COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
As the days grow shorter and frost becomes snow, our BELGIAN fREEZE WINTER ALE is the perfect remedy to loosen the spirits. This deep amber tonic is brewed with lots of roasted caramel malt for body and warmth to bring in the holidays and see you through the spring.

SpringsLicker (3170) - Tennessee, USA - JAN 29, 2004
This deep garnet colored beer pours out and hardly raises a head. What there is laces the glass and then quickly disappears. The aroma is citrusy with bready notes. The flavor is lightly sweet, and the finish is papery dry, but not long lasting. Not complex or fruity enough to be a top notch Belgian, sort of comes off as a fruity Bock. Drinkable but largely unremarkable.

tbookman (618) - Ephrata, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 27, 2004
Medium brown with a thick light brown head. Sweet malt body with a bit of Belgain sourness and hints of raisins and other fruit. Pleasant bitterness at the end. Warming and well-done!

guzzler67 (1526) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - JAN 22, 2004
Yeasty aroma of dough. Deep copper appearance with a small head. Sweet, malty flavor that masks the alcohol content very well. Finishes with a hint of spice.

bu11zeye (11971) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - JAN 22, 2004
(Draught) Pours a dark amber color with a medium-sized beige head. Aroma was of malt and raisins. Flavor of caramel, fruit, and roasted malt.

IPFreely (1470) - Sanborn, New York, USA - JAN 21, 2004
Dark red amber, beige head. Aroma of dark fruit, bit of caramel and some malt. Similar flavor profile, raisiny. Something just seemed a bit off. Medium body, a touch of alcohol warming. Not too bad.

frylock (1135) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JAN 20, 2004
Dark redish brown with a tan head. Aroma of toasted malts and rasins. Flavors of dark fruits, toasted malts and a touch of caramel. A little thin, for the style. Could be better.

freekyp (1537) - Thomasville, North Carolina, USA - JAN 16, 2004
UPDATED: NOV 11, 2005 Dark reddish brown with thick, off-white head with decent retention. Strong raisiny/pruny notes carry a tany quality in odor. A hint of grape juice as well. Mouthfeel is thick and oily. Sweet throughout with lingering fruity finish this winter brew is easy drinking and never weighs heavily on the tongue. 2005’s batch is superior to last year’s.

egajdzis (5401) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 10, 2004
Poured a maroon color with a very small head. Light fruit and some toffee in the aroma. Dark fruit, yeast, and malt taste.

Dorwart (2389) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - JAN 7, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 2, 2012 Thin head which dissipates quickly. Low carbonation. Nice deep red/amber in color. Dry, dusty aroma with a decent amount of malt, a hint of smoke and spices. Flavor is quite good with roasted grains, yeast and a hint of smoke again. Creamy in the mouth. Finish is smooth with a lasting faint coffee aftertaste. Quite the good beer. Not your typical spicy winter brew that tastes like a pine tree.

Braudog (5894) - Traveling the USA, Missouri, USA - JAN 1, 2004
Dark reddish brown with a standing toffee head and a coffee aroma. Nice spiciness and a wintery flavor.
