750ml brown bottle with a freshness date.

Good lacing with a deep rusty amber hue. Smells of candied fruit, pepper phenols, apple skin, rosemary, & pudding. Nice crisp bite within the creamy full-ish body. Warming alcohol, spicy, melon rind, hint of bubble gum, rosemary, bready, yeasty, big raisin tone, orange pulp, & mild caramel.

Minus the spicing this does fully remind me of the Belgian Christmas beers which I hunt each winter season. Very recommended.

Light brown in color and rather hazy. A thin layer of white foam covers about a third of the top of the beer. Brussels lacing. Aroma of Rosemary is present but held in check by bready malt. The spiced flavor is fairly bold in the taste and easily dominates it. The aftertaste is pretty much amber malt. The mouth is dry, light and crisp for the alcohol content.
