Bottle. Dark ruby, light haze, offwhite cream. Berries, light leathery wooden nose. Citric hoppy entry. Goes from berries, orangepeel over tobacco, wood and spices to a very dry hoppy finish. Fullbodied, dry mouthfeel. Long fruitcaramel aftertaste. Very pleasant.

Aroma is a bit unpleasant with berries, some gooseberry bush and nettles. Flavour has gooseberry bush, nettles and berries. Weird and not good.

caesar (4966) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - APR 22, 2013
Tap @ de Molen. Hazy amber to copper color, medium head. Aroma of some caramel malt, toasty, grassy hop, bit spicy, floral. Medium sweet in taste, only slightly bitter. More belgian feel to it than english. Boring for de Molen.

OleR (4786) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 18, 2011
0.33L bottle. Slightly hazed deep ruby red body. A finger of dense greyish-blond bubbles on top. Complex aroma. Vinous fruitiness, English fruit-cake, toasted peppery malts, earthy and spiced hops. Nice! More than medium full. A deep, refined malt-sweetness. Solid bitterness. Fine tones of dark dried fruits, mild spices and faint dark bread. Creamy texture. Flavorfull, yet in perfect balance. A really fine one.

kappldav123 (4738) - GERMANY - NOV 15, 2011
Thanks to bierkoning for that one. Bottle looks simple but good. Beer in the glass brownish, nice head. Starts strong, fine spicy, some sourish notes. Nice caramel notes in the background, but the finish is dominated by dry alcoholic notes. Starts better than it ends.

Borresteijn (4574) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JUL 10, 2011
On tap at the brewpub. Slightly hazy amber brown colour, dense off white head. Aroma of sweet malts, light fruity, flowery, caramel. Flavour is sweet, malty, fruity, toffee, nice grassy bitter finish. Medium bodied, slick. A lot better than the previous Molenbier imo. Very nice.

UPDATED: JAN 9, 2013 30/XII/12 - 33cl bottle @ home: De Molen & assorted beers tasting - bottled: 8/IV/12 (2012-1415) Thanks to Sebletitje for sharing the bottle!

Clear deep orange to amber beer, huge fizzy off-white head, unstable, non adhesive. Aroma: very smelly, swimming pool, citrus, peppermint, herbal. MF: lots of carbon, light to medium body. Taste: bitter start, herbal hops, pretty spicy, sourish, cocoa powder. Aftertaste: very bitter, cardboard, bit spicy, dry, hint of sugar. Tastes like the bottle is 5 years old, but it’s only 8 months old!
