3.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: APR 29, 2011 Pours hazy golden/dark orange with an espectacular and profuse head. Amazing and powerful aroma of flowers and sweet fruits, some dough. The aroma is detectable even away from the glass. Berries, some citrus, medium sweetness, light bitterness and lightly sour in the taste. Light sweet after taste that hangs there for a while, some bitterness, oily feel, soft carbonation. Overall very good with emphasis in the aroma. <<<< Bottle.
Also tried on tap at Schouskjelleren >>> Cloudy orange, average white head. Floral aroma, subtle hint of peaches. Medium to high bitterness,
light sweetness. Medium body, oily feel, soft carbonation, long bitter after taste. Good one.
Much better on bottle.

A little sweet for me to give it a better grade, this beer had a great flavour with a medium body. I liked it better than De Molen’s Rasputin.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAY 29, 2011 Bouteille de 355ml au Cheval Blanc. Bière dorée passablement foncée avec une forte effervescence. La mousse est blanche. Le nez est fortement houblonné avec une touche de malt en fond de trame. En bouche elle est forte, l’alcool se fait sentir, les houblons sont mordants. C’est une bonne bière, agréable.
Aussi bouteille de 750ml. bouchon de liège avec les mêmes résultats.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours in a semi hazy red amber color, with an off-white head.
Aroma is fresh and fruity. I get citrus, gooseberries, raspberries, honey and suttle licorice.
Taste is sweet and fruity with some floral tendencies. Quite complex fruitiness with gooseberries, strawberries, pineapple, papaya, clementine and blood grapefruit, but also flavours of hibiscus, fresh hops and resin. Long hoppy finish.
Don´t expect an Amarillo single hop beer as the name suggests. I didn´t sense much of those typical Amarillo flavours at all. It´s going more in the direction of tropical fruits. Overall a good beer.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle at Håndverkerstuene, Oslo. Pours hazy orange with a small off-white head. Aroma is fruity with some faint malts as well. Taste is bitter hoppy, with some strong resiny hops as well. Minimal sweetness. A bit over the top for a simple guy as me.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Tap @ Olutravintola Konttori, Tampere)
Poured a hazy amber colour with a massive white head. Lots of CO2 here. Floral hops and citrus on the aroma with a bit of alcohol. Flavor of fresh and diverse hoppiness but also fruits. Full bodied, lively carbonated with a long finish and a warming mouthfeel. Nice beer from De Molen once again.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Poured with a huge head by the bar tender, way too big for the style. Slighty tan head nevertheless. Murky, dark brown orange color. Big grapefruit hop aromas, light tinge of malt sweetness in the aroma as well, caramel come in but the hops really shine. Hops are a bit soapy in the taste, slight citrus. Viscous and oily, but very spritzy carbonation,. Decent enough.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: OCT 2, 2011 Brown/Reddish appearance, huge head on the beer. Nose: grapefruit. Quite balanced bitterness. Full bodied beer. 3.5
Re-rate 02/10/2011. On tap @ De Molen - tulip glass. Pours dark orange/amber with an egg shell head - quite persisting (no carbonation left). Marvelous nose of caramel, grapfruit and some exotic fruits. Taste is massive and is in line with the aromas. Bitter and sweet in perfect balance. Niiiice!!
