What the brewery say:

"This sweet malty winter ale has a port-like aroma, oranges and lemons play around the edges of the tongue whilst dried fruit and cinnamon drive home the wonderful warming effect, the walnut aftertaste completes this slice of Christmas time in a glass."

What I say:

500ml brown bottle, best before end of Feb 2011, reviewed 30 Dec 2010. Poured into an 'Abbot Ale' glass tankard. This a bottle conditioned beer, so it was poured carefully and slowly.

Dark red in colour, clear and clean. On top a small off-white crown.

Lambic, sour aroma with plums and sweet malts coming as the beer warmed.

The taste was rich, Christmas pudding type flavours with all sorts of fruit coming into play. Yet that lambic sourness in the smell also had a huge impact on the taste and mouthfeel too. The combination of the richness and lambic feel made this an interesting and certainly different beer.

When cold this beer was poor, but as it warmed it became better and better.
