Bottle 33 cl from Le Grain dOrge in Neuchtel (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.

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.

drpimento (3281) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 25, 2010
Good beer overall. Nothing really special, just solid good..Poured with an off white foamy, frothy head that settled down shortly and some lace. Color is a clear medium amber. Aroma is yeasty, malty, and spicey. Flavor is similar with a tinge of sour in the background. A little sweetness, but really almost dry. Great body and excellent carbonation. A few hints of alcohol, but thats fine. Nice finish. Could easily have another. Have to be careful though.

eManu (540) - Kuala Lumpur & Brussels, BELGIUM - JAN 17, 2010
Pours a hazy amber color with an off-white head. Aroma of malts, citrus fruits, yeast and spices. Flavors of malts, herbs, fruits as some lemons, yeasts and spices. Good carbonation, bitter dry, with a bit of a smokey finish. Not what I expected for a Xmas brew.

tdtm82 (1700) - Essex, ENGLAND - DEC 13, 2009
UPDATED: JAN 14, 2010 Poured from a green not orange labelled bottle - 33cl - into a goblet style glass. Lovely white head, very fluffy and creamy. Texture a bit dull but very clean looking. Can smell herbs and citrus spices and cherry. A lovely smoke pours out of the bottle. Can taste a clean lager styled beer, good balance and can detect citurs, herbs and candy. A good beer.
