4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
VINTAGE 2004. Two years old.
More fullbodied if you can imagine that. The alcoholic taste can you still find, but it’s more friendly.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Stuff has a murky amber color with a fading tan head. Tart & fruity aroma with underlying sweetness. Slightly musty with berry hints. Signs of oxidation, belgian buttery malts and a toffee hint. The flavor is similiar with some tart fruity notes upfront of berries, plummy notes, green grapes, caramel apples. Some dark fruits as well, especially figs with a later toffeeish finish. Pretty good, but not exceptional.

Color was a hazy ruby/brown; with a medium white head. Aroma was yeast, plum, fruit and spice. Taste was much of the same, with some candy sugar. Pretty good warming finish.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark ruby beer, with a big white/beige foam. The aroma is spicy and yeasty. Notes of spices and grass in the flavour, that is not overly sweet. The finish has some bitterness that lingers in your mouth. Balanced, complex and warming. A really good Christmas beer.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 ml bottle into a Tulip glass. Pours a deep mahogany brown with orangey hints. An off white thick head tops this one. Aroma of deep sweet malts and plums with Belgian candied sugar tossed in the bunch. The flavor begins with an almost overly sweet malt blast which moves into a figgy and plum filled body, ending on somewhat of a bittered apple note. The apples definitely come out more as this warms. In the finish comes a tiny bit of an alcohol singe, but its very well built into the beer. Another very enjoyable brew from St. Feuillien!!

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
75 cL bottle. Pours brown with light brown and creamy head. Fruity and caramel smell with alcohol elements. Sweet taste with aroma hops that gives taste of fruit together with malts that provides darker roasted like notes. Caramel taste too. Round and well balanced into the aftertaste. Very drinkable beer. Well suited for the wide audience as a good belgian x-mas beer experience.

Dark brown. Pretty good. Strong, but doesn’t taste nearly as strong as it actually is. Very malty.
