As the days grow shorter and frost becomes snow, our BELGIAN fREEZE WINTER ALE is the perfect remedy to loosen the spirits. This deep amber tonic is brewed with lots of roasted caramel malt for body and warmth to bring in the holidays and see you through the spring.

Drank from a twelve ounce bottle purchased at Buffalo Wild Wings in Parsippany, NJ poured into a pint glass. Pours a beautiful amber color with no head. Smells super sweet. Has a strong alcohol taste, but not a bad strong belgian by Riverhorse!

From NOTES. A: Sweet maltiness. Raisin, and other dried light fruits (apricot, peaches). Some spicy notes, i.e. clove. A: Very dark, mahogany colored brew, with a nice tan head. T: Basically follows the smell, except with more raisin and more booziness. P: Medium to thin in body with little carbonation, slight alcohol burn. O: Not an overly complex beer and for the 8% abv a bit disapointing for complexity but a very drinkable beer.

Dacrza (666) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - APR 10, 2015
DATE TASTED: April 10, 2015... GLASSWARE: Affligem chalice... OCCASION: enduring what hopefully is the last cold night of the spring... APPEARANCE: flourishing, fizzing, off-white head settles from a cloud-like fluff to a consistent thickness; opaque amber body that allows little light through... AROMA: earthy enough with grass and herbs to suggest Summit hops, with a sightly spicy aspect; the backbone of each breathe is the caramel malt--loses its impact after a few swirls... PALATE: somewhat active feeling on the tongue; bubbly mouthfeel slips to a dry, lingering finish; thick overall... TASTE: an underwhelming nondeScript mix of lightly sweet and bitter--surprising for a strong ale... OVERALL: a straight-forward, alcohol-masking winter warmer that drinks well and right; a beer that accomplishes its goal...

This beer is filled with alcohol and is absolutely delicious. Malty and sweet, this beer is great on tap. I suspect that a few of these would put me on my ass, and it'd be worth it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 ounce bottle. Hazy dark reddish brown color. Large fluffy beige head. Rich sweet malt aroma has notes of caramel, brown sugar and dark fruit. Tart toasted malt flavor with more brown sugar and dark fruits. Chewy and full bodied. Notes of vanilla and herbal hops in the finish.

Dark amber with a bit of head. Nose is very bready, Belgian yeast, spiced note, orange peel. Taste pretty much matches, spiced, bready, malty, some banana esters. Like a bad baba bread thing going on. It's just not very good.

Really nice mouthfeel but otherwise average all around. Murky Copper pour w/ a tan head & decent lacing. The aroma is just malty & otherwise boring. The taste is clean & crisp but I would expect more from a "Belgian." It is quite soft & lovely on the palate but the lack of flavor really holds this back!

From tap. Pours hazy to murky amber with a small off white head. Aroma is caramelish and toasted malty. Toasted malty, phenolic and estery. Slight herbal. Bitter and dry finish.
