Beside the Bloesem Bink, you can also enjoy a second seasonal beer, the Winterkoninkske. This beer is, just like the others, unfiltered, not pasteurized, with secundary fermentation in the bottle. The Winterkoninkske is the ideal beer to make a cold and chilly winter evening pleasant. The ingredients are: seven types of malt (among which rolled oats), two belgian types of hop, brewing liqour and yeast. Our winter beer is a dark and heartwarming beer with a pure, sugary flavour and a long, bitter aftertaste. The alcohol content of this heavy beer is 8,3 % vol.alc.

Tasted 11/02/07. 330ml bottle. Unfilterd and rather opaque. Brown with a touch ruby red highlight. Beige head. Toffee aromas. Chocolate and port. Cocoa peppery and red berries aromas. Full bodied and sugary fruity sweet. Bready cinnamon malts. Moderate cocoa and coffee acidity. Vanilla candy sweetness. Cloying and oily. Slick with fruity undertones. Touch ginny but over shot by the big malts. Great warmer but slightly dulled. Nay, blended. Mild red fruit. Graham cracker malts. Medium but big. Oaky woody and toasty. Good.
