FatPhil (8995) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 18, 2013
330ml bottle (BB Brevinga, Riga)
Initially a very earthy aroma, quite like bramlin cross, later, however, after it’s settled in the glass, it’s quite sweet. Has some pungent hoppy hints too. Lovely in the mouth, a great bite and gentle tingle from hoth the hops and the carbonation. Nicely attenuatated. Quite green and fresh hops in the taste, delicious roasted grains, very bready, but not sweet. Love that finish. So crisp and a great noble hop bite. No sign of 7.5% - classic de Molen!

pivnizub (8724) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - JAN 6, 2012
Bottle: Hazy, reddish-amber coloured, lacy off-white head, moderate caramelly fruity and distinctive hoppy nose; robust bitter-sweet flavour, medium bodied, pretty soft; dry lingering - with hops sticking to the palate - hoppy finsh, balancing sweet dried fruits and malt in the aftertaste. Very good English Strong Ale, even though brewed in the Netherlands…

MoritzF (8389) - Bochum, GERMANY - JAN 31, 2012
(bottle, 33cl, 7.5% abv) Slightly hazy, copper to deep amber colour with a medium-sized tanned foamy head. Slightly sugary sweet malty and distinctively fruity aroma with notes of candied berries, strawberries and peaches, accompanied by shades of caramel in the background. Bitter-sweet flavour, medium bodied with a soft carbonation. Cara-malty and fruity taste with present herbal and slightly woody hops; dry-ish bitter hoppy and quite lasting finish with fruity spots. Really nice. 25.XII.11

GT2 (8161) - San Diego County, California, USA - DEC 5, 2011
Tap at Paradiso Dupont. Poured a clear, light orange with a small, whiter head. HUGE yellow apple nice, insane cidery notes and acetaldehyde. Orange cough syrup comes to mind as well. Even small vinegar. Uhhhh. Taste is bitter, soapy, very astringent like over steeped malt. Tannic red apple skins as well. Super tea tannic astringency. What.....happened.....
