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.

Dark color; thin head. Dry malt, very strong caramel, quite high bitterness; gets easily sweeter when warmer. Not bad.

Koelschtrinker (19514) - Kln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 4, 2011
Brotig-malziger Antrunk, ein ser Unterton wird zunehmend stumpfer. Auf der Strecke bleibt bei der trockenen Malzigkeit die Wrze, zudem wirkt das Bier in Teilen zu s. DIe Fruchtigkeit gefllt zwar, ist aber meiist zu schwach und im Nachgeschmack ganze verschwunden. Malziger, weiter trockener Abgang. Cremig, trocken. Test vom 8.12.2007, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 10,9,8,8,11,9 - 8,90

harrisoni (18050) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAR 29, 2010
Bottle in a hotel room in Bruges. Black, thin beige head. Choccy nose, bit of boozyness on aroma. Liquorice, I really dont like liquorice. Boozy too. Pretty much not in my palate. All wrong for me, but nothing wrong with it.

TBone (17082) - Pori, FINLAND - DEC 1, 2004
Dark red ruby, quickly vanishing expresso head. Crisp - fruits, berries and malts in the nose, not very strong aroma. Plums, raisins and a bit of brown sugar in the sweetish palate. Very thin and watery. Does not show much ABV or anything else.

yngwie (16889) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 9, 2012
Bottle. A brown, clear beer topped by a finger-thick, dense, beige head. The aroma has some solvent hints, with crocant, roasted malts and dark dried fruits. Dried fruits, plums and some roasted malts in the flavor, slightly bitter and alcoholic in the finish. Smooth on the palate, full-bodied. A quite nice beer, but far from world class. 110916
