COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Mirrwinter is ons winterbier. Mirrwinter is Twents voor kerst, vandaar de toepasselijke kerstster. Zoals gebruikelijk bij ons geldt een bier waarop de bomen van de mageler es staan als een signaal voor een bier dat afwijkt van de standaardbieren. Mirrwinter is een warm donkerrood bier om te drinken voor de open haard. Dit bier is volzoet en, maar we zijn de hop zeker niet vergeten! Een bijzonder bier met waar zoet en bitter vechten om een plaats Jenerverbessen bij het eind van het brouwproces maken het geheel af.

Thanks to WillemsUrenkel for that bottle. Looks really good. Beer in the glass dark brown, nice head. Starts strong-malty, fine spicy, A bit woody-scratchy. Spicy-malty finish, still quite strong. Warming. Nice!

JulienHuxley (3341) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - JAN 20, 2014
Bottle at Gouda Winterbier Fest. Murky brown pour, small ring of yellow head. Aroma is worty, vegetal, yeasty, peas, ginger. Taste is malty, wort, boozy notes, light toasty flavors. Full body, medium carbonation. Had this beer on good recommendation, must have been a bad bottle, because this was quite terrible

caesar (5295) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - DEC 24, 2013
Bottled, BB 11-2015, large sample. Clear ruby color, big rocky light brown head. Aroma is spicy, clove, nutmeg, hint of anise, some roasted malts, some licorice, hint of coffee, autumn leaves. Quite bitter taste, bit sweet, spicy, bit dry. Im not a big fan of spiced beers, but this one does the trick for the winter season definitely. Great balance, great brew!

WillemsUrenkel (598) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - NOV 28, 2013
0,33 l bottle bought directly at the brewery. New label design. Pours dark redbrown, not-transparent. Small short living beige head. Berriefruits and woody liquorice on the nose. Starts very smooth, a lot of dark fruits. Alcoholic warm. In the middle part malt and spicy, light sour bitterness. Full body. Hints of peppermint and koreander in the late background. A little bit sticky at the end but a very good one.

jmgreenuk (4772) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - NOV 24, 2013
Bottle from ABC Beers, Den Haag. Poured a clear dark amber with a frothy off white head and some broken lace. The aroma is sweet raisins, caramel and the yeast is not far away. The flavour is sweet with a bitter liqourice palate and a short bitter finish. I liked this a lot, but the use of local yeast does not give an authentic brew, which should be a little smoother. Nevertheless, this is a beer that I would buy over and over again.

Borresteijn (4856) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - AUG 21, 2013
33cl Bottle from the Rooie Dop brewdungeon. Deep ruby-amber colour, light-beige head. Aroma is very malty sweet, caramel, not unlike e.g. Paulaner Salvator, forest fruits, red berries. Flavour is quite sweet, malty, caramel, lots of red berries and forest fruits, Christmas cake, nice bitter finish with some juniper. Medium-bodied, rich in flavour. Nice, but really a dessert beer.

Vaiz (3523) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - AUG 15, 2013
Bottle at home. Hazy amber to brown pout, huge light brown head. Aroma is full of red fruits, spicy, roasty, some licorice and woody. Flavor is very sweet, fruity, bitter finish and with a huge body. Massive brew and very well balanced. Lovely.

bartlebier (1873) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - JUL 30, 2013
33cl bottle, bedankt bierkoning. - Had to top this in mirrsummer due to the bottle not being wholly airtight after transport. Aromatic nose of ripe red berries, caramel, currants and cardamon & cinnamon. Glad to learn juniper berries were added to give this an authentic Dutch jenever touch, sparing you the kopstoot of sinking one in your glass. Pretty fresh, subtle, due to a refined yeast strain comparatively easy drinking for a spiced sugar bomb in summer, esp. compared to some far stickier Wallonian Scotches.

Douberd (2479) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - JUN 17, 2013
Bottle, 330 ml, at home.Poured into a tulip glass. ABV 7% Opens with a loud pop. Colour is a deep red ruby one, a tiny bit hazy, ut beautiful. On top sits a huge, beige head, thick and soapy, with excellent retention. It took ages to collapse. Light lacing left on the glass. Aroma is fruity. Red grapes, cherries, caramel, lots of spices. Nice taste. Brings red wine to mind, again lots of spices, nutmeg I dare say. Sweet, with ripe fruits and sugars. Aftertaste is full of spices too. Medium thickness on the body, average carbonation. A bit sticky on the palate. Overall, very interesting brew. I am drinking it in the summer and it’s highly drinkable, one can only imagine the drinkabiity rising during the Christmas holidays or the winter in general.
