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.

As De koninck Winter, from beer-planet. clear brown, smooth light brown head. caramelly, toasty and malty aroma, very faint bitter hoppy note too. faint dried fruits , faint banana. Flavor is dried fruits, banana, bitter malts, malts, faint but well placed flowery hoppy balance.bordering on too sweet, but the bitterness, the flowers, the hops match the sweetness very well.

damn! wasnt expecting this to be good, realy, but it was ! bought at wijnegemse drankenhal this winter. i like koninck but i like palm better. and i like palm better than dobbel palm, so, logicaly id like this the least.. well its actualy the best. they took all the good caracteristic tastes of a koninck, isoladed it, made it stronger ( dont know WHAT they did but this is what it tasted like to me ) and its absolutely very well done . i wouldnt always drink this but ive tasted it withoud any regrets and il buy it again next year ! i did hear that this years version was good, but last years wastn.. so its kinda depending on the year i gues...
