COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Het éénmalige brouwsel heeft een frisse smaak en is door de fijne pareling goed doordrinkbaar. De Hivernum bevat 8 procent alcohol, is licht moutig, beetje kruidig, bevat een lichte touch alcoholsmaak en wordt verder gekenmerkt door zijn rondheid. De afdronk is fris, lang en droogbitter.

Benzai (8800) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - DEC 9, 2012
Draught at Becoloth. Clear golden color with a dense lightly creamy white head that leaves good lacing. Don’t get much aroma, probably too cold. Taste malts, light to moderately spices and herbs, spicy bitterness in the finish. Medium to full body, medium carbonation. Better than expected.

Tap sample at In de Wildeman. Clear golden colour, white head. Aroma of lots of iron, cloying spice and thick sweet malts. Flavour is sweet, metallic, spicy, light bitter finish. Typical Delirium stuff, which means not for me.

On tap in the Wildeman. Poured a hazy golden with a healthy white head. Aroma of spices. Medium to full body, flavour of spiced malt a bit of the Tremens family to this. Decent.

Ober (2811) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - DEC 16, 2012
A clear yellow colored beer, with a thick white head. The aroma of sweet malts with fruits, a little hop. The taste is sweet and sharp biter, a little alcohol. The aftertaste is sweet with some bitter hop.

MrHangover (2664) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - DEC 19, 2012
Draft @ de paas. Pours a clear golden beer with a white head. Fruity yeasty esters in the aroma and malts. Very sweet flavor of alcohol and fruitiness. Nice winter ale.

Seemed like a light version of the Tremens to me, which is not very good. I like the big brother better.

I can taste that this is well made but it just does not do it for me. There is something familiar, some fruit presarvative that i just cannot place. Nice, but I wont have a refill. On tap at In De Wildeman.
