U.S. Meets Europe. A collaboration with De Molen Brouwerij and Hoppin’ Frog Brewery. Kilos of American hops to add a crazy twist to this European-style ale. The fruity, spicy flavors of this malty Double Saison are nicely complimented by an abundance of late and Dry-hopping with the finest American hops. Bottled on Jul 12th. 2012

Note: This is the version brewed at De Molen. For the 10.9% Hoppin’ Frog version, go to the page of that brewery.

UPDATED: FEB 2, 2013 Bottle: Medium sized vast and thicker creamy head, changes slowly, on top of a hazy amber colored beer. Smell is pretty strange: lots of rubber with flowers, yellow fruit, barleys and some spiced alcohol. Taste is a strange mix of barleys, fruit (apricot, peach, berry, grapefruit), rubber, alcohol, spices, flowers and cream. After a while the alcohol has a pretty dominating nasty factor in this beer. Aftertaste is fruity (apricot and peach), wheat, bitters, malts, herbs and some floral tones. Low carbo, soft almost silky mouthfeel, medium body and a light creamy texture. A bit out of balance, strange beer. Specially on the rubber, rubber taste and smell are not bad in beer, but not when there is much rubber in the taste and smell (and it smells like, yes, condoms)... The soft silky oily fruity side straightens it out...

chimpgibbon (384) - London, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 10, 2014
Bottle. Big frothy muddy orange affair. Full on hop and cheesy funky aromas, plenty malt, spicey. Blood orange and hefty sweetness in the taste, some lemon, touch of cough syrup, more deep boozy orange. Farmhouse elements kick on late. Palate starts rich and oily then ends medium dry. Very interesting beer, maybe a little intense even for the abv.

0,7 liter fles. @home. Een Ipa. De soort waar ik het minst van houd. Deze heeft wel veel smaak. Het schuim is snel verdwenen.

Abijen (1573) - ’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.

Mooie caramel kleur met een volle crème kraag. Ruikt caramel, honing, kruiden, beetje vanille. Smaakt lekker zoet, beetje crème, vanille. Iets bittere afdronk. Dikke structuur.

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.

Light body with pillowy effervescence and a dry crisp finish. I absolutely loved this beer, and it was one of the highlights of the event for me.
