COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

75 cl. bottle, corked & caged sampled / shared @ Tim’s De Molen & assorted beers tasting // fun label, typical Molen stuff but with the two breweries logos, it looks a bit funny // dark brown, murky, creamy white head // smell is supercharged, lots of Hoppin’ Frog hops, their typical profile, works great in this context, lots of pine, touch earthly, three bark, grapefruit, bitter herbs // taste is sugar, banana, caramel – I am way more into sweetness than hoppyness, so the added sweetness works for me – bitter Hoppin’ Frog / USA hops, lots of pine, sticky, three bark, plenty of pine, sugar blended with Molen spices en spicy yeast, sharp, touch dark fruits, great blend of both breweries styles // lightly sticky, quite full with all of the hops jammed in this plus sweet, touch sticky malts // I know that loving this seems stubborn since others were quite turned off by this but I genuinely loved this & think that this is a great blend of both breweries signatures // fine stuff

Happily can say I have had at least 4 bottles of this beauty when it first came out. It is my favorite of the series. Today opened a bottle having laid down 3 months ago. BOOM! Flavor a bit more mature with sweet malt off the top & still a nice citrusy hop finish. Still have another bottle left which I hope to crack in 6 mos or so....if I can wait.

Uhlen (251) - Trondheim, NORWAY - FEB 13, 2013
Amber ruby in the glass. Medium offwhite head that lasts. Aroma of citrus and sweetness. Great mouthfeel, and supersweet taste. Alot of candysugar in the taste, almost quad-like. Also quite spicy. Hoppy aftertaste. This is my kind of beer! Definately the best sIPA I’ve had so far.

BoringBard (139) - NORWAY - FEB 13, 2013
Pours a golden amber and translusent with a tiny white head that disappears. Smells like saison - citrus and yeast. Almost chewable, extremely sweet but is balanced out by the hops of the IPA and the spices. Recomendable!

Complexa aromàticament: llúpol fresc, fruites tropicals,... Amb molt de cos. Textura cremosa en boca. Final llarg, amarg i alcohòlic. Perillosament fantàstica.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 6, 2012
Bottle from Nina’s. Pours an amber colour with a decent white head. A fantastic dry hopped saison nose. Similar flavours with well balanced alcohol. Moderate carbonation and nicely bitter. A fantastic beer!

Bottle @ home. Clear amber to brown colour with a decent white head. Smells hoppy, fresh, grapefruit, malts, sweet. Tastes sweet, fruity, red fruits, hops, bitter, flowers, wood (pine maybe?). Lovely and amazing taste. Full body, soft fizzy carbo.

dreadnord (1013) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 16, 2012
Pours light brown with a small off white head. Nose is straw, bready cinnamon rolls, pine and hay. Taste is mostly bitter with a good sweet malt backbone. Mouthfeel is crisp and clean yet soft and smooth. Body is heavy and finish is long. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
