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.

Nice beer, but too thin body for me. Much more a fan of the haspengouwse cuvee.

UPDATED: JAN 13, 2014 molto molto scura con lievi riflessi di rame,schiuma morbida e persistente color nocciola..aroma alcolico,fruttato,non molto forte ma delicato..carbonazione medio/bassa,gusto deciso,classico di questo stile,dolce,frutta scura,alcool, con un bellissimo finale misto dolce/luppolato, retrogusto che la rende pericolosamente beverina! speciale davvero...regalo di margherita :) 13/01/2014 molto probabilmente la birra ha cambiato ricetta..più scura,schiuma marrone..aroma molto maltato ma anche ricco di liquirizia..gusto altrettanto forte di liquirizia,dove si aggiunge il caffè,lievissimi sentori futtati e un amaro a tratti percepibile alla fine..molto molto corposa e densa..buona ma non la prima birra che ho votato..questa è sul 3.6

Donker aroma, as, uitgeblazen kaars en kruid. Smaak is kruidig, warm, wat rokerig zoet, met een lange beetje bittere afdronk. Diep donkere kleur. Van de tap@ de Klep.
