Between golden and copper. Big foamy head, very lasting, lot of lacing. Smells of citrus, floral. Medium carbonation, medium body. Taste of caramel, mango, citrus. Mellow tastes. The fruity sweetness balances the bitterness. Light bitter aftertaste. A bit soapy. Yet crispy. Good.

jmgreenuk (4273) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - SEP 10, 2013
Tap at the Brewery. Poured a clear deep amber with a frothy white head. The aroma is rich, fruity with some hoppy notes. The flavour is medium bitter with a malty, liqourice, hoppy fruit, spicy pepper palate. Half way to a DIPA and very tasty!

MarcoDL (2149) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 28, 2013
Decent IPA with the usual fruity notes of hops. Bit grassy as well. Nice, but the Molen has better IPA’s, I don’t understand what extra value this one has for them.

oh6gdx (20302) - Vasa, FINLAND - OCT 1, 2013
Draught@SBWF2013. Orange colour, small white head. Aroma is fruity, floral, mild wooden notes along with some slight toffee. Flavour is fruity, floral, wooden and mild herbal notes. Very balanced and fresh. A bit of a Molen "houseflavour" to this (the flavour often found in the paler beers of theirs).

Douberd (2228) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - DEC 21, 2013
Bottle 330 ml at home, into a tulip. ABV 6.2% Initial pour gives a clear deep orange copper colour on the body, with a big white head on top, thick and soapy with very good retention and medium lacing left on the glass. Aromas of citrus, orange peel, grapefruit, but it also has some of a belgian ale in it, as far as the fruity aromas are concerned. Nice clean taste, moderate hoppy, citrus, grapefruit, some pine on the finish. Good bitterness, mild, with long duration. Medium thin body, average carbonation. Very good.
