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.

Pours amber colour, offwhite long lasting head. Incredible lacing. Full body with very low carbonation. Taste is full of pineapples and a bit of caramel. Overall an amazing beer!

Bottle. Sample at Voldby Ølmesse 2014. Amber pour with a decent head. Lots of floral, melon, resin and grapefruit. Pretty tasty.

Extremely cloudy, golden color. Big fruity aroma, mango, pineapple, also piney. Thick and creamy texture. Full body, soft carbonation. Medium to heavy bitterness. Fruity bittersweet finish. This is just excellent!¨

camoes (113) - PORTUGAL - AUG 27, 2014
Review based on the BJCP2008 guidelines (style 14C). Bottle 33 cl - Bottled on 01/05/14. AROMA: medium/low fruity and floral aromas, balanced with a sweet malt profile. very prominent alcohol aroma but it isnt hot. APPEARANCE: deep golden/orangeish color and very hazy (dry hopped). good off white moussy head with good retention and alcohol derived viscosity. TASTE: sweet malty profile balanced with floral and slight fruity notes. high bitterness that lingers well beyond a medium-dry aftertaste. clean and smooth alcohol background without solventy character. PALATE: smooth medium body with a smooth warming alcohol profile. medium carbonation. OVERALL: although a nice IPA, its very high residual sweetness isnt characteristic of an imperial/double IPA.

JefVerstraete (1311) - BELGIUM - AUG 25, 2014
Bottle @ De Paas, Den Haag. Hazy amber colour, beige creamy foam. Sweet aroma taste with hoppy bitter finish. Warming alcoholic finish. Not easy drinkable. A good sipper!

Kleurplaatje (9) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - AUG 19, 2014 does not count
33cl bottle. Smells fruity. Appealing appearance. Pours cloudy amber-coloured with a thick foamy white head which lasts for quite long. Aromas of caramel and honey are quite noticeable. Aromas of citrus hops are also present , but not that overwhelmingly much. The Amarillo tastes quite sweet and its bitter touch is quite soft and a bit warmish. The taste fades a bit too quickly to my likings, which makes this beer a bit bland. It sure is tasty and definetely not bad, but it misses something to make it less bland. Could have had more bitterness.

Beerconnaiseur (93) - BELGIUM - AUG 19, 2014
On draught. Creamy amber, pretty murky. Soft hoppy taste, citrus, sirope. Soft character is pleasing, aroma is mute, a bit too dull to my taste. Should try a bottle...
