Kopstootje, one of our own favorites here at the brewery is making its third appearance around Portland. The biere de garde style beer is formulated to be the perfect back to the wonderful Bols Genever. Sharing many of the same ingredients - barley, wheat, rye, maize, ginger, angelica, juniper, clove, and more, the Kopstootje shows an exciting nose but drinks light and crisp, thanks to a careful lager fermentation at elevated temperatures in one of our open tanks. Try it with a pour of the Bols for the complete experience!

On tap at Upright, pours a hazy golden with a small white head. Aroma of light spices, herbal and farmhouse notes. Flavour of slightly salty notes, some spices, and some restrained farmhouse notes. Pretty light-bodied and lightly salty. Decent stuff, though not a whole lot of character to it.

On tap at the brewery. Golden light yellow, hazy thin white head. Big nose lots of yeast spices and lots of gin like flavors. Very interesting and tasty beer.

On tap at the brewery. I believe this is mixed with Bols Genever. Very interesting. Pours a mostly clear golden color with a medium white head. A big herbal nose with some fruit. Berries, gin, some earthy lemon and even oranges, sweet and easy malt base. Good.

Pours a light orange. Good sparkle to it but with each sip the licorice and anise take over the forefront. An interesting experiment that just misses for me.

Tap @ Upright.... Poured golden with a white head. The nose had some herbs, dirty earthiness and root tones. The botanicals played nicely adding depth, floralness, and bitterness to the malt body. Couldn’t taste much juniper but I could see how this would pair nicely with Bols Genever as it is intended to.
