larsga (7117) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 7, 2011
Gusher. Big offwhite head. Hazy deep red body with strong carbonation. Fruity sugary funky aroma with wooden notes. Dry-sweet resiny wooden fruity taste with sugary roasty notes. Mid-bodied. Slightly harsh mouthfeel. Harshly bitter wooden resiny aftertaste with funky sugary notes. Too harsh, sweet, and funky. Disharmonic. (0.33l bottle, wine monopoly, Vika, Oslo.)

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

jmgreenuk (6970) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - FEB 14, 2014
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.

KnutAlbert (6604) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 11, 2011
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.

jonas (6540) - 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.

caesar (6379) - 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.

Flaske 0,33l fra Vinmonopolet Oslo, Vika. Fortært 31 Okt 11. Gyldenbrun. Uklar. Høyt kremaktig skum som varer lenge. Antydning til honning i aromaen. Forsiktig mandelsmak. Tørr fruktig bitterhet i ettersmaken. På det jevne.

Borresteijn (6087) - Zaandam, 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.

tiong (6086) - Espoo, FINLAND - JAN 28, 2012
330ml bottle

Pours reddish orange with a medium foamy white head. Aroma has notes of berries, earthy notes, malts and gooseberry. Taste of berries, malts and caramel. Finish is quite bitter with some fruity notes. A bit unbalanced, berries dominate the taste a bit too much.
