COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
One of our flagship beers, slightly different in flavour every year! A splendid, maroon-coloured beer with fine aromas of spiced fruit, orange peel and well-roasted malt to delight the nose. The flavour is a spicy balance of caramel, citrus and slightly bitter hops to restore that warm feeling during the dark days of winter. If stored in a cool, dark place, IJndejaars will keep for years.

Note: Until 2005 called IJndejaars, from 2006 until 2008 called Turbock and in 2009 they started using the old name IJndejaars again.

mariuspoenari (3202) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JAN 7, 2016
33cl from the liquor store - 2015 version. Ruby-brown pour with a tan head that gives way to a thin lacing. Smells like caramel, dark fruit, cherries, coriander. Tastes bitter - a kind of English ale bitter - but is nicely balanced by the caramel, cherry and spices. Medium to full bodied, smooth mouthfeel.

Patdelichte (202) - - JAN 5, 2016
5-01-2016, Delft drankgigant Degelijk amber bier. Amberkleur met lichte schuimkraag die snel verdwijnt. Smaakt lichtzoet en ik vind hem smaken naar Kwak maar dan de mindere versie op elk aspect. Drinkt daardoor wel makkelijk weg ondanks 9 %. Heel goed te drinken maar niet bijzonder.

UPDATED: AUG 21, 2016 A litter sour aroma when open the bottle and then covered by the malty aroma. Medium head, hazy amber to brown. Taste is sweet and pleasant pear/peach flavor. Quite a good beer for the end of this year!
