Koelschtrinker (18740) - Kln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 5, 2011
Slicher Antrunk mit deutlichen Kruternoten und dezenter Herbe. Die Kruternoten werden zunehmend ser, ansonsten wird das Bier aber schnell milder. Zum Ende ist es das helle Malz, das sehr s und etwas alkoholisch wirkt. Smalziger, etwas plrriger Abgang. 8/7/8/7/7/7

Abio (1859) - Waasland, BELGIUM - JAN 23, 2011
Amber coloured beer with a medium head hat looks pretty good. Smell is grasses, spices, malts. Tasting starts with malts and spices, the yeast gets trough, not that spices as many other winterbrews. A bit more power should be welcome, a bit to watery for me, but what I taste is not bad.

FatPhil (15129) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 7, 2011
330ml bottle (Cambrinus, Brugge)
6 classic sweet mild blond aroma.
4 Rich orange, sticky doughy head
7 Yes, I know this is Haacht, but this is a quality blond. Rich malty body, gently bitter hops, good balance.
4 Full palate, smooth and a little sweet. Pleasant carbonation. Finnish gently hoppy, certainly quite muted, but they are real green noble hops.
14 Solid Belgian Abbey beer. Covers the alcohol very well.

tderoeck (8774) - Gent, BELGIUM - DEC 27, 2010
26/12/2010 - 33cl bottle @ Heeren van Liedekercke, Denderleeuw (Belgium)

Clear dark orange to light copper red beer. Creamy off-white head, adhesive. Aroma: caramel, banana peal, fruity, some alcohol. MF: flat, light to medium body. Taste: malts, caramel but not sweet, some spices and a little hop. Aftertaste: grape fruits. This would have made a good "spciale Belge", but not really a christmas ale.
