Borresteijn's rating

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 12/20
Borresteijn (4402) - Amsterdam, - NOV 20, 2012
30cl Bottle from an EKO-shop. Clear amber colour, white head. Aroma is light sour and malty, toasted malts, light grassy hops, light caramel. Flavour is toasted malts, light tart fruits, bitter nuts, hint of caramel, grassy hoppy bitter finish. Light-bodied, a bit watery mouthfeel at times. Lacks just a bit of body, but it’s fortunately not as sweet as most Belgian ambers. This was more like an Alt imo.

Bottle. Relaxing at my friend’s place in maastricht. First time I’be been alone in 11 days. I needed this break. Hazed brown red pour with a small light tan head. I smell cherries and a touch of caramel. Had a westy 12 at the bar last night that was cool. Need to adjust my ratings as rochefort wa much better. This is a bit watery. Light sweetness with a good clean hop finish. Needs more body and sweetness, but is a decent enough companion to some charcuterie I am munching on.

Troche sie zawiodlem na tym piwie. Ekologiczne uprawy, i ekologiczne piwo. Ale delikatnie gryzace w podniebienie, niewielka piana i zbyt mocne nagazowanie, w ale to niespotykane. Spora dawka lekko prazonego karmelu. Orzechowy finisz.

Flat and boring beer. Has some sweetness and caramel of course, but it’s al watery.

ghul (18) - Nieuw Vennep, NETHERLANDS - JAN 31, 2014
Very malty aroma, nice bitterness, bit lacking of big tastes. All in all not bad, but will not buy again. Probably.

skortila (4343) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - JAN 15, 2014
Bottled. Full 33cl sample. The aroma is caramelly, bit grainy and quite weak. Clear, amber coloured beer with a thin off-white head. The taste is sweetish, caramelic, bit grainy. Not much going on. Slightly sticky in the end, but overall quite dry. Light bodied. Though I have sympathy for this small big brewer trying to hold ground between the big guys, this beer is just a bit too boring.

Bosbouw (813) - Gemonde, NETHERLANDS - JAN 5, 2014
Heldere koperen kleur met een volle kraag. Ruikt weinig. Iets mout en caramel. Smaakt. Wat vlak. Beetje palmachtig.

Sissio (407) - Orsenigo, ITALY - DEC 27, 2013
Clear amber, cream minimal head, non persistent. Aroma leather, caramel, sweet malts, hint of hops. Taste ..... starts as sweet with a kind of strange, almost unpleasant bitterness. Cereals, hops, malts.

rikstar (556) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 4, 2013
Kastanjebruin bier met een witte kraag. Geur is moutig en rogge. Smaak is medium bitter en zoet, doet denken aan hazelnoot. Lekker doordrinkbaar biertje, licht trekkend mondgevoel.
