thanatosti (975) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 10, 2013
75 cl. bottle @ Rick, bottle shared by Ivo. Amber with a white head. Aroma is sweetish with orange and some malts. Taste is rather on the sweet side but with enough bitterness. That this beer is old, brewed in 2011, is maybe the cause of this sweetness but other than that the taste is really good. Well concealed alcohol.

hopbel (19) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 13, 2013
Een grapefruit die aan het paren is met een onrijpe meloen. Sex-luchtje dus. De smaak is marmelade-sherry achtig. Staat me een beetje tegen op het moment hoewel ik gek ben op sex, marmelade, sherry en bier.

GSAP (525) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 27, 2013
75cl fles, 9,2%. Aroma van vers fruit, sinaasappelsap, suikerwater en licht kruidig. Smaak is wat dieper zoet, scherpte wat tegen gaat staan, fijne afdronk, licht bitter. Bier groeit niet tijdens drinken.

jonas (5844) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - SEP 28, 2012
Bottle, 8.5% bb 24.2.15. Hazy amber, no head. Smoke and rye bread aroma, leaves, bit of alcohol, old ale like. Dry chewy body, mellow mouthfeel. Light wooden and toasty, herbal and grassy in the back, roasted and chocolaty, great balance. Great beer, look forward to try the new version as well.

stobbe74 (3789) - DENMARK - NOV 21, 2011
Pours a clear and dark copper beer with floaties and an offwhite head. The aroma is malt, caramel and hops. The flavor follows the nose with additional alcohol and sweetness. The palate is alcoholwarmth and sweetness. Overall a beer below average.

Martinus (3054) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - OCT 20, 2011
Slightly cloudy yellow, fluffy white head. Aroma of hops, grapefruit, citrus, grapes, slight passion fruit, malts and spicy yeast. Flavour malty with strong hop signature, pronounced bitterness, citrus, some sweetness. Dry hoppy finish. Quite a lot of yeast remaining in the bottle, the last 1/5 of the bottle turns up very hazy with yeast.
Molenbier, ABV 9,2%, BB 28/11/12.
Do have a feeling the beer in this bottle might be an alias or another beer, due to the big differences in aroma and colour in the descriptions.. Very tasty though.
(75cL bottle @ home, bought at the local windmill in Nijmegen)
