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.

EithCubes (5269) - New Jersey, USA - MAR 30, 2012
Bottle by 10/2012. Sweet nose with fruit and yeast, wheat and phenols (and a little singed plastic). Big ruby body with a creamy tan head. Intensely strong flavor, cherry-leaning fruit and, unfortunately, many of the trappings of a messy wheat beer - wheat, cloves, spicy yeast, plastic, and acetone. Light smoked note before the booze begins to shine through at the end. Medium-full body, aggressive heft and alcohol. A mess.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 4, 2012
In bottle at home. Pours a deep golden amber colour with a fair beige head. Aroma of biscuity malt, caramel, yeast and alcohol. Similar flavours with some toffee and fairly present alcohol again. Mild carbonation and an oily mouth-feel.

justm (164) - Essex, ENGLAND - JAN 20, 2012
Tap at Tap East, Stratford, London. Pours a little on the darker side of amber with a thin off-white head. The aroma is a little sour cherry and a hint of caramel. Coriander seed orangeness is also in there. Drying and a little oily on the palate. Taste is of subtle sour cherry, orange, apricot, and a little musty wet wood. There is a dry sour irange aftertaste.
