Rating #1097 - May 24, 2014 - Spring Fling at Liquor Select - 330mL bottle shared with 3-4 patrons - An oatmeal belgian IPA? - Aging bottle but almost all of De Molen beers are bottle conditioned - this was a bit of a squirter, but a golden pour with an expertly tamed creamy white head. Aroma is doughy yeast of fresh bread. Palate has some citrus, and some unique malty sugar texture. Finishes smooth but somewhat unbalanced.

Ferris (5008) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 14, 2014
Bottle - Vintage 2012 - Pale malts, light esters and earthy hops. Cloudy orange with a decent off white head. Caramel, orange and some nice sweetness balanced by a decent bitterness.

Alengrin (2464) - BELGIUM - AUG 24, 2014
Three-grains beer with thin, off-white head and hazy orange blonde robe. Aroma of peach, yeast, wheat, nuts, vanilla and grass. Caramel malts in the mouth, fruity with velvety oats, subtle spicy accents, finishing in a rather assertive hop bitterness, more so than in e.g. a typical witbier, with which it is distantly related.

kappldav123 (5170) - GERMANY - AUG 19, 2014
Bottle as usual from De Molen - looks really good. Beer in the glass deep golden, nice head. Shy malty-spicy aroma. Starts very mild, malty, some spicy-wheaty notes, light salty background. Finish still mild, dry-malty. Okay.

AgentAle (796) - Alberta, CANADA - JUN 12, 2014
Aroma is saison like yeast, slight earthiness and lemon grass. Taste is a pale sweet maltiness with yeast and tarty properties. Floral notes here. Appearance is a yellow orange with a slight haziness. Head is learl and retains fairly poorly.

GBZ59 (1181) - BARCELONA (Catalonia), SPAIN - JAN 27, 2014
Botella de 330ml (Embotellada en feb´12. Saboreada en Ene´14). Copa Borgoña. Color ámbar anaranjado y apariencia turbia. Espuma blanca, bastante buena retención, corona tupida y persistente capa fina en la superficie. Aromas herbales, cítricos -naranja y pomelo- y malta moderadamente tostada con notas de galletas y toques fenólicos. La entrada de tostado moderado y cremoso es barrida por un amargor cítrico y ascendente. Cuerpo medio y carbonatación moderada aunque chispeante. Paladar picante y burbujeante. Final amargo y retrogusto con leve cítrico. Refrescante, aterciopelada y densa pero, desafortunadamente, la carbonatación arruina el resultado final. 330ml bottle (Bottled on feb´12. Enjoyed on jan´14). Wine glass. Orangish amber color, foggy appearance. Off-white froth, fairly good retention, close crown & lasting thin layer on top. Citric -orange & grapefruit-, mild toasted malt & herbal aromas with biscuit notes & phenolic touches. Mild toasted & creamy upfront is swept it out by increasing citric bitterness. Medium body. Moderate but lively carbonation. Spciy & gorgeous palate! Bitter finish & slight citric aftertaste. Refreshing, velvety & dense but, unfortunately, carbonation ruins it.

Lagerboy (1335) - British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 23, 2014
33 cl bottle. Ridiculously huge white foamy head with some mostly clear orange copper liquid beneath it. Aroma of coriander clove citrus and wheat. Tastes mostly like a wiezen, citrus and Belgian yeast, a bit floral, mild spicy herbal hop, smooth oats are also noticeable. Excessive carbonation, light-medium bodied, lightly hopped. Light and lusty finish. NFL (Not For Lagerboys)

hobsch (505) - Cologne, GERMANY - JAN 16, 2014
From tap at Zly Casy Praha. Pours hazy with small head. Aroma is pine, fruit. Taste is medium sweet, medium bitter, pine, floral. Low carbonation, easy going. But sweet.
