COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Top fermented beer which undergoes a secondary fermentation in bottle. It is intense gold, almost orange in color, with aromas of fruit in syrup (pineapple, peach and apricot), candy sugar, bread crust and a note of chives from the Belgian hops of Poperinge. Warm and sweet on the palate with a firm fizzy finish. Strong and structured, sweet and inviting. A tribute to a friend who went missing, who we may meet again one day, just like the sun that is hiding behind the hill.

Winterlude is also named after a Bob Dylan song, a perfect fit since it is a winter warmer. The idea of winter as an interlude representing both the pause before awakening and the oblivion before new life.
This beer is inspired by some varieties of the Belgian Tripels. The hops come from the Poperinge region, a variety I have always been fascinated by. I connected with one of the region’s local farmer and had him set a preferred variety aside from his most recent harvest.
Because it combines incredibly well with food, Winterlude has always made us proud with our catering industry clients.

Ottima triple. Bel colore giallo pieno, leggermente opaco. Schiuma bianca, fine e persistente. Al naso molto profumata, con sentori di frutta e miele. In bocca ha un corpo pieno e resinoso. Sentori dolci e leggermente mie lati anche in bocca, con una gradevolissima speziatura.

UPDATED: MAR 24, 2014 Bottle to tulip glass.
App.: Light, cloudy, yellow with a white foam head

A triple that won’t blow your mind, hard to categorize, but not bad

angel77 (511) - oviedo, SPAIN - MAR 3, 2014
Botella de 33 cl en el lúpulo en enero de 2013, en dos ocasiones y la ultima del lote 080--12. Una estilo triple suave, a pesar de sus 8.8 vol. pero con sabores bastante intensos, refinados dulces afrutados y florales. Buena y refinada con sabores sutiles bien combinados.

Buongiorgio00 (576) - - JAN 26, 2014
Molto molto buona, con un gusto molto ricco che su uno sfondo prevalentemente dolce tratteggia un complesso intreccio di note fruttate, candite e leggere citriche. Il grado alcolico passa abbastanza inosservato e nel complesso si tratta di una birra equilibrata e gustosa.

Dark spicy beer. Aniseed, cinnamon, heat and spice. Good flavour definition albeit a bit short in the palate. Very Belgian in taste.
