Sampled @ Borefts 2013. A bit unclear reddish color, no head at all. Smell malts, a slight sour touch, some sweetness and a touch of alcohol. Taste malts, sweetness, some alcohol, flowery. Weird, don’t really know what to say about it. Medium body and carbonation, a bit sticky texture.

One of the best barley wines at the Borefts festival except for the Emelisse Buffalo trace wich was my #1 barley wine at Borefts !
Super smooth barley wine, richt, syrupy, not as sweet as the Bommen & Granaten regular wich makes this much better, the Bretts don’t really acompany a sour flavour, but i think they do a very good job on making this a smoother less sweet beer instead of the otherwise too sweet and cloyingly Barley Wines De Molen have, very nice !

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Lighter coloured than expected. Strong aroma of dark fruit, fresher berries, sweet brown malts, grapes and a herbal note. The taste is a tat bit diluted though compared to the normal (and extra hopped) versions. You do get a touch of acidity which is interstingly different. Prefer the original(s) though. This one feels like it doesn’t need 15% alcohol. (On tap at Borefts 2013)
