Ins Glas ergießt sich ein leicht trübes bernsteinfarbenes Bier mit schöner Schaumkrone. Geruch nach Citrus, Blumen. Geschmack sehr malzig, fruchtig herb, leicht nach Kräutern.

rosenbergh (7423) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 22, 2014
330 ml bottle. Bottled on 21/08/13. From saveur-biere.com.
Slightly cloudy amber colour with a big foamy white head. Absolutely delicious aroma of fruity hops, lactic acidity, sweetness and malt. Yummy! The flavour is strong hoppy bitterness, resin, yoghurt sourness and malt. Rather nice. Not as delicious as the aroma was but pretty still pretty nice... Nice and smooth one.

deyholla (7017) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 26, 2013
On tap at De Dire Dorstige Herten. Pours a near clear amber orange with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a good amount has a good amount pine and grapefruit with a hint of onion and a bread backbone. Flavor has more citrus and grass with a bit of pine in the finish and a sweet grain backbone.

sebletitje (6916) - Enghien, BELGIUM - DEC 8, 2013
Bouteille 33cl de HopDuvel. Col dominant blanc cassé sur une couleur orangée. Arôme est houblonné citronné avec encore un léger bouquet suret-brett, houblonnage à cru pour un nez assez sec ponctués par des notes de levure et léger citronné. Palais est malté, houblonné agréable (pour une fois) sur un léger profil pâle-cara, note d’agrumes; citronné et pamplemousse. Pas mauvaise, si on compare le tout à mes récentes expériences DM, mais reste néanmoins basique avec tjrs ce côté très M de par la levure.

Bottle from Yamaichi. Great lemony nose, citra big time, peaches, lightly tropical. Very clean golden malts. Great fruit salad aroma. Deep golden orange with a high, fine head. Lightly hazy. Sweet honey malts, oranges and lemon, minerals, sulfur, somewhat metallic. A bit soapy and oily body

lusikka (6570) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 27, 2013
330 ml bottle.
Clear copper orange colour with a large white chunky head. Strong aroma of grass, caramel and some gooseberry bush. Flavour of caramel, biscuity malts, peach, gooseberries, pine and some lemon zest. Medium bodied, foamy mouthfeel and high carbonation. Much better than an average De Molen IPA flavour-wise, but still way too malty with disturbingly high carbonation.

33 cl bottle.
Pours hazy amber color with a huge head. Aroma of floral hops, mandarin, orange zest, goose berry bush and some caramel malts. Flavor of orange, pineapple, resinous hops, caramel malts, some goose berries and subtle pine notes. Bitter malty palate. A bit boring.
