Fast gone white head over pineapplejuice-like beer. Aromatic, green leaves, fruity esters but also musk, peach drops (sweet). Bit metallic in the mouth, very dry. Fruity, but extremely restrained in that direction. Vegetable flavours too, bitterish but more than just that. Old straw. Medium to well bodied, good carbonation, very hopoilslick. Weird beer, difficult to judge. Thanks to Stef!

Small, evanishing whitish head over hazy yellow beer. Ureum, asafoetida, hot olive oil, hot orangepeel, and mineral. Nose from another universum. Fruitesters, especially orange & orangepeel. Wry bitter, bit cheesy hops. Good carbonation, very slick, oily. Medium bodied at least. Not bad!

Thick, but fast gone dark cream head over brown-black beer. Bit sweet dank, milkchocolate, chocomilk. Hazelnut with chocolate. Ever so slightly roasted hint, fast drowned in a chocomilk bath. Cocos, copra, vanilla, increasing warming up. False impression of body, slick. Meeeh. The beer equivalent of Nesquick,

Small if stable tan-cream head over virtually black beer. Outspoken raw coffee nose, but with chocolate/cacao mixed in. Dark malts galore. I would have guessed lactose, but apparently not used. Dry cold coffee, watered down. Bit malt(roasted)cookies, roasted barley. Cola and almonds retronasal. Bit watery, lean-ish. Not creamy-chewy as a - much lighter - Guinness draught. OK, nothing more. Thanks to Stef!

Head gone in a couple of seconds; hazy amberish golden beer. Bretts a mile out, sweetish, sherry-ish; faro-like, sweetened lambic, wood. Sherry with a slight but pleasing sourish twist. Malts, wheat, wet wood. Coriander thankfully invisible. Fruity hints. Certainly not undercarbonated, despite what the label says. Slick, bit oily feel, medium bodied. I had started to think it impossible, but here it is: an excellent beer from Grutte Pier! Thanks to Stef!

Fluffy, good, lightly yellowish head, stable, over cloudy orange-golden beer. Oranges, clove, banana, yeastesters & fusels, but all dosed, nowhere exaggerated. The same in flavour - all classical things are there, none overwhelming, even almost as watered down - except for clove in the finish. Perfumey - bathroom flavouring with each new sip with some banana. Medium bodied at best. This one is not very carbonated, certainly not for the style. OK, but not one to go out of your way for. Thanks to Joren!

Shortlived yellowish white head over copperish cold-hazed orange beer, finely carbonated. Sweet nose with a dash of diacetyl. Sweetcorn, hay, immortelles. Diacetyl is less pronounced in the mouth. Maltbomb, but the finish has a - faintly metallic - dash of hops. Again sweetcorn, buttered. Finished dry, metallic. Slick, not very well-bodied, long lasting aftertaste. Classical. Diacetyl keeping demure, it is still pleasing. Thanks to Joren!

Bottled 26-02-2016. Salt, bourbon, smoked and smthwine-ish are all there, but the imperial saison must have run off. Very flakey, almost like drinking a snow globe. Flavorwise: salty! Followed by bourbon, biiig boozy note, warming, rich and malty sweet.

Pretty bitter, easy drinking, some roast. Not much apple, neither as fruit nor as juice. Needs more sweetness, body or actually apple. Bit disappointing, one of those failed Borefts recipes that aren't undrinkable, but just a waste.

Unfortunately well past its prime. Some maltyness, but most of the hop freshness has gone. Still bitter.

Bottled 17-08-2015. BB 17/8/16. Despite its age explosively hoppy. Dense and creamy. Heavy bitter, resiny, lingering bitter aftertaste. Wow.

Bottled 10-05-2016. Lots of caramelly sweetness, yet also fairly bitter. Grassy hoppyness. Quite dense, lots of thick foam. Nice stuff!

Good stuff, but not sure if it fully works. Esra on its own I love because of the thick, salty, umami flavor profile. Here the bourbon overpowers, lots of barrel, woody, buttery. Now it's just another very good BBA stout/porter.

Bottled 01-04-2015, but definitely not a joke. Bottle #438. Good head of foam, smells fruity and vinous. Tastes super vinous, sweet, woody and fruity. Underneath a rich, porter. Soft, smooth, raisins. Hint of peat? Stunning.

At first, very alcoholic, which mellows hugely after a few more sips and warming. Then delicious. Fruit, wood, boozy, barrel.

Very boozy, the sharpness and alcoholic hit of the base BA beer has been softened. Improvement. Dangerously heavy. Love it.

Bottled 25-01-2016. As they say: funky peaty. But also the awesomeness of the base: thick, rich, salty licorice-filled porter. Add to that peaty Ardbeg, extra boozyness and a lovely rich, funky brettyness. Very lightly tart. Complex stuff, awesome.
