4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
27th September 2013
Borefts Beer Festival 5. Day 1. Hazy amber - brown beer, no real head. Palate is smooth with superfine carbonation. Lovely sweet malt with sweet toffee. Nice Port Wine berry fruits and general vibe. These two aspects are well integrated. Finishes smooth. A wonderful sweet, smooth and tasty barleywine and for me beer of the festival. Not the first time for a Bommen & Granaten variant!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Slightly hazy brown colour, no head. Aroma of cherry, caramel, malts, brown sugar, wood, syrup, light sour hint. Sweet flavour, syrup, brown sugar, red fruit, wood, red wine, hint of brett. Finish red wine, caramel, cherry and brett. No brett sourness though, only a bit of funk. Bit strange in composition, but enjoyable.
(Draught @ BBF V, Bodegraven. My 2222nd rating)

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught @ Borefts 2013. Amber color. Vinous aroma, malty. Malty sweet almost sugary flavor with candied fruit and hints of bourbon and vanilla. The brett is hard to notice. Some onion and cabbage flavors. But this does suit the beer, that needs some added complexity. Pleasant.
