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)

thebeertourist (4901) - 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.

bleeng (1543) - 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.
