Bottle, bought @De Molen Beershop. Pours murky amber with a small, staying, creamy off-white head. Aroma has caramel, wet malts, light tart, vinious. Low carbonation, fine dry and quite oily mouthfeel. Flavour is sweet, lots of caramel, vinious, plums, raisins, soft tartness, light salty. Quite nice with the tartness balancing the warmth nicely.

Bottle dated April 2013. Pours dark syrupy brown/caramel-cola colour. Very little head. Smells of sweet fruit teas, malt, sweet yeast. Taste follows through with vanilla brandy-barrel apples, treacle, sweet candy fruits and a touch of sour acidic lemon (the gose?). Largely a sweet taste that appears boldly at the front of the palate but gives way very quickly. Leaves a sweet plum-like taste in the mouth, but doesn't hang around for long. The alcohol (12.2%!) is very well-hidden considering, but does add a very pleasant warmth. The body is relatively thin and syrupy with a touch of carbonation. This suits the style, but would be a shock to the unprepared! Overall a very pleasant try. There is always something new from De Molen that you never imagined. The barley wine x gose + barrel age'-ish' style says everything you need to know about the brewery; they invent things you never thought possible and try to totally reinvent all preconceived notions of styles. Certainly a beer for the beer geek at home, and not a session beer, but certainly lived up to my exceedingly high expectations! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

(Bottle, 0.33 l, at laiti’s, 20150613, thanks) The beer poured brown and hazy. Its head was small and white. Aroma had berries, vanilla, malts and sourness. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were sourness, malts, sweetness, vanilla and bitterness. Aftertaste was woody and bitter. I detected no saltiness. This was just a beer forgotten in oak barrels.

330ml bottle - thanks someone at the Laiti tasting!
Sweetish malty aroma, some saltiness. Deep hazy orange, smallhead, Full smooth palate. Tastes orangey. Nice rich malts, some more saltiness. An odd one. Not really a gose at all, or a barley wine. Leaves me with question marks. Like didn’t Chris P share this at the sour tasting we held - and, if so, where’s my rating of that?

Bouteille achetée chez Erzbierschof - De couleur ambrée rubis avec une fine mousse blanche qui ne tient pas longtemps - Au nez des arômes de vanille provenant du fut, le fut est très présent, une forte présence de malt, malt caramel, de fruits confits, de pruneaux, des notes de cidre, un nez assez plaisant mais un peu écoeurant - En bouche des notes acides mélangée à du caramel très doux, des arômes de pruneaux et beaucoup de malt, le fut est toujours aussi présent - Corp rond et puissant, amertume moyenne, carbonation correcte, sucrée et acide, longue final acide et fruits sec - un drôle de mélange un peu écoeurante pas mon style de bière mais très bien réalisée

330ml bottle @laiti’s, thanks. Hazy light brown color. No head. Sour, salty, vinegar and some fruity tones in aroma. Sour, bit vinegar, grainy, malts and touch of salt in taste. Salty sour aftertaste. At this point I don’t get any alcohol from beers *hick*. Waking me up type of brew.

Alengrin (3670) - BELGIUM - APR 12, 2015
One of the countless inventive Molen brews, presented as an oak-aged "imperial Gose" - a style experiment proving the seemingly endless creativity of this and other Dutch craft breweries nowadays. Two year old vintage. Beautiful, lightly hazy, warm coppery amber colour, loose, lightly greyish white head breaking open in instants but retaining well around the edges. Complex, rustic, noble bouquet of strawberry yoghurt, lime, vanilla-like oaky tannins, caramel, hazelnuts, redcurrant, passion fruit, lots of tangelo and blood orange, cognac, cloves, medium dry sherry (very clearly so, undoubtedly coming from an early stage of oxidation), brown rhum, candied cherries, honey. Refined but very sweet, even somewhat sugary onset, candied fruits, fortunately not too sticky, gracious and refreshing along with a sharpish, lemony acidic touch enlightening the palate, spicy suggestions (cloves, aniseed) retronasally, oily, smooth caramelly maltiness underneath, finishing in lingering sweetness as well as persisting but gentle acidity, lots of wood, peppery and somewhat citrussy hops providing more aroma than bitterness, and expectedly a great deal of warming, almost burning, rhum-like alcohol, heating up the throat but not becoming too wry or astringent; very vinous too. A complex ’upper class’ ale, with a very long flavour development. In terms of style, this is indeed a tough one to classify; it does have the sourishness of a Gose, but I do not find any saltiness in it at all (salt is not mentioned among the ingredients either - anyway, if it would have been used, it would have to serve only as a means to increase certain flavours without becoming too noticeable by itself); still, in terms of looks, strength, sweetness, mouthfeel and overall impression, this is much closer to a barley wine, if you ask me. The fruity sour aspect does give it a kind of refreshing, frivolous graciousness which is absent in most any other barley wine, making it seem less strong than it is. In any case: very interesting beer, but perhaps a bit demanding for a tired palate...
