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!
