Papsoe (25089) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - OCT 11, 2008
(Bottle 30 cl) Courtesy of fonefan. Comes as "De Leckere Winterbier. Pours a slightly hazy amber golden with a small off-white head. Delicious aroma of burned caramel. Quite full-bodied with burned caramel, pumpernickel and roasted malt. Subdued bitterness but heavy on alcohol. More British/Scottish than Belgian really. 041008

Bottle, 10%. Good vinous malt aroma, hint of bread. Hazy amber colour. Small frothy white head. Good malty flavour, slightly creamy. Sweet and with a hint of warming alcohol. Good, but a bit weak for ABV.

ha1ag (701) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - JUN 9, 2008
Bottled in Take One in Mestreech. Dark hazy amber color, beige head with nice lacing, Nose is yeasty and arome is like orangepeel. Flavour is sweet with orange, spicy and low bitterness. A bit too thin for a winterbeer of my taste. Not bad.

Thanks bierkoning, Edo! Hazy orange nut-brown color, small off-white head. Glue-like grainy aroma. Sweetish, toffeish, diacetylic flavor. Liquerish palate. Feels almost infected. It doesn’t feel 10 % either.

oh6gdx (20247) - Vasa, FINLAND - MAR 22, 2008
Bottled. Hazy orangeish nutbrown colour, not much head. Aroma is very glueish alcohol, yeast, raisins and fruits. Flavour is very sweet fruits, malts and quite glueish. The alcohol is very disturbing in this one.

pivnizub (8748) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - MAR 8, 2008
Bottle: Hazy, orangey colored, "dirty" small foamy layer; moderate grainy-toasted-malty nose with shy orangey traces; moderate sweet, a bit tart flavour, medium bodied; sweet-fruity, a bit tart, too, finish. All in all a quite weak example for a 10% ABV beer.........

Ober (2807) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - JAN 24, 2008
UPDATED: MAY 18, 2009 A dark amber colored beer. A nice smell, light caramel, maybe raisens. A creamy head, not large. The taste is toffee like and you als taste the alcohol Different from most of the winterbeers.
