COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

yngwie (17284) - 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

Scopey (16277) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 28, 2016
Bottle at level 42, thanks to Wingman. It pours dark ruby - brown with a thick tan head. The aroma is very spicy, ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, treacle, toast and earthy roast. The taste is sweet, sticky, treacle, festive spice, candi sugar, sugared plum, Dandelion & Burdock, alcohol, ginger and dried fruits with a dry, spiced finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. A pretty ok spiced Belgian strong. Couldn’t drink too much of it though.

bhensonb (15991) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 14, 2007
Dark malt aroma; not much, if any, fruit or juniper. Dark brown color with a deep ruby that comes out under halogen. A beige/tan head that was reluctant to stay. A little berry fruit as the glass approaches the nose. Ok. The flavor starts with some pretty decent berry fruit - not tracing that to the juniper, which is leaving an evergreen note. The body is near full, and the carbonation is creamy. The malt is heavy caramel. The hop is not present? The juniper is low key, but ever present. This is an especially pleasant ale. The finish is sugary, but when that washes away, there is mild, persistent bitter. A really well done ale.
