Joen (45) - Tricht, NETHERLANDS - APR 6, 2010
33cl bottle. Pale coloured beer with off-coloured head. Fruity hoppy cheesy odour. Hoppy flavour, but not offensive flavour, just mild. A balanced non- sweet taste. Mouthfeel is a bit thick. It evolves naturally to a beautiful hop bitter aftertaste.

Vaiz (4258) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAR 4, 2010
Bottle at home. Pours a hazy dark orange color with a thick foamy white head that leaves a lot of lacing. Aroma is hoppy with grass, some floral notes and is slightly sharp. Flavor is hoppy bitter with some sweetness which reminds me of flower honey. Very long, slightly sharp bitter finish. Decent carbonation and a creamy texture. Nice brew, although with some rough edges.

KnutAlbert (6710) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 23, 2010
Bottle. Lovely hop showcase. Loads of carboanation, a fairly neutral malt base to give the Saaz hops plenty of room to play. Flowers, grass, long lingering aroma.

pivnizub (10136) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - JUN 12, 2010
Bottle (75cl, #27): Deep golden to light amber coloured, hazy, big fluffy stable off-white head; piney-hoppy and fruity nose with a caramelly background, spiced with a light tinge of cinnamon; solid bitter-sweet flavour, medium bodied; solid lingering finish with a caramelly counterweight. The right stuff.......

thebeertourist (5187) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 19, 2010
Bottle from De Bierkoning. Cloudy orangey golden with a huge offwhite head. Potent grassy and spicy hops, very rounded and complex, especially in the mouth. Good, harmonious bitterness. Another De Molen masterpiece.

Bottle from Řlbutikken, Cph. Pours clear deep golden with a big creamy off-white head.Nice strong grassy hop aroma, some sweeter aromas as well. Taste is full of citrus, peach and sweet caramel. Oily mouthfel. Ends dry and bitter, lingering on for ever with those nice hops in the background. Splendid!

Bottle @ home. Aroma is big herbal and spicy hops, touch of malt in the background. Flavour is intense hops, bitter but not too much, mostly spicy. Nice.

Bottle from Bierkoning. Murky orange body with tall, lasting head. Hoppy head with grapefruit notes. Full taste of hops, citrus and pretty bitter. Gets spicier and messier towards the end.
