Theydon_Bois (18199) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - OCT 12, 2013
Tap at Borefts 13, 27/09/13. Hazed dark amber/chestnut brown with no head. Nose is big on dark fruits, woody, boozey, soured cherry aroma, tarte fruits, sugars. Taste comprises sweet sugars, earthy tones, dark fruit, sweet cake mix, boozey notes, woody oaky sweet alchol drench. Full bodied, fine carbonation, sweet in the execution. Decent enough barley wine, the alcohol is well integrated for 15%, a little overly sweet throughout which prevents this one reaching a higher draw for moi !

Borefts Beer Festival 5. Day 1. Hazy amber - brown beer, no real head. Palate is smooth with superfine carbonation. Lovely sweet malt with sweet toffee. Nice Port Wine berry fruits and general vibe. These two aspects are well integrated. Finishes smooth. A wonderful sweet, smooth and tasty barleywine and for me beer of the festival. Not the first time for a Bommen & Granaten variant!

Martinus (4569) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - OCT 7, 2013
Slightly hazy brown colour, no head. Aroma of cherry, caramel, malts, brown sugar, wood, syrup, light sour hint. Sweet flavour, syrup, brown sugar, red fruit, wood, red wine, hint of brett. Finish red wine, caramel, cherry and brett. No brett sourness though, only a bit of funk. Bit strange in composition, but enjoyable.
(Draught @ BBF V, Bodegraven. My 2222nd rating)

bierkoning (12918) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - OCT 6, 2013
Draught @ Borefts 2013. Amber color. Vinous aroma, malty. Malty sweet almost sugary flavor with candied fruit and hints of bourbon and vanilla. The brett is hard to notice. Some onion and cabbage flavors. But this does suit the beer, that needs some added complexity. Pleasant.
