Sometimes things go wrong at a brewery. While brewing our Donder & Bliksem a mistake was made and we added a lot of malts that weren’t suppose to go in this brew. This is how our Bohemian Lager turned into a Schwarzbier. As you see, we turn our Difficulties into a Virtue.

dutchbeerpages (1668) - Wilnis, NETHERLANDS - MAR 9, 2012
Rather weak schwarz. I can see why this is a mistake. Watery with weak palate. Then again it is also a De Molen. Some chocolate, raisin, fruit. Still pretty, just not regular De Molen standard. Bottle from De Bierkoning.
