From the maturation tank to the glass - the Borbecker Zwickelbier

Borbecker Naturtrübes Zwickelbier

The last one I drunk at my friend’s birthday party was the Borbecker Naturtrübes Zwickelbier. Its colour was lighter than amber, something between brown and red. While holding it against the light you could clearly see the particles swimming in the glass – unfiltered beer.

Smell appeared ok to me. I consider it nothing special, perhaps a little emphasis on the malt, of course the yeast and more fruity than the other beers brewed by the Dampfe.

It went down smooth while leaving a warming taste behind. If you like unfiltered beers you might like this one as well.

The Borbecker Naturtrübes Zwickelbier isn’t my favourite from the Dampfe brewery but it’s well produced and fits perfect into the assortment of these brewery.
