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.

argo0 (11556) - Washington DC, USA - FEB 8, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 11, 2005 (12/11/05, 12oz bottle) Small beige head atop a dark red-brown body. Aroma is mild, moderately sweet, candi sugar, belgian yeast. Taste is similarly devoid of substantive elements, with only a vague vegetal quality added to the limited qualities found in the aroma. Watery light-medium body, alcohol is essentially invisible. Hard to believe that my last rating could be considered generous. (3/3/3/2/7)

(2/8/04) Clear brown body with minimal off-white head. Aroma is candy sugar sweet, malty, Belgian yeast. Taste is sweet, candy sugar, some spicy hop. Medium body, some sticky sweetness. (4/3/5/3/10)

jcwattsrugger (11086) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - JAN 14, 2006
12oz bottle-pours a tan head with dark brown color. Aroma is sweet, malt, dark cherry. Taste is malt, oak barrel taste, sweet, mild carbonation. Medium bodied. Nothing that stands out as bad, just lacking.

Lubiere (10094) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 24, 2003
Nice brown in colour, with a nice head, fruity and chocolaty aroma. Raisin, moka taste. Very little alcohol warmth though,

hopscotch (9171) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - FEB 11, 2006
Bottle... Hazy, mahogany ale with a small, creamy, khaki head. Good retention. Mild aromas of caramel, dark fruit and chocolate. Perfectly balanced flavor. Lightly tart. Fizzy and thin. Not even close to any true Belgian strong ale I’ve ever tasted. Leans toward Flanders, but ends up in Golden, CO... the Coors Light of Belgian strong ales, I suppose. Much like Coors light, there’s not enough going on to be offensive. The relatively high ABV is extremely well-hidden... maybe too well-hidden.

hopdog (8958) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 17, 2004
On tap at the Porterhouse Brewery. Poured a dark reddish brown color with an averaged sized off white head. Aromas and tastes of sweet malts, molasses, and hops. Some spices. Lightly sweet with a light hoppy finish.

Sammy (8680) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 19, 2007
A dark coloured ale, with a sour yeasty aroma, and a sour yeasty taste, something like a Belgian shwartzbier. Medium mouthfeel. Fizzy carbonation, like Dr. Pepper. Not bad, drinkable. a fair Belgian ale.
