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.

Rund, søtlig og behagelig, men uten noen egentlig karakter. En litt kjedelig øl, men god likevel. Balansert sødme, litt tørr ettersmak.

Bottle from Sugaya. Sweet dark fruit, candi sugar, gentle spice. Light translucent brown, Some roast, moves to berries, caramel, and spice, with a moderate sweet finish. Very light body for a winter brew. Tasty. Doesn’t hit very hard at any point. Mild and pleasant.

Alengrin (2351) - BELGIUM - NOV 7, 2014
De Koninck’s answer to Palm Dobbel in a sense, a darker (deep copper), fuller, creamier and sweeter version of the famous ’Bolleke’, with the unmistakable De Koninck yeast and hop bitterish finish. Nothing too impressive.

Dark amber with a thin white head. Aromas of apples and yeast. Taste slightly sweet with trace of sourness. Mouthfeel fairly thin. Finish quite acerbic.

Icedwarf (394) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - JUN 8, 2014
Donker bruin bier met weinig schuim. Smaak is kruidig en hoppig met chokolade, niet zoet. Blijft redelijk lang hangen.

Bottle. It pours a clear amber body under a small, dense, off-white head. Rather sugary aroma, brown sugar and a faint spiced touch. Some alcohol too actually. Caramel and yellow apples. Quite sugary on the palate, medium to full-bodied and with a soft carbonation. Bitterness too, at an appropriate level. Bitter, sweet, caramel finish. Well, sure decent, but sort of unbalanced, and far from a winner. 140426

Bottle.Pours amber with an off-white head. Aroma of red apples, malt, caramel, fruitiness and bread crust. Flavor is sweet and fruity with some caramel, toffee, red apples and brown sugar. Medium body, average carbonation.

Bottle 330ml @ Geokkjer
Pours clear deep golden with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, caramel, sugar and banana. Taste is medium sweet and light bitter. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonaiton is soft.

Dark copper pour with great head. Nose has some nice spice complexity but it’s a bit too dry and tannic on the palate. Finishes very clean with a bit of bitterness.
