patrick767 (3728) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - JAN 13, 2013
bottle - Pours very hazy orange with a huge off white head. It gives off very gassy aroma that takes a long time to dissipate and lends a bandage like character to the flavor. Over carbonation I guess. Once it finally settles down there’s a good resin and citrus hops flavor with substantial bitterness, a medium to full body, and a lingering bitter finish. Good. I would rate it higher if it weren’t for the off smell and flavor that lasted quite some time after the initial pour.

Form the bottle, pours hazy orange with white head. Nose is floral and some pine. Taste is sweet summer flowers and resin some weedy hops there too. Sticky rich mouthfeel. This mademy day...

MarkoNm (1743) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - AUG 23, 2015
Pours a hazy orangey amber color, topped with a small foamy off-white head. Biscuity malt aroma, some molasses. Sweet and biscuity, caramel presence can be felt. Herbal finish, quite strong. Mild bitterness with some alcohol presence. Not totally something I like.

bottle that is old, but I’ll give it a whirl (10/30/2012). nose is nutty which means it aged well but the flavors will be off and since it is a dipa, the taste will be muted. So far I don’t mind. boozy. a sipper. I get nothing but nuttiness.

Bottle, De Molen Amarillo. Hazy amber, offwhite sudsy froth. Fruity hop aroma, passion fruit and peach, toasted malt. Evident alcohol later in. Flavour is quite sweet, bisquit with medium dark citrus bitterness and caramely malt to back it up. Slightly sticky with good lasting bitterness. Very drinkable. Very nice.

Maakun (1639) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - AUG 9, 2015
Tap at Haarlems bierfestival. Slight hazy dark golden with very big cream colored head. Tropical fruits up front with mango, some grapefruit, very resinous, a but sugary. Sweet malts but not on the caramel side of things. Quite sweet with light to medium bitterness. Over medium bodied with soft carbonation.

The scent is fruity. The flavor is sweet, fruity, floral and well hopped. Really good bitterness that fills the upper part of the mouth forever. Good beer. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.
