Zoet biertje zeker niet bitter erg lekker, een beetje grand prestige achtig, zeker voor herhaling vatbaar

2012 edition. Murky amber coloured beer with direct disappearing head. Aroma of canned fruit and sugar candy. Taste of vanilla, marmalade, sugary and boozy. Only downside was the price. 77ships (9828) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JAN 18, 2016
Thank you for sharing people! 2013 Vintage. Sampled 330 ml. bottle @ “Gouda Winterbier Festival 2016”. Hazy amber with an off-white head. Nose is warming, very sticky sweet candy, orange peel, sugar, light cloves, touch vanilla. Taste is weird cacao, sugar, cloves, warming orange peel, raisin, dates, cloying, grain, spices cake. Low carbonation, sugar & orange peel body. Minor odd flourishes but quite nice if you are into strong, sugary, low carb. vintage brews like this (I am).
