COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

draft – sampled @ De Groote Witte Arend: A: clear wine-hued brown with a white head – T: bitter winter spices, yeast, caramel malt, touch candy sugar, slightly sweet upfront with a bitter hop aftertaste with S being same as T- B: on the slightly light side – ok offering from the Koninck – seemingly oddly uncommon given the all-around presence of the regular one over here

kramer (5063) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 4, 2011
As Arsenaaltje, at Oud Arsenaal. Pours a cloudy dark gold body with a frothy white head that fell to a creamy dense mass. The nose is your typical Belgian Blond nose, some bready malts, some wet hay, with light yeastiness and fruitiness. The flavor is fairly clean and light with dry bready malts. A minimal hop note on the finish. Light bodied, rather soft and a touch creamy in texture with nice light gentle carbonation. Nice easy drinking beer, on par with most other Blondes.

OleR (4802) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 6, 2011
0.33L bottle bought in Brussels, enjoyed at home. Good-looking. Dim ruby-brown color. Dense stable eggshell colored head. Mildly spiced, caramelly and nutty malt aroma. A nice sourish note, probably from some Münchener malts added. Taste is much of the same; Semi-dry, nutty and caramelly, with spice tones an a touch of sourish dark bread. A fair amount of bittering hops. Clean mouthfeel. Less than medium full. Easy drinkable and tasty. I really like this one.

reebtogi (4311) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 5, 2011
Bottle poured amber-brown with long lasting beige head and decent lacing. Aromas of caramel and nuts with a little chocolate. Tastes of caramel and nutty bitterness. A nice mouthfeel from the carbonation and body.

planky84 (2143) - , Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 2, 2011
Bottle at Chris O’s pre GBBF shindig. I’ve got ’13’ written down, no idea what that all means, maybe a new 13% version? If there is I can’t find it so I’ll rate what I had here! Dark brow pour with a beige head. Raisins, butterscotch, toffee and chocolate aroma. Caramel, chocolate and heavy malt presence. Heavy, sweet finish.

peermac (59) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 6, 2011
Rund, søtlig og behagelig, men uten noen egentlig karakter. En litt kjedelig øl, men god likevel. Balansert sødme, litt tørr ettersmak.
