COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
"Mit dem Boltens Landbier haben wir ein Bier gebraut, welches natürlich die besten Zutaten der Landwirtschaft nutzt, aber vor allem, welches einen vollen, aromatischen Biergeschmack hat, der nicht nur aus einer überzogenen Hopfung herrührt, sondern aus der besonderen Malzmischung. Der obergärigen Brauart sind wir selbstverständlich treu geblieben, schon alleine wegen der Bekömmlichkeit, aber auch weil die obergärige Hefe wegen der höheren Gärtemperatur mehr Geschmacksstoffe bildet, insbesondere Geschmacksstoffe mit einer leicht fruchtigen Note. Und weil wir natürlich alles an Geschmack erhalten wollen, was da so entsteht, belassen wir das Boltens Landbier - genau wie früher - so wie es ist, nämlich naturtrüb." (Info from the homepage of the brewery)

Baalzevuv (37) - - DEC 5, 2014
Kapsel nie odskoczył. Szkoda. Pieni się obficie. Piana biała, nietrwała, grubo pęcherzykowa. Lacing prawie żaden. Kolor pilsowy, pełny, równomiernie zmętniony. Czuć chmiel, lekką ziołowość, trochę kwasowatości. Po ogrzaniu zaczyna wychodzić zapach, cytując klasyka, ’mokrego kartonu’. Smak jest wyważony, choć dość łagodny. Są nuty siarkowe, jest goryczka. Odczucie w ustach dość pozytywne. Na języku szerokie, goryczka lekko zalegająca.

Erzengel (3550) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - NOV 18, 2014
* Old rating, 50cl swing-top bottle, bets before 06.06.06. Mild-malziges, leicht getreidiges, leicht süßliches Bier. Sehr süffig, aber auch nicht zu tief.

Douberd (2593) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - NOV 3, 2014
(Boltens Landbier) Swing top bottle, 500 ml, served into a glass tankard. ABV 4.9% Golden yellow colour on the body, slightly hazy, with a decent sized white head. Good retention, light lacing on the glass. Refreshing aroma, some grains, fresh grass, touch of lemon. Same on the taste, grains, grass, straw, refreshing lemon notes. The only downside is that is very faint. Medium thin body, low carbonation, almost watery. Good one if you’re thirsty.

tricksta_p (1342) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - OCT 16, 2014
Aroma of malt, grain, bread, grass, hops. Flavour is remarkably bitter and light tart. Really quite fresh and drinkable, not as boring as most Landbier.

Alengrin (2431) - BELGIUM - JUL 30, 2014
Landbier from the well-known Altbier brewery, unusual in being top-fermented, like their Altbiere but unlike typical Landbiere. Thick, rocky, stable, sticky, cream white head, colour deep golden blonde, misty. Aroma of pale malts with vague hints of dried citrus peel and unripe peach, chamomille-like hops. Taste rounded maltiness, relatively full, light yeastiness, subtle sweetness evolving into a medium long, hoppy bitterness, also a chalk-like accent. I am not very familiar with the Landbier style but this is quite an enjoyable brew.

BlackHaddock (4124) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - NOV 15, 2013
Half-litre flip-top bottle: BBD 10 Dec 13, poured twice into an old Bolten Alt glass tankard on 2 Nov 13. Murky golden orange body with a full white head on both pours. The aroma was yeasty, with a slightly apple feel: the taste followed suit with a dry finish. I really wanted to enjoy this, sadly it didn’t match my expectations. Thin body wise and lacking flavour, it was refreshing enough but I wanted something with more depth, character and power. OK, but I was disappointed as I love the brewery and want it to prosper.
