3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma of candysugar and hay. Taste reveals hints of alcohol and belgian yeast. Smooth mouthfeel. Very good beer, but the alcogol could have been hidden a bit better to get the highest scores.

Bottle from Vinmonopolet. Pours hazy dark golden with a big white head. Intriguing aroma, sweet flowers,yeast and coriander. Taste is sweet, thick and almost syrupy sticky with a good spicy counterweight. Not bad.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
pours golden yellow-orange with a nice frothy head, lots of active CO2 streams. Medium malts on the nose. A super creamy mouthfeel upfront, transitions into flavours of malt, orange, bread, wheat, light hops, light yeast, finishes lightly tingly, sweet (6/10), and a mild bitter finish with a crisp bite. Medium complexity, medium depth, great transitions, good carry, excellent drinkability.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
For some reason the name "Winterlude" seems prototypically Canadian to me... damn those Zip Zap Zoup books. Smells of alcohol, molasses, and... nothing else. Tastes of molasses, pine, and malt. But in a good way... but not that much. Still cloying. Many of my friends hate IPAs but I love them. Many people love tripels but I don’t care for them. IPAs are way to bitter for some, tripels are way to sweet for me. Different strokes.

Beautiful bottle. Cloudy golden pour with a thick, frothy head. Huge aromas of citrus, hops, malt, floral bouquet, ammonia. Sweet and tart on first sip. Citrus and hops dominating with a prevelant alcohol warmth finishing slightly bitter. Full bodied with mild carbonation.
Really like Winterlude.

Buona birra si ma non la trova nulla di trascendentale, abbastanza normale senza ne infamia ne lode.
