Benzai (8140) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - OCT 1, 2013
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 !

Douberd (2221) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - SEP 30, 2013
On tap at Borefts ’13. Deep dark red/brown colour on the body with a thin beige head. Low retention. Aroma is fruity, with caramel, cherries, sweet and sour at the same time. Very nice taste, sweet cherries, alcohol offering its warmt. Medium thin body,low carbonation, sticky on the palate. Overall very nice.

erickok (3499) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - SEP 29, 2013
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)
