COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Beside the ‘Bloesem Bink’, you can also enjoy a second seasonal beer, the ‘Winterkoninkske’. This beer is, just like the others, unfiltered, not pasteurized, with secundary fermentation in the bottle. The ‘Winterkoninkske’ is the ideal beer to make a cold and chilly winter evening pleasant. The ingredients are: seven types of malt (among which rolled oats), two belgian types of hop, brewing liqour and yeast. Our winter beer is a dark and heartwarming beer with a pure, sugary flavour and a long, bitter aftertaste. The alcohol content of this heavy beer is 8,3 % vol.alc.

luckygirl (1223) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 13, 2006
Had this at BJ’s Winter Ale Fest. The beer poured a muddy, dark amber-brown color with a large, frothy light-brown head. The aroma was warming: moderate malty notes of roasted grain and caramel and light molasses; moderate yeast notes of cellar and sourdough started with complicating aromas of juniper, cheap gin and alcohol. The flavor was moderately sweet and lightly bitter and it inversed during it’s long finish. The body was medium, the texture was creamy and the carbonation was lively.

Very dark shade of brown. Big head. Dusty lager aroma. A bit of dusty liqourice taste and that’s just about it. Drinkable not nothing special.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - DEC 22, 2005
This is a wonderful beer. Pours out in a dark reddish brown colour with a creamy tan head. Sweet and fruity aroma of raisin, cherries, figs, butter and bombastic yeast. Rich and very deep flavour of cherries, port, candied pears, blue grapes, white pepper and sourish gooseberries. Long fruity sweet aftertaste of black cherries, port, yeast and alcohol. Very good!

Pours brown with a small tan ring of bubbles. Smells of juniper and pine needles. Taste is of juniper, cherries, honey, pine and some maple syrup. Oily mouthfeel. Interesting.
