Here we have Grimbergen Winter from Alken Maes brewery standing at 6.5%.
Well here we have the second to last beer of this years advent calendar and the last live review for this year. As tomorrow I’ll be in london for new years and I’ll be taking the last one with me.
The aroma has a sweetness to it, having trouble placing exactly what, also a little berry like. The taste isnt as complex as I expect from a winter special. It has notes of a caramel, also a slight bitterness and the sweetness of the aroma is really missing in the taste. The texture is quite light for a dark beer, not a lot of carbonation and is not clingy. The aftertaste is very minimal and if anything ever so slighty watery. Really thought that there would be more to this, not a good beer at all really. Its simple but not tasty or balanced.
