MoritzF (9803) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - JAN 8, 2008
(25cl bottle) Clear, golden colour with a medium-sized, slowly lacing foamy white head. Slightly dusty, moderately sweet pale malt aroma, slightly wheaty and honey-fruity with notes of lemon. Sweet-bitter flavour, medium bodied with slightly fizzy carbonation. Pale malt character, moderately fruity, zesty taste; quite dry, slightly bitter and spicy finish. Nothing special.

25 cL bottle, Kerstbierfestival 2007 in Essen/Belgium as #78 Nol/Christmas/Weihnacht. Pours clear and golden yellow with a lacing white head. Slight mouldy aroma. Flavour is sweet malty with a little metallic edge. Ends with a mellow yeasty and mild mouldy note. Nice but close to mediocre.

JoeinDahlem (1480) - Berlin, GERMANY - DEC 8, 2007
Leave it to a brewery known for its old browns to mark the holidays with a freshly hoppy blonde. My 25 cL pours old gold with a receding lacy head. Somewhat faint aroma is sweetish, caramel-malty. Flavor has a refreshing, earthy bitterness (for a Belgian) and light sweetness. Nice balance. Average carbonation is tight and leans toward lively. Maybe not special, but not bad at all.

BartC (727) - Lichtaart, BELGIUM - SEP 24, 2007
Gold with a small white head. Herbal but also sweet aroma. Balanced flavor: a bit sweet and spicy with a bitter and alcoholic end.

leaparsons (10452) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 19, 2007
Bottle. Golden brown with a small head. Aromas are spices and pepper with tea. Pear and caramel with dry, earthy notes. Flavours are grain with dry pear. Soap and herbal notes. Poorer than expected.
