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.

The beer pours deep amber to almost brown color with a modest light tan head that is semi-creamy in texture and the lace a surrounding sheet upon the glass. Nose has a plum like aroma backed up by sweet malt, fresh and clean to the sense, start is sweet with a nice grain profile. Finish is stern in acidity and the hops pleasantly spicy in their bite, quite dry and the aftertaste long lasting, a fine drinking beer, went great with the food.

I wasn’t incredibly fond of this stuf... Big head, some spice, but a little too much alcohol in the flavor

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.

Engelsmann (651) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 6, 2004
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
