Kerkom Bink Winter King
Kerkom • Belgium
Winterkoninkske is brewed with juniper berries and a touch of lavender, but neither overwhelms the flavor of this splendid winter offering from Kerkom, a classic Belgian farmhouse brewery.
In fact, you may not even know they’re there, and you certainly won’t find this beer overspiced. You will find it a festive winter warmer, just sweet enough to excite the taste buds but not so cloying that it sticks to the roof of your mouth like so many entry-level Belgians.
The Kerkom Brewery is a family operation built into a rambling farmhouse surrounded by Belgium’s best cherry orchards. In the summer, beer lovers from all over the country come to drink fresh beer in the courtyard in front of the brewery.
