SlovakSniper (3196) - Candiac/Frelighsburg, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 17, 2010
(Bouteille de 33 cl, numéro 510 de 712. Courtoisie de rodenbach99. Merci!) Le liquide dévoile une robe de miel orangée. La tête mousseuse est grandiose et persistante. Présence d’une belle dentelle. Des arômes de houblons fruités (tropicaux) et floraux s’articulent autour d’un malt doux et bien sucré. L’alcool signale sa présence avec des effluves parfumés qui se confondent aux fleurs de houblons. Au goût, l’attaque vient principalement des houblons et de leurs saveurs de fruits, de fleurs et de résine. Les grains maltés sont présents mais préfèrent la discrétion. En bouche, le liquide a une densité plus élevée que la normale avec une effervescence qui s’assagit au fil des gorgées et une texture huileuse. La finale est mordante avec cette superbe amertume qui se manifeste avec vigueur et qui perdure. En résumé, une bière solide et impressionnante.

tmrmwel (960) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 13, 2010
"Bottel" 488 (brewed 11. March, bottled 12. April). Wow! This pours an unclear brownish colour, with a massive, staying head. The aroma is amazing, with a very pleasant fruitiness and sweet hints of strawberry and honey. A full body hits you with a good, caramelly malt, with a slight hint of toffee, and finishes of in a dry, bitter finish of citrus. The carbonation is not really that aggressive, but due to the marked yeast residue it goes on and on, adding to both the palate and the everlasting head. What starts of as a fabulous IPA, ends up as an extraordinary ESB hybrid, with a long, bitter aftertaste.

arturorg (52) - SPAIN - OCT 11, 2010
Served into a Flying Dog pint glass A: Hazy brownish with a 1 inch white frothy head with no visible carbonation. Small lace S: Malt, fruity (Passion fruit I think from the amarillo hop), bitter T: sweet at first, puckering, not very bitter. Thin bodied. Feel a little bit of carbonation. Good but could be better for De Molen standards, top notch brewery...

UPDATED: FEB 26, 2012 Re-rate 2/22/12: Bottle sample at a tasting at Dagan’s place. Thanks Tom. Clear golden. Powerful hoppy tropical fruits aroma (mango, lychee and more).
