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.

bhensonb (14172) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 30, 2008
750 corked & caged bottle from Sonoma Wine Exchange. BB 06.09.08 Aromas of medium dark plum and caramel. Brilliant garnet copper color with tiny bubbles and a beige head. Almost medium body with slightly fizzy carbonation. Flavor is much like an amber - lightly sweet, lightly roasted caramel. Not a great deal of bitter, but arguably enough. The bitter tends to accumulate so the brew tastes better with time. Something of a light, clean and refreshing winter ale.
