@Borefts 2013
donker bruin/rood nagenoeg geen kraag, of het moeten de kleine pareltjes aan de rand wezen
aroma: zoet, mout, vanille, licht zuurtje
smaken: redelijk zoet, zachte barley wine, licht zuurtje aanwezig, heb tijdens #Borefts diverse (licht)zurige bieren gehad, maar bij dit vind ik het zuurtje erin perfect in balans, niet overdreven. verder zacht romig, vanille, bourbon, bruine suiker/honing zoet, lekker !

Tap at BBF13 - one of my favourites of the festival - hands down. Pours slightly hazy amber with no head (just some bubbles), faint carbonation (in palate as well) and a rich malt and fruit jam nose. Full full body but the slight tartness is really agreeable! Taste is that typical B&M goodness and added with some sweet wine alike flavours (oaky, sweet grape notes, full peachy notes...). Love it!

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 !

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!

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)

Draft at BBF’13
Dark brown, no head. Sourness from the Brett combines well with the sweet bourbon Barley Wine. Vinous notes. Smooth, silky mouthfeel.

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.

On tap at Borefts 2013. Reddish brown with a small pale head. Aroma is plum, raisins, dates, sweet bbq sauce, citrus. Oily mouthfeel, sweet on the palate with some balancing sourness. Taste is prunes, dates, toffee, baked apple, marmalade.
