This special ale has been developed in honour of the brewing in the late Middle Ages when the farmers could not work in the fields during the winter months and therefore had time to devote themselves to brewing ale. Winter Koninck is a deep amber-coloured top-fremented ale with 6.5% Alc. vol. and a full-bodied flavour.

UPDATED: NOV 20, 2004 Nice beer - especially I like the big *POP* that goes when you take off the cork....and it has a nice head!

This is the house beer at Oud Arsenaal, Antwerp, brewed for them by De Koninck. The glass I had was labelled 6.5%, but I’ve seen it reported as 5.8% elsewhere. Amber beer (darker than standard De Kon) , with a slightly tan, cream head and ridged lacing. Very quaffable, sweet beer - caramalised sugar abounds, especially in the rooty finish. Pleasant though mysterious beer.

Draft: Pours a clear golden/amber with a small head, Aroma is yeasty and with hints of hops. Flavor is moderate sweet from the malt, combined with a distinct taste of yeast

Amber colour with a big beige head. Sweet spicy aroma with notes of grass. The flavour is dominated by malty sweetness, spices and yeast.

This is a winter beer? Mild aromas, initially striking me as your typical American lager, with some Belgian yeastiness but lacking the depth of the fruit and spice that others describe. Moderate palate--not exactly frothy, but soft. Red/brown with good head production.

Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - OCT 17, 2004
Bottle. Spicy peppery nose. Metallic, dry cherry, dry fruit and yeasty notes. Finish has some black pepper. Reminded me of a dry apple cider.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 13, 2004
Amber color with big beige head. Fruity and apple aroma with hints of alcohol. Fruity start with notes of spices, ending is nicely hopped. Alcohol comes up strongly, but it fits here well. Somehow thin body for 6.5%. Soft and creamy palate. Nice lace. Excellent beer for my taste.
