3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle shared by Kamiel at the Sad Fish whale sess, pours lighter and hazy red. Top is medium in size without much lacing. Notes are definitely sweet but layered with candy sugar, plum, tobacco, cherry, grape, and booze. More sugary than a typical barleywine, next time more hops!

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Probada en Borefts 2013. La mejor de las cervezas que probé, o al menos la que más me gustó. Para repetir. Si la original Bommen en granaten es una barley wine dulzona, aunque sabrosa y bastante bebible el toque ácido del brett hace a esta Bommen en Giovanni adictiva, compensa perfectamente el dulzor. Entra muy bien aunque es peligrosa, en nariz toque acético, fruta madura y almíbar. Poca presencia de lúpulo, cuerpo oleoso y postgusto largo. Excelente.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from de Molen shop, tasted 12/07/2013. Pours chestnut brown, ruby highlights, nearly flat with a still surface yet some residual bubbles occasionally rising to the surface. Aroma of cherries, berry jam, slight tartness, strong vinous funk and brett, subtle vanilla, wood in the finish. From time to time acetone notes come into the nose which is a bit off putting. Taste is cherry, prunes, other ripe dark fruit notes, red wine, brown sugar and toffee, acetic finish, fruity vanilla and light bourbon lingering in the aftertaste. Syrupy and viscous body. Approaching something like a sour barley wine, not entirely my thing.
