Geiserich (4519) - Linz, AUSTRIA - SEP 5, 2013
Bottle: Hazy dark amber color, foamy brownish head. Aroma with notes of fruits, malt and toffee. Flavor is fresh, caramelic, malty, candy but not very sweet. Light fruitywith berry notes. Bit roasty, light bitter finish with herbal notes. fkoolen (1213) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - JUL 2, 2013
Pours a thin off-white head, nice amber-red-brown hazy colour and average carbonation. Not too interesting nose. Taste has abbey double-like herbs, malts and a hint of licorice that meet with abbey triple-like sweet-sour-bitterness and relatively big alcohol flavour. Weird beer. olio (10269) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 20, 2013

A bit worty aroma with ripe fruits, malt and gingerbread dough. Flavour is rather malty with sugar, syrupy notes, some dark fruits and hints of spices. Finishes with mild metallic notes. Also some elements from dunkler doppelbocks. Interesting and good.
goed donker ale met sterk gekarameliseerd geur en lichte bouwen, licht en drinkbare voor winter

Cerveza de color marrón, con una espuma cremosa que desaparece. Sabor acaramelado, toffee, afrutado y notas chocolateadas, además de especias. Olor afrutado. Una cerveza aparentemente sencilla con un sabor muy complejo sobretodo teniendo en cuenta que tiene sólo 6°C. n0mel (250) - FINLAND - JAN 20, 2013
09.01.13. Bottle. A bit fluffy, off-white foam. Clear, reddish-brown beer. Aroma sweetish, hint of berries. Taste is a bit sour, dryish, cardboard. Quite smooth mouthfeel. Dryish bitter aftertaste. Not too shabby, but nothing special. Vaiz (4460) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JAN 17, 2013
Bottle at home. Hazy brown pour, thick foamy off-white head. Aroma is spicy, sugary, fruity, bready, caramel and with some toffee. Flavor is very sweet and slightly spicy, clean and thick bodied. Although on the sweet side, still very well drinkable. Nice brew. Countbeer (6592) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - NOV 26, 2012
Medium sized creamy tan head, which is vast on top and right airy underneath. Changes with regular speed into a sticky lacing on top of a hazy brown amber colored beer.
Smell toasted barleys, creamy sugary notes like brown sugars ans sugar powder, porridge, hint of darker fruits, creamy malts.
Taste barley malts, toast, darker fruits, bitters, yeast, some hops, grains and a sprinkle of some light sweetness like brown sugars and caramel.
Aftertaste floral, hops, hay, grass, toast, bitters, barleys and herbs.
Medium carbo, blown and spicy mouthfeel, medium body and a light creamy bit thin texture.
Easy drinkable, no trace of alcohol. Nice! stevoj (5036) - Boise, Idaho, USA - OCT 10, 2012
I know the taste adn smell and can’t pin it down...nuts, toffee, caramel, apricots, figs, raisins, swwet and soothing. Lots of sediment make this a cloudy orange copper color with sticky thick foam.This is truly delicious. Note: my bottle is not labeled as "Winterbier" , just "Bruin"
