From an unchilled bootle. Floral aroma, quite sweet, almost soapy taste. Maybe not at it’s best condition

uckelman (384) - Durham, ENGLAND - JUN 20, 2015
Pours opaque orange-amber. Medium amount of light tan head. Aroma is mainly orange peel, with a bit of pine. Has that rich aroma like most things from De Molen. Not very bitter, and rather orangey. Velvety body. Sour finish.

javiercrasher (219) - Granada, SPAIN - MAY 16, 2015
Bottle on: 2013-09-02 De color naranja cobre, un poco turbia y mate. Espuma de escasa retención. Aroma cítrico, principalmente naranja, y con algo de toffee. Bastante cuerpo y poco gas. En boca entra resinosa y amarga. Sin ser alcohólica si que tienen presencia sus 8 grados. Final amargo y duradero. Por sus características y lo intensa que resulta casi si podría decir que es una american barley wine.

beerman33190 (76) - FRANCE - MAY 13, 2015
Attractive amber colour, creamy off-white head. Over-ripe fruit, pineapple,musty, earthy, blue cheese aromas. Taste is quite sweet up-front, tangy, grapefruit notes following. Palate is perhaps too rich for me with the initial sweetness. After-taste not too bitter. Very good.

skortila (4821) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - APR 26, 2015
Bottled. 30cl sample. The aroma has toffee, caramel, raisin, orange. Hazy, orange-brown coloured beer with an off-white, medium, lasting head. The taste is moderate bitter, has toffee sweetness, oranges, dried fruits. Pretty nice, considering the fact that I should have drink this one 1,5 year ago. :-) Now it’s Barley wine-ish.

Rammer (349) - Moscow, RUSSIA - APR 16, 2015
Very sweet aroma and flavor. Plum, fermented fruit. More like a barley wine. Maybe because of the bottling 09.13

wyzzywyz22 (2094) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - MAR 18, 2015
Bottle, Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham. Hazy dark orange pour with a small off white head. Sweet, fruity beak with some caramel malt and piney hop present. Quite thick mouthfeel, gentle carbonation. Similarly sweet flavour with notes of peach, orange, booze, malts. Dry, fruity finish. Hops not really shining enough for me here, but not without its charm.

KyotoLefty (7453) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JAN 26, 2015
Bottle from Taniguchi. Big, fruity, floral nose, oranges, peaches and cream, a touch of strawberry, chocolate, vanilla, caramel. Complex nose indeed. Deep orange-brown with a low, fine, thick head. Sweet and fruity, citrus and stone. Very sweet, actually, too much, with a bitter finish. Somewhat soda-like. Interesting flavors but the syrupy sweetness puts me off.
