire-bouche frache, linaire. 2me lensemble malt/houblon doux et quilibr. Arrire-bouche trs simple, un peu houblonne. 3me la grande douceur, mais le mas passe trop. Arrire-bouche clean, mais sans complexit. Longueur avec douceur et petit malt. Jambes groupes, lisses mais belles. Alcool correct pour une pilsener, mais loin dune kerst!!! Finale douce, sans faiblesse mais sans surprise non plus. CONCLUSION: pas du tout une mauvaise bire, mais quel dshonneur de fter Nol avec une fermentation basse!!! et qui plus est de 5,2 % abv!!! Cest la fte lenvers!!! Seule consolation, cest ma meilleure pilsener lheure actuelle ...

Helder geel bier met weinig schuim. Smaak is licht bitter hoppig en best goed maar niet echt bijzonder. Niet dat het slecht is maar vreemd dat dit een kerstbier is.

1/9/2008 4:19:55 PM Bottle from Cracked Kettle. Yellow, with a tall head. Citrus nose, corn too. Taste is soapy cardboard. Some fruit - pineapple, citrus - but also really chalky. Finish was smooth, perhaps, but not much to reccomend this one. [Gone] bad perhaps?
