Berging from Purmerend is a very promising new small artisan brewery. Their b19 bock is for me the proof that they are not just lucky, but they know what they do.
Delicious, 6.5% strong, slightly sweet brown with complex flavour if banana, plumbs, coffee and roasted barley. — 2 months ago
Bock season in Holland. Dark autumn beers. This one is with rye. Not totally my thing, a bit too feeble sweet. I like them a bit dryer and more bitter. — 2 months ago
Dark cherry nose and mouth but not too sweet and well balanced — 3 months ago
Delicious, need to keep some bottles to drink it over 5 years. — 3 days ago
Wonderful raspberry! A good before or after food beverage. Almost like an aperitif. — 2 months ago
Looks like peach nectar, with the lightest, looping bubbles in a loose bunch atop, becomes a petri sample of fruit fungus, then all clear to firework lacing and morning mist. Big wood notes, though not as toasty in parts, cigar box, funky softwood of dead forest fall, ripe for mushrooms. Lovely dried lemon peel, orange peel, and dried apricot in cigar boxes, live pineapple and pencil shavings in a clean attic. On the palate, yellow cherry, funky sour pineapple, lime-cedar, lemongrass, savory, dried okra, a drop of orange bitters, nose filling blood orange, and lemon oil for the duration. Fantastic nuances, amazing balance, woody depth. Just fine craftsmanship here, from the old school. — 2 months ago
