COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Top fermented beer which undergoes a secondary fermentation in bottle. It is intense gold, almost orange in color, with aromas of fruit in syrup (pineapple, peach and apricot), candy sugar, bread crust and a note of chives from the Belgian hops of Poperinge. Warm and sweet on the palate with a firm fizzy finish. Strong and structured, sweet and inviting. A tribute to a friend who went missing, who we may meet again one day, just like the sun that is hiding behind the hill.

Winterlude is also named after a Bob Dylan song, a perfect fit since it is a winter warmer. The idea of winter as an interlude representing both the pause before awakening and the oblivion before new life.
This beer is inspired by some varieties of the Belgian Tripels. The hops come from the Poperinge region, a variety I have always been fascinated by. I connected with one of the region’s local farmer and had him set a preferred variety aside from his most recent harvest.
Because it combines incredibly well with food, Winterlude has always made us proud with our catering industry clients.

danielyabu (1637) - União da Vitória, BRAZIL - DEC 26, 2016
UPDATED: JAN 6, 2017 Large rocky creamy offwhite head. Good lacing. Mostly diminishing. Hazy thick ochre body. Aroma: light malty, citrus orange, soap, alcohol, mango. Initial flavor: moderate sweet light bitter. Final flavor: moderate sweet bitter; long duration. Palate: medium body, watery/oily texture, lively carbonation and moderate alcoholic finish. : leve aroma de banana. Leve presence maltada no aroma lembra mel. Dulçor frutado e maltado lembrando também mel. Sente-se baixa presença de fenóis, de caráter apimentado (BJCP). Médio aquecimento alcoólico, mas esconde bem o sabor do mesmo. Esters are reminiscent of citrus fruit such as orange, moderate. moderate spicy hop character is usually found. O dulçor lembra um pouco frutas tropicais (principalmente manga) também, trazendo um pouco de exoticidade ao estilo nesta interpretação italiana de uma tripel. Deliciosa cerveja. 160 s

Biroholik (1345) - Sosnowiec, Poland, POLAND - OCT 24, 2016
Kolor: Żółty, mętny.
Piana: Biała, drobnooczkowa, dość trwała. Po kilku minutach opada do krążka. Lacing na szkle średniej maści. Mogłoby być lepiej, ale źle też nie jest.
Zapach: Aromat jest bardzo przeciętny. Mocno trzeba się naszukać, żeby w ogóle tutaj coś odnaleźć. Trochę estrów owocowych - głównie brzoskwinie i skórka pomarańczy. Dużo więcej jest natomiast pieprzu i piakantnych przypraw w tle. W zasadzie to chyba tyle. Ubogo.
Smak: W smaku dużo, dużo lepiej. Dominują żółte owoce. Jest tego mnóstwo: pomarańcze, morele, brzoskwinie, a także lekki ananas. Po przeciwległej stronie barykady stoją przyprawowe fenole: pieprz i lekki goździk. Jast też silna strona belgijskich drożdży i odrobina zbożowości. Całkiem fajna faktura. Średnia goryczka, przyprawowo-owocowy finisz. Całkiem przyzwoity Tripel, trochę przejrzały i mało intensywny, ale nadal smaczny.
Wysycenie: Średnie.
Podsumowanie:
"Winterlude" - nazwa Browar Centralny Piwa Rzemieślnicze wywodzi się od utworu Boba Dylana z 1970 roku. Całkiem smaczny Imperial Tripel. Może mało intensywny, szczególnie zapachowo, ale pomimo tego dobrze wpsowuje się w styl. Fajne połączenie owocowej strony piwa, estry owocowe (pomarańcze, mandarynki, morele i brzoskwinie) z przyprawowymi fenolami (lekki goździk i czarny pieprz). Jest też mocno zaznaczony charakter belgijskich drożdży. Niezłe piwo, ale trochę mało złożone.

mgajdaczewa (2098) - Katowice, POLAND - OCT 14, 2016
W aromacie taki bardziej owocowo zorientowany tripel, pomarańcza, brzoskwinia, słodowość, sprawia wrażenie dość pełnego. I taki jest w smaku, owocowy, słodowy i pełny, niska przyprawowość i goryczka, ale uniknięto mdłej słodyczy, świetnie ukryty alkohol, przez to pijalne. Trochę za mało skomplikowane, ale bardzo smaczne. Imperial tripel, rzekłbym.

artemb (904) - Chisinau, MOLDOVA - OCT 6, 2016
Clear golden with yeast particles. Aroma: spices, grape, flower. Light sweet, light to moderate-bitterness. Very light body. Flavour: spices, flowers, white wine. Good.
