Aniela (4195) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUN 9, 2015
From my backlogg: RBESG 2014 in London, Grand Tasting. Hazy brownish beer with an beige head. Caramel fruity sweetish red berries aroma. Similar flavour, almost to sweet...but I liked it :-)

BlazerT (339) - POLAND - MAR 8, 2015
Bottle. Deep amber/light brown with beige, tiny head. Poor lacing and head lasting. As far as taste and smell is concerned this beer is not on my top list. The combination of some weird spices along with hints of oak and vanilla. Sweet and malty profile, may be some rasins too. In general the worst de molen berar I’ve ever tried.

markextrae (2490) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 1, 2015
Backlog rating remembered this as one of the most horrible beers of the molen ever. Clear copper colour, weird spices, malts, caramel, kardamon, cinnamon, weird spiced spices. Very weird taste. Bad bad beer

FatPhil (11818) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 27, 2015
330ml (Celle, Riga)
Woh, smells of milk powder or evaporated milk, some horlicks. Not what I want or expect from a beer. Some odd sweet smokiness too. Anna’s was a little sourer. Nice red, quite hazy, brief head. Smooth sweet palate. Taste is odd, sweetish, a little sour, a hint of smoke. Fish?!?!? Nope, that’s where I draw the line. Some alcohol too. That’s a total mess all over. Nope.

Marduk (4500) - Reval, ESTONIA - FEB 27, 2015
330ml bottle (Alus Celle, Riga). Slightly hazy dark amber color. Tiny size, white head, stays. Sweet, caramel, raisins, milky, dead grass in aroma. Caramel, citrus, lactic, sourish, sweet, malty roast in taste. Sweet caramel and lactic in aftertaste.

Stuu666 (7806) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 20, 2015
Bottle at Craig’s. Pours light brown, smells like tomato soup. Tastes a bit like soup too, bit thin, light bitterness.

rzymol (118) - - DEC 24, 2014
Bottle, 75cl, nearly 2 y.o. Pours tea with orange. Thin head that turns into some nice lacing. Aroma is sour, a bit like the aroma of Lief and Leed- not sure if this was intended, not disturbing at all but quite unexpected. No herbs, vanilla and spices in the aroma is a quite of dissapointment. Taste is very malty, caramel, sweety with caraway/herbal notes and spicy and softly sour finish. Cannot feel any vanilla. The aftertaste build of spicy feeling. Alcohol is well hidden. Very enjoyable and quite drinkable. Good but not ground-breaking stuff. A regular good job from De Molen.
