UPDATED: OCT 24, 2009 18-8-2009:Dark amber coloured, creamy darkwhite head, sweet aroma. Tastes bitter, alcohol is dominating, not a good thirstquencher. In palate hints of rasins and coriander (?). Moderate, a bit too strong, not too good balanced. 14-10-2009: Another bottle. This time itís more my style. Nicely bitter, long finish. I taste figs, herbs, a bit of cacao. This is nice

the smell of the beer promises more than what you eventually get. I smell chocolate, strawberries, banana and more in the beautiful foam top. itís 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.

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.
