COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our bokbier for Easter; not too sweet, thereby producing a fine flavour. The flavour and aromas give a nicely balanced mix of fruit, coriander, yeast and hops. An enjoyable combination in which the bitter element gets an additional boost from the lightly roasted malt. The aftertaste is slightly sparkling, with a long-lasting, fresh, sweet flavour. An excellent beer for celebrating the arrival of spring!

R2k2 (385) - NETHERLANDS - APR 29, 2013
Unclear, caramel/honeylike colored beer, and a light-brown foamy head. Sweet aroma, which reminds me a bit of apple. It has a slightly bitter and malty taste. The aftertaste switches between bitter and flat-sweet, but is doesn’t have a dry ending. troebel, caramel/honingkleurig bier met een lichtbruine kop. Het aroma is zoetig en lijkt in de verte op appel. De smaak is licht bitter en moutig De nasmak wisselt van bitter naar plat, maar heeft geen droge afdronk.

Bottle, 330 ml, at home. Poured into a tulip. ABV 7%. Very deep orange colour, hazy, with bits and pieces floating in it. A bit taller than one finger head, white in colour, with average retention and no lacing left on the glass. Aroma is yeasty, with fruit notes and sugars. Taste follows the aroma, quite fruity, a bit of yeast, nice mild hoppy bitterness. Medium body, carbonation just a bit above average. Good dryness on the palate. Overall, quite nice and enjoyable.

Countbeer (5133) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - APR 3, 2013
Bottle: Medium sized, lively and fairly quick changing creamy off white foamy head. Changes into a closed thin lacing on top of a hazy orange colored beer. Aromas of bread, malts, gass, manure, porridge, grains, glue and cleaner. Flavours of malts, cream, spices, bread, dough, some creamy spices, some (malty) bitters, some plant extracts. Aftertaste is malty, floral, bitter and a bit herbal. Low carbo, creamy mouthfeel, medium body and a creamy texture. Not quite balanced and there’s some strange bitter and spice tones that make it a bit less interesting.

PotjeBier (1935) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - APR 1, 2013
Of course I’ve been drinking this since 1986...but not in recent years. Now that the quality of ’t IJ beers seems to be back on track it’s time again. Amber hazy color. Firm off white head with good retention. Aroma’s: caramel, fruity, yeasty, biscuits and spices. Malty sweetness and some tart fruits retronasal. Flavor is only lightly sweet, fruity. Medium bodied. Finishes with a subtle bitterness. Almost like the old days.
