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.

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.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

Thx. to Sebletitje for sharing this one // 33 cl. bottle sampled @ Tim’s De Molen & assorted beers tasting // bottled on 08/04/2012 // pours a bright golden / light amber with a fluffy white head // smell is of sweet white bread, hops, sugar, fruits, sweet herbs & even more sweet spices, cheap American cheese slices & touch of yogurt // taste is yoghurt, sugar, American cheese slices, light vegetables, bitter herbs, lots of Molen yeast, flowers, thick baking floor, bakers yeast, herbal bitter // full Molen yeasty body // its weird but I don’t think that it infected or anything, Molen sometimes simply brews this kinds of herbal / spice / whatever beers & they taste like this, even fresh, prefect condition, whatever,… // its not my thing but I didn’t find it as atrocious as the others, just weird stuff

Bottled. The aroma has citric hops, caramel, toffee malts, light toasted, oranges, hint of spice (cinnamon or something alike). Hazy, orange-brown coloured beer with an off-white, creamy and rocky, big head. The taste is light-moderate bitter initially and has caramel malty sweetness. The finish is more citric hopbitter. Medium bodied. Good.

Pours deep hazy gold into a tulip. Off-white head with good retention recedes leaving sheet lacing. Sour tropical fruit aromas. Sweet dry caramel with nutty toast and hay in the middle and a lasting bitter earth finish.
