Countbeer (5613) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - OCT 5, 2012
Draught @BBF’12: Big creamy white head changes slowly into a white lacing on top of an almost clear bright yellow colored beer. Smell cooked vegetables, sauerkraut, earth, cookies, urine… Not your average smell for a beer on Borefts, but the more interesting the taste will be. Absolutely better taste than smell: lot of vegetables, some hops, malts, yeast, light flowery and some light nutty caramel notes, light medium bitter. Short yeasty vegetable malt and grass aftertaste. Low carbo, soft mouthfeel, medium body and a creamy texture. Smell I strange and not really good, the taste is a lot better. Not bad att all this beer.

Nocturne (1380) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - OCT 4, 2012
Served from a jug at Borefts 2012. Hazy gold with a nice white head. Promisingly hoppy aroma spoilt by a strange and off-putting smell of sewage. Not sure I’d call it watery but it felt bloated and empty at the core with regards to mouthfeel, if that makes sense. Finishes well though with good fruity character. Bizarre but oddly charming through it all.

Vaiz (4052) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - OCT 4, 2012
Tasted at the 4th BBF @ De Molen. Hazy light yellow pour, aroma of brett, German hops and citrus. Flavor is spicy, creamy, slightly bitter and some funky earth.

Benzai (11360) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - OCT 4, 2012
Draught @ Borefts 12. Hazy pale yellow color, small white head. Omg I so dislike this. Aroma and taste are like dishwasher-water or an unclean toilet. Yuk! Watery texture, unfresh, just really bad.

jackl (6112) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 3, 2012
Draft @ Borefts 2012. The pour’s light gold with a eggy white head. The nose is honey, soft white bread, bakery. The taste is much the same. Softly sweet and approachable. Just a hint of herbal hop on the finish. Crisp, smooth. Overall, this was a welcomed change of pace during a festival dominated by high gravity monsters!

mike_77 (4326) - Breda, NETHERLANDS - OCT 2, 2012
Clear blond colour. Aroma of barnyard and fresh malt. Very smooth and silky. Lots of malt and yeast flavour with a bite of dry hop in the finish.

MaartenRF10 (1776) - Wageningen, NETHERLANDS - OCT 2, 2012
UPDATED: NOV 20, 2012 Draft @ BBF’12
Hazy blond, big white head. Aroma is funky, hoppy with a bit of a campsite toilet smell as well : Bit like a toilet aged saison. Edit: Turns out beer was infected...

brokensail (14042) - San Leandro, California, USA - OCT 1, 2012
Pale golden color with a white head. The nose is a bit on the floral and fruity side with some straw notes. A biscuit malt sweetness and a touch of dough. The flavor is also quite heavy on the biscuit and dough malt sweetness. Lots of sweet fruity esters with a light floral hoppiness.

Ober (2813) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - OCT 1, 2012
Draught 4th Borefts 2012. A clear golden colored beer, with a thick foamy white head. The aroma of malts, fruits and a little sour. The taste is soft malty, sweet and a little sour notes. The aftertaste of soft fruits with some bitter notes.

bierkoning (11539) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - SEP 30, 2012
UPDATED: NOV 20, 2012 Tap @ Borefts. Golden color, hazy. Malty cellar aroma. Malty flavor, sweetish with ripe fruit. Cellar notes. Butter. Not flawless but tasty and the beer grows on you. Probably slightly infected, so needs a re-rate. And a seperate journey to the Drie Kronen brewery ;-)
