COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer has a generous head - compact and firm. Its slightly brown colour is the result of the roasted barley. It has a dark ruby brown colour and a very intense aroma. The aromatic herbs and spices used greatly enhance its delicious smell. This beer is full-bodied with a smoothness that is the result of the synergy of caramelized malts, carefully controlled fermentation and long cold storage. St Feuillien Cuvée de Noël has a very subtle bitterness that is the dominant flavour in this harmonious ale that strikes a perfect balance between all the different ingredients.

33cl bottle. Pours a lovely creamy/hazy brown with a nice head. The nose has apples, grapes and milk chocolate. The taste has apples and prunes with a layer of caramel and hazelnuts (praline, I guess) over the top. The palate is beautiful with a medium to large structure and texture and a lovely elegant finish. Overall, this is excellent.

Version von 2016 aus der Flasche 2016-12 getrunken. Sehr schönes belgisches Weihnachtsbier. Überraschende Steigerung nach der enttäuschenden 2012er Version.

Dark brown beer with a huge beige foam. Spicy and malty aroma. Semi-sweet, very malty, a bit syrupy caramel. Medium bodied.

puren (1147) - Gdańsk, POLAND - APR 13, 2017
PREZENTACJA: klarowne, brązowo-rubinowe, obfita żółtawa piana opada do trwałej milimetrowej warstwy, nie oblepia szkła;
AROMAT: słodki, kandyzowane owoce, przejrzałe brzoskwinie, syrop klonowy, pumpernikiel, rodzynki, rum;
ODCZUCIE: ciało średnie, wysoko nasycone, lekko puszyste, ale też szczypiące w język, troszkę wykleja podniebienie, alkohol subtelnie rozgrzewa przełyk;
SMAK: mleczna czekolada, metal, syrop klonowy, niska drewniana goryczka;
OGÓLNIE: bardzo pijalne, mimo słodyczy i dużej zawartości alkoholu; ma świetny zapach przywodzący na myśl barley wine, smak psuje silna metaliczność.

Ritzn (1534) - GERMANY - MAR 12, 2017
Murky brown with medium brown head. Aroma is christmas spices, raisins, quince, figs, slightly burnt caramel, phenols, quadrupel stuff. Taste is intense bitter phenols and spicy yeasty stuff, some fig sweetness. The late bitter stuff ruins it a bit. Wild yeasts gone wild here.

madnorwegian (235) - FRANCE - MAR 12, 2017
Best Xmas beer I’ve ever had. Not one of those syrupy sugar bombs like most xmas brews. This beer has class. Beautiful spiced mulled aromas that are truely unique: clove, ginger, dates but also candied citrus. Great stuff
