Martinus (4285) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - JAN 1, 2013
Hazy brown colour, off-white head. Aroma of cheese and malts. Light bitter flavour, hops, and quite a bit of off-flavours, fusel oils and medicine. Finish light hops and cheese.
Not sure what was the matter with this bottle, but it wasn’t really pleasurable I’m afraid. Might warrant a re-rate.
(From 33cL bottle at the DMT @ Tim’s living, Gent. Shared by sebletitje. Thanks, Seba!)

The_Osprey (4235) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 24, 2013
Slightly chilled bottle. Two years and one day old. Dark orange/red with the usual huge head which endures. Smell - old ale, caramel, yeast, molasses, tangerine. Carbonation - mid to soft. Taste - typical De Molen caramel, liquorice, sweet honey flavours with a decent dose of bitterness. Enjoyable high quality beer. Not quite to my taste though, which reduces the rating slightly.

Aniela (4207) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUL 3, 2012
From a 33 cl bottle. Nice amber clear beer with a big lacy offwhite/beige head. Malty, sweet, fruity, hoppy aroma. Roasted, malty, alcohol flavour with some metallic notes. Not De Molens best beer.

dEnk (4199) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAR 6, 2012
Bottle. Aroma is loads of caramel, some fruity and spice, all covered in spicy hops. Flavour is medium sweet with caramel and fruit, touch of hop bitterness. Nice one.

SlovakSniper (4147) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 1, 2012
Molenbier (33 cl, Embouteillée le 23/06/2011. Une dégustation offerte par rodenbach99) La surprise de la soirée. Une belle robe ambrée et sa mousse durable. Une belle dentelle. Un conditionnement satisfaisant. Un beau nez de caramel et de houblons, une touche fruitée qui provient de la levure? Des saveurs caramélisées qui sont stimulées par des houblons au profil herbeux. Une bonne sensation en bouche. Un corps, des bulles et une texture bien enlignés. Une finale davantage maltée que houblonnée. Simplement agréable.

Vaiz (4052) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JUL 22, 2011
Bottle. Clear deep red pour, thick creamy off-white head. Aroma of grassy and floral hops and some tea leaves. Flavor is a nice balance between strong bitter hops and a nice rich malt base. Thick body and very drinkable.

visionthing (3887) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 1, 2012
Bottle from Vinmonopolet, Vika. Pours lightly clouded amber with a huge, frothy off-white head. Aroma of yeast, spices and malt with earthy notes. Smells a bit strange, but quite pleasant taste.

_angst_ (3840) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - FEB 1, 2012
330 ml bottle bought @ Bierzwerg.de. Pours hazy amber with a big frothy off-white head that clings to the glass and leaves some lacing on it while slowly dissipating. Smell is sweet with sweet fruits like plums and raisins, caramel, alcohol and some hints of peaches and citrus. Taste is malty, bitter and slightly metallic with minerals, resin, dandelions and pine. Finish is dry and very bitter. Weird one this one, not sure what I think…
