"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)

Bottle from Cracked Kettle, Amsterdam.Pour unclear golden with a big frothy white heaf. Grassy hops aroma. Taste is bitter with a lively mouthfeel.Ends more fresh malty, indeed more sweet than the initial taste suggest. Strange and good beer

bobinlondon (1260) - Harrow, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 30, 2009
Gravity at Zeitgeist Bier Mania Oktoberfest 08. Gold/yellow with a white head. Broadly in the Kolch style but not as clean tasting as the genuine articles from Cologne area. Nice pure lager malt base with spicey hops in the finish. A real treat in London.

daniele (6555) - ITALY - MAY 3, 2009
chiara velata buona schiuma piuttosto persistente il nso non è ampio ma si avverte una leggera nota mielosa un po di frumento in bocca corpo medio non molta la nota maltate leggere fruschezza acidula forse data dal frumento pinale piacevolmente amaro piuttosto frizzante

thebeertourist (5102) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 30, 2008
From bottle at In de Wildeman. Pours cloudy deep golden with a big lacing head. Intense hoppy aroma, of hay mostly. Very bitter, like drinking grass; German Landbier gone extreme? Full-bodied, well-carbonated. dares to be different.

Bright yellow gold with a thin white head. Wheat tobacco and lemon, very weisse-like. Really fresh and tasty. Full on lemon in the finish.

downender (6954) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 17, 2008
From the barrel at Zeitgeist @ The Jolly Gardeners, Lambeth 16/5/08. Murky pale gold in colour with a decent, frothy white head. Aroma of herbs, sour apples and grassy hops. Flavour was slightly bitter, with barnyard yeast, wheat and a bitter, slightly acidic finish. A bit hard to categorise, but drinkable.
