Until 2008 brewed by Huyghe. Until 2006 brewed by Van Steenberge. Jopen 4 Grains Bokbeer is made as a ruby red beer made with the three traditional Haarlem grain and rye as a forth grain. The beer contains 6,5% alcohol and has a fruity aroma combined with the dark malts. The taste is lightly smoky from the dark malts used, but there is some sweetness in it to.

Muddy brown pour with a huge fluffy head that lasts. An amazing amount of yeast sediment and floaties. Fruity, yeasty aroma. Flavor is initially tart and astringent. Malty flavor with raisins and yeast then appears. Not altogether bad, but the overall experience was sub-par. Strange.

(Bottle 30 cl) This doesn’t really look very appetizing. Muddy brown with a head to match. Some rather indefinable flavours - probably because of the unusual mixture of malts. Has some bitter notes but nothing much more really. This is not unpleasant, just hasn’t really got much pow. 070403

Bottle. A dirty swamp murky brown color with a HUGE thick foamy tan head. Lots of action in the bottle with a good bit of floaties. Semi-sweet, smooth, weizen-like in the smooth and light feeling on the palate. Malty enough to get the bock character but the fruitiness adds a nice twist. A raisin and caramel aroma.

Had this one at the 27th Bokbierfestival in Amsterdam (2004), but did not make any notes and forgot most of the impressions I had. But all in all it was one of the better beers I had that evening.

fiulijn (18725) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 4, 2005
Cloudy dark amber color. The aroma is very simple, with a light malty sourness. Mouthfeel is medium, well malty, with a light sourness (probably the rye). Drinkable but simple.

A nice medium sized brown head covers this murky brown ale, loaded with sediments. Surprisingly yeasty aroma immediately proposes bready flavors, but the malts quickly come in, not quite as I expected them. As hard as I tried, I couldn’t get much fruit component from that bottle. It may have been a bit oldish from the slight musty suggestions, but it was all sweet biscuity malts, reminiscent of the commercial molasses one we call "Bear Paws", around here anyway. Pretty rich on that particular caramelly or toffeeish department, but otherwise not very complete. Nice creamy palate though with somewat expanding carbonation that felt smooth on the tongue. Not bad.

Dixen (1465) - Flagstaff, Arizona, USA - JUN 8, 2005
Strong alcoholic malty nose. Red to borwn body, with a small off-white head. Thick malts and some alcohol, too cloying for my taste.

Pailhead (6385) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - JUN 4, 2005
Bottle: Strong toffee aroma with caramel, fruit, and light chocolate. Pours a dark reddish-brown with very little transparency. Off-white head with excellent retention. Lots of chunks in the bottom of the bottle. Flavor is sweet and fruity (slightly tart fruit) with toffee and caramel. Light citrus in the finish. Seems like a fruity doppelbock. Apparently in the minority, but I thought it was rather good.
