3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330 ml bottle.
Classic De Molen bottle. Massive pop when opened and foam everywhere. Managed to save two thirds of the bottle. Pours a hazy orange colour with a massive foamy head. Aroma of lemon, sweet orange and some toffee. Flavour of sweet harsh malts, orange, wheat, lemon and some chewy bitterness. Light bodied, dryish mouthfeel and a dry, fruity, malty finish. A bit too musty.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
20th March 2010
Hazy amber beer, no head. Light malt nose with a whisper of banana. Crispy palate but the carbonation is modest. Semi dry. Saison like malts and a subtle undertone of orange and banana. A little spice in the dry finish. Not bad but a little more carbonation would be good.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Light golden, large head and mostly lasting head. Moderate, malty - wheaty and sweetish aroma, fruitiness - berries, some banana, light hoppyness and spiciness (coriander). Body is medium, malty – lightly wheaty and lightly sweetish flavor, faint fruitiness and banana, some hoppyness and spiciness. Finish is short to average, malty – some wheat and dryish, sharp spiciness and hoppyness. Nice aroma - in the finish hoppyness and spiciness get too sharp (carbonation). Interesting, but aroma/flavor not in balance.
