Unfortunately I was three sheets to the wind when I glugged this back, but I do remember being impressed. Lovely malty flavour, good body & balance & a nice slight sour/bitter finish.

Bottle, bought @ Cracked Kettle, Amsterdam.
Pours hazy brown with a giant, frothy, beige head. Aroma is lightly tart, lots of dried fruits, caramel, yeast and raspberries. Light carbonation, fine mouthfeel. Flavour is very sweet, lots of Belgian sugars, yeast, raspberries and alcohol. Just generally far too sweet.

Borresteijn (4859) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JAN 10, 2009
On tap at ’t Arendsnest. Unclear dark brown beer, off-white head. Aroma of roasted malts, yeast and some ash. Flavour is very sweet, too sweet actually, sugary and very malty, some chocolate. A bit thin. Because of the unbalanced sweetness not very good.
