2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Biggest (and only) disapointment from De Molen so far. Poors murky yellow with absolutly no head. The aroma is somewhat fruity with peach and banana but has alot of rough phenols aswell. Thick lemonade palate and sweetness with a harsh almost bitter alchohol finish. Rough brew.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle #1211 33cl (brewed 28.3.2009)
Thanks bierkoning! Slightly hazy amber color, small white head. Acidic, fresh wood, woody hoppyness with white pepper in the nose. Overall quite sweet and fruity. Molasses, fresh wood, peach, lychee, overriped banana, underlying hoppyness, also some alcohol. Odd "imperial saison", almost like malt liquer. Too sweet for my liking.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Must have had this at CPH BF in May 09 but never rated it. Botella, Hazy orange colour with a nice white head, good lasting. The aroma has a mild sweetness with yeast, alcohol, grapes and some fruitiness. Good mouthfeel. The flavour is yeasty with grapes and alcohol along with some maltiness, a light tartness and some spice.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled 0.75l at Kaisla. Slightly sweet and fruity nose. No head. Pale amber colour slightly hazy. Quite sweet taste. Some hints of strawberries in the taste. After adding the bottom of the bottle made the beer really hazy. Colour turned to yellow. Taste gave hints of yeast. Slight dissappointment. Too sweet. Lack of carbonation.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled@Monks Café Sveavägen, Stockholm. Hazy orangeish amber colour with mediumsized off-white head. Aroma is caramel, some mild barnyardy notes as well as earth, and some sugary sweet notes (the alcohol?). Flavour is quite much the same in a very nice balance. Smooth. Flavour hides the alcohol quite well.

Bottled. Amber coloured. Unclear. Almost no head, but a little fluffy thingy notable. Aroma of grape, sweetness, yeast and fruits. Flavour of caramel, fruits, sugar, grape and yeast. Medium bodied. Dry grapy and fruity end.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Hazy hazel pour, no head, some bubbles.
Aroma of roasted malts with faint fruits, spices and yeast.
Very sweet yeasty fruit flavour, practically no carbonation.
I think it would be a lot better with more carbonation.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
33cl bottle 1208. Lacking carbonation.
Slightly hazy dark golden with hardly any head. The aroma is filled with bready malt, on top of dried fruits, spices and a little alcohol. Flat and sweet vineous flavour with bready malt and a spicy finish. I assume if if it had gotten the right carbonation it would also have been drier, which would have been an advantage.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Ølbutikken - Beer 33 cl. stamped nr. 153. Appereantly its Molen day for me today...and normally that meens a good day. The pour is surprisingly low on carbonation. Its dark hazy yellow without any head what so ever - almost like granmas old freshly pressed apple juice. The nose is malty with hints of fruity vinegar and a thick undifinable sweetness. Its flat so flat witout any carbonation - thats what hits you first - it doesn’t suit it. Some hops and sweet sourness leaves an unpleassant bitterness with a sweet finish where tha alcohol is up front. I’m not happy. The palate is oily - like a thick juice or thin smoothie...damn

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at home. Pours a dead flat hazy orange without any form of a head. Fruity spicy aroma. Bittersweet fruity flavor with some peach and spices. A little too sweet. No carbonation at all which makes it more of an alcoholic lemonade syrup with too little water added. Would be a lot better with at least a little carbonation.
