Fruity, malty taste with dried fruit, wild berries, marzipan, candy sugar and a generous spicy bitterness in the finish. More than medium body, slightly sweet. Tasty and very nice.

ysusi (19) - Mexico, MEXICO - JUN 13, 2012
Beige creamy head. Amber to copper color, cloudy and not pasteurised. Aromas are mostly malty, some fruits and sweetness, alcohol is present. Tastes mostly like it smells, but hops are a bit more evident. Moderately bitter, herbal and floral hops. Some honey notes. Alcohol makes it a warmer. Medium body. Clean in its style, although not the best from De Molen in my opinion.

Description: Bière ambrée avec une belle tête crémeuse de mousse beige. Cette mousse est durable. Le nez est composé de caramel fruité et de houblon herbeux. La bouche est de houblon amer. La levure fruitée donne une touche agréable. Cette bière est agréable malgré son âge.
Note: 7/10

SlovakSniper (3634) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 1, 2012
Molenbier (33 cl, Embouteillée le 23/06/2011. Une dégustation offerte par rodenbach99) La surprise de la soirée. Une belle robe ambrée et sa mousse durable. Une belle dentelle. Un conditionnement satisfaisant. Un beau nez de caramel et de houblons, une touche fruitée qui provient de la levure? Des saveurs caramélisées qui sont stimulées par des houblons au profil herbeux. Une bonne sensation en bouche. Un corps, des bulles et une texture bien enlignés. Une finale davantage maltée que houblonnée. Simplement agréable.

teddybeer (2509) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAY 27, 2012
33cl bottle. Orangish colour with a nice formation of an off-white, nice lacing, moderate lacing head. Aroma is hoppy, red fruits are present (cherries, strawberries). Flavour is strong bittery from the beginning to the end, dry in the final. Carbonation is medium. Body is medium.

TET (1946) - FINLAND - APR 27, 2012
A dark brown beer with a big, lasting and beige head. Aroma is caramelly and sweet, berries, strawberries, "wet wood", surprisingly "berryjuice" like aroma. Taste is toffeeish and malty, sweet berries, after beginning taste turns into dryer and wooden hoppyness takes place, dark fruits, aftertaste is tight and slightly biting. Medium+ bodied, nice and style like drinkability. Aftertaste isn’t very nice, otherwise, berry, quite unique and interesting beer.

JEK69 (396) - FRANCE - APR 4, 2012
Dark ruby/browny with a huge white/beige foam head that never fall. Nose is typically English (specific hop? or malts that are used for that brew?) but some off-flavours can be noted such as burnt grain. In mouth: too much foam, malt dominates, but a cap’s metallic taste spoil the malty profile then bitterness surrounds everything in aftertaste.

borisz (376) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 31, 2012
Dark ruby brew, fruity aroma. Carbonation under control. Complex. Rather sour, cherries, rhubarb. Does not fit into standard categories. Vinous. Ends up bittersweet, there are strong hop elements dancing around a body that has plenty malt sweetness. Fine, but one bottle is enough at a time.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 25, 2012
In bottle from Nina’s. Pours an red amber colour with a huge yellowish beige head. Very high carbonation. Aroma of toffee apples, caramel and grassy hops. A treacle and candied popcorn flavour upfront before the bitterness kicks in. Very nice.
