Borresteijn (4541) - Amsterdam, - NOV 18, 2012
33cl Bottle from De Bierkoning. Almost clear dark ruby amber colour, dense orange/yellow-ish head. Aroma of bitter oranges, clementines, some citrus, leafy hops, sweet malts. Flavour is quite sweet, malty, sugar, bitter oranges, firm but smooth hoppy bitterness, a bit of toasted malts, firm bittter finish. Full-bodied, smooth, a tad too sweet imo. Not my favourite style of beer, but this is quite good. Cheers Thomas, always enjoyed having a beer and a chat during your shifts, good luck on the study!

Plovmand (6301) - Helsinge, DENMARK - AUG 6, 2013
Bottle shipped to my place from Borresteijn. Thanks Rob! It pours bit hazy ruby amber with a creamy beige head. The aroma is loads of toasted malty caramel, bread, fruit, apricot and oranges. The flavor is sweet malty and bread like with sweet marmalade, oranges, berries and some warming alcohol. Lovely and well made US style barley wine.

Leighton (10422) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 22, 2013
Tap at Beer Temple - Amsterdam. Pours clear, rich ruby with a very light, white foam head. Nose is heavy with rich caramel and overripe fruits. Hugely sweet flavor with sticky sugars, caramel, orange, light pine, dates, golden raisins. Full bodied, chewy, with soft carbonation. Moderate warmth to finish with tons of chewy, ripe fruits and big, sticky sugars. Very sweet but also very rich and flavorful.

Bottle from Arendsnest, Amsterdam (thx Peter). Pours clear orange-yellow, little white head. Rhubarb nose, yeasty and alcohol. Fruity taste (stone fruits, blood orange), malts, yeast, alcohol all well balanced with a hoppy finish. Quite nice.
