Minimal top as any De Molen i’ve had, alc. not obtrusive, tastes caramel and is way too sweet for me. Wondering how much this blocks the taste.

(330ml bottle as De Molen Amarillo @ VilleValla Pub, Linköping, Jan 22 2016) Pours lightly hazed bright pale orange with a big lingering white head and lace. Aroma of orange oil and flesh, light tropical fruit tones, grassy and floral hops, slightly sweet malts with a bit of caramel. Palate is rather sweet with caramel and sugar, orange flesh, some citrus peel, herbal peppery hops, a bit of graininess. Finish is lightly sweet, moderate astringent bitterness, pith and spicy hops, touches of grass, pine and grain. Medium full body, fairly soft carb. Not the brightest hopping but well integrated with the malt in a light strong ale sort of way. Easy drinking.

Erzengel (6745) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - JAN 25, 2016
Many thanks to my "EU Santa 2015" MrHangover for this bottle! Sweetish intense floral. The body is sticky and fresh, sweetish with too much caramel, so that the great and floral hops are a bit in the background.

R4N5H (525) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 24, 2016
33cl bottle, purchased at De Bierkoning, Amsterdam and consumed on 24-Jan-2016. Hazy dark orange amber colour with a thin tan coloured head. Sweet aroma of malt, pine and tropical fruit. Medium body and soft carbonation. Flavour is an overwhelming sweet syrup, light hops, grapefruit with a bittersweet finish. Alcohol not too well hidden. Just too sweet and unbalanced.
