erickok (3424) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - JUN 13, 2013
Golden glowing body under a small yet stable off white head. Pleasant English like hop mix, biscuit and nutty malt base. Cookies, too. Smooth body which is spot on for this type of (very) strong Belgian ale. Good bitterness underlying the dangerously smooth taste. If anything the ending is somewhat short and harsh but I’m very positive about this brew overall. De Molen isn’t know for Belgian ales, but this again shows the brewer’s amazing knowledge and inherit feel for flavour. Deserves a high rating. (33cl bottle traded with Rob, thanks!)

motelpogo (6309) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - MAR 3, 2014
on tap at the de molen stand at braukunst llive 2014. a rich shade of golden with a thin yet fluffy head; aroma was so full of orange marmelade that i kept thinking about my grandma molly; soft, drinkable body; spot-on balance between sweet and tangy - bread and butter pudding covered with very zesty orange marmelade. much fresher and more invigorating than most strong belgain ales i’ve had lately

Bottle. Orange and clear. Powerful and sweet but so easy to drink that it should carry a government health warning. Another good one from this lovely brewery
