COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
WinterVrund a royal beer from Limburg (southern part of Holland). A mix of top and bottom fermentation. Brewed at the end of the year with a different recipe every year. Best to be enjoyed with friends ("frun" in Limburgs) giving you a warming feeling inside for the cold winter months. Wintervrund is like all our beers unpasteurised and environment friendly brewed. The best temperature to drink Wintervrund is between 10 and 12 °C. NOTE: 2007 is actually released in the winter 2007/2008.

Kristall-König (2207) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - JUL 7, 2011
Geruchlich gleich ein ganzes Spektrum von Aromen: Zimt, Nelke, Orange vielleicht auch noch Rosinen. Im Geschmack gewürzig nach den beschriebenen Zutaten. Ab der Mitte wird das Bier deutlich säuerlich. Dieser Ton steigert sich noch bis zum Abgang. Leichter Hopfen. Ein interessantes Gebräu. Kräftig und würzig. Danke an Kölschtrinker für dieses Testobjekt. Test vom 2.12.2007, Gebinde: Glasflasche

Koelschtrinker (10435) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 14, 2011
Fruchtiger Antrunk, zurückhaltend, deutliches Kräuteraroma. Im Mittelteil deutlich milder, die Kräuternote bleibt erhalten. Dazu herb, ein harmonischer Ton hält bis zum Ende. Insgesamt finde ich es schwierig, die Aromen konkret zu betiteln, woran vor allem der Gewürzteil schuld ist. Sollte man mal gekostet haben. Test vom 7.8.2007, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 9,12,13,12,10,13 - 12,15

Clear brown beer, light tan head. Semi crisp beer. Smooth malt and what must be ginger? Smooth ginger dominates before fading in to a crisp dry finish with a little hop peeping through.

Had this bottled years ago and to be honest can’t remember too much to post a good rating. Just to add this one for my own list. First time I "rate" it this way...

Borresteijn (4620) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JUL 23, 2008

Skinnyviking (6925) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 15, 2008
Bottle. Low and quickly disappearing off-white fluffy head. Hazy orange red body. Artificial smelling berries aroma. Heavily carbonated malt flavor with berries with sour notes. Long strange aftertaste.

[bottle from Antonio] Powdery sugary candy (including banana) aroma with some spicy melanoidiny malt. Clear brownish garnet with wispy off-white top and ring. Sweet toffee flavour with raisin/candy banana and very low bitterness. Nice malty finish and slightly warming. Medium body, moderate carbonation, sweet. Boring but clean.
