A very satisfying beer. Dry yet refreshing. Has the typical molen flavors but without the overpowering Saaz hop they usually do. It’s a bit more in balance with this one. Some fruitiness, spiciness, mild sweetness and light bitter. Very refreshing on a hot summer day!

NikkTwist (1517) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 6, 2014
Draft at Monks. Hazy medium amber pour with bright white foam that left lace. Blonde toffee caramels. Tangelos. Feels fairly watered down but still better than the 4.5 ABV might suggest. Thankfully not too sweet. Dry peppery finish. Doesn’t feel like a proper Bitter to me at all.

Good lingering head and nice nose with citrus notes. Light to mid caramel color with a touch of haze. Touch of spice or pepper on the tongue, but with an unpleasant sourness. Soy sauce comes to mind. Minimal webbing on the glass. I'm a big fan of De Molens, but not of this particular effort. However taste is subjective and judging by head and mouthfeel, this is another quality brew from DM so if you don't mind sour in your beer you might love this.

MattiasA (862) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAR 5, 2014
Bottle @ Tröls. More an apa than a bitter according to me. Heavy on the floral aromas and some, earthy and cereal aromas as well.

MarcoDL (1984) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 27, 2014
Flat beer with almost no head. Mild taste of caramalt. Hopping is subtle, with some nice amarillo. Bit boring.

Botella de 33 cl tomada en pacos en diciembre de 2011. bastante suave con ligero cuerpo de 4.5 vol que la hacen muy fácil de beber. Para tomar al principio.

Donker goudkleur met dikke schuimlaag. Scherpe hoplucht. Wat waterige smaak, bitter. Prima, niet bijzonder.

Bottle. Yellow-brown, cloudy with a big white head. Aroma has yeast, plastic, citrus and grain. Taste has pine, citrus, some hay and grapefruit on the aftertaste. Very tasty for a low alcohol count.
