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.

$4.39/11.2 oz at Discount. Pours to a lightly hazy dark brown with red hues. Creamy tan head. Heavy lacing. The aroma is gin (juniper berries), cherries, and yeasts. The flavor is baked pears, cinnamon, yeast, light black licorice, sweet rolls, and is lightly tart. The palate is a touch dusty and/or finely powdered sugar. Lightly dry and carbonated.

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!

beervana (781) - Libertyville, Illinois, USA - DEC 22, 2005
Sampled at a 2005 Christmas and Winter beer tasting at Delilah’s, Chicago, IL. 2003 vintage. Hazy amber hued ale having a small diminishing head. No discernable carbonation. Sweet malt aroma. Medium bodied that starts with spicy, light sweet malt, and toffee flavors. Finishes dry with sour aftertaste. This is a good drinkable beer.

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.

YogiBeera (2554) - New Jersey, USA - NOV 21, 2005
That’s a winterbeer that deserves the name. Nice dark brown color with a small light brown head on top. The head leaves beautiful laces on the glass. Light malt and chocolate nose - as it warms up a quite intense bandaid nose comes through. Sour milk, tar, prunes taste with a spicey finish. Fizzy carbonation. Nice.

Beige creamy weak head. Dark brown color. Aroma is weak, malty, fruity with raisins and caramel notes. Flavor is sweet, fruity with caramel, banana and light spicy tones, ending in a moderately sweet finish. Medium bodied.

jimmack (1223) - Nutley, New Jersey, USA - OCT 4, 2005
33cl. bottle. Dark brown color with a nice thick tan head. Sweet malty aroma with lots of raisins and molasses. Flavor was sweet, but not nearly as sweet as I thought it would be, probably due to the aggressive carbonation. Yeasty, like fresh baked bread, along with dark dried fruits and molasses. A touch of hop bitterness on the finish.
