jonas (6175) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - AUG 28, 2013
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.

mR_fr0g (6036) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 29, 2015
Bottle shared at Leighton’s gaff. Thanks to Colin Bois. Clouded reddy amber coloured pour with a small halo of offwhite head. Aroma is sweet berry, farmyard, farty, strawberry, nutty, berry. Flavour is composed of sweet, nutty toffee grains, fruity berry. Palate is slightly sticky, moderate carbonation, grainy on the tongue and a little thin. Bit too sweet and lacks depth.

Bottle from De Molen. Poured a cloudy medium brown with a long-lasting thin white head. The aroma is caramel treacle toffee alcohol. The flavour is medium bitter sweet with a rich sweet malt alcoholic palate and a smooth short bitter finish. Medium bodied with fizzy carbonation.

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

caesar (5877) - 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.

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.

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.
