VDuquerroux (1600) - Airvault, Haut-Poitou, FRANCE - MAY 5, 2017
Bottle, 33cL. Home. A sparkling amber beer with a medium white foamy head ; good retention. Herb, roast, biscuit notes, a bit rough, alcohol notes. Medium dry bitter refreshing, sweet spicy note. Medium good body, silky texture, average carbonation, dry bitter yeasty finish. Overall, enjoyable (13=14-1) ; honestly, good abbey belgian ale but still searching the christmas spirit ??

kaserov (600) - Oviedo, SPAIN - APR 30, 2017
Color dorado anaranjado, turbio, repleto de sedimento, con capa de espuma blanca de tres dedos de grosor (no mucha retención). Aroma a especias, algo de alcohol, humedad (extraño y poco placentero). Sabor a especias (cilantro), frutas, azucar, alcohol. Ligeramente dulce en boca con dosis mínima de amargor final. Recuerda a una Tripel de poco nivel. Ni fu ni fa.

llucmaduell (238) - barcelona, SPAIN - MAR 27, 2017
Una cervesa curiosa per ser de nadal. No s´assembla a les típiques cerveses belgues de Nadal. M´ha agradat però quan la vaig comprar em pensava que seria com la resta de cerveses belgues de nadal

Gedronken met Simon en Quinten, 2e biertje van de avond. Ruikt erg kruidig, smaakt weinig bitter en een beetje droog, niet echt identificeerbare smaken
