Abijen (1326) - ’s-Hertogenbosch, NETHERLANDS - MAY 2, 2014
2012 bottle. Pours an orange unclear beer with a good white creme head. Smells mandarin, cream, caramel. Tastes cream, fruity, spices. Average to lively carbo, medium body and a sticky texture. A bit to old I think. But still nice.

Hoppin Frog Super Charged from Antioch. Brownish with a white head. Aroma has spices and malt and more spices. Very farmhouse-y. Taste has sweet tangy fruits, spices and heavy malt. Light to medium bodied. Tangy. Finishes somewhat short and sweetly spicy. Shrug? Solid for style although malty.

KansaiBeerLvrs (1572) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUL 12, 2013
A popular US brewery in Scandinavia is Hoppin’ Frog who are usually unavailable in Japan but did this collaboration with De Molen. It is a double saison (?) hopped like an IPA. 10.4% Bottled on July 12th, 2012 & opened on July 12th, 2013. The color is a very dark opaque brownish-gold which isn’t normal for a saison. Powerful fruity hop aroma with hints of grapes, apricots, kind of a tropical fruit vibe, nice. Kind of boozy flavor but nice like a rich Belgian beer, the malts provide a solid full body, slightly spicy as it should be for a saison. An interesting flavor mixing hops, malts & yeasty spice which is quite delicious with each sip highlighting something different. Top knotch.

Bottle @ Bruce’s. Picked up at De Molen during BBF. The pour’s deep amber with a small head. The aroma’s fart, farmhouse yeast. Sweet taffy. Lemon cake. The taste is moderately yeasty. Plenty of hot fruits, some peach and pear. Jammy plum. Moderate spices. Somewhat boozy on the finish. Active carbonation. Overall, a touch heavy. OK.
