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)

bleeng (1510) - Houston nowhere near Beersel, Texas, USA - JAN 4, 2008
50cl swing-top bottle thanks to der Doppelbock (Sebastian). Cloudy, unfiltered, dark yellow pour. Small white head. Nose of yeast, malt, a bit citrusy. Taste: nice malt profile, musty, very yeasty but not in a bad way. Bitter, lip-licking on the back-end-alcohol is faintly noticeable. Mouth is foamy, full, and flavorful going down. A nice beer-wish I some more of these for the hot Houston summer.

Bottled: Quite yeasty (baker’s yeast) aroma with hop and some citrus notes. Cloudy, golden color, with a huge, medium lacing head. Quite light bodied, grain, yeast and bitter hop flavor. Dry, bitter hopped finish.

On tap at Bruxellensis. Cloudy pale gold colour with lasting white head. Pretty good, nice character. Nice light lager, being unfiltered gives it character.

MoritzF (8444) - Bochum, GERMANY - JAN 2, 2007
(swing top bottle) Cloudy, pale golden colour with a short and creamy, slightly off-white layer. Yeasty, slightly sweet grainy, also a bit wheaty aroma with delicate citrousy hops and light notes of barnyard. Moderately sweet, light bitter flavour, light to medium bodied with a smooth carbonation. Yeasty, malty taste, again slightly wheaty with a faint fruity note; dryish malty and yeasty bitter finish. Well-quaffable top-fermented brew.
This brew reminds me of descriptions of Keutebier, a top-fermented style, originated from the Lower Rhine area, that was very popular between the 15th and 19th century. It was one of the earliest beers brewed with hops (instead of herbs, Grutbier for example) and contained besides barley- also amounts of wheat- and spelt-malt. Keutebier can be seen as a predecessor of Kölner Wiess and Kölsch.

pivnizub (8763) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - JAN 1, 2007
Swing-top bottle (diky, MoritzF): Hazy, golden coloured, lacing fluffy white head; wheat, yeast, citrousy hops in the aroma; soft MF, light bodied, moderate sweet-bitter flavour; sweetish-grainy finish with a fruity, citrousy touch. A well crafted beer of an unknown style.......
