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.

Caramel taste, a steady kind of, unoffensive bitterness. A little bit sweet, but not too much, yet there was nothing truly special about this one to me, either. It was okay!

Bijl (364) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 31, 2016
Amberkleurig, helder, crèmekleurige schuimkraag. Aroma: Vol moutig, licht geroosterd, kruidig en peperig en een sinaasappelschil prikkel. Smaak: Zoet fruitig.....donker fruit, geroosterde zoete volle mouten, karamel, lekker kruidig en iets peperig. De bitter is floraal en netelig en de Alcohol geeft wat warmte maar is toch op de achtergrond. Volle body, zacht mondgevoel met matig koolzuur ......romig, bitterzoete afdronk. Goed spul..... op naar 2017!

Sircatis (183) - FRANCE - DEC 15, 2016
Découverte dans la Saveur Box. Biere ambrée avec des reflets rouge. Sucrée et épicée au nez. En bouche elle est sucrée et douce avec un petit goût épicé. On ne ressent absolument pas les 9° d’alcool. Belle découverte.
