the smell of the beer promises more than what you eventually get. I smell chocolate, strawberries, banana and more in the beautiful foam top. it’s a very warming beer. Takes a minute before the effect of a sip has stopped. Alcohol kicks in later and keeps you warm inside. De Leckere is turning into one of my favorite Dutch breweries.

Dickinsonbeer (5077) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAR 26, 2009
De Leckere Winterbier. Pours a slight haze- woody amber with a thin yet lasting head. Aroma is fruity esters upfront, raisin, apple, and pear, slight orange zest- caramel malts, toasty, almond and phenolic Belgian character. Fruity, phenolic, esters, light alcohol presence, sweet brown sugar, candi sugar, caramel malts, hints of fruity special B. Ok body and a smooth finish.

Bottled, bought at Mitra. Dark brown color, short head. Aroma of roasted malt, some chocolat and coffee. Taste is good malty, slight sweet, some licorice. Good brew for the winter season, and exceptionally well made for De Leckere!

on tap, pours dark cherry/brown with a small white head. Aromas are of oak, alcohol and cinnamon. The taste is strong, some malt character mixed with licorice and cinnamon. The mouth ilight to medium with moderate carbonation and a creamy feel in the finish. Pretty good strong ale.

JorisPPattyn (7773) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - DEC 7, 2008
UPDATED: DEC 9, 2008 Huge yellow-brown, dense head over beautiful deep mahogany coloured beer. Sweetish nose, very liqueurish. Spices and cypress blend to a very Ardennes-like brew. Spicy, leafy, root spices flavours. Caramel, burnt & roasted notes, almonds, faint bitterish lining. Good balance. Quite well-bodied, slick, nearly viscous. Not very distinctive finish or aftertaste. Not bad at all. Thank God it is Blauwe, and not Botte Bijl…
