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!

Countbeer (5043) - 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 thereís some strange bitter and spice tones that make it a bit less interesting.

PotjeBier (1862) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - APR 1, 2013
Of course Iíve been drinking this since 1986...but not in recent years. Now that the quality of ít IJ beers seems to be back on track itís time again. Amber hazy color. Firm off white head with good retention. Aromaís: 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.
