3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottled, BBE 28.04.2009) Hazy amber with a smallish, bubbly head. Strongly aromatic-hoppy, slightly stingy-solventy aroma of dried fruit, yeast, and fermented strawberries. Toffee-malty, slightly stuffy flavor with fermented strawberries and homebrewish yeastiness. Light to medium body with foamy carbonation. Quite good for a steam beer, but I don’t like the style because of the general stuffiness.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled. Amber colour, small yellowish white head. Aroma is interestingly floral and fruity with some grassyness as well as a nice sweetishness I haven’t come accross in other beers so far. Flavour is much the same, some slight sweetness from malts along with fruity/grassy and floral hops. A rather dry finish. A nice one from de Molen!

Bottled 75cl (BB 04/2009)
Hazy amber color, small white head. Strong grassy-floral hoppy aroma. Foamy mouthfeel. Grapefruity, dry hoppy flavor with pinewood plank woody notes. Another good beer from Molen. This one is perhaps just a bit too dry.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A little hazy orange/amber colored beer, with a nice beige foamy head. A small lace on the glass. The aroma of malts and American hop. A little grassy in the back. The taste of American hop bitter, some dark fruits with citrus. A little sweet in the back. The aftertaste is dry bitter and a little burning. A more than good summer beer.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled at Monk’s Café, Stockholm. Cloudy amber, rich airy head. An aroma of peach and juicy mango that jumps at me. Fairly dry with medium body. Rounded and unassaulting with mild malt covered in aromatic hops. After the initial surge of hop aroma it dies off, and becmes more relaxed. The bitterness is surprisingly low, but still evident.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. [thank you, bierkoning]
Pours a lightly hazy copper with a big, frothy, slightly yellowish head. Wonderful aroma, lots of hops, pine, fruitiness, wine gums, apples, blueberries. Mouthfeel is pleasant, lightly carbonated, fresh and lively still. Flavour is mildly malty, some caramel and apples. Some very balnced dryness and fruity, hoppy bitterness. A very nice hop for dry-hopping. Great!
