POLK (2219) - Hørning, DENMARK - JUL 27, 2011
Hazy orange color with a rich head. Aroma is sweet. Good caramel flavour. Very good Belgian christmas beer.
Koelschtrinker (22074) - KÃ¶ln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 5, 2011
Süßlicher Antrunk mit deutlichen Kräuternoten und dezenter Herbe. Die Kräuternoten werden zunehmend süßer, ansonsten wird das Bier aber schnell milder. Zum Ende ist es das helle Malz, das sehr süß und etwas alkoholisch wirkt. Süßmalziger, etwas plörriger Abgang. 8/7/8/7/7/7

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 (17334) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 7, 2011

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.

26/12/2010 - 33cl bottle @ Heeren van Liedekercke, Denderleeuw (Belgium)sfhodense (4788) - Odense NØ, DENMARK - DEC 8, 2010
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 "spéciale Belge", but not really a christmas ale.
Pours amber with a beige head. Aroma is caramel, clove, orange peal and light grassy hop. Flavour is sweet caramel, light butterscotch, grassy hop, fruit, clove and orange peal. rand (1920) - SWITZERLAND - NOV 26, 2010
Bottle 33 cl from Le Grain d’Orge in Neuchâtel (CH). Coppery dress, cream colored foam and nervous sparkling. Fruity flavors of malt, orange, bread and candy. Well balanced beer, malt and citrus fruits, soft with bouquet of spices and point of acidity. Finale fruity and spicy. sebletitje (10477) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JUN 7, 2010
33cl bottle, amber, zhite head.
aroma, candi sugar, some floral hops, yeasty, dark fruits with a lingering sugary nose and malts.
flavors, caramel malts followed by dark sugar and a touch of corn sweetness mixed with some dark fruits?
W as expecting something that had more fruit xmas punch to the palate. wimpie133 (381) - Brugge, BELGIUM - APR 13, 2010
Bottle, 33 cl. Amber coloured beer with mediium white head. Smell of hops, some malts, light sweetness and spices. Taste is hoppy, dry, surrounded with some malts and sweetness. Not what I expect from a Christmas beer, but also lacking a bit in pallet. Not the strongest style of the Tongerlo beers.
